|Shtml, Asp, Cgi, and other dynamic file types?|

I've not checked alta in awhile for file type support. I know you can find sht, shtm, shtml, asp, and cgi filetypes on alta, but what are their real status? Are they rankings killers like they used to be?

I have had limited success getting database driven pages indexed. I was mainly just seeing if I could get url's with a ? indexed at all. I was successful at getting them indexed but none of the pages ranked well.
My problem was that the content changed so often that all I could really optimize was the meta info. I eventually decided to concetrate more on the non dynamic sections of the site, and haven't had the time to do any follow up testing yet.

Anyone? I'd really like to know the answer to this one as well, as I have a whole site full of .shtml pages...... Thanks!

After spidering 2000 top kw's and finding 23 .shtml or .sht or .shtm pages in the top 20,000 results - ummm, shtml sucks.

what did you notice with asp and cfm pages?

Bret, I agree 23 in 20000 is not many, but to get true result of your test you would need to know the average ratio of shtml pages to all others on the net and then compare the two.
If there were only lets say 10 shtml pages for every 10000 other pages then the conclusion might be totally different.

I have many *.shtml pages that rank #1 and etc on AltaVista for my site. Matter of fact i am number 1 for (casino rating). And it is for a shtml page. I only use shtml though due to banner rotation.
