    Right now I have my url structure as this:

    site.com/restaurant/Sonnys_BBQ/172/

    Would it beneficial to change it to something along the lines of:

    site.com/orlando-fl/ucf/sonnys-bbq


    Also, if it is a good idea to change it, how would this effect my placement in searches? I'm doing pretty good as it stands, but want something to give me an extra boost. I've heard some things about permanent 301 redirects, is that would I would have to use?

    I suck when it comes to the seo business, so any input is appreciated.

    the possiblility of it hitting a return on restaurants florida keyword search can be improved by adding /restaurants/orlando-fl/sonnys as a url.

    The more popular your site is, more return links to your site from others will have the greatest effect on placement.
