Google Now Indexing Up to Six Url Variables

Google Now Indexing Up to Six Url Variables

Some great news for those stressing over whether Google will be able to spider their very long dynamic urls. Appears in the last couple weeks Google has been pushing the envelope in terms of spidering urls that contain more than 5 variables and up to 6 variables in most cases. Who’s to say search engines don’t like dynamic websites? A trend that may be changing from what we originally thought Google could spider. There is a good discussion at Highrankings, where projectphp notices that some pages are now being picked up.

To illustrate here is an example of what Google is now picking up: ProductID=137474&menuId=0&MM=&icp=0&sti=1

There was some more reports of Google spidering 5 urls variables recently, and this week Google adds 6 url variables to the list. I am hoping its gets up to 7 variables, but here is hoping, and if they can do 6, it means they are close to 7 or more.
