    Ok.. so you guys cleared up my question about putting keywords in a domain name... but how about as a page name?

    For example... what will rank better for the keyword "the rich jerk review"...

    mydomain.com/therichjerk.php
    mydomain.com/therichjerkreview.php
    mydomain.com/the-rich-jerk.php
    mydomain.com/the-rich-jerk-review.php

    Thanks.

    That's a good question. Honestly my thoughts would be that it really won't make much difference. You would want to have all of the keywords in the name "the rich jerk review" but as for as the hyphens, I don't think it matters much. I had heard once that "-" was better then "_" and structure my pages like this "the-rich-jerk-review" only because i think it is easier for people to read.

    Extremely disallow use the "_", your Big G didn't like it!

    ukescuba, take your time search in this forum deeply and you will find some great SEO stuffs here. I recommend the se0mindset from Br@d.

    The last is the best. Google can't differentiate words put together like therichjerk, like it can the-rich-jerk

    I wouldn't say G doesn't like a "_", I have plenty of URL's with them, but I do try to use "-"

    I prefer using '-' for long urls in my sites.

    Use keywords in ALT tags for images, anchor text, page names, both metas, a single H1 tag, 3 or 4 H2, put them randomly in bold tags, italics, and use them as links within one of the first paragraphs. Also check your keyword density. Get it up around 3%. Some say 6% is best, but i find that leaves pages unreadable and seems too high to be natural to me.

    Also, hyphens used to be needed for G to recognise where one word ended and another beagn, but now i believe it recognises hyphenated or not.

    SEO for keyword spacing in urls:
    no spaces > hyphens > underscores

    You can omit operators like "and" "the" "a" etc...
