Ive read somewhere, maybe here that keywords in the url are not so important for google ranking but are for yahoo?

Is this true?

IM so new to this! Id love to know in a few words ( if anyone one would be so kind) whats the most important thing to have sorted for good SEO? keyword density? inbound links?

Its totally the other way round. Its good to have the keywords in the URL for Google and not for Yahoo. The reason its good is you get the keywords in the url if some one does not use the anchor text to link to your content and nothing more than that.

Correct.
if we have nice keyword contain at domain, that may be useful for us.
