deciding for a NEW URL
From Pierre-Jean on 23 April '99
I am creating a web site for my brother's Restaurant." Pompelmouse"
(not the real name) I need advice for the URL>
The first letter start with a P so I was concerned about alphabetical order... I have heard that it is no more important since 1997.
Meta tags may help and i will uses them! But from what I heard Keywords and density are, and specialy: KEYWORDS THAT ARE INCLUDED IN THE URL..(for example Pompelmouse French Restaurant ) Unfortunately I am limited in size.(26 letters)....
for the URL :
1)- Should I use abreviations like Pompelmouse-French-Rest ?? ( in that case does the "rest"could be used as keyword for restaurant?? )

2)- Should I use CAPITAL FIRST LETTERS ? (it looks better but I wonder why nobody uses them..or could they be used?)

3)- Is it better to separate words with a dash ?( It looks clearer to me)

4)- Does using "au-Pompelmouse" will really be effective to be on top of a listing? I rather not using it if it is NOT really helping !

Thanks for your HELP !!!!!
