Easy to Memorize Click-Through-Rate SEO Better Visibility and More Personalize
If users have short URLs or custom URLs according to what they are on your website it will be easy for them to remember their profile addresses (URLs) and thus easy to share. By using Short URLs and customize URLs you can increase your CTR as you will get more user engagement due to more personalization and profile visibility. Members will share their profile to tell their friends, family and relatives about their presence on your website. The Custom slug URL will enable you to choose any word which reflects your site’s concept and thus the URL will be visible when someone search for that word in any search engine. Short URLs in profile may also help you in increasing number of clicks. With Custom URL slug, your members can find better visibility for them on your website and will thus get more personalization. As if you have some professionals on your website, then you can simply showcase their profiles with www.yourwebsite.com/professionals/username.

This is another great plug-in by the SES team. We recommend it to anyone with a social network. It is a great way to allow your members to have unique Profile addresses. The short url makes much more sense for aesthetics.

Didn't play well with other plugins YMMV
Recommended by Gerry Humphrey on July 1st, 2018 at 2:56am

When I enabled the short URL, it didn’t play well with other third-party plugins messing up the page. You might have a different experience and I recommend if you need something like this to at least try it. I really think it was an issue with the other plugins and not this. Hope it works for you because it is a cool feature.

Smart Plugin.

It only makes sense to have this plugin. This makes things easier for everyone. I'm surprised the Social Engine script doesn't have this built in...My favorite part about this plugin, It's Free !!!

Thank you SocialEngineSolutions
