I've been hunting through the archives for over 2 hours now and not finding my answer... so, I'm hoping someone can either answer my question or direct me to the right archive.
I'm trying to figure out what is the optimal character to use in my site URL besides "-", "/" and "_". I'm trying to find something like a "+", ":", ".", "~" or "!"... but, "+" and ":" are reserved according to section 2.2 here: [faqs.org...]
and I've rarely seen successful SEO sites with a tilda or exclamation point in their URL. And, I've heard that periods can cause trouble...
Here's the type of URL I'm going for:
The only spot I need help with is the "+" spot above. It needs to be common enough that it won't cause Google or any of our customer/browsers to break, yet distinct enough that my system can find it uniquely.
Any ideas? We're going live with our major SEO upgrade tonight, but just discovered this potential problem... Help!
