    According to google it doesn't makes any difference, but IMO it's better if you use dashes between each word, it makes it easy to read and remember.

    It depends on your circumstances. But for the large part it matters not. If you are sharing your site on facebook all you need to worry about is having your open graph metadata.

    Lots of people started using mod_rewrite with seo friendly urls, but these days all urls are just as friendly as the next.

    If you want to go with something that users can sum up in a glance then go with putting-hyphens-between-your-words.

    Good luck

    Other than the negligible benefit that 'pretty urls' might have for SEO, I create my blog post and page urls for my reader's benefit. The second version is easier to read when it pops up in search engines so it's the one I would go with. Ultimately, usability of a site is the most important factor of SEO anyway. If Google doesn't see it now they will.

    I have checked your links
    I think the 2nd one is ok
    Even it is better to add few more words by which people can search

      2nd choice is the best among these 2.
      this is good for Search engine .because it is easy for SE to understand.
