I don't see why not. Can you make it relevant? It would be better e.g. http://www.test.de/keyword1-keyword2-keword3.html

Yes this link is perfectly indexable and the dashes will be conpletely ignored during searching.

Also, If you had two pages one named bob---fred and another bob fred they would both come up as top listings in google.

Only thing that would cause a problem (only for users searching for the exact phrase) would be putting a space before a dash, therefor enabling the negation modifyer to the search query.

Not true. The search |keword1-keyword2| is not the same as the search |keword1 keyword2|

I agree, I would say probably almost anything is indexable by google it really amazing. Nowadays people are rather worried about their private site been indexed by google. Letting the bots find you is easier than hiding from them nowadays...

completely ignored against space, google ignores special characters like that to a certain extent to avoid cutting a resource out that the user needed jsut because it had a | between the words instead of a space.

I shouldnt of said completely.

This is an acceptable url for google, but as duz suggested, you can do a mod-rewrite and use your keywords also in the URL. You can get some great information about mod-rewrite here on this forum:

Please let me know if you have any further questions about mod-rewrite
