The sites can be really slow or at least not fast enough. Basically the first thing you can do is to check speed on different metrics and as a result you will get the list of recommendations about how to speed up your site. Not all of them require technical development skills, and can simply be done from the admin panel. In this post I will show you a few simple steps to speed up your Magento 2.0 site using admin panel.

Today I will explain you how to rewrite URL’s in Magento 2.0.
I’ve created a product and named it “Camera”. The real location of the product is catalog/product/view/id/2075 where 2025 is the ID of the product.
Magento automatically uses the name of the product to generate an URL. And my customers will be able to access the product using the following URL: domain.com/camera.html.
But if I don’t like the automatically generated URL, how can I change it?
Go to Marketing -> URL Rewrites.
I find the product in the list and click on it.
This is what I see:
In Target Path you can see the real location of your product. And Request Path is the path that was automatically generated by Magento.
I change Request Path and write, “camera_example” instead.
I press “Save”.
Now I can access the product using the following URL: domain.com/camera_example.
