SEO File naming
Hey guys I was wondering which format for file naming would be better here is an example for web site hosting plans.
Any difference? any other sudgestions?
I remember reading somewhere Google prefers the hyphens over underscores.
If you try to put keywords in your file names, use "-", not "_". It is widely known that Google can parse keywords separated by "-".
By the way, the keywords in filenames don't carry that much weight when it comes to SEO. So, I wouldn't spend too much time on it.

Use a dash "-"
Google does see individual words separated by an underscore, however it's still best to use a dash.
When you hyperlink using an underscore it can look like a space in the URL, example:
good article if neone is interested.....thanks for the help guys
It looks far better without hyphens
Don't forget your customers when you go on your file- naming-scheme.
Telling that to someone over the phone (file dash naming dash scheme) gets a bit wearysome and some people (like me) hate to type in names with dashes.
This is a very good point. Probably why dashes are prefered.

eureka, i get it now, when you use an underscore it can be confusing in a link and some people might think its a space, where as the dash cant be confused, a dash is a dash, and underscore can be mistaken for a space.
That could be happened but i this dashes is the best to make ur file .hyphens not looking good as a address.and also underscore seems like space so "-" that is good to use for address.
I've always used -, and never underscore ( _ )
Oh wow... that is so ASCII of me ( * \/ * )
Its a face.. perverts! heh
