How Google see my links

Hi E's,
I got a solution to create friendly URL's in my project, but not sure how Google will save or show these links.
The fact that I save the name of the friendly URL's in a database does not allow me to use the normal rewrite mode, so,
I had to opt for a slightly different solution, as you can see in this issue: EE Question

Basically this is the mechanism at work:mechanism
This simple example work in this way.
In index.php I have a link, with a friendly URL. When I click, .htaccess redirects to router.php. router.php will send to the real URL, in this case was article.php, but can be any URL. At first had this URL www.mydomain.com/article-eight-seven-eigth and at the end I will have a page with the real URL, like www.mydomain.com/article.php?id=878

This is the code of all files:
index.php
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>home</title>
</head>
<body>
<p><a href="article-eight-seven-eigth">article 878</a></p>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window

.htaccess
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^.*$ router.php [L]

Open in new window

router.php
<?php
//I will check url and redirect page based and that url

header( "Location: article.php?id=878" ) ; 
?>

Open in new window

article.php
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>article</title>
</head>
<body>
<p>the number of article is: <? echo $_GET['id']; ?></p>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window

So, my question is, how google will index the page, www.mydomain.com/article-eight-seven-eigth or www.mydomain.com/article.php?id=878?

The best regards, JC

Google will index
www.mydomain.com/article-eight-seven-eigth

It will never see
www.mydomain.com/article.php?id=878
as that is for internal use only

But don't use something like article-eight-seven-eigth for the url, use the actual article title using the function I gave you in the other question to create the url from the title.
