The ranking effect of keywords in the file path name is miniscule.
retaking the thread,
I moved the files to a folder called widgets some weeks ago,
just searched for widgets mycompanyname, and on top there were 4 sites optimized for widgets and part of my companyname,
and below instead of my index page wich is the most important page the pages in that folder wich is named widgets comes up, these pages doesn´t even have backlinks I think.
The word widgets is nowhere to be found on any of the pages.
In this search, those pages were more relevant to google than the homepage as the word widgets is in the url.
I wonder if the importance is not that miniscule.
I dont remember but I think before searching for widgets mycompanyname my homepage came first then the optimized site for widgets.
