    Have no idea to be honest, but google does do most sites with dynamic content. How else would hundreds of people, if not thousands, have found this place? Most likely have been google or search engine results which pick up threads of other people in the same situation.

    No one knows the real way google works, apart from google themselves.

    Obviously Google is advanced sufficiently and therefore magical.

    neh, I think its the Web that is advanced and google is merely an application of it - a good one, granted, but and application - nonetheless.

    Google usually lists dynamic links of higher ranked website or which it thinks is important .

    personal exp: my site had PHPnuke , at first it used have PR 2 then only few links used to get listed .. when it wass PR 2-3 , google bots started crawling the dynamic links too (even with sessions) .

    donno for sure , if it was based on ranking or it was the time when google changed way of searching .
