I noticed that google index page by file name too. If I type SEO book the third rank in google have the url www.thewritemarket.com/seo-book.shtml
google already have index some of my web pages. I am redesigning my web site and I am using coldfusion so the extension name will change from .html to .cfm. What I have to do so google will index my new pages?

If you're index page is going to be different then you may have to get new backlinks to the index. Once you have that, google will spider all of your new pages and will index them as long as you have links from the index pointing to the new pages.
But, If you have backlinks coming into www.yoursite.com then google will give the backlink credit to the defualt page, though it may take up to two updates for the pr to propogate to the new index page and .
If you have to change the file names, just go a head and do it and start getting links to your index page as usuall. It will take a while but it will sort itself out.

My index page will change in content, title, metatag, description and link but the domain will be the same. Also, I will change file name and extension from HTML to CFM. I am doing this because I have bad rank in google organic search terms and I want to improve it.
How long it would take the search engine to update my pages?
Thanks so much

You're welcome, but I wonder if the effort is really worth it, changing your filenames will only help a tiny amount , you're going to be losing more rankings before you gain anything from this. If you're not getting any rankings right now then I would say go for it if you really want to change the filenames.
If will take atleast two updates, it can be less but you won't see any pr to the first level pages for a quite a while, and it takes another update to get PR into the lower pages too.

Thanks so much
Ok I will not change the file name but anyway if I use coldfusion the extension will change from www.xxxxxxx.com/roma.html to www.xxxxxxxxx.com/roma.cfm will I lose rank?
I have good rank in google already because I use backlinks and PPC but I want to improve the organic search term. I do not have good position due to the poor coding and content. This is the reason that I am redesigning my web site. How do I know which page of my web site google index so I wont change those file names.

Yes you will lose rank because it is a completely new filename. Your pages that are ranking now will then lose their PR because your site isn't linking to them anymore as they won't exhist.
You'll also have to change the page locations on your ppc efforts or they will end up going to a page that is not there.

Not really sure what you're asking here, to see if a page is in google, get the google toolbar and click on cached version when you are on the page that you want to check. Let me know if you have any more questions.

It would depend on your pagerank of the index page. Please keep in mind that if you change the index page extension index.html -> index.cfm you are starting completely over!
It may take a few days to a few weeks to cache the index again, then another few days to a few weeks to cache the pages that the index page links to and so on. That is what you're up against.
can you post your domain or private message it to me and I will have a look at your backlinks.
