[edit reason] sorry, no specific references to sites. [/edit]
It depends on how simple the URL is. I have much more success with php than cgi.
I have had google picking up cgi on 1 of my websites.
But its better with asp and php.
right ,i agree with you.php better than cgi
I agree that PHP is better, but I don't know why an SE would think so. As far as the browser is concerned, PHP and CGI are the same thing, just with different extensions.
Google only started to give page rank to CGI pages in the last few months.
Php and asp have been asigned page rank for as long as I can remember.
We don't care what the file extension is. Well, don't make it .exe. :) But there's no boost for .php vs. .cgi vs. .asp vs. whatever.. :)

That's weird. With a php message board, after I dumped the session IDs, BANG, indexed the site.
php= Main page --> Message board indexes --> Page 2 --> and so on, all get's indexed.
But on .cgi I don't see it get deepcrawled very far in.
cgi= Main page --> section index --> item page. Only goes two pages deep, to section index.
Are these bad cgi URLs?
I put them in .shtml using SSI to get them listed.
The id= might be bad.
"id=" can look like a session id. I'd avoid session id's in any form if you can..
But there's no boost for different file types.
No boost, but some URL extensions don't seem to get crawled.
The 'normal' ones do, but domain.com/file.somethingunusual won't get in by virtue of returning text/html as the Content-type.
