We have two sites, one uses .php as extension and other uses .igw (iGesWeb) as extension.
Since the iGesWeb site is build with a java CMS we used a not known extension to filter those requests an produce the page.
Reviewing logs we see that Yahoo visits the iGesWeb site frecuently but only 2 pages are indexed. Why?
After many posts in the site explorer a Yahoo employee suggests:
"The other two sitemaps are running into problems due to the '.igw' extension. Can you configure your CMS to output to one of the standard file extensions? "
I totaly dissagree with that! Yahoo should honor Content-Type header.
It says "text/html;charset=UTF-8" and that should be enough. Why do I have to use a "standard" extension if no standar extension represents the kind of processing our CMS does?
We have no problems with any other search engines and changing extension will affect atleast 5.000 pages.
