Does Google Spider cgi? or cgi-bin?

I have a forum which I am trying to get spidered. I have removed the session from the URL and submitted a URL like this:


Will Google visit this URL? Thanks.

It may or may not. They spider dynamic pages, but I don't know about semicolons. I had a site I switched over to use semicolons, but Google didn't grab any of the dynamic pages. I switched it back to ampersands, and the next day Google tried to grab some semicolon pages, whatever that means.

Check logs for googlebot at that page, if don't, consider something like mod_rewrite

That looks pretty good to me, guillermo5000, but I'll try to ask around as well. Yeah, judging from the results for
inurl:ikonboard inurl:act
it's at least possible--I see lots of similar url patterns indexed.

If you want other search engines to crawl you, you might thing about what another poster suggested too--having static-looking urls might help for other engines. But I think you'll be fine for Google.
