I can’t speak for everyone, but I use request uri too long when I’m writing.
I think a lot of these complaints might be a result of not knowing how to write properly. The fact is that request uri is a very short form of the more verbose URIs. It’s not the same thing, but you should be able to figure out the difference between the two. The more verbose form doesn’t include the part, and so you get a lot longer uris.
I don’t see why anyone would need to request too long, so in the future I suggest you use the shorter form. As for the length of URIs, you can always change it for your own site, or use a long one. But I would recommend you just stick with the shorter version, like I just did.
I think the point of request uri is that the more verbose uris are more likely to be picked up by search engines, so it makes sense to use them. There are a lot of reasons why people use long uris, but here’s one: it forces you to think more about what your URIs are. If you put the whole thing on one line you are forcing people to figure out what your URIs are.
The shortening of uri’s is a very common thing in SEO. It is a good tactic to use, but it can also get you into trouble. The longer uris force you to think more about what uris are, which is why it is bad for SEO.
In general, when you use a long URI, you force people to research your site more, which means they can Google your site and do a lot of their own research. That’s a good thing. The bad thing is when they do their own research and they use your site you get stuck with a longer URI. You have to make sure that you never use a long URI that is so long that it becomes a 404. You want to make sure that people are able to find your site.
I think this is a good reason to use uris that are under a few kilobytes. It makes it so that your uris are easy to remember. They have to be short, and also don’t have to include a host or path. You may want to consider using your uris to represent a series of pages, like a series of “jobs” or “contact” pages.
There are two main reasons why you should use a short URI on your site: One, it makes it more difficult for search engines to index your site. For example, if your page is on then the browser will send it to be indexed by This becomes a problem when you have a long URI that ends in a.aspx or.php.
Second, shorter URIs can make your site easier to crawl and index. While this is obviously the opposite of all the good things about longer URIs, it can lead to lower bounce rates, because the search engine bots do have to crawl and index your site.
