View Full Version : PHP vs. HTML
01-25-2006, 08:01 AM
I recently was told that html is much better for search engine optimization then using php. What are your thoughts on this? PHP is a better choice for my business but wanted to hear what the community had to say.

it doesn't make a difference
you just need to rewrite urls.. then search engines will think it's html

Search engines don't care. They don't like alot of parameters on a page and they don't like session ids but .html or .php, bah! it makes no difference.
Ultimately .php files generate HTML anyway!!!!

When using php you should be very carefull to customize your titles and other meta tags for all files that have a dynamic call.
example www.domainxyz.com/view-product.php?id=5 should have a page title that corosponds with the item that has an id of 5, while www.domainxyz.com/view-product.php?id=22 must have totally a different title.
If you are a beginer php programmer and you don't have the ability to easily generate different titles for you dynamic pages, I advice using html.
