    Hello!

    Anyone know how to get Search Engines to index your dynamically generated pages? I am designing a database-backed content site that will serve nearly all of the content dynamically (i.e. go.php3?cat=XXX). However, I have been told that search engines automatically ignore pages that have question marks in the URI.

    An example of search engines able to index a dynamically generated page is epinions.com which has the URI format:
    http://www.epinions.com/cmd-review-4...38B15126-prod2

    Please notice that there is no question mark in the URI. Anyone know how I may be able to do this? Thanks!
