I see the possible validity of just adding keywords to url's but maybe its penalised ? For example I am promoting roatan-diving.com and with joomla CMS the serch engine friendly url has mostly numbers and no words , so is it valid to just put some in my links then get mod rewrite to just remove them but the seacrh engine sees the words.

thanks for the advice I dont know if this is worth doing.

Yeah. Having keywords (you mean in the meta tag?) is search engine friendly, so it's good.

No i mean inserting them in the url like www.roatan-diving.com/roatan/diving/photos/1/0 where all is actually used is the 1 and 0 by the webpage to know which photo to show.

Yeah I'm sure it's fine. After studing a wealth of CMS, I have noticed that this is a common thing for SEO. I think Google might notice though if you put irrelevant content there. :)

Yeah, these are the so-called search engine friendly URLs, so they should be better if you want to be higher ranked at search engines.
