The SEO Friendly Link was first used as a way to output the URL to a product or page within a show-data without edit buttons. However since this more attributes and tags have been added to make this simpler. The tag does still have some uses though, below are some examples of how you can still use the SEO Friendly Link.
In some cases you may want to output the URL to the page you are currently viewing. This is commonly used with "Share" buttons or other instances where you may need to send the link to another person or service.
You may, when writing content in editable areas or web pages, want to link to a product or category that may inevitably change name which would change the URL. This would be if the link was hard-coded you'd need to manually change the links. Using an SEO Freidnly Link however would mean if you did change the name, the link would update without you taking action.
