Today comes a new wave for search engines with the first-ever Beta launch of 'Dynamic URL Rewriting' in Site Explorer. The new feature provides the ability for site owners to alert Yahoo! of the dynamic parameters in URLs that they'd like Yahoo! to ignore, which we'll then automatically rewrite accordingly. Try this out for all the cases where you'd want to use parameters in your URLs that don't affect the content of your page, but that have other important uses.

I have been begging Google to do that for ages. Great to see Yahoo do something REALLY ahead of Google.
This is a huge improvement for all of us. Now we can tag all and any inbond links under our countrol and use that track for tracking purposes without creating duplicate URLS.
Well done Yahoo. Get on the train Mountainview!
This is my question as well. My robots.txt is already blocking these dynamic url's. Google respects it, however Yahoo! still indexes them.
On this new tool, you can only remove up to 3 parameters, so for me it's useless as I append a few parameters just on my PPC landing page url's. I need at least 5-6.
