do these numbers damage my seo

Post by seaside man » Thu Sep 05, 2013 9:24 am

Hi, i am trying to get into google news and it says that you need unique numbers, so i have used sh404sef and the numbers it is giving me is at the beginning of the url's instead of at the end and i am worried that it is damaging my seo

can you tell me if the following is bad

i am worried that it will not get picked up or rank well with the numbers at the beginning, another example is the below which i am worried that anyone looking for info on the caravan park will not find our story because of the numbers

I'm not a seo master, but I don't think those numbers in the url would affect your website. Look at Joomla forum, it doesn't use sef url's and still are ranking very good in searches.

Words/Numbers in the URL neither help or dis-help, they do however indicate what the content is about, but as Ionut pointed out Joomla forums uses numbers, but to add on that Joomla.org also has authority that a website such as myself and you won't have, they rank much easier without any effort at all due to the sheer number of websites linking to it, talking about it and so on. The authority that only we can dream off ;)
