I am currently building a website for Hot Tubs and within this there will be New Tubs, Used Tubs and Hire Tubs (each will be a top level page on the navigation, and each tub will have a details page). Each tub will only exist in one of the three sections. The templates will be different and so I have decided to go for 3 individual channels.
However, any thoughts from a URL structure/SEO etc on the different approaches to URLS for sections. I am thinking of either keeping them all separate like so:
www.domain.co.uk/used-hot-tubs/ www.domain.co.uk/used-hot-tubs/name-of-used-tub/ www.domain.co.uk/hot-tubs/ www.domain.co.uk/hot-tubs/name-of-new-tub/ www.domain.co.uk/hot-tubs-for-hire/ www.domain.co.uk/hot-tubs-for-hire/name-of-hire-tub/
Or whether they should all be structure like so?
www.domain.co.uk/hot-tubs/used/ www.domain.co.uk/hot-tubs/used/name-of-used-tub/ www.domain.co.uk/hot-tubs/new/ www.domain.co.uk/hot-tubs/new/name-of-new-tub/ www.domain.co.uk/hot-tubs/hire/ www.domain.co.uk/hot-tubs/hire/name-of-hire-tub/
www.domain.co.uk/used/ www.domain.co.uk/used/name-of-used-tub/ www.domain.co.uk/new/ www.domain.co.uk/new/name-of-new-tub/ www.domain.co.uk/hire/ www.domain.co.uk/hire/name-of-hire-tub/
Any input/thoughts appreciated….
EDIT: I should add this is not an eCommerce website, although the structure could lends itself to that and that the top level domain does contain the words hottubs.
