    Optimal SEF Url structure - which way provides best SEF / SEO ?

    What do you think is the ideal SEF Url structure for a shopping cart product ?

    Assume there are tons of products, some of which have similar/same titles, thus there is also a need to prevent URL conflicts

    Example:
    Category: Books (category 1)
    Title: Real Estate Basics
    Item Number: 3264

    1. http://www.yourstore.com/books/real-estate-basics-3264/

    2. http://www.yourstore.com/books-1/rea...e-basics-3264/

    3. http://www.yourstore.com/books/real-estate-basics/3264/

    4. http://www.yourstore.com/books/real-...sics/3264.html

    5. http://www.yourstore.com/books/real-...sics-3264.html

    6. http://www.yourstore.com/books/3264/...te-basics.html

    Any others?

    And.....does it even matter ?

    Thanks

    Nope. You are thinking to hard about it. Think KISS.
    Me personally....would just use the ID/ISBN number everything else is clutter.
    blahblah.tld/books/978-0-7356-2530-3 <--- ISBN

    in my opinion the perfect link structure is link/date/category/file-name.html
