    Default Keyword stuffing in URL for local SEO

    Im about to launch a new website, with an exact domain like keywordcity.ccTLD

    Ive seen that some other websites in my niche use URLs like :
    HTML Code:
    domain.TLD/city
    domain.TLD/keyword-city
    keywordvariation1.TLD/keyword_city
    keywordvariation2.TLD/city-keyword
    you know what I mean...
    Since I have an excellent domain name (lets hope!), is there any SEO advantage in having this kind of keywords stuffed in the URL? I think that the repetition of keywords will just make for unfriendly URLs.

    HTML Code:
    keywordcity.ccTLD <-- Main content here
    vs
    HTML Code:
    keywordcity.ccTLD<-- entry page
    keywordcity.ccTLD/keywordvariation <-- main content here

    I've been doing the same thing. The benefits to your keyword being first is seeing the words in bold in organic results. This will increase your CTR, obviously. This only matters, of course, if you're in the top 5 (or so) results. As far as ranking goes, I'm hesitant to even postulate, given how G loves to change the playing field. Based on my experience of having one local site which is not an EMD and several that are, I'd say KeywordLocation is best. But don't take my word for it!

    Doing that would increase your CTR rate. However, Google may not like it since it's a bit manipulative.
