One of my sites - www.relocationbulgaria.co.uk (http://www.relocationbulgaria.co.uk) - is a real estate site with a property search facility on each page.

Google appears to be indexing every possible combination of searches as a separate page. There are only 14 pages, but already since the beginning of January I have 82 pages indexed.

If Google is doing what I think it's doing (as described above) , by my calculations I will have 400 pages indexed by the time it has finished.

My question is - is this a good thing or a bad thing? Or maybe it makes no difference?

Google is following the searches on the site - you might want to put in nofollow on the search feature.

And I think you have more than 15 pages, as there are all the more information pages on each property? But I didn't count :)

Thank you Beth. The data for each property is held in a MySQL database, and it is imported into the search function when the visitor requests it.

Does that count as a separate page?

If it dynamically generates a page with this search info.. then yes.. it counts it as a page when it finds it.

.........and is it a bad thing that Google indexes the page?
