Hi friends ,

A small doubt of me . While I m going through SEO related studies I saw so much URLs in various sites . My doubt is which of these following URLs are really helps in SEO process

1. [url]www.mysitename.com/movie/moviename.html[/url]
2. [url]www.mysitename.com/movie/moviename[/url]

I just rewrite the following dynamic URL www.mysitename.com/movie.php?movie=moviename Thanks in advance

the first url is the more correct form
the second traditionally represents a foldername, which may confuse the spider and lessen page counts
both would function properly as the rewrite is only specific to your site

mod_rewrite is fun

I don't understand your question. please specify it. And the 2 URL you have posted are from the same site...

He's asking if it's betetr to inclide a .html to the url, the urls he's posted aren't the same at all.

I would use the second one. The directory structure seems to be how most modern dynamic sites are doing it nowadays.

i think first one is more appropriate but i dont think that if you use second one then it will have some bad effect.

I think 1st one is ideal.

What do you want to say I don't understand so please tell clearly your point. you have posted two URL of same sites.

the first url is the more correct form
the second traditionally represents a foldername, which may confuse the spider and lessen page counts

if possible do not add the .html on your URL

You don't need to write url, it would automatically we generated if you are using wordpress.
