I have a Pagerank question.
Our dynamic based websites structure is as follows:
home page --> category --> subcategory --> results --> products.
The home page has a PR5, results is PR2 and products PR1. However, the category and subcategory pages a have PR0. Are we being penalized for something? The category and subcategory pages rank well in search results, but could be better. Would changing the url from dynamic to static with a mod_rewrite help with the Pagerank? Or does Google not like subcategory pages.
Anything that you can do to bring the content closer to the top will help, you're 5 levels down now. PR 5 is good for the index and it will drop off as you go deeper, so look for ways to bring the levels up.
You are also correct that the sessions id's can really be a killer for Google, so the rewrite is a must.
