I am working on a project where my landing page URL will look like as shown below:
Shakuntla devi: Author name
Aptitude Questions: Book name
2014: Publication Year
This landing page will be generated dynamically based upon URL, for which I need to fetch all 3 fields first. Now, to differentiate all 3 fields I am planning to use double hyphen (--).
I can use single hyphen too as shown below, but that will reduce the performance because some extra queries will be needed to identify them.
My question is:
Shall I continue with double hyphen URL? But if it is not recommended from SEO perspective, I will be happy with a little bit slow system because SEO is far important than performance for this project.
PS: I understand that I have to use ! after # for SEO (am also going to include all such URLs in the sitemap) but regarding use of double hyphen am not able to find any satisfactory answer or advice. I noticed that Jabong is also using double hyphen in their filter logic. Other than Jabong I don't see any other website with double hyphen that's why I am little bit afraid to use it.
I would really appreciate if someone can help me with this.
