We are developing a WinForms grid control, and selling it thru our website worldwide. At the current stage of SEO works, we found that there are many popular search phrases with the "c#" word we can use ("c# grid control", etc).
But the sharp char (#) can't be encoded in URLs "as is" to have the maximal SEO effect for Google search. Here are possible choices to encode "c#":
- "c sharp".
- "c%23" (using hexadecimal codes).
- No use of "#", so "c# grid" will look like "c-grid" in URL.
So the question is: what is the best way to reflect "c#" in URLs from SEO perspective? Are there more alternatives?
