Keywords/themes optimizing for DB queries...
Or is this worth it...

Hi All,

Not sure where to post this, finally settled on the keyword forum.

My site is using a DB for the shopping cart feature/portion. I am going to dynamicly created category and item pages via queries to my DB.

I have the queries completed and the search results page completed.

I am thinking of making a search returns page for each category. The viewable text would have a opening paragraph that would be "themed" to that category. Also page title and name would also be geared toward that "theme" sub topic.

So the question is should I create these pages and calls for all 13 categories or would the effort be worth the pay off? By the way all would be ASP pages.

TIA,

Brian

I've been thinking about doing something similar myself, but I don't know if it's worth the effort. I figure it would take about two months to see how well the idea works.

I think it would be worth the effort. Don't know how many pages are involved but you could do with some variety, title length, page size etc.

If it were me I'd put 1 cat in the root, create 12 directories for the others, hand craft the index pages and link well from dir to dir and page to page.

Is there a reason that the pages have to be asp?

Yes, I am using a "shopping cart" program. It utilizes VB scripting and the "cart" program does not work if left to .htm/.html ext.. I assume this is a VB scripting thing (?).

Thanks for the tip it does make sense. Basicaly for each queary there are 4 pages that are utilized. I was planning on keyword/contenet/theming all different returns.
