SEF urls please help me
« on: 10-31-2012, 14:10:36 »
Hi to all the forum!

I would like some advice from the experts here please.

I am creating my own local travel website which you may check on the domain  www.aegeanvacation.com
username: demo11
pass: demo11

and I am trying to fix properly the urls in order to be SEF.

My main question is:
I have this url http://www.aegeanvacation.com/aegean-islands/lesvos-lesbos/beaches/southern-lesvos-beaches/tarti.html

The url is appearing the path that the user need to arrive and see the beach "Tarti" . Maybe I should make the url shorther and if yes, how you suggest to make it? 
I have some ideas but I dont know what is correct for search engines. for example:
1- www.aegeanvacation.com/tarti-beach
2-aegeanvacation.com/lesvos/tarti-beach
3- aegeanvacation.com/aegean-islands/lesvos/tarti-beach
4- aegeanvacation.com/tarti

I am using K2 and Joomla 2,5 so the main url is being created automatically. If we leave the original url as it is, then maybe I will have problem with dublicate keywords such as "beaches", "lesvos/lesbos", and isnt it too much long url?


Second question for the url of the companies that I include in my portal, now I have for example for the hotels:

http://www.aegeanvacation.com/CHIOS/argentikon-luxury-suites-in-chios.html

Do you suggest any better url please?

Maybe it should be:
1-www.aegeanvacation.com/argentikon-luxury-suites
2-aegeanvacation.com/chios-hotels/argentikon-luxury-suites
Thank you in advance all of you for your answers! :)

In my opinion, the shorter url you have the better it is recognized by customers and search engines. Answering your first question, i would say that "aegeanvacation.com/tarti" is the best option for promotion. As for the second question, I am not good at inventing new url's, but I repeat: make it shorter and clear.
