I have created a dynamicly driven site in asp, since search engines dont give good results to dynamic urls (with?sign in url) i have created a script which converts all GET parameters into a new form:::

old url, www.domain.com/imagegalleries.asp?gid=3&cpage=1&srt=2

new url is

i am interested in the following : is the above url ok for search engines, or would it be better if i use


and if yes, can you explain why is slash "/" better than minus "-" ...

waiting replies...

what is the maximum length or url to get good results with SE?

is it better that i use



i have decided to use gallery name in url as i thought it is good to have keywords in url?
gallery name can be from 10-50 characters long...

also because of custom gallery names, all urls will seem to be different, is that good for SEO?

and one last thing ::: is it good to use a file extension at the end of the url?


i suppose this way SE will think this page is in the root? and give it better rank?

If you use www.widget.com/widget.html
It helps to great deal on widget keyword.
I am unable to comprehend anything beyond this nor could I confirm or negate what ever you said.

Do you have any analysis of y choose this system.

One more thing ,if you are too deep inside..Use sitemap.
