Does it matter how many levels your blog goes?
I see www.site.com/blog/month/day/post
or www.site.com/blog/month/day/year/post
Does it matter? Is there a best way?
On my one blog I did www.site.com/blog/month-day-year/post in order to minimize the levels.
Is that the best way or does it not really matter?

Newp, the number of subdirectory levels doesn't matter to the search engines. What matters is how everything linked together.

For instance, if you were to link to a page at www.yoursite.com/page.html from your home page and also link to a page at www.yoursite.com/sub1/sub2/sub3/may-16-2009/page.html from your home page, both would be seen as being of equal importance in the search engines eyes.

Actually, our senior web guy just pointed out to me last week that as Google awards sitelinks to more blogs the blogs' basic URL structures make the sitelinks look ugly.

That is, the date-oriented URLs seem to produce sitelinks by year rather than category or tag.

It's just something to consider if you think you have a chance to earn sitelinks from Google (or other search engines -- Google is no longer the only search engine that includes them).
