    I searched google for this phrase I took from your URL:
    php?id=

    Got 13,900,000 hits.

    So I'll vote yes.

    I think you'll only run into problems when you have more than 2 variables in the query string. So this is valid:

    script.php?id=1234&brand=Sony

    And this is not:

    script.php?id=1234&brand=Sony&sortby=price

    It may have changed, but this is what I noticed a couple months ago.

    When you don't want to put your domain name in a thread, please don't use someone else's domain (ssss.com) in a clickable link.

    Use the domain specificly put aside for the purpose - example.com

    You can have 4 or 5 variables in a the query string and still get indexed. But the fewer variables you use, the easier it is to get the bot to follow the link. Don't know why.

    You can't (or shouldn't) use temp session ids, and you should avoid using the word "id" in the query. This according to Googleguy.
