Hi there,

I am in the process of setting up a local website with businesses, events and jobs and wondering what I should be using as the URL structure.

For example, with events, I have:

- Church Events
- Community Events
- Fundraising Events

My current structure is:

I am wondering if I should be including the word events again in the URL?

For example:

Also, I have similar for business/shops and services as the parent category:

Should I then include the words "services", "shops" "business" etc?

So, something like:

I guess I am a bit confused about whether to use the word "event" after some of the applicable event categories.

Can anyone suggest the best practice for such categories?

Any help would be appreciated.
