I give folders with names like php, mysql to help me with search engines including sphider which I use for my own site.
Can I give folders names like web developers there is a space between the words. Can you do that nowadays..Or perhaps some systems might not read it
Some browsers replace spaces with %20. (web%20developers/). Firefox made this in earlier versions. Why not use - or _ instead?
Ive though that search engines may not see Web_Developer but may see Web Developer
it's not totaly true. Biggest different is web_developer because it's handled as a whole word. Make a search in google and see.
I agree with you. Web_developer is more SEO friendly.
Well I use both one-two and one_two. I haven't seen any difference when it comes to search engine rankings.
the problem with the "-" is that google might think that you are looking for the 1st term and NOT the second...
WEB-DEVELOPER -> google might give you results for WEB on page that the term DEVELOPER are not listed...
But wouldn't "Webdeveloper" be better in this case?
It isn't meant to be used as one word, however its not meant to be used as "Web_Developer" either. Nor any other form to spell it.
If I were to buy the domain, I would personally try to eliminate any type of "-,_, etc." as I think without those it is much easier to remember.
"Webdeveloper" is easier remembered rather than "Web_developer".
I guess there is multiple ways to look at it.
From my understanding of domains and should be the same for files and other names Google prefers dashes "-" for spaces. So this-is-my-address.com is better than thisismyaddress.com.
I would never use spaces because it creates lots of confusion with the %20 and so on. Also keep all file names lower case.
