Re: Why will my pages not get picked?

A page called:

www.site.com/site/products.html?a1b2c3d4e6

Seems a bit too dynamic for google to handle and google tends to
visit website url that only people would type in. For example...

www.johndoe.com/?00/cgi-bin/8346985bw634b346bc346b$$

This dynamic page building needs to be translated so it can be
transparent to the end user. Some web admins have their server
setup so that when a person types in www.jondoe.com it will be
redirect to

www.jondoe.com/?cgibin/redirect/index.html

Whereas your:
www.site.com/site/specpage.html?nov-hdd300 seems to be more
static in nature and edited by hand. Further more ingeneral its
a bad idea to rely on have sites googled ending with a question
mark.
