Hi Divya,

Look at implementing SEO best practices on the template underlying the dynamic pages. This would mean that all the dynamic pages running this template will carry the SEO elements.

also, identify how the content is being pulled into the dynamic pages. i.e. what technology is being used? Then see if that technology is search engine friendly.

Hope that helps.

Generally speaking, the search engines don't care what kind of server-side code your site is written in - whether it's static HTML, PHP or .NET, the crawler doesn't care, as long as the site serves up something that it can crawl.

Most errors that a dynamic site can produce can also be generated on a static HTML site - you just have to go a bit out of your way to do it.

Generally speaking, the SEO is the same, after you have solved any technical challenges.

The big things to keep in mind when optimizing a dynamic site are:

1. Duplicate content - try to make sure your content can only be accessed by one URL

2. Crawlability - try to make sure the site can be crawled OK by spiders (so avoid frames, crazy redirects or uncrawlable menus)

3. Unhelpful URLs - try to avoid URL strings that are super long and are hard for people to decipher - a good rule of thumb is the question: "could a smart person understand what this URL does?"

Hope that helps!

as dertyfern said you can use mod_rewrite module. It will allow you to convert dynamic urls to search engine friendly.

Here is a guide:

I am presently doing SEO of dynamic websites in php.

Our websites contain dynamic url with upto 5 parameters and it is surprise that all the urls are indexed by google.

No need to rewrite the dynamic urls, just include these url in page links and site map.

more parameter in url takes more time to be indexed.
