Your advice on naming the url's of my subpages

Hello,

I have a website with 20 chatrooms.

If I set the url of each chatroom like this:

http://www.mysite.com/chatroom1
http://www.mysite.com/chatroom2
....
http://www.mysite.com/chatroom20

Will google penalize me for using the word chatroom in every url?

I am not trying to rank for the key-phrase "chatroom" btw. I am thinking of doing it like this just because it looks good and it's self explanatory.

    Go for it, are you trying to optimize and rank those subpages though? If you are, then the answer might be replacing the word "Chatroom" with a category name, or relevant keyword.

    For example, www.yoursite.com/teen-chatroom-2.html

    Would be better than:

    www.yoursite.com/chatroom2.html

    Does each chat room have a different focus? If so, then I would rename each room with a distinct name. To answer your question though, will G penalize you for the way you have it now? IMO no, because they are actually unique given that each has a different number at the end. However, I would always recommend variety if you can find a way to differentiate each room that would be best.
