I am wondering if numbers in URLs negatively affect SEO. For example, a URL like this:
We still have the keywords in the URL, but also a number coming before the keywords. Does the string of numbers detract in any way from the overall clean URL with keywords?
Thank you so much, love your newsletter!
Numbers in URLs in no way detract from the overall optimization of any given page. In fact, in order to be included in Google News, your URLs must contain numbers.
Therefore, you have absolutely nothing to worry about!
