    Is it affect SEO?


    Greetings of the day
    It's a silly question but I am getting confused.
    The issue is, I have a website abc.com and a blog page and the URL is like abc.com/blog
    and I want when I post something on the blog, the title of the blog post is added to the URL and look like
    abc.com/blog/post-title as I saw it on everyone's blog
    But the problem is when I make any post and publish on blog and open that post then that post doesn't look as i want
    abc.com/blog/post-title, the blog is replaced by blogs and the URL look like
    abc.com/blogs/post-title
    so I would like to know is there any issue if I publish any post on the "blog" and when I click on the post then that gonna be show on "blogs"
    or it is a URL issue?

    Just off chance, did you create a directory and name it "Blogs" ? If this is the case, just rename the directory to "Blog" and make the appropriate changes in, (and I am assuming here), WordPress and you should be ok.

    No, it's not Wordpress.
    No, I didn't create a directory, it is done by the developer and when I said to him I want it abc.com/blog/post-title then he replied me it not possible for that you require a new page so he named that blogs. I don't understand why it is not possible?
    So there is any issue I keep the same blog and blogs both

    I don't see any issues, aside that most sites use "blog" not "blogs" I would consider it a non-issue.

    If you do decide to keep both, then use a redirect to make blogs go to blog. This will help in the duplicate content issues and keep the pages from competing with each other. No one will ever see the blogs version of the page. Also use a rel=canonical tag as well on the blogs page to point to the blog page just in case you mess up the redirects.

    You answered it with "not seeing any problem" but I thought I'd clarify it because of the op asked "is it affect seo" ya know it's hard to answer in English when the op doesn't understand the language.

    i know this is possible if you're publishing a page (not post). i do this all the time.

    i have a parent page named blogs and everything i publish uses it as a parent page, so it will look like abc.com/blogs/title-of-the-page
