    Does the keyword order in the URL matter for ranking? ex: I have "domain.c0m/lovelyboys" or "domain.c0m/boys-cool-lovely".
    Also, can I get a penalty if I have the keyword twice in the URL like "lovelyboys.c0m/lovelyboys" or"lovelyboys.c0m/cool-lovely-boy"

    Thank you, I would like to get answers to BOTH of the questions.

    For Penguin and Panda Google has been targeting overly optimized sites. So, if you keyword stuff the chance of you being penalized is fairly good.

    Yeah, I would be a little bit concerned about that - it's just not really natural. I mean, it's ONE factor that could count against you, though I am sure someone will point out a site that has the keywords in every single page title, but you have to have a lot of authority to get away with stunts like that!

    I think you should try to make your title and url as descriptive and natural while keeping your main keywords there at the same time :) It's more attractive to users as well. Just don't stuffing the keywords in like "lovelyboys is a lovely boy and he loves boys" (lol, this is sick bro)

    I don't think it would have been possible to get penalized for overoptimizing a title a year ago. But today, with the new "over-optimization" paradigm that Google is upholding, it's definitely possible. Google knows SEOs are overoptimizing and theyre dropping the hammer on all of us.

    Use your keyword once. No need for more.
