friendly URL

Is there a way that I can rewrite the URL to show the category name, rather than ID(productlist.php?rb=4-201)

I had the same question, did you get a solution to this, I think it may be down to editing the .htaccess file. As the Shop Window client is pretty much the same for all sites, I believe it may be a fairly simple matter to edit a .htaccess (template) file to suit the individual website. Not being a developer that is about the limit of my knowledge, but from Wordpress permalikinks I know that by making URL friendly links it makes a big difference with indexing the website URL's on the search engines.
Any help with this would be gratefully accepted.

I've seen it done with the Shop Windows client, in fact, if you have a search on here, there is a thread that goes through some of the SEO htaccess stuff, however, most people that have managed to achieve friendly urls, will not share all of their techniques and methods, for competition reasons.

I've used friendly links and the standard links with the client and the difference i've found is minor to be honest.

What I found made a better difference, was changing the category names, so they aren't the standard ones that come with the client, shuffle the client around as much as possible, so it is not picked up by Google as a duplicate site and simply fill it out with as much other content as possible.

Simply put, Google does not like the Shop Windows Client straight out the box, due to people completely abusing the script during it's early days and flooding the net with duplicates, which for all purposes, completely crippled most peoples earnings from it.
