How can I tell if a site is Dynamic? I know that the information on the a dynamic site changes and is pulled from a database, but if I were to go to a site now, how would I be able to know this?

To over come dynamic sites doorway pages need to be created correct? Can anyone show me how to create a doorway page?

Are redirects used on dynamic sites?

I know, such a newbie question but I can't seem to get this down.

Hi beasscr,

Some easy ways to spot common dynamic Web sites are from

A) file extension other than htm or html (.asp .jsp .cgi ect)
B) special caracters in URL such as ? % $ @ ect

Here is a quote from the glossary

It used to be easy to spot one of these pages, but with most systems now allowing dynamic content from any page at any time, you just never know.

>>To over come dynamic sites doorway pages need to be created correct?

More precisely static pages must be created. For an accurate description of a doorway page feel free to use the glossary in the top menu.

A good place to get informations on how to create good pages here.

Redirection can be dangerous.

Welcome to the board beasscr. Nice response Mac.

You can also just "look" at the page to find clues that it is dynamic.
Notice things like content change from day-to-day or any display differences between browsers?

Lastly, little known is the difference in HTTP headers from dynamic to static pages. SE's can also spot that. You can determine if a page is dynamic most of the time just from the headers alone.
