    Best type of permalinks?


    So, there are three types of URLS :
    1. http://site.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=10
    2. http://site.com/forum-10
    3. http://site.com/forum-linux


    Out of the three, I'm sure the last one i.e. http://site.com/forum-linux would be the best for SEO.

    My question is, for ease of development, if I add the forum id along with the URL like this : http://site.com/forum-linux-10 , will it have any adverse effect on the SEO??

    Ease of development means, for example, if I have a topic URL like this : http://site.com/topic-hello
    Since it is a common topic title, we'll be needing to use http://site.com/topic-hello-1 in the next so, why not use the topic id itself??

    Any adverse effect?

    No, not really. The ID may become a potential keyword but that wouldn't make much of a difference.

    I'd probably put the ID first in the URL, but that probably wouldn't make a difference either. I just think it looks/functions better that way.

    Domain name and permalink is the part of URL. Keywords in domain name doesn't matter much (nice if included but you will loose your brand recognition) but its always beneficial to include keyword in file names (permalinks). How you say? Because, search engines assume that your pages is more relevant if keywords are included in file name.

    The last one is good which is yoursite.com/your-page/ or yoursite.com/your-page.html

    But if it is too long then you can minimize it using no.

    Yes you are right, you should go for last one which is http://site.com/forum-linux this one is best for SEO point of view. I also have a wordpress blog and im using the same permalink.

    I prefer static Name with keyword contain url, since, Dynamic urls are not Search Engine Friendly.

    Well, the answer is NO. Google knows what keyword you are trying to rank so adding a number wouldn't make a difference.
