I am using query string urls

website.com/category.php?a=apples
website.com/category.php?a=oranges
website.com/category.php?a=grapes

how can I change these urls to be search engine friendly

also in the php I use a get statement in the begining of code
$a=$_GET['a']
would there be a different way to do this if I have to use search engine friendly url

and why is a url search engine friendly, what is the difference
