When new pages or articles are created in Drupal, a link is created for it. The URLs of these links contain the string "?q=" and look like: http://www.domainname.com/?q=node/15.
To improve the look of your links, and make them search engine friendly at the same time, set the Clean URLs option in the Administration section. Go to Administer -> Site Configuration -> Clean URLs. Select Enabled and save. You may need to upload or change the permissions on the file called .htaccess in your web root folder. 2020Media can help you with this.
