I've put together a music based website that features discussion boards for every artist and album. I'm a little conflicted between two approaches I had in mind. The first option would involve creating a url with the name of the artist in the url with
/boards name spaced:
# Artist Board /boards/michael-jackson # Album Board /boards/michael-jackson-thriller
The other idea I had would to have the artist name serve as the base followed by /board since every artist/album only has one board.
# Artist Board /michael-jackson/board # Album Board /michael-jackson-thriller/board
The second option would definitely open up the opportunity to prepend any section pertaining to the artist or album like:
# Artist /michael-jackson/albums # Album /michael-jackson-thriller/tracklist
But the first option you could say makes it explicit in the sense that these all derive from boards. Which of the two would benefit me, SEO-wise?
