I am considering PFI for about 6 page in Inktomi:
I have read here:
that Inktomi has a problem with domains with 4 hyphens in.
My domain has 1 hyphen in www.word-anotherword.co.uk
Some of my filenames have 3 underscores in:
The whole thing being
Does inktomi have a problem with this amount of _ or -?

I had someone take a look at the page name and we don't allow keyword
stuffing in the URL and you should reduce the keywords in the filename to
what's absolutely necessary. You should reconstruct it before submission.
On a new site, if for example I've got winter widgets and summer widgets, instead of using directories and filenames with full hyphenated phrases, I'm doing instead
Even where it could have been /winter-widgets/mens-wool-winter-widgets.html, etc.
I have to repeat and stress that I've got nothing whatsoever substantial to base this on. I figure I can always change pages around some and change a site structure and page naming later on if I decide to, and I've just gotten a little squeamish about this.
A load of hyphens have just begun to make me a bit uncomfortable, so I'm going by my feelings and doing what I'm more comfortable with for now. I started out doing all this by "instinct" at the beginning, and I've grown to trust it more over time. Things that have started to look overly seo'd and a bit spammy to me, even when I do them myself, might also look that way to others if there's ever a hand check. And I've not done badly at all with what's been kept fairly understated.
I wouldn't tell someone else not to, it's just my personal feeling and choice right now.
I have to add that I do have pages doing just fine with Ink that do have hyphens in the directory and filenames - but the sites don't have hyphens in the domain name also.
