URLs are a minor ranking factor search engines use when determining a particular page or resource's relevance to a search query.
Placing a keyword in a particular URL on your website means that Google has determined that the content of that URL is more relevant to the keyword than other pages on your website. This could be for a number of reasons, such as optimized page content for the keyword or better links pointing to that page.
Google has confirmed that URLs are a minimal search ranking factor.
For a website to have multiple pages ranking for the same keyword, it's essential to ensure that the content on these pages is distinct and relevant to the keyword. Duplicate or thin content can lead to SEO issues and negatively impact the overall performance of your website in search results.

As an SEO best practice, consider consolidating content targeting the same keyword into a single, comprehensive page to avoid keyword cannibalization and provide users with the best possible experience. This can also help you focus your SEO efforts on a single authoritative page rather than spreading them across multiple pages.
