Madness on the Ford website
Ford, the car giants behind the Focus, Mondeo, GT, Fiesta to name just a few have some weird behaviour on their website.
What I noticed
Whamming "ford.co.uk" into Opera's address bar redirected me to a rather fugly url:
Eh? I thought, are they seriously using different folders for different browsers or just employing some bizarre virtual mappings.
Using Firefox 2 made the url:
What the jazz?
I don't know what it's doing but I don't see how that's possibly good practice or acceptable for SEO purposes. Mapping a URL into website.com/browser/home/-/rt/rt_home/-/-/-/- etc isn't good and I don't understand why.
Shame on you Ford for not using clean URL's. Shame on you indeed. Of course if you know the reason why you'd want to do this then please leave me comments - it's the only way I'll learn!
