Hi Sergio,

We've discussed SEO about a month ago: http://www.nabble.com/SEO-and-Seaside-td17187198.html

Short answer: Seaside's URLs are suboptimal, but you can get  
acceptable results adding restful URLs and configuring Webmaster  
Tools. Depending on the requirements this may not be sufficient,  
though. In our case (cmsbox.com) we tweaked Seaside a bit more to get  
completely "nice" URLs.
