Are these 4 example URLs (below) too long for Google, and Search Engine Optimization?
I find that none of the pages are showing up in the Google listings, not even after page 10 and on.
Are the search engines have difficulty with these URL's?  thanks

Hi,

I dont think Search engine wud have problem with them.

I have a OSCOMM site with same length as the 1st one and it is doing ok.

If pages are new then Give it some time while There are other things you should consider to promote the pages.

ASHISH T.
