FP Includes, Search Engines & Updating

I wanted to create an includes file for our advertiser sections so they can be easily changed and am having some challenges.

-After initiating the include I publish the include file & the page(s). When I make a change to the include file and publish, it's not updating the online page. It will only update when I republish the page...almost like a DWT page.

- If I get this working correctly, will these links still be crawled by the search engines?

Thanks so much!

Yes! If you merely update the 'include' offline and publish it, the change will not affect the pages with the 'include'. Your options are either a) make the changes offline and publish the entire site, b0 make the changes offline, publish the 'include' then go live on your site and use the "recalculate Hyperlinks" tool, or c) make the include update live and either 1) copy the changes to your computer so you can update your local web, or 2) publish from your root web to your computer.

If you want to avoid this, you could use .asp includes if you have the capability, php includes, or shtml.

Great! Thank you so much..EXACTLY what I needed to know.

Will they still get crawled the same way by the search engines?

Yes - since these includes are handled either by the server or by the WYSIWYG editor, the links will be crawled by the search engines
