That url should be fine, its much better than one of those dynamic .com/?342432424blahblahblah kind of urls! If anything, the url is a little ugly, try adjusting the mod to use only the first 5 words of the title or something similar.

The web page name is way, way too long and contains much too much repetition. Naming techniques like this inevitably prove useless in SEO (non-rewarded) because of the blatant overuse of keyword stuffing.

spama lama ding dong. That is a horribly spammy looking url.

If I saw that in the serps, I'd run the other direction. I'd take a shorter dynamic .com/?342432424blahblahblah over that as long as it didn't have more than a couple of variables an no session ids.

The best solution is to find a shorter version with no variables. I'm not worked with joomla, but I've been on joomla powered sites with much nicer urls.

I've always gone for focus... that is, the shortest combination of identifiers for a URL to the document displayed. But I have to also admit I grew up on 8dot3 and it took another seven years for me to get on board with longer filenames. :)

I remember 8dot3 very very well. In fact I still don't use anyting beside a-z,0-9,-,_, and . in my file names on the web or my pc.

Try to give your articles in Joomla shorter, unique titles and optimize your categories and sections.

For example:

http://www.example.com/example-tours/example-holiday-packages
