I have a dictionary site where each entry has its own page with definiton, etc. on it. I use numbers for page URLs like 1.html...9879.html. I have no problem with Google indexing the site. Some 6500 pages out of 8,000 already indexed within 2 months period.
Having said this, I remember reading elswhere that using numbers as names for pages may trigger some flags (due to the consideration that such numbered html pages are automatically generated by some spam software).

What would be the maximun number of, erm, numbers be that you would feel safe using if that were the case?
It really seems as though you can hardly do anything these days, even if in all innocence. It's getting stupid now, for the white hat webmaster. Really stupid.

Joomla and predecessors use numbers. If this would be true 1000nds of innocent sites would suffer.
I still have my Joomla sites indexed but they tanked, maybe that's the reason, interesting. Joomla has an SEO feature, that turns the index.php? into urls. About 100 pages used to be on the first two pages.
Similar content on Coppermine with the whole index.php?bla=1 and so on ranks page 1 two after the obligatory wikipedia stuff. This might be yet another "spam" filter that goes awol.
There found it page 1 to 14. :(

This is completly insane.
Link 3 on that search term is a stock photosite with PR2 having a shopping cart.. no inbound links, well below my PR.
besides the search term in the title and once on the page all boilerplate like my coopermine site.
so are link 5 and 7 .. one picture and that's it. Menus adsense. Request for reviews.
Then a forum userpage no information on the subject whatsoever.
It looks like the algotithm is as follows.
Link to Wikipedia then randomize. :)

This keyword is suddenly back ... on page 1 on another server that is dying .. G bot is spidering as if there is no tomorrow. Let's hope this is just a temporary hiccup.
