Do you have to use the exact keyword or does it just have to be part of the title? Thanks.
I prefer to use it 'as is' but others insert it to match the title. Were I you, I'd just make it the URL.
Whatever you do, make sure it's in there somewhere

You should have the most important keyword in both the url and the title regardless of which is more important. And if frogdropping were here she might probably say that your keywords should make up about 4-5% of your text.

Search engines regularly crawl and index, and even rank highly, forum threads. Even now most forum software will have the URL as a number, eg: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/37414
But still, have it in the URL for the sake of the humans who might be copying, pasting and sending it to friends via email or spelling it out to them over the phone.

For a long time it has puzzled me how one of my hubs keeps doing great, when it shouldn't. You see, I started a hub on one topic and then changed my mind in the middle of it.Now, back then I had no idea you couldn't change the URL later, so I was horrified when I was stuck with a URL that couldn't...

When I first started writing at HubPages I was under the impression that one should make the url and the first title of their hub the same.So my question now is: When trying to write the url for maximum traffic, how much should you really deviate on the main title? Or does it even matter if the key...
