Duplicate keyword in URL

by @edneff (162), 6 years ago

Can duplicate keywords in URLs boost page importance on that keyword? Or is it potentially subject to penalisation?

Think of some-product.com/some-product/some-product-{specific} where product specific would be either color, size, model, version or so.

To me, it looks quiet spammy, but saw that on a site. They do well in G's SERP. I would rather not post their actual website for now, but you know get what i mean.

There is no point to implement such a redundant URL structure. It's over-optimization, and it could be bad for your site, even though this isn't ordinary keyword stuffing.

I'd suggest using simple URLs. Make em easy to read, short and descriptive. Do not overuse keywords just for sake of optimization. Think visitors-first, just like Google does, and you'll be good.

It's honestly bad looking URL structure, and I'd avoid it if possible.

That will surely get penalized as it is nothing but keyword stuffing

one time in the url is enough and using it more than once doesnt have any extra effect

It's keyword stuffing - make sure to get rid of that shit.

@Sophia - nice forums ;)

Over optimization should always be avoided. One time is sufficient...
