I just wanted to know from SEO perspective if we use multiple indexes on the HTML platform. Will it effect any of our SEO rankings, indexing etc.
Kindly explain the effect of using this from SEO perspective.
Looking forward to your feedback. Incase there is any relevant thread, then please post its URL as well.
Thanks in advance!
Presently I'm having a site in which I'm having 7 directories:
Under every directory I'm having an index page:
For linking to the above mentioned INDEX PAGES, I can do it by specifying any of the following URLs:
I want to know that if I use the first option [without index.html] then how it will be beneficial for my Search Engine Campaign.
N.B: I've seen a couple of websites and forums linking to their directories using the folder name only without giving the "index" for example:
Well, in this website the link to Search Engine forum is also like this:
I'm more than thankful to you for giving time to clarify my point. Thanks a lot!

[edit reason] URL's unlinked [/edit]
"ht*p://www.mysite.com/widgets1/" is the way to go. This path differentiates the various index files so no worries there.
The above option is cleaner, and allows you later, if you like, to change the extension, since ".html" was never specified.
As always, when in doubt, hard code the URI's (as opposed to relative paths).
Additionally it would be great if you could tell me the benefit from SEO point of view also, since I'm definately gonna implement this strategy. So am curious to know a bit more from you!
