Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I recently changed my site to php pages. Instead of using html pages, i changed all to php related pages such as [mysite.com...] But instead i am getting less visitors from SE because all these pages are not indexed. I was wondering whether SE will index these pages in time because i lose a lot of traffic comparing all the html pages that i use. All my html pages are not listed in SE anymore. I also heard that SE will not index session ids but i am not sure whether all these? related pages will be indexed. Therefore i need some advice on this case. PHP is really great but is it better to change back to plain html pages because without visitors, my site will be nothing worthy even though i think i did a good job in my site. :>
Thanks for any advice.
I do not know exactly what you mean here. Because i am running a directory website and i have like 30 different categories. So my pages will be like /index.php?action=displaycat&catid=1 and catid=2 and so on. PhP really makes this easier to run directory website. Therefore i do not understand what you mean by seperating the index page. Any other advice than this?
I have a site that is made up of one big index.php file. The user goes to index.php and gets the main page. If they click on a link, they go to site.com/page-1, or site.com/keywordterm
The mod_rewrite page looks for page-(.*) and sends it to index.php?id=$1 instead (internally -- the user never knows this).
This is just one way to do it, there are many.
One more thing, make sure your categories and products are properly linked, so that a spider can effectively reach and index all your products.
