Never heard of it. It sounds odd that there would be a file with a .dll extension in the URL, however. Aren't .dll files system files? Are you sure that's the actual URL of the site?

http://www.websitename.com/isap/isapi.dll is the URL displayed when you enter the .com address. You never see the .dll extention after that point. If you leave the home page and return the URL is www.website.com/page.home/sessiion_id.<random string> The URLs for all subsequent pages end the same way i.e. /page.<whatever>/session_id Unfortunately the web developer has no desire to tell me why he coded the site this way, even when I said “pretty please”. I know I have an obstacle dealing with session ids, but wondering if the .dll page going to give me fits as well.

And yes, the .dll page may also be a problem. Generally the extension doesn't matter, but I would be concerned about .dll.
Still, I'm only guessing. Maybe others here have dealt directly with this sort of thing and can add something more intelligent!

Also, if I was a paid SEO expert for a site, I would expect to know exactly what it did. Everything. There would be no 'secret web functions' affiliated with my company without me knowing about it. Not an SEO expert but assume that to be effective at your job you need to know the purpose of the site and how the informatioin is retrieved.....asp,cold fusion,jsp. Can't maximise the search engines spidering the site if you don't know how it works.

Another funny thing was on this same site, they were using the freefind.com search box that we were discussing in another thread.
Isn't it weird how once you hear about something, suddenly you start seeing it everywhere?
I bet if you keep your eyes open, you might notice that isapi .dll stuff on more sites than you realize ever had them.

So, it appears that the isapi rewrite is a GOOD thing for seo, not a bad one at all.
