How do spiders handle Server Side Includes? To they just find a link to the content, or do they see the rendered page for indexing?

Welcome to WMW.

SSI is handled server side and the spiders will only see the rendered HTML.

And they will not see the last-modified date in the response header unless you use the XBitHack method.

I don't know what the implications of the Last-Modified header missing are. NL will put "date not available" and I don't know what future date AV would put on it ;)

Thanks guys. I guess my question is whether or not using SSIs are going to hurt my search engine rankings?

Although a different spin on the same topic... Novice question...
Am I correct to say that a spider does not crawl a site unless it is submitted to a search engine (google, altavista)?
