My website home page has a .shtml extension. is this any cause for concern when it comes to ranking the home page in the major search engines? Do they look "down upon" pages that have a .shtml extension? Should I try and get this switched to .html? Thanks, I look forward to your replies.
I always see the request come down as
[yourdomain.com...] (which is what I submit)
In the log files its "GET /"
How will the engine know if its index.shtml or index.php?
Does this mean I am better off not submitting my site if the default page is dynamic?
Not that it matters, my server parses .html files for SSI but I've preffered to call them shtml
Root and directory indexes aside, you still have to consider your standard files too.
