While e-commerce website needs a large storage space to store the items image/information and a high bandwidth usage web hosting.

The Uniform Resource Locator (URL) should contain keywords, separated by hyphens without being too long, around 128 characters is probably a sensible upper limit for the entire URL. The Ttle tag should contain the keywords because the Title taq would be the vital source for search engine to understand your page. Example of a Title tag:

<META NAME="keyword" content="toys, toys shopping center">
<META NAME="description" content="Toys shopping center provides the latest toys series for your children">
