I have a website that sells a product. I know that having keywords in the path/filename is good, but i was wondering what is the best way to go about it.

Currently, my page is set up like...

Would it be better to change it to...

Does it matter?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, jmdb71.

I try to make my path/filenames so that they

1. are short
2. look nice in SERPs.
3. make it easy for me to remember what a file is about.

Generally each of my directories has one relevant keyword as its name. So have the files.

AFAIK keywords in filenames count little or nothing at all in algos. Their most important purpose is to make a file easy to identify for webmaster and visitor.
