Using Keywords In URL

URL and page titles when used properly can bring good results when combined to bring the best out of both. URL usually does not perform best when left to be decided by the software, because your software basically is not much bothered about the SEO or the traffic part of your site. It will blindly create any URL without using the proper keywords in it which if done can definitely bring very good traffic to your site.

Using keywords in the URL is a very good way of telling the search engine what your present article is about and how is it related to the main content of your site. Generally URL should have two parts, one having the primary keyword and the other having the secondary URL which you are targeting for in the present article which you are about to write.

It is very good if the primary keyword gets repeated twice in the URL of the post. A well matching URL and title can bring good amount of traffic to your site in a very short time. If you are unaware, let me tell you that your URL is a very important part of your on-page optimization as well as off-page optimization. SEO experts are very eager on making sure that they target the URL properly so that Google gives them the top position very easily.

One more very important point is that your URL as far as possible should never have a date sticking between the post title and the main URL of the site which is targeted at the main primary keyword of your site. With the keywords used well in the post title the SEO percentage of the created page will be sufficiently high to attract the search engine and to get some real time high traffic running to your site because of a strong URL with targeted keywords placed at regular intervals in it.
