My index page is getting indexed but none of my other pages are. I was wondering if spiders prefer absolute links or if relative links are OK?

My site uses all relative links. I think my problem has to do with that.

Thanks
Dan

hi,

Im not sure what you mean in different types of links?
Sometimes spiders have time to get deep into sites, esp if its new. I would suggest a sitemap linked from the home page to get you started ..make the site a nice meal for a robot..

There should be no problem with relative links, if there is no error in them. How long has your index page been indexed? Normally, just being patient helps :).

Thanks for the info. I actually thought of the sitemap just this morning. I will be patient. I am a veteran to web design but I am a new player in dealing with spiders/robots/crawlers and to site promotion. So I am reading the postings and trying to catch up to the game.

Thanks again
