I'm trying to figure out if there is any difference between the two for Google or Yahoo, is there a difference between the two? and does anyone know if either one of those will rank better with google :)

Cyber-SEO, IMO page names are way overated when compared to other factors on page and off page (not that it shouldn't be considered). If both were linked similarly (passing PR) I wouldn't think it would make any difference. NEBody else?

If your concern is "allinurl", obviously it won't matter: either form gets "this-way" into the URL. There are some who believe that there is a loss when one goes down a level in directories, but opinions vary.

i dont find 'keyword' directories helping even half as much as 'keyword' pages.

That makes sense if you think about it from an SE standpoint, a directory holds pages about something, a page "IS" about something. Although I will be honest I sometimes go as far as /keyword/keyword.html I honestly dont know the difinative answer and some testing might be a good idea, anyone have suggestions for the test?

I usually go the pluralversion-of-keyword/singularverison-of-keyword.htm

Yeah i think we definately need a good test :) make a good keyword for the test would be: "Bull shizzle" i'll put some up on my pages and if anyone else could do the same we will see how well it would rank :).
