    Let's imagine my site is about dogs and I have content ready to launch, the only thing to be decided is the URL structure/depth and keyword orderin url.

    Is there any advantage using same level urls or deeper ones? (Let me explain what I mean). Does keyword order in url have effect on rank?

    Example:

    Targeting: dog, dog treats, huge dog treats, smelly dog treats
    animalyummy.tld/dog/
    animalyummy.tld/dog/treats/
    animalyummy.tld/dog/treats/huge/
    animalyummy.tld/dog/treats/smelly/

    VS

    animalyummy.tld/dog/
    animalyummy.tld/dog-treats/
    animalyummy.tld/dog-treats-huge/
    animalyummy.tld/dog-treats-smelly/

    VS (order changed)

    animalyummy.tld/dog/
    animalyummy.tld/dog-treats/
    animalyummy.tld/huge-dog-treats/
    animalyummy.tld/smelly-dog-treats/
