Matt Cutt posted at his blog- "Most bloggy sites tend to have words from the title of a post in the url; having keywords from the post title in the url also can help search engines judge the quality of a page." This has raised questions yet again on the long debated SEO topic that whether having keywords in the file names help the rankings. Matt was later questioned if having words in the URL increases or decreases
the "quality" of page. Matt clarified in the comments column that, "including the keyword in the url just gives another chance for that keyword to match the user’s query in some way."
