How can I make my shopping cart search engine friendly?

Session IDs Can Stop Search Engines Cold

Any reasonably successful online merchant understands that search engines provide nearly all of the qualified traffic to his or her web site. This is why paid search with Google, Yahoo and MSN has become such big business. But did you know that your Internet shopping cart software may be an impediment to making your e-commerce site search engine friendly?

If this is a problem with your site, you might want to look for a shopping cart that doesn't create these URLs.
