    Keywords in URL. Why it can get a better position?


    I just wonder the reason why the URLs contain keywords will get higher positions than those without keywords, when searching these keywords in Google.

    I only figure out one reason, that is, for most cases, the backlinks will only use the URL itself as the anchor text by default, with keywords in the URL, the anchor text will contain keywords, which contribute its position for these keywords.

    Am I correct? Are there any other reasons that make the keyword-in-URL get a good position?

    Is there a difference...


    Is there a difference between the folllowing url's?

    url/concert/1/acdc/concert%20thunderstruck%20april%202009

    url/concert/1/acdc/concert_thunderstruck_april_2009

    url/concert/1/acdc/concert+thunderstruck+april+2009

    url/concert/1/acdc/ConcertThunderstruckApril2009

    Will Google treat all the versions the same?
