1)is it less benificial to my link development (in terms of PR) to have these four closely grouped links than a single link would be?
2)after their 15 minutes of fame on the front page, the news stories are archived into static html pages. would i be better setting a delay on the newsfeed so it requests yesterdays stories, and then have these linked back to the static pages? then i would have links to four different pages of my site, rather than 4 links to index.php.
the type of news we cover is rarely abosolutely time critical and delaying the newsfeed until the stories have been archived shouldnt be a problem.
As for dealing with the dynamic stories and the static pages I'd write the static documents immediately as well as keep them in the db. Once thier 15 minutes are up - trash them from the db and leave the static pages. Use the static pages for your news feeds.
i would love to be able to generate static pages on request but i didnt write the db (im just getting started with php/mysql). the static pages are generated via a cron running every night.
im gonna try to get the feed to show a stories from the past few days, 3 at a time at random and link them back to static pages.
