    If I have the URL:

    /ice-cream/strawberry.html

    Does strawberry draw more weight because it's the last word of the URL?

    if the letters were made of lead probably yes, because strawberry contains the most letters and would need more material to manufacture.

    but since we're on the internet, word frequency is what carries weight. regardless, Google only uses this info to understand what your website is all about.

    so please check with your local Google Webmaster Tools.

    No, the keyword and how many times it is used and in what places it is found is all that matters. This is the first I have heard of a word that is the last in the URL has more weight. I don't think so and I am sure that others will agree.
