How search engine friendly are RoR sites?

I am a total RoR virgin, and took my first steps this weekend into the
Ruby world. A lot of sites I create need to be as SEO friendly as
possible, particularly for google. Before I delve any further, can
anyone tell me how friendly the dynamic URLs or if there is the usual
rewrite mod for rugby?

Thanks

Mike

Yes! that last rugby reference was a typo;)

Perfectly friendly. Rails has it’s own mod_rewrite-like thingy called
Migrations. And if that’s not enough, you can use whatever rewriting
magic your webserver supplies.

what do you think about urls like

http://your.web.here/posts/1

etc. buzzword restful urls is that enough or do you want more? if so,
you
can create even more custom routes but i dont think you’ll need that…
map.resources is just great

I think you mean Routes.

Ruby on Rails rewrites the URLs for you by default. If you dislike the
conventional rewriting that Rails performs, it’s very easy to
customize the rewriting to whatever you’d like by editing the routes.

Hang on, surely you mean Routes?

Migrations are to do with setting up and altering your database schema.

Routes: http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/Routes

Yeah, my bad, I meant routes of course.

Mike, Just a clarification in case you go off researching migrations;
they
have nothing to do with URL’s. They are for definging changes to your
underlying database. The URL magic for Rails is in config/routes.rb.
