search engines can not be force fed a cookie
they also do not like to index exceptionally long product ids after the query string
you need to have non java links to the inner content (images or text)

Submitting the interior pages shouldn't be necessary. There's a note on the Google Add URL page that says
Personally, I don't even submit the home page. I just make sure that a page in Google's index has a link to the site, and that the home page give the robot a path to easily find the rest of the pages.
Only the top-level page from a host is necessary; you do not need to submit each individual page. Our crawler, Googlebot, will be able to find the rest.

Actually he did SEO with some company who is not even aware search engines cant decode Flash well, search engines still cant decode DHTML from flash, so they rarely follow links in flash files, All the links to his inner pages had been buried in the Flash Header, that SEO company took 1000s dollars from him without a single phrase rank we, created all textual links on the bottom to link to all the pages and made the navigation proper, Now excellent ranking with all the inner pages PR5,
So it depends, Also what is the PR of your Index page is it 3 or 2 then google rarely shares PR to the inner pages of your site, A PR2 will rarely be passed on to its inner pages,
Depending on your situation I feel it is one of the above case,

That's not the point though - the point is that the toolbar just isn't very accurate and is always going on the fritz.
It seems (I didn't check today, but I did yesterday) that there's another update going on now, too. (Backlinks are different, which is the generally accepted sign of an update). When an update is going on, the toolbar is even worse because you never know which datacenter it's going to connect to (if in fact, it even connects to the same datacenters that we connect to when we search Google). The nature of the update itself makes the toolbar wildly inaccurate at this time anyway.
Fear not. You'll be fine.

You are going into too much detail here , I feel there is some problem with his site for google not assigning PR to his inner pages, One big problem could be navigation and internal link structure,
You cant blame google toolbar all the time , He has the problem for about 7 months so it is definetely a problem with his site, And google toolbar my favourite tool and works great for me all the time,

Make sure you submit to some major directories out there, and after a few months I'll bet you start to see more PR to your pages.

P.S. Somewhat unrelated - and I don't know if this is the site or not, but the site in your profile is thowing a 404 when I hit the clients link at the bottom.

I also have other sites that only show the index page with a PR, like www.cpap.net and he ranks in the top 5 for his keyword.
Just wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong. Thanks for the help though...

So if the problem is that G thinks they're different documents, the fact that it can't follow the link on the button is the reason there's no PR for that URL.

Google isn't going to crawl through flash, so it doesn't know those links exist. If you change it so that it goes to index.htm, then you will land on the same page that google has given credit for as being the page. It won't help or hurt anything other than making your toolbar more accurate when you go in through the flash links.

Or the bottom links to "/" so Google can crawl them. Like the others said, Google won't crawl Flash buttons. Changing them still won't get Google to recognize each page without the index.htm.
So I need to rename the flash links to /index.htm's? Think that'll do it?
Either way, I think your problem about your belief that none of your interior pages have PR has been solved. Google has just assigned the PR to the file name they were able to crawl and find.
