"How many product pages you have reflect ranking?" Sure it does - even if it doesn't it does affect your traffic. Also - Google can spider dynamic pages as long as you place a link or two to the page from another page that it has spidered.
In your case, I'd say you could categorize your products and link to them from these "category" pages. And also between all products within those categories...are you with me?
What I have done is to creat a "product index" link on a static page that links to the first in a series of links to each product. Be sure this page is already in Google.
Call page one something like "keyword_001.asp" or whatever. Then write a script that outputs 100 links to the first 100 products with dynamic urls. Scripting this is a lot easier than hard-coding 1000 links.
At the top of the page, create a "<-- Back ¦ Next -->" deal that will walk Googlebot to the next page in the series ("keyword_002.asp"), and so on and so on.
As I understand it, Google will take your dynamic urls (so long as they don't have more than 2 variables) but will not follow them. However, sometimes it does if their is only 1 variable.
Try to make your "product index" link unattractive to human visitors.
