Default Dynamic Directories

Hi All,

Ive got a bit of a curly one and im not sure how to approach it, so thought maybe everyone could give me some ideas.

In relation to search engines they don't like dynamic data parsing though id's in order to find database information. Eg having a a products page and just parsing the category id or category name

Say we had a dynamic product page for books the link would be simular to
Products.asp?CatID=122 or Products.asp?CatName=books

However if we could convert these details into fake directories eg.
www.mydomain.com/books would take you to the products.asp page and display the correct product category.

Ive seen alot of sites do this, however im not sure how they do it.

Has anyone used this method before? or have any ideas to implement this.

Your advise or suggestions would be much appreciated.


Tim :D
