convert asp page into html page
convert asp page

 2:19 pm on Oct 18, 2004 (gmt 0)

hai all,
I am Working for poitioning our site.i have a doubt for how asp pages convert into html type pages for search engine spiders.

any one pls reply or help me

Some of the asp code is creating the straight HTML code. When viewed on the resulting page, the spiders see pure HTML code. Even the asp code which is, for example, pulling data out of a database and formatting it into a table, ultimately results in simply an HTML table full of data.

Does this answer your question?

If I understand correctly, you are working on positioning your site, and are asking how search engine spiders crawl a page which is written in asp. Is that correct?

Even though the page is written in asp, when the document is displayed, take a look at the source code (within the web browser) and you will see what the search engine spiders see; HTML code.

Does that make sense?

I think you're operating under the assumption that pages ending in .asp somehow rank lower than .html pages in search engines.

There are exceptions, of course - like asp pages with long querystring values (page.asp?id=qwyetywquyrtuy). But it's been my experience that sites with .asp files do just as well as those with pages ending in .html

So if you're trying to change your .asp to .html purely to improve your rankings, it's probably not going to have that effect.

Maybe others can offer opinions too. There are many things webmasters can do to try and increase positioning, but changing filenames isn't likely to have a big impact.

Bottom line:
It doesn't matter what language your pages are written in, all that matters is what is outputted in the HTML that's returned to the browser. It should be formatted (at least) semi-correctly, and should not contain any possible spam methods.

As for querystrings, just keep it reasonable. Google does fine handling 3 or 4 values (just look at the SERPS), as do most of the big SE's (as long as you don't have variables listed as "id").

It's all HTML in the end, and that's the stuff that matters most.

Thanks friends,

But i read an article in some sites they said if the asp query string URl "?" will be change "/" type syntex SE spiders can index our page easily

Also they are recommand a tool like ISAPI Rewrite mod.

But its configuration is too critical.so i want a easy method for change the Query string "?" to "/"sting url in .ASP pages

any one help me?
