QuoteLike it or not, the presence of keywords in a URL is material to the weighting search engines (even Google) give to a page
Quote from: karlbenson on August 08, 2008, 10:17:00 AMThe presence of keywords in the link bears no effect towards pagerank. (source google).They might however come into play as general keywords on the page where they are linked.

I think I'll go make a post to encourage the author to update his mod for pretty URL compatibility.I'm going to stick with the default + Sitemap, but I think I'll add the mod to my test site to explore how it works. Who knows, maybe I can figure out how to fix Sitemap and then we'd have the best of both worlds.
