Is really URL with variables no SEO friendly ?

Asked by Joaquin F., in Marketing
How much affects if you wrote just one index PHP or CGI and use variables in the URL compared if you use directories ? Of course if the keyword is same in the /?v=keyword and the /keyword ? My experience have been compare results in Google SERP for some keywords I did in both forms and got better result for variable instead directory or html file name.

I know , everybody just say "no SEO friendly", but who checked SERP for domain.xxx/?variable and domain.xxx/variable and compare results ?
My question is based on many say no SEO friendly and discourage the utilization of CGI variables, but at some time I did tested with same HTML in both forms and even variables version got higher position in Google.

Yes...Because use of special characters in URL barrier for crawlers so best way to avoid it.

The url with variable and query string is not user friendly because it is does not maintain hierarchy with broader categories to the left and more specific categories to the right. But user url without query string is count as user friendly because it is maintain hierarchy with broader categories to the left and more specific categories to the right.

It is best to use keywords or maybe what the page about as long as there's no special character.

Yes, the URLs are not SEO friendly, if it is auto generating, then these can be handled using canonical tags
