How to get your dynamic PHP website crawled better by se ?

Confused Well, I didn't knew either, but I'm reading up on this subject.

This is what I found about this allready:

Like all people know that own a php (nuke) site, it has dynamic links and not static ones this means for example that your links have characters in it like a questionmark (?), see the url of this frihost forum page it also has a ? in it.

Well because of this Search engines don't index/crawl ya site as the would and as good as if it was a .htlm static page, they mostly quiet after the see a ? or other character in your .php links, that htlm links don't use.

This makes search engines mostly only crawl / show your index page and mayby a few more but never all your pages get indexed/crawled !

How to solve this well there is my problem many people suggest many diffrent things,
sum suggest change some code, mod your site to display .htlm links while they are .php links.
But if u do this i think ur site get crawled it shows up two times and most search engines bann you then I heard !

Also I came accros this

Google Sitemaps is an experiment in web crawling. Using Sitemaps to inform and direct our crawlers, we hope to expand our coverage of the web and improve the time to inclusion in our index. By placing a Sitemap-formatted file on your webserver, you enable our crawlers to find out what pages are present and which have recently changed, and to crawl your site accordingly.

which is a better solution (I think)

I wanna do this but dunno how to with frihost as free host and php as coding language, please help me with this in here, or/and of course, post your search engine optimisation tips for php dynamic websites and forums.

In the meanwhile I also will further read up on this and try mayby sum things, and I also keep ya'll updated with the results !

And please also hollah back what technique u think is best to solve this dynamic site links problems !

Thanks allready and greetings from pacslim Wink Arrow
The search engines have no problem with .php, but with ?t=3679.

You can solve this by a mod_rewrite in your .htaccess file, but don't ask me how, this is everything I know about it.

However, if you have a lot of links, they will eventually start crawling your dynamic url's, it just takes a few more months for them to start. Wink
thanks for clearing that up also i have that sitemap working for php (nuke) with phpbb forum look here: and yes it works !
Msn and google are allready crawling more pages ! Very Happy
Yeah, Bondings is right.

Also, I just google'd up something, you should check this page out if you want to learn more about mod_write.

You can make your dynamic URLs look like real files, for instance, turn something like into
Quote: into

Wouldn't it be a static html file then?

No not really it stays the same it fakes/cloaks google and other crawlers from search engines into them thinking it's a static html page while infact it's php on a linux server, msn/hotmail does this themself see their url's they consist things like cgi-bin ... ect (lol microsoft even uses linux (apache) severs) ...

Also I'm trying diffrent seo tacticts at once and I'm trying to find the perfect mix for php(nuke) websites/forums so just wait a week or two and i will tell all succesfull ways ive found out & tested to increase pagerank and search result rankings on se's and also how to, get more an also more directed traffic/visitors at your webproject(s), so till next time fellow frihosters ...

greetings from pacslim, dont wait on me post ur suggestions and/or advise too ! Wink Arrow
just read article by jill whalen:

Today's search engines generally have no problem with dynamically generated pages. They don't scurry away as fast as they can when they see a .php or an .asp or a .cfm extension in a URL. They don't even flee when they see parameters in the URLs. Question marks and equal signs have no spider-repelling powers anymore. While I don't understand all the programming behind it, I do know for a fact that the search engines definitely index *most* dynamic-looking URLs just fine.

but: google warns (in their faq), that they don't index URLs that have "&id" in them. try "?product" then;-)
