www.ryerson.ca/ce/publicrelations

Bad URL

One more from the Good URL Bad URL mailbag. Ms. Emma snagged this SERP-er Bad URL. Surely they could've streamlined their navigation or at least created a redirect so we don't have to look at "ca" and "ce" next to each other. Phil Connors? Is that You? It's me, Ned Ryerson! Needlenose Ned. Ned the head.

Update 8/12: Here's the kicker, looks like this is a true vanity URL as the actual destination page is http://ce-online.ryerson.ca/ce_2008-2009/calendar/default.asp?section=program&sub=cert&cert=PUBREL00&mode=program. So apparently these guys thought they were doing us a favor by shrinking that long URL to www.ryerson.ca/ce/publicrelations.

Looks like someone got lazy at Ryerson Marketing...when google changed their url policy, perhaps?

Who knows. Just realized that this URL is actually a redirect. Makes it even worse. Updated my post to bash it even more.
