I developed a web site using ASP. Links on my pages typically look like (in status bar) as: http://localhoast/file.asp?id=1&name=first. I would like my links look like (in status bar and address line) as http://localhoast/id/1/name/first/file.asp (or something like that) and redirect user to original link.

My questions are:

1) What can you recommend me to buy (for SEO) - LinkFreeze or ISAPI_Rewrite?

2)Can I implement scheme described above and links' appearance using ISAPI_Rewrite?

3)How will my links look in status bar and address line after installation ISAPI_rewrite? The point is that I installed ISAPI_Rewrite and tried to use different rules, but didn't find any changes in appearance of my links.

Thanks in advance.

1. It depends on your development skills and how many time you may spend for SEO. ISAPI_Rewrite is much more complex solution but it is only solution to do something like you ask.
2. No. In the URL you have described it is not possible to find a margin between parameters and real file path. In our practice we are using URL format like http://localhoast/file.asp/id/1/name/first I hope you get the poing, there should be some logic in the URL to restore original format.
3. ISAPI_Rewrite does not change links on the pages, you will have to do this manually.
