View Full Version : Google Indexing
03-16-2004, 10:47 PM
I have a website www.matcos.com, you will see that there a links on the side
from these links the title keyword and description of the page are dynamically generated.
My question is will google index these pages becuase it did index these pages and has now dropped these again.
My concern is if a url contains any pass parameters does google drop it from indexing.
Please comment on this so that i can make my promotion strategy.

Google will index these pages, we have a product catalogue which does exactly the same. Most of the product pages get indexed.
Your pages above are also indexed, just have no PR
Im not sure why google does not offer PR on some pages, I have lost a PR5 on one of my key pages, however the page ranks well !!!!

I suggest utilizing the mod_rewrite engine of appache to rewrite the URL's anyways that way you can get filenames such as domain.com/kw1+kw2/ also Google often will spider and index paramed URL's however it is a tougher go and they dont like them as much so its harder to detemine PR for them

Definitely mod_rewrite is the way to go... as a reference, if you made a mod_rewrite expression that looked something like this: RewriteRule product-(.*) product\.php3\?type=$1 [L] that would be all you need.
Just a not though, even though the (.*) will most likely work, what it means is "the next characters (no matter how many) are valid". It doesn't care whether they're alpha numeric, numberic, or even absent. If you know that there's always going to be 2 characters (like in your examples) then you can usea more specific stop-text rule.
Also, I use the \ to escape my . and ?... this seems to be optional, and lots of people don't do it, but i've never had a problem with it either way.
Hopefully that will help.
