Best way to proceed - category and page keyword stuffing?

    Hi Guys,

    I am creating an authority site, but I am a bit worried about keyword stuffing in the category and page titles - for example (not my actual site obviously):

    footballbootsdatabase.com/boot-profiles/adidas-boots/adidas-boots-reviews

    Is there any need for the 'adidas-boots' bit in the last bit, because I feel that is keyword stuffing? Should I just use 'review' instead?

    The reason I ask is if I use exactly the same structure for all brands... i.e:

    footballbootsdatabase.com/boot-profiles/adidas-boots/adidas-boots-reviews

    footballbootsdatabase.com/boot-profiles/nike-boots/nike-boots-reviews etc....

    ...if someone enters footballbootsdatabase.com/reviews then it goes to the adidas boots page review automatically. Does it matter that there are going to more than one page titled 'reviews' if they are all within different categories and sub-categories?

    I hope all of that makes sense!

    Thanks!

    I would ditch the categories using a plugin and just have a good URL.

    Having it in your title is good, but stuffing is bad :-(

    A lot of it though depends on your whole site - if all your URL's are like that then Google is definitely going to notice and penalize - 1 page though, probably not an issue.

    Your links should be:
    footballbootsdatabase.com/boot-profiles/adidas-reviews/Terrex-Fast-X-Mid
    footballbootsdatabase.com/boot-profiles/adidas-reviews/Holtanna-II-CP-Primaloft
    footballbootsdatabase.com/boot-profiles/nike-reviews/Lunar-Force-1

    If you wish to make a category about sweaters, you should modify the first segment to "sweater-profile". If you wish to stay in boot category, but different category than reviews, should obviously replace "reviews" with whatever in second segment. This is also helping for siloing.
