Does the Date Last modified on a page make a difference?

Contemplating reuploading all hard coded files for better SE results.

I have been contemplating this for about a day.. I run a small site (maybe around 10,000 pages) and ive noticed Google indexing my main entry page, domain.com/index.php, about every 2 days. I think this is because the page is updated quite often and i hardcode my updates. Reinforcing my belief is another site i run that is almost 100% dynamic, and the main page can change many times daily but when it comes down to it, the actual index.php is Never changed.

Im wondering people's opinions on:

-Hardcoded pages vs. dynamic pages as far as indexing goes and how often they are indexed.

-Do you think that by reuploading files it is possible to get better results?

thanks very much! I dont post much but i lurk alot and really enjoy everyone's ample base of information!

Hardcoded pages vs. dynamic pages as far as indexing goes and how often they are indexed.

Whether or not your pages are hardcoded or dynamic has no effect on rankings and how often they are indexed. All that matters is how you present the pages to the search engine robots.

Do you think that by reuploading files it is possible to get better results?

No. I think that by improving your pages, or constantly adding features, this will help in results, and will help to get your pages indexed quicker, within some search engines.
