Dynamic VS Static URL Structure

Is it better to use a dynamic URL that includes information pulled from a database or a static URL that ends in something like .html

Dynamic URL Example

  • http://www.example.com/results.aspx?KW=example-widgets&HR=trackingcode

Static URL Example

  • http://www.example.com/example-widgets.html

The Answer

“If you decide to use dynamic pages (i.e., the URL contains a “?” character), be aware that not every search engine spider crawls dynamic pages as well as static pages. It helps to keep the parameters short and the number of them few.” – Google

It is better for users and Google if you use static pages for products & services.
