I would think so, but not sure. I have 30 static pages optimized ect, but have 1000 product pages google doesnt know about, or never crawls because of the dynamic "? "
I can tell it never crawls them, so if I converted, which I have an opertunity to do, will it help rankings?
I would think if I have 1030 pages on my product and another website has only 50, that I may rank better. Atleast I would hope so.
Any oppinions on the matter?
In your case, I'd say you could categorize your products and link to them from these "category" pages. And also between all products within those categories...are you with me?
I have Home>links to statics(product brands)>statics linked to dynamic product pages> dyanamic page then has its own dynamic links at the top and bottom to other products of same brand name.
Oh and thank you very much for your reply!
Google is spidering dynamic urls but to an extent,if your urls are too deep buried in any directory then Googlebot find it hard to spider those pages.
Let me know how you convert dynamic url's to static ones,some server side script or something else.
Call page one something like "keyword_001.asp" or whatever. Then write a script that outputs 100 links to the first 100 products with dynamic urls. Scripting this is a lot easier than hard-coding 1000 links.
At the top of the page, create a "<-- Back ¦ Next -->" deal that will walk Googlebot to the next page in the series ("keyword_002.asp"), and so on and so on.
As I understand it, Google will take your dynamic urls (so long as they don't have more than 2 variables) but will not follow them. However, sometimes it does if their is only 1 variable.
Try to make your "product index" link unattractive to human visitors.
