Keywords in the URL, is it still ok?

    I read in a old book that if you introduce keywords in the URL you may get better results. Is this theory still viable or was it ruled out by Google's spiders?

    Yes, it's fine to use keywords in your URL and title and integrated naturally into your text.  While they don't seem to have as much ranking influence as years ago, search engines still need to figure out what a page is about in order to index pages properly.  Keywords and relevant words/phrases should naturally co-occur in your text. There is a lot written about this topic on top SEO sites.  Also the HP Learning Center is a helpful place.
