    Hi,

    I'm starting a business directory and I'm trying to figure out how to structure the categories and what's best from the SEO perspective.
    It's gonna be a national directory (small country).

    So you got the domain:
    domain.com

    I wanted to structure it like this:
    domain.com/profession/city

    but I was wondering if the 2 folders at the end will pass as one keyword
    /profession/city or are they just treated as folders and don't form a keyword together?

    Otherwise I'd have to do something like this:
    professioncity.domain.com
    or
    domain.com/professioncity
    or
    city.domain.com/profession

    But I want to have the local keyword in there somehow (profession+city) so I can appear on the first page of Google for it.

    Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd suggest this
    city.domain.com/profession
