We plan to submit several keyword URLS e.g. keyword1.site.com, keyword2.site.com, etc. to the five major search engines. In this case, we are using *Apache redirect* on the server side to point the URL to a specific page which is optimized for this keyword. Each optimized page is in turn a home page portal to our entire web site.
Question1: will search engines index this URL (keyword1.site.com) if the page returned by the server has a different URL (keyword1.site.com/keyword.htm?dir="/keyword/keyword1/") ?
Question2: will search engines index complex URLs in the form:
Each of these keyword optimized pages is a homepage portal to our entire web site. Any other issues I need to be concerned about?
If you have the cgi? form value exposed in the url (if I understand what you are doing correctly), most engines won't index that. If you are using Mod_rewrite, then that seamlessly will translate the urls - the cool way to go.
