Will Google follow this type of link?

We are looking at buying a canned web site complete with products.

A typical link to a product looks like this:


Will Google be able / willing to follow this link and index the page?

I don't think we have a choice and the web site comes this way.

Are there programming alternatives to passing these variables in the URL

IIS? ISAPI_Rewite?

Right, those are two of the common alternatives. And yes, even without rewriting those urls Google can follow the link - two parameters in the query string is not a problem.

Just be sure that those URLs point either to unique content or return a 404 status when ANYTHING changes, even the order of the paramters.
