Well I have inherited a large info site run with a pretty slick CMS backend - the only problem is all the urls look something like this:

www.widgetinfo.com/cms/item/keywordA%20keywordB

Soo all pages have keywords in the url - but its done kind of sloppy. Will this cause problems or just look sloppy?

I also had it like that. I ranked veru good for some time, until some one used the hyphen for separation. Now i lost some traffic. I am trying to get the hyphen in it also using 301 redirects and so on, i hope i will succeed!

you could always try a mod re-write to change the url?

well I've been able to get in the code and write a string replace function to add the hyphen in place of the spaces. Pretty young site, so I'd rather have things setup ideally now then try and deal with them a year from now.

Thanks
