No matter what keywords you are targeting for what but it’s important to give some stylish names and most wanted keywords to file. Here are some tips to figure it out

★ Is File Extension important ?
I think no, file extension like .Php or .Html and .htm do nothing for your site visitors. They didn’t improve your search engines optimization at all. They way it’s used for that whenever your site visitors load your page , Web server read that extension page to configure it onto your visitors.
Many of webmaster think that using file name without any extension is good way to improve Seo, it may help you but not a whole lot.
