im not sure where to put this,but this topic seems to come close to my question...

can anyone of you....think of any negative things if i should put a tutorial on my site that contains 5,6,7,or even 8000 html files?
Like heavy loading or a huge traffic because of crawlers...?

The only negative I can think of is the amount of time it's going to take to produce the content. This is assuming you're writing it from scratch.

but i cant imagine its all that great being crawled...
must be a negative thing to it..

8k files isn't massive - and if you add a few chapters a day i doubt there would be problems.

an existing tutorial?

would it be considered duplicate content then?
(does it exist on someone else's website and you're going to copy it to yours?)

its the php manual...

its the php manual

Which presumably you either wrote, or if not, have permission from the copyright holder to put online?

On the off-chance the content isn't yours, don't make the mistake of thinking you can get around copyright law by changing the delivery medium from print to web.

Seeing as it's dup content you won't get ranked for it anyway so just exclude robots from indexing those pages using the robots.txt file.
