    How do i best use keywords in my url?

    i have an aboutus.php webpage on my site. I am optimizing that webpage for these keywords "dog picture, dog photo, dog pic"

    i was thinking that i should use a REDIRECT in my .htaccess file to change the aboutus.php page into dog-picture-dog-photo-dog-pic.php

    then i would maximze my keyword usage for SERPs.

    Is this a good idea and will help me in the SERPS? or is it a bad idea to do a REDIRECT cause it wont show up in the SERPS how i want it to??

    anyone have any direct experience with this and can tell me the smartest way to achieve my goal?

    My advice is to skip the over hypenated, keyword spam in the url's and if you have a page that is indexed that serves the purpose (about us; about your company) to leave it. Keys in the url are overated IMO and they really look bad.

    Competitive keywords


    in competitive keyword categories the impact or a URL is minimal.

    Keep it simple. Its really about conversion. About us is good for customer confidence.
