does it matter?

I have serious worries that FAST doesn't like a site, who's index page has the extension .php instead of .html. Can anyone confirm this is the case? If it is, then our administrator will make .php files look like .html, but apparently it slows things down. True, false?

>FAST doesn't like a site

Backus it depends on what you actually mean by "doesn't like". They will index files with a .php extension.
Look at this [alltheweb.com] search, SERP #100.
I would rewrite "?" in the example though.

Not sure wether a .php has any effect on rankings.
Anyone?

At a quick glance I found some good ranking pages with .php. Backus, do you have such pages that rank significantly better in Google than Fast?

Just asking what your suspicion is based upon. I compared a few php files` ranking between Google and Fast, saw no evidence so far for .php pages systematically ranking worse in Fast.

I think you mis-understand... If I have a site, which has an index.html page, and a site which is index.php, is there a possibility that the index.php site will not be accepted?

Backus, all I can say is: Fast indexes files with php extension. I canīt imagine it being a problem if the index page is a php file. To make sure you could try asking Fast. They are reported to be very responsive...

It would be very hypocritical to say the least...
