Is .aspx website good for SEO or not?

 6:24 pm on Jan 31, 2009 (gmt 0)

my web developer just finished my site, which is .aspx. i just realized .aspx is not search engine friendly and now i am concerned about that. Do you think i should go ahead and do SEO of my existing site, or should i start over building .html site?

There are plenty of excellent and high ranking sites out there built on various versions of MS/.NET, including a lot of very large sites.

Regardless of platform you will want to make sure that you you have one canonical version of your site, and never serve the same content at more than one URL (a common issue with .NET sites).

It's also a very good idea to avoid showing file extensions, so that if you do change platforms later you won't need to deal with lots of redirects.

So in other words this is good:

Right caveman. The page extension doesnt make much difference at all, but using a directory structure is a lot easier for future changes.

The type of technology that builds the pages is mostly irrelevant.

It's the HTML that is output that is the key.
