Yes, www.wirelessphonereviews.com (http://www.wirelessphonereviews.com) again.

Completely new design. Smaller pages, search engines can find content faster and with more ease. Content isn't there yet, but there will be alot more (check the articles out). The concept is to optimize as much keywords as possible, but I'm primarily focusing on about 15.

The site flow and navigation what I'm not sure about. In the past, Chris has used folders to put content in (wirelessphonereviews.com/wireless_articles/). This makes sense, since it adds more text to be found by search engines. Is it best to do it like this? Also, I link to my homepage EVERYWHERE by calling for "http://www.wirelessphonereviews.com" - is this better than calling for index.php or what?

Er, any other advice?

I would use "http://www.wirelessphonereviews.com/" But as long as you're consistent it doesn't really matter.

Quite often where you see "http://ww.domain.com/articles/12" etc it is likely that "articles" is not a folder at all, but rather a scripting file (such as articles.php) and "12" would be a variable to indicate the required article. They're just search engine friendly URL's and may not be sub-dir's at all. But if you get your keywords in, it doesn't really matter if you use directories or not (beyond an organizational stand point).

If you're using SE friendly URLs a search engine doesn't even know its not a directory -- nor does anyone else (unless you tell them).

or unless you do something like


and it doesn't throw a 404. But that's not really the point :)
