Leaving out keyword in filename? Helpful or not for rankings? Not using kw in file name to avoid spam. frenzy77 msg:252773 10:56 am on Sep 3, 2005 (gmt 0) Hey guys:)
I was thinking about leaveing *out* the keyword in the filename of some of my pages to avoid penalties.(spam) Do you think this will hurt or help rankings?
What do you guys think?
Thanks fellas. I appreciate your help:)

I would think that changing your file structure may hurt your ranking. I could be wrong but from what I have been reading in here it may hurt more than help if you don't do it right.
Warning before you make the changes read this thread frenzy: [

Thanks for your info Stuart_S :)
But i am developing the site right now. It has not gone live before. So when i said "hurt rankings" i meant if it would be *better* or worse for a site to include or not include the keywords in the file name for a websites files?
>This is speaking of better pr and better "seo" of pages.
Would it be better for the site to *not* use any kw in the file name or *use* a kw in the file name?
>as far as better pr and seo of pages?
