I have a site that I am trying to optimize for Google.

1. Can you give us a link to your site, might help explain this is we can see it.
2. Bad Idea
3. I don't believe this should happen, do you have the checkmarks removed from "Show Copyright Credits"? in the host settings?
4. I'm not sure about this and have not heard it before. Google will certainly index pages very deep and I believe they can rank anything that's indexed. I could be wrong on this so I would also like to hear more.
Spend a few minutes reading this:
It's well worth the time.

If you turn off the copyright credits in host settings all the DNN references in the HTML will go away. That will solve 2 and 3.
As for the /'s, I don't know how accurate that is, I know google will surely find those pages and return them in search results. I don't have google toolbar installed so I don't see page ranks anymore.

Are you using a default install of the solpart menu?
Do you have any XML definitions for the skin when uploading the package? You've got something funky going and the solpart is building links based on the path of the skin. Can't say I've seen that happen before.

I got #1 fixed also. All it took was a reboot. Now I was wondering if I can get the url even shorter.
What effects will stem from shortening the URL and how hard would it be?
Thanks for the link to House Menu it looks great I will give it a try.

If you're trying to optimize your site for SEO then you won't want to remove "reservations" from the URL, unless of course that page has nothing to do with reservations.
Keywords that show up in the URL only help your SEO rankings as the page has more information related to keywords/url/description/content.

To answer question 1. No
To answer question 4
DotNetNuke 3+ URLs are well accepted by search engines
This URL is 3 levels deep off the menu and has a PR of 4. sub pages that are attached to this page are also have Google PR at levels 4, 5, 6, etc
Some interesting things that I have noticed is that Google, MSN and Yahoo have all recently updated their algorythm to anaylze dynamic links.
Check this one out
It is cached by all three major search engines.
Long URLs do not seem to be much of a problem now
Hope this helps
