    Optimizing Keywords in a URL


    I am trying to decide how many keywords to implement in my domain. If it is a shopping list that also has coupons and recipes, would it be smart to include "shopping-list.grocery-list.coupons.recipes" (4 keyword phrases) if I don't have to worry about anyone remembering the name of the website? Shopping List and Grocery List are more important search terms, but if including coupons and recipes won't penalize me, then I want to put them in as well.

    Thanks in advanced for any insights!

    you're headed down the wrong road imo friend. Find a simple domain and create a brand around it. You'll be much better off.

    This isn't what I'm getting at. It's for a Google Play Store Link. Is it better to have 4 keywords in my url?, or does it penalize me opposed to having only 2 keywords in my url?

    Think about it, nobody searches Google for "Shopping list" or "Grocery list", since we've all got unique tastes and needs. You need to be clever with your keywords, always think about what YOU would search for
