It doesn't matter you save yr pages as .php or .html if those are static pages I always save them as .php for its easy for add parted later. but if your page "content"is 100% dynamic then it will be a bit of a problem it wont be easy for spiders to crawl through yr site.
I recommend PHP over HTML
I agree with all above, people, web developers and indeed yourself, will find it very beneficial if you start coding in PHP. But for great web site design and easy content management and a more dynamic viewer interface, Content Management Systems are the way to go.
It will check content in you html or php file ...
Actually php files are useful for updating the contents....But making these php files fully dynamic would result in problems for the spiders to crawl the pages smoothly.....
Leave the files with their .php extension but use mod_rewite to hide them.
a. u can insert php code in html file, just add an apache handler to your hosting settings
b. crawling system will rely only on links. although you have very dynamic urls, but if all of them well linked, i think IT'S FINE.
c. couple of SEO geeks, said that no matter u use php, htm, html, cfm etc etc crawler wont know the language u used, what crawler seek is only HTML/XHTML format.
so, only the output html does matter here.
d. i prefer to use html.
is there anyone here...
know a tutorial for url rewriting...
i think it will be a big help for SEO
Yeah I tkhink it's a good idea to invoke url redirection here as a topic.
So could every one tell us his experience about that ??
