Does url length still affect rankings?
I've got some pages with very long URLs and they rank in the top 10.
It all depends on what you mean 'affect rankings'. Like freelistfool said, long URL rank fine in top 10; however, how easy it is to get them ranked is where I would raise a question. My experience has been that though long URLs can and indeed and do rank, it is more difficult to get them to rank. It takes the engines longer to 'trust' longer URLs.
