URLs are really the building blocks of your website and can make or break your traffic.

1.You should remove words that don't add significance to the URL.

2.Keywords are one of the ways that a search engine and humans gather knowledge about a web page and its content, so it is important that you are including one or two relevant keywords in the URL.

3.Your URL should be able to tell the reader what they will find if they choose to click on it.

4.The options when separating words in a URL are to use hyphens, use underscores, or use nothing. It is highly suggested to go with the hyphens. This will help with the overall readability of the URL, making it easier for humans and search engines to comprehend it.

Although my fellow Quorans have already tried to answer your question. There is no definite answer to your question, as in our experience, we have used all three suggested formats to gain rankings and maintain them as well.

The factors you might need to consider

1. Length of url should not exceed 100 characters and preferably remain within 50–60 characters.
2. Match url with title of the page.
3. Try to include keywords in url whether as category or subcategory or page or post. Less number of folders is best but try to use folders to your advantage.
4. Exclude dynamic characters from url.
5. Avoid keyword repetition within URL.
6. If you have similar looking URLs canonicalise them to most useful one.
7. Make sure that you don’t use title or upper case within URL, try using all lower case characters.
8. Avoid using stop words like “and , or , but etc.” in the URL itself.
9. Use hyphen character as keyword separator.
