    Im wondering if anyone has tried toying around with mod_rewrite versus $REQUEST_URI in regards to content management.

    Reason I'm asking is that I am thinking of making my current site easier to index for search engines, as described in Tim Perdue's article on PHPBuilder (http://www.phpbuilder.net/columns/tim20000526.php3) so that instead of using URLs with the querystring like:

    I'd redirect to either a ReWriteRule or use Tim Purdue's method to "snatch" it and parse the var's so a link like:

    would work instead.

    I'd particularly like to know which is the fastest method since im heavily dependent on a speed optimized site (got 50k+ unique hits a day and growing)

    Using mod_rewrite to do www.mysite.com/article/5/4/ is slow. If you enable RewriteLog, it's even slower.
    Enter "RewriteEngine" as keyword and search the Apache Forum if you need to know more.
