I have a site that allows people to look up words that "Start with" or "End with" a certain set of characters. I am trying to figure out how to get off on the right foot with search engines and I was wondering:
Is it better to have URLs that appear to be unique pages? For example:
Both of these would return the same data, but I am wondering if the first is better because it appears to be a unique page to a crawler?
At the end of the day the source code will only contain about 6 pages in it, but with all of the StartsWith/EndsWith letter sets, there are probably millions of possible combinations that people could get to. How would I (and should I) create a site map for pages that do not physically exist, but have unique URLs with unique content? Are there any other steps I should take to make sure that crawlers can find all of these different combinations?
Update There will be no duplicate content on the site
