Google loves keyword rich URLs more than ever

Msg#: 3724383 posted 11:40 am on Aug 16, 2008 (gmt 0)

Again a confusion if google has started giving better rankings to URLs with keywords embedded. We have few blogs on wordpress with following setup

1. Webmasterworld forum type urls, keywords only in categories and article number for blog articles.

2. Keyword rich category and url

3. Only IDs

Webmasterworld type format was best one till day getting majority of traffic but suddenly since last 2 weeks of time google has started giving more importace to No. 2 type URLs above.

Number 3 type urls above are getting deteriorated everyday, we post same number of articles on all the above blogs (8 - 10)

Thanks - that's a helpful observation, especially since the variety of blogs you work with puts you in a position to notice details that many of us might not.

It seems that the "keyword in filepath" dial keeps getting turned back and forth. I can see how it would be a high-trust signal for Google, but something about the other styles of urls actually losing ground for you bothers me.

Could there be some common factor in the way those other blogs are structured, something in addition to the non-keyword style of the url?
