How does Google like to find content?

I have stumbled across a website that houses all of its content in the root of the domain, for example:

www.domain.co.uk/index.htm
www.domain.co.uk/page1.htm
www.domain.co.uk/parent-page.htm
www.domain.co.uk/child-page.htm
www.domain.co.uk/article.htm

The results for the website are very impressive and the homepage is notably strong for some core phrases.

I tend to adopt a best practice structure like so:

www.domain.co.uk/index.htm
www.domain.co.uk/theme/page.htm
etc etc

Does anyone have any views on the first example would benefit SEO results?

Cheers

Re: How does Google like to find content?

if all things were equal the fact that the pages were off the root directory may have a slight lift but I think you will find they are just doing a better job deep linking into the site
