If there is something that prevents your sites to be indexed by Google, 
this is certainly not due to Cocoon. Try the following two searches:


Google will report that it has indexed 331 pages from the first site and 
521 from the second. Both are *entirely* generated by Cocoon: the former 
statically, the latter dynamically.

And if you're asking "how", well, there's no "how". It's just HTML, as 
far as Google is concerned. If you want to be indexed by Google, there's 
only one way to do it: get a link to your site onto one or more pages 
that are already indexed by Google and make sure that the link text is 
relevant. The higher the number of links and the higher the "Page Rank" 
(TM) of the pages they're on, the better.

Can't speak for Inktomi or other SE's, but I bet there's not much
