thank you for the reply ...... I understand the difference between a site getting 2Billion backlinks and 20. Well, there are many reads that suggest static is better compared to dynamic as dynamic url tends to trap search engines ......however, you mentioned that it doesnt matters to search engines. I am little confused anyways here is the link to a site normal travel site that uses dynamic url and when you click the tabs like Hotel Details -Included Flights - Detailed Itinerary - Inclusion/Exclusion Policies the url changes (if you highlight the url you will see)but the page doesnt. So, doesnt this invites the issues of duplicate content? thank you

They're using #. This is compliant with HTML standards and it does not duplicate content. # is a signal of a different part of said page, not a different page. It sends the user to an area of the page with the specified ID, hence why when you click on these links, it drags you down the page. Example: #parentHorizontalTab1. Takes the user to where id="parentHorizontalTab1" is on said page. It should be noted, # (hash) in URLs are called URL fragments, not "dynamic URLs" & they're treated as the original URL. example.com/hello#shoes, would be treated as example.com/hello.

thank you, Matt .... I wasn't aware about # implementations and its complaints with html. So, we can say that the type/format URL above travel site is using will have no issues with SEO and ranking? thanks a lot for sharing your view.
One last thing Matt! I found these two URL in that travel site both led to home page without any # string in the url so it is the situation of duplicate content and once should apply rel=”canonical” right? thank you once again
Could you provide the URL?
Matt he is talking about tabbed content.
The page being referenced uses tabbed content and "Bookmark URLs" to display and focus the content.
