One of my website i am using links like this:

  • http://example.com/web-development/
  • http://example.com/web-designing/
  • http://example.com/web-promotion/

Not like this:

  • http://example.com/services/web-development/
  • http://example.com/services/web-designing/
  • http://example.com/services/web-promotion/

can anyone tell me, is there any SEO point that i missed?? I means should i have to use the links like second example??

I think according to breadcrumbs view second example is good, but it would be great if i get some suggestion by SEO experts..

Have a look at this question, which I answered if Slash or Hyphens are better for SEO:
Is it better to use slash or hyphens for SEO?

Basically, Matt Cutts (from Google) stated (and recommends as a best practice) that Google treats hyphens in URLs as word separators, which would (in theory) weight subfolders differently than hyphens between words.
