    What URL structure should I opt for?


    I am looking to write a detailed guide on product X. Which URL structure would be more suitable.

    site.com/shopping/guides/mobiles/productX

    or

    site.com/shopping/guides/mobiles/how-to-save-money-buying-productX

    or

    site.com/how-to-save-money-buying-productX

    Are any of these obviously better than the other?
    Are any of them too long?

    I am opting for the first one because it makes most sense to me but you guys may have other thoughts.

    Thanks

    I'd keep the URL as short as possible for your users (you don't need shopping and guide in the URL) so look for a structure like;
    mobile-shopping-site.com/productX
    or
    mobile-review-site.com/productX

    Then I would set up my site to be either a review or shopping site - I've never had any success doing both but the reviews have often done better when I've labelled them as comparison sites. In the niches I'm working in Google gives a strong preference for comparison sites.

    Cheers,
    Paz.

    I think the 3rd one would be catchy. People nowadays prefer to buy something cheaper, as long as the product will satisfy them
