    I have a number of sites built in php, and all of them get pretty good Google ratings, even one built with Xoops, which I have been told elsewhere would be a problem. (This applies to both content and affiliate type sites). As far as I can tell, Google will still follow all php links except those with a session id.

    Marifer,

    PHP is fine.

    I agree with usefulweb, regardless of whether you're using PHP, ASP, JSP, or EIEIO, SessionID's are bad. I've heard that having a parameter named ID is a bad idea. Also, I've heard that too many URL parameters can be troublesome.

    Google seems to have changed slightly recently. I did have a lot of pages with an ID parameter showing up (though not a session ID), but they have disappeared in the last dance. I'm not really sure whether they are likely to reappear so I've renamed that parameter. I've also heard that long strings of parameters can cause a problem, but I've certainly not had any problems with around 5.

    I've heard that behavior around this depends on your page rank. Are your those pages that got included with so many parameters ranked highly?

    This was a while ago now, but no, this was a newish site at PR4. Though it was listed in both Yahoo and DMOZ, so that may have made a difference.

    Just checked, my longest parameter string now is 3 and that certainly is spidered without problems.
