Hi all,

I'd be fairly certain it isn't the URL format that's your problem.

personally i don't think that would make any difference.

why are 'most people' saying that it would?

I completely agree - the URL structure itself is not the ranking problem.

There is very little ranking impact from the URL characters anyway - a rewritten URL on its own is not a good reason for Google to rank that page more prominently.
