Hello friends which is the best separator on the url.
for example
1. http://www.example.com/tags.asp?tag=hello-world
2. http://www.example.com/tags.asp?tag=hello+world

shortly "-" or "+" is best for seo

Thanks

Hypenated url is the best seperator to indicate the keywords that you want to crawl of search engines.

I suggest to use the hypenated one. Plus sign are always used to combine two words in searching while hypen is always used to combine two or more keywords in url.

Even google is using "+" in between the keywords.

I Think hyphens is best because Google sees hyphens as separator in URLs and body text.

I think hyphens (-) are the best URL separators. If you have already started using (+) and google bot has crawled it but you have nt got any page rank, then I think you can change the URLs.

Mostly hyphens (-) are used in urls for better view and rankings because it work as a key phrases.

Any of the "-" "+" or "_" will do.

- hypen would be the best one, I think. Although it's not mandatory to use hypen only...webmasters use also "_" and "+" as you already have in example 2.
