Keyword(s) in URL
Any Boost?

Ok, tonight I want to put this one in the bag. Keyword(s) in URL (specifically after domain), any point, or is this a dead horse?

I'm going dynamic. I just don't want to have to learn mod_rewrites unless it's an absolute must. What's the consensus?

Keywords in URL would certainly matter for any search engines but of course that doesnt mean keyword-keyword-yet-another-keyword in your url.

Mod_rewrite will not only make your url Search Engine friendly but also User Friendly and readable and quite shorter urls.

which looks better?
www.domain.com/products.php?Cat_ID=123456&Prod_ID=2345

or

www.domain.com/widgets/widget-item/
