    I have a exact match domain and I'm wondering which way to go about making the URL. If my URL is example.com & I'm trying to target example tv review...


    Should my URL be example.com/example-tv-review OR example.com/tv-review


    Thanks! Sorry I'm a noob.

    Well it has to be like this be example.com/example-tv-review but example.com/tv-review could also work as well.

    What do you mean? I don't understand which one I should use? I don't want to get in trouble with Google. I have an exact match domain.

    If you target keyword is example tv review, use a file name like 'example-tv-review.html' Or set up WP's permalinks to to follow that format (without the .html). Never use underscores like example_tv_review. Google will read that like exampletvreview. No good.

    Both are good enough, but example-tv-review would be better.
