What's out there for ASP.NET URL Translation?

I've already got a site coded, and the URLs are all crap and not SEO friendly (I presume)....

Haven't done this before, would love some links to products that rock and are easy to implement globally.

Awarded points go to someone who gives me more than just a link... I'd like personal experience, gotchas, and some understanding of what I'm going to have to do codewise when I have a ...

REQUEST.QUERYSTRING["ItemId"]

As well as how the ASP.NET redirector is impacted, because right now I have the 404 being used for http://www.sitename.com/UserName to redirect to the users homepage.

Using IIS6 and ASP.NET 3.5FW, VS2008, C#

TIA!

The simplest way is to provide url mappings in web.config file.
Under <configuration> element type this:

<urlMappings enabled="true'>
<add url="~/News/SaveTheWhales" mappedUrl="~/News.aspx?Id=1" />
</urlMappings>

The url element is the non existent page that you would like for the user to access. mappedUrl is the actual url on your file system that the request is forwarded to. What the above does is to map any requests by the user to SaveTheWhales and forward that request to ~/News.aspx?Id=1

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else.
