    Some interesting reading, a good refresher. Example:

    Google Guy says that Google doesn't treat _ as word separators, use - instead.

    My readings of what GG said concerning word separation indicate that Goolgle does not like the underbar, dash or %20. I could not find any indication of what would be preferred. Perhaps, as far as Google goes no word separation in URLs is preferred. ?????????

    Thinking about going back to one word file names for URLs like XXXXX.com/underwear.html

    GoogleGuy "I would go with hyphens, personally."

    He says it doesn't matter much, but he would go with hyphens personally. I think if you have a choice, go with the dash.
