    It depends how you construct them, if you keyword stuff, then bad, if you keep them natural then good.

    Shortest url possible, as concise and to the point of the page as possible, and exact match as long as their isn't already that keyword in the url previously (that includes the domain name).

    the more exact the keyword in your URL the less aggressive you can go with your anchor text and vice versa: less keyword in URL more aggressive with anchors. Both has its ups and downs

    Don't stuff. Use the full title in URL, it will look natural also produce some good results.

    Keep it short and remove generic words.

    Doesn't matter really I guess.. just't don't stuff it with keywords and unnecessary words. A url should also be visually appealing

    The shorter, the better. Sometimes I type direct urls to blog posts I want to read again in my address bar without having to visit the blog and click on the post I want to read if the url is short, e.g. http://www.viperchill.com/new-seo
