Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Problem is, these menu options are not picked up by the spiders. (using Bretts tool here to test it [searchengineworld.com...] )
Can someone tell me what we could do to correct this?
Any other advice how we can make php on our site more search engine friendly?
Should be just as friendly as .htm or .html
Like said above, you only run into problems when your url's have more than one query string.
I have many .php pages getting indexed just fine.
In fact, you can do a lot lot worse than look at the way this site is set up wrt its naviagtion.
Then of course there is apache rewrite if you wish to get rid of those querystrings
Just a thought for you
The term I used as future proof etc is not a recognised one :). I meant a principle. If you see from Bretts article it would be easy to add another category at almost any level. It may involve a lot of work grouping your site in this way but if you have clear links up and down the chain all your pages should be found and crawled etc.
If you have monster long list of DB entries you may need to classify them with a partent/child arrangement so that they can be ordered logically when spat out of the DB depending on a query string paramater. Have a look at "phphoo" for a nice example of this categorising process.
HTH a little
