Oct 28, 2010 – When I say slugs, I do not mean the distant, unshelled cousins of snails. In the internet, slugs are the URL-friendly version of your permalink.

    What’s a slug? What do I use it for? Thanks and God bless! jtonline. Member Posted 2 years ago #. http://codex.wordpress.org/Glossary#Slug 

    And actually from my experience I think that the slug is iportaint to have in your post as well in an h1 tag the also having it somewhere else in the post and maybe in like an image alt tag or something.  That’s if you care to rank high for that slug.
    I hope this helps some and you won’t have to go past this post to feel comfortable with slugs.
