can't tell you really, i think you the best thing if your url is like
" http://www.simcityfree.com/May-2013/simc...nload-free"

now short vs long urls are weird but again i think is not that important because i have blogspot and the name is very long and i get good ranking.

Hope this made any sense :D

According to google webmaster tools, "Overly complex URLs, especially those containing multiple parameters, can cause a problems for crawlers by creating unnecessarily high numbers of URLs that point to identical or similar content on your site. As a result, Googlebot may consume much more bandwidth than necessary, or may be unable to completely index all the content on your site."

But the examples given in the webmaster tools are complex urls such as "example123example.com/index.php?id_sezione=360&sid=3a5ebc944f41daa6f849f730f1" .

So it does matter but I think you will be fine as long as you use common sense really.

I've read an ebook about Google (if you want it PM me) and
it says that when you search for something at google the first
thing that google search for is a domain that matches your search.

yes.. url should not be too long to include all your keyword...Beside this if your url length is long then visitor will face problem to memorize it..
