I am creating a friendly url interpreter for my website. I have read dozens of similar topics on this site, but none that seem to address my particular situation. What I want to know is if it's better to have:
A well broken down URL where each category is represented by a folder
A URL which groups all of the categories and terms together
I am asking only in terms of what is best for SEO, not necessarily human readability. My thinking is that it may be better to group them all together like they are in the second example. My reasoning being that all of those terms represent the page and are more likely to draw a result.
I am a complete SEO nub though, and I crave some expert guidance. Thank you in advance for any help given.
