Dear Frnds...

Can any one please guide me for the following question.
If i want to create a link for my domain name.
for example: .../web-designing-florida/ecommerce-design-florida.html

so is it correct or should i direct go for: .../ecommerce-design-florida.html?

I m very confused, so i hope some one will help me out.

Thank you in advance.

It sounds like you might want to read up on the differences between absolute and relative links [google.com]? There are different schools of thought as to where and when certain link formats should be used.

Agreed with Bill -

how you link it virtually, etc. and how it would "look" in your code will also depend on how many "folders" deep it is as well.

I'm afraid that no one understands your question! Could you try to be a little clearer about what you are trying to do? Are you writing an HTML page for example? Or designing a site? Or what, exactly?

This will work fine, and is easiest way to go unless you have a large number of pages, for example if you have multiple services that you offer in multiple states.

Why so..this link navigation...

suppose i m having some 35 links in my site and use the other option, then does that harm? in terms of serps and seo?

Search engines are likely to devalue urls with excessive keywords, so which form is best for SEO is debatable, and likely be differ between search engines and over time. Check out threads below.
