    Hey peeps!

    What do you feel is the best SEO wise way to format your URL's given this example:

    You own tools.com and the search term you are wanting to hit was the term "Makita Tools" would it be best to use tools.com/makita or tools.com/makita-tools or it does not matter either way.

    Cheers!

    I don't really think it matters as much as you think. The URL should be user friendly and should contain a keyword in it.

    Using your example it would be:

    1) tools.com/makita for a general tools page. Like the company's page.
    2) tools.com/makita/specific-tool This could be used for a product page

    You can go either way. However, I would go with "tools.com/makita-tools. It's more definitive.
