Keyword URLS with Apache Redirect and PHP
Pitfalls of Long Keyword URLS with Apache Redirect ?

I have two questions re: submitting keyword URLS with Apache Redirect and PHP.

We plan to submit several keyword URLS e.g. keyword1.site.com, keyword2.site.com, etc. to the five major search engines. In this case, we are using *Apache redirect* on the server side to point the URL to a specific page which is optimized for this keyword. Each optimized page is in turn a home page portal to our entire web site.

Question1: will search engines index this URL (keyword1.site.com) if the page returned by the server has a different URL (keyword1.site.com/keyword.htm?dir="/keyword/keyword1/") ?

Question2: will search engines index complex URLs in the form:

keyword1.site.com/keyword.htm?dir="/keyword/keyword1/"

keyword2.site.com/keyword.htm?dir="/keyword/keyword2/"

keyword3.site.com/keyword.htm?dir="/keyword/keyword3/"

Each of these keyword optimized pages is a homepage portal to our entire web site. Any other issues I need to be concerned about?

Thanks!

(shorten the nick there, you'll need to relogin with just Fluent).

If you have the cgi? form value exposed in the url (if I understand what you are doing correctly), most engines won't index that. If you are using Mod_rewrite, then that seamlessly will translate the urls - the cool way to go.
