No.I guess fancy URLs will help web crawlers which can give us more
visibility on search and give hits. I am working on the quick links page
which will contain links to cities / states and places that are well mapped
and might interest people. Ex:- Coimbatore Golf Course or Tirupati Hills.
This can also be a place for visibility where other people in the community
can know what has been mapped well.
