Googlebot surfs more like Firefox than IE

I mentioned in an earlier post that my asp.net website was showing up in Google with some very weird URL’s. I could not figure out why this was happening. I was using online spider simulators and could not figure out how Google was getting these weird URL’s. With some help from some people at www.webmasterworld.com I found out it had something to do with cookies. So I went to my site with Firefox and turned off cookies and there was the weird url. I did the same thing in IE and it did not.

    I suppose php is more welcomed by search engine. :)

    As lory said is this because the site is asp instead of html or php maybe?

    On a mild tangent – how’s your Yahoo! directory listing working out for you? Did you pay for it? I’ve never had one do very well, or even heard of a wildly successful listing.
