This help to prevent URL duplication in search engines.

Can give your site a little juice. Should be working on this slowly by adding quality backlinks deep in your site content.

LSI-latent semantic indexing or related keyword to your initial keyword.

Ex: let’s say your post is based on growing tomatoes, you will also rank for “how to grow tomatoes” because it is in your content. LSI’s are based off of your content. Can see in Google Webmaster tools

To Lower Bounce Rate: Place your CTA in a noticeable area and make it effective.
