    From my experience with PHP sites, I would say Google and AlltheWeb have no trouble with them. AltaVista and Teoma have a problem with them. Overture doesn't handle them well.

    With a scripted site, extra effort is needed to keep spiders out of certain places too. Nothing like a spider coming through hitting all your 'click here for bad link' or indexing all 'edit forms' for every dynamic item on your site.

    Static HTML is the best, but you can do a dynamic site it just takes more work.

    You can also use PHP and Perl to generate static HTML pages and upload them to the server. This is what I've choose to do because I want no trouble from search engine's.

    From ABW it seem pretty evident, RANK = MONEY. So why risk a search engine not liking your script.
