I've been using mod_rewrite on my site for two months now but the front page is still the only thing listed in google. Am I doing something wrong?

I can't find any pages to spider I don't see how Google can. Also I don't think commas are a good idea in file names. <snip> Make a site map that will solve a lot of problems.

Well I won't argue it's a good site, but anyway. The permalinks, those are the links I want spidered.

The more backlinks with better PR the better chance of Google indexing the whole thing. Has googlebot ever spidered those things. PR is a big factor in getting pages indexed. I had a site that I did a rewrite on and they showed up a week later but I have a PR6.

Thanks. It makes sense now. I didn't realize that PR was such a big deal because I've had sites before with low PR and they were all spidered.

I did not say that they would not get spidered just that Google puts them way down in the priority list.
