Search engine indexing and photopost

Hello,
Search engine friendliness is very important for us.
I see that photopost is using short urls with no session hash, so there should be no problem indexing a photopost site. (existing users comment on this are welcome).

Is there anyway to have the names of the categories or picture title in the url, with maybe mod rewrite ? This would be even better.
Examples welcome.

Thanks,
Koros

Hello,
thanks for your answer.

I mean not in the title tag, but in the url itself.

well you would need to try and hack cat names or titles in the url.

Spiders usually extract that stuff from the page anyway.

The url's themselve are extremely spider friendly as seen

I have seen little sites with extreme rankings.

OK, and a quick question: does photopost allow an entry to be added to multiple categories ?

Will spidering of itself cause increase of page view counts, or does it just grab the link?
I understand that enabling spider friendly URls will generate more exposure, thus more traffic/view counts generated at the site...
... but if a spider picks up a link, does that consume the bandwidth of the image and also generate a view count?

Mark
Considering whether to enable it

Good question - I'm not sure if spiders also fetches images within a page or not. I wouldn't think so, but I could be wrong (particularily for stuff like images.google.com).
