Let's imagine a website with items organized by sections and categories, with those examples values:
Sections (articles, threads, events, directory)
Display all items (title, date, description, author, main pic) of this section and all categories.
Categories (animals, arts, movies, sciences...)
Display all items (title, date, description, author, main pic) of this section and this category.
Display an item data: title, date, description, content, pictures, author.
What is the better link to those pages for users and SEO?
1 - http://www.domain.com/section-name/category-name/item-title_id.html or 2 - http://www.domain.com/item-title_id.html
The first solution seems logical for users and crawlers bot. But is there a maximum length of url for a good SEO?
The second solution is lighter for SEO and users, but doesn't explain what is this page.
