Currently about 65% of my visitors come from search engines. When doing a site search at google, I found about 400 of my 900 or so pages were indexed (the php version of course, as I just implemented the html version the other day).
Was it really worth it for me to convert my site over to HTML URLs? All of the threads use only one variable in the URL (e.g. php?t=80 or php?t=500). I read that google usually indexes dynamic pages with one or two variables.
It's all said and done now, but I am just wondering whether it was worth it in your opinion. Google already has 400 of my php pages already in its index, afterall.
Note that with mod_rewrite, both the HTML as well as the PHP versions of each page are accessible, though all navigation/links throughout the site use the html version.

I used CyberspaceHQ AddWeb 6 software to submit the index.html page to a whole slew of search engines and directories. In addition, I paid the $39 to have Inktomi index forums.html within 48 hours. This takes care of my two main pages: index.html (the homepage) and forums.html (the board index). I'm going to just leave everything be now and hope that the rest gets spidered. However, I'm pretty worried because it's been much more than 48 hours and still absolutely NOTHING!
Am I just being overanxious?
Inktomi paid inclusion does refresh every 48 hours (only on average!) but the first time can take 7-10 days to be included for some reason.
