SEO URLs are very important for both SEO and user. URLs help to describe a web page to search engines and potential visitors. Admin should be able to create an accurate web page easily to reading URLs. It is the best way to optimize every web page around one keyword. this keyword should be included in the URLs. Admin should use hyphens to separate words in URLs. This is important to both readability and search engine optimization. We should use hyphens instead of underscores.

Ocmultivendor string change
"ocmultivendor" is the keyword for multivendor pages only. We can change this keyword. If you want to this keyword then you will have to follow the given steps.
First, you will have to go to the base directory. you will get a config.php file. First of all, we will open the config.php file and add a constant variable in this file. This variable name will be "MULTIVENDOR_URL". we will set the value of the MULTIVENDOR_URL variable.
In the config file, there should be a variable named MULTIVENDOR_URL. When this variable is not defined, the default value "ocmultivendor" will be used. When the value is defined, the value from the admin config file should be used in all URLs in place of "ocmultivendor".
After setting the variable, we will see this SEO URL like this.
in the above SEO URLs, you will see "purpletree" keyword. This "purpletree" keyword is coming from config.php. you can change this keyword anytime. this keyword will work on the multivendor only. For example, we will see the browse seller link on the opencart header.
Just like that, we will see all SEO URLs for all multivendor pages. This feature hides the extension/account/purpletree_multivendor/ word from all URL and set the SEO URLs from the config.php file.
