Identificador de recurso usando id y descripción textual en URL ... ¿por qué no solo id?

Many websites use the following convention for identifying REST-based resources...

gizmodo.com/453387/new-mobile-app-for-traveling-time

Si el id portion of the url, 453387, uniquely identifies the resource, what's the point of adding new-mobile-app-for-traveling-time at the end of the URL?

I guess they use such URL for SEO reasons.

I've never done SEO, so I've never looked at it that way, but that makes sense - rafia

Also to make the url more human readable.
