Hi All, If you have an URL such as fxtradingusa.com and you want to target keyword "Forex Trading New York", would you name the sub-page fxtradingusa.com/new-york or fxtradingusa.com/forex-trading-new-york? Which one is best for SEO? Thanks in advance for your views.

    you are assuming that searchers are going to use one or the other, this is where testing is invaluable and will give you more informed information

    Of course, if you do
    forex-trading/new-york

    you can do
    forex-trading/chicago
    forex-trading/san-francisco
    etc.

    And silo them.

    But how is forex trading specific to New York?

    Main keyword targeting for homepage is good option to rank it higher in Google search.

    So most agree that if one targets keyword "forex trading new york", best for SEO would be to name the inner page fxtradingusa.com/forex-trading-new-york (rather than fxtradingusa.com/new-york)

    Your domain is not a url.

    So, your first thing should be actually learning something.

    The actual url you mention should be created so the user knows what it's about.

    If you are at a site for..ahem...forex trading....the user would know that a url with new york, would be about forex trading new york.

    I agree with DABK, you don't want your keywords to be redundant.

    In my suggestion your second option of URL fxtradingusa.com/forex-trading-new-york is better than first one, this URL has much explanation about the page, anyone can understand easily about the page.

    I think this URL fxtradingusa.com/forex-trading-new-york will be best for SEO perspective also.

    fxtradingusa.com already includes the words "forex trading" (synonym). By using fxtradingusa.com/forex-trading-new-york "forex trading" will be used twice which may not look natural to Google. Anyway, the difference is minimal but can still move you few spots up or down.

    I prefer fxtradingusa.com/forex-trading-new-york, because the first one is like you want to target keyword NY city.

    A URL (Uniform Resource Locator), more commonly known as a "web address", specifies the location of a resource (such as a web page) on the internet. The URL also specifies how to retrieve that resource, also known as the "protocol", such as HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, etc.

    Code Sample

    http://www.exampledomain.com

    when it comes to selecting one from Forex Trading and Forex Trading in New York, the later will serve you better because in that case, the search engine will display results for both the keywords.
