From a typical forum thread on user/search engine friendly Web site design:

Question: Should I provide meaningful URLs carrying keywords and navigational information?

Answer 1: Absolutely, if your information architecture and its technical implementation allow the use of keyword rich hyphened URLs.

Answer 2: Bear in mind that URLs are unchangeable, thus first consider to develop a suitable information architecture and a flexible Web site structure. You'll learn that folders and URLs are the last thing to think of.

Question: WTF do you mean?

Answer: Here you go, it makes no sense to paint a house before the architect has finished the blueprints.
