Can anybody tell me does Search Engine index pages that have the url like this - [<domain>.com...]

I read that Google for example do not index the page with "?" in url, is it true?

They will index it.. however, it's likely to get shoved in the "Supplemental listings".. in other words, your rankings might suck :(

I am pretty sure that all the engines will crawl urls with up to 3-4 querystring values (page.aspx?value=1&something=2&foo=3)

It's much much better to do some URL rewriting and have your URL look like this: www.domain.com/1/2/3/mypage.aspx

Ok, to clarify this a little bit. I'm using Drupal as CMS and it rewrites URLs for first page articles. There are only 5 articles at a time on the page. All other under page 1, 2, 3, etc .. and links to these 1-2-3 are exactly what I told above. But I'm still waht SE to index all those articles (even if they did sometimes ago when they were on the first page, I guess).

That is my concern. I do not know how to rewrite this 1-2-3 paging. If there is any way to do it in Drupal then it'll be good.
