A page that changes each time it's viewed?
what gives?

 8:54 pm on Sep 17, 2000 (gmt 0)

I just saw a page that is different each time it is viewed.
I noticed a page that ranks well all over AV, so naturally I checked out the source code. The META TAGS are different each time I look at it! I looked at it with this tool where It says: SEARCH ENGINES, see what they see, that I use when I want to see if cloaking is used and it just keeps changing the keywords and title no matter how many times I look at it--I can't see how it is done. They have lots of links to their other pages at the bottom, but the page always looks the same, except for the META TAGS. I never did find the page that is actually listed in the search engine. Anybody familiar with this?

Does the page have a .cfm extension? They seem to be "burning brightly" at the moment.

Yes! What in the world is it?
How is it that AV likes it so much?

.cfm is for pages which use cold fusion. It is a server side language which uses tags quite similar to HTML to generate dynamic output. It's a farily simple language to learn. For more info go to [allaire.com...]

Thanks. I looked at some tutorials on it.
Now for WHY they do it?
It sounds like an awful lot of work.
What are the benefits?
And do the SEs see a different page each time they visit?
This wouldn't be a good thing, I thought.
