I tried to read through and see if anyone said this or not before 
posting, but I'm not 100% sure. Anyway, your URLS aren't at all 
descriptive. I know this may seem like a nitpick, but as a user it's 
much easier to remember domain.com/about for an about page than 
domain.com/somethingthathasnothing?todowithit. A simple URL to the 
information I want makes me more likely to file that information away 
in the back of my brain. As a result, you get free advertising when 
someone talks to me and is in need of a product and/or service you 
offer, you also are more likely to get me back if I ever need something 
you offer.

Of course, if you did that to discourage "deep linking," well, I hate 
you :P.
