Which URL structure is better, and Why ?

    WHAT IS BETTER (assume primary word is “peanut butter” and category keywords are “crunchy peanut butter” and “smooth peanut butter” respectively)?

    • Peanutbutter.com/crunchy/
    • Peanutbutter.com/smooth/

    OR
    SEMrush
    • Peanutbutter.com/crunchy-peanut-butter/
    • Peanutbutter.com/smooth-peanut-butter/

    for example, how would search engines know the first example, first link is about "crunchy peanut butter" and not just "crunchy" (which has all kinds of meanings and contexts)

    • Peanutbutter.com/crunchy-peanut-butter/
    • Peanutbutter.com/smooth-peanut-butter/

    These are going to e very beneficial as compared to first ones but replace "-" by "_".

    Peanutbutter.com/crunchy-peanut-butter/
    Peanutbutter.com/smooth-peanut-butter/

    I think both are good but according to me. Peanutbutter.com/smooth-peanut-butter/ is better than the other one because it more suitable and definable with the url.

    • Peanutbutter.com/crunchy-peanut-butter/
    • Peanutbutter.com/smooth-peanut-butter/

    Both these URL structure is good and more search engine friendly and it is more suitable for ranking.

    Second method is good because you will get visitors related to three keywords.

    Peanutbutter.com/smooth-peanut-butter/smooth-peanut-butter.[file_ext]

    • Peanutbutter . com/ crunchy-peanut-butter/
    • Peanutbutter . com/smooth-peanut-butter/

    These two are better than other .. as its giving complete meaning for your keyword

    It you but in the title "crunchy peanut butter" then the SE's will know.
    I think it doesn't makes a difference and the second version looks a little "spammy" for me. The first method is a lot cleaner

    Of course the second structure is better for SEO.

    What about my solution?
    Is it better or is it keyword stuffing?
