    Need advice on URL structure


    I have a client that sells brake parts. We are redesigning t he site tto be better optimized. Parrt of that includes allowing users to search by vehicle, model and year. After they do a search, and pick the brake kit they want I'm thinking it should look like website.com/vehicle-model-year/brake-conversion-kit/legend-series/.

    What do you think?

    I Thought Your Idea is Good, but that URL is Bit Long. Try Once Like this "www.website.com/vehicle-model-year/legend-series/"

    If they can find it by a search, your set up doesn't really matter, or if you want look at how the big boys do it and follow suite.

    I agree with this but I could be biased because I use long URLs all the time

    If the site is well optimized (on-page SEO, great relevant content, fast pages, and so on) then customers will find you the SERPs, and not by entering the full URL of the product. I am a firm believer of short URL but that will depend on the type of website (blog, business presence, eCommerce). As long as you site structure is well laid out, then I would not worry about that. But it doesn't mean you can/should make a URL 1 mile long. LOL

    I agree I am trying to think of a way to have it structured just to the brake parts and then car model.

    I personally think you could have

    sitename.com/product/partserialnumber as a canonical url (main url) it would be close to nearly the same and breadcrumbs are here for navigation both on page and in SERPs, but that is just a personal preference, the advantage being that if you change the way you sort products you have no product page indexing issues.
