    I want to know if there is a difference between these two in the search engines eyes.

    1. http://www.mywebsite.com/KEYWORD

    OR

    2. http://www.mywebsite.com/keyword.html

    I need to know asap - because I am building a site with oscommerce and am having some issues.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, the search engines will treat them differently, even if they display the same page.

    I am not an expert, but i think that you can redirect website.com/KEYWORD to show up just like that, no need for /index.html
    And that is OK for SE.
    Or i am wrong ?

    There's no difference except how the URL looks like.

    I think it's better to use a folder with an index file. It looks better in the URL bar and in the search engines. Just remember to link to your folder and not the index file.
