Remember: Most search engines (and I think all major ones) will not
index pages with query strings because it indicates that the content of
the page is not static and it prevents spamming to some extent. There's
multiple ways to disguise the query string though, the easiest and
probably most used involving mod_rewrite on apache servers.
