Stop words SEO are words such as ‘at’, ‘any’, ‘before’, ‘which’. While having putting together some New York City pictures for my NYC Moments website I took the other day I found myself learning more about SEO. I put together a little list of stop words in SEO. Using them in your permalink is therefore a waste of valuable space.

Removing stop words from your permalink will give you more space for keywords.
