Testimonials OSTrainingThanks for the great training! I'm normally more inclined to be a visual than a coder, and these videos have began removing the wall of fear that has kept me from learning coding. Working with WordPress got me interested, and I'm so glad I found you all! "

TOPIC: Path Auto and URL naming convention

Path Auto and URL naming convention 1 year 5 days ago #69658

In the PathAuto tutorials, you guys talk about not using underscores in URL names. Does that really hurt the SEO if I do use them?

Yes, it can. You'll notice we also always uses dashes for our URLs here at OSTraining.

To a large extent, that's based on Google's own direct advice. Here's Matt Cutts on the topic: www.mattcutts.com/blog/dashes-vs-underscores/
Ask. We'll help. It's as simple as that.
