View Full Version : PR and PHP
08-01-2004, 09:27 AM
Does anyone out there know why the internal pages of many PHP sites have a PR0 while the index page can have a high PR? Is something stopping the PR from flowing to the internal pages?
Dynamic URL's seems to find it hard to pass PR. If the URLs are static there should be no problem.

That is why God created the .htaccess file and the 301 Redirect.

someone posted on this topic before, that a single query param was OK, but more wasn't.. So, I'm wondering if http://www.blahbla.com?this=that&that=theother could just be rewritten as a single query param, and parsed by the program, ge. ?queries=thisEQthatANDthatEQtheother;
These are preset queries, though, so I've been writing a little perl script to just do the queries and write the results as .html pages. The problem is I'll lose the nice little click - sort functionality; I'm also not experienced enough to know what the query frequency is that will slow down the server. I'm figuring we don't have a high enough traffic site for it to matter, yet, and when we do, it'll just be a matter of bumping up the hosting platform. We get ~ 8k visits a month, and a reasonably small db.

why would you use a pearl script when Mod Rewrite (http://mod-rewrite.com) exists?

I mask my .php pages with .html or .htm.
Here are two easy step by step guides that can show you how to use the masking technique.

No one really *knows* how much or how little multiple levels on dynamic URLs do or don't slow down searchbots. But as SEO Guy says, with mod_rewrite available, why have _any_??
I have probably said this 537,329 times before, but I guess it bears another repeating: whyever take ANY *needless* risk--however small?

Thanks, I'm checking it out. Its a lot of work; my perl solution will work much quicker (development time, that is) so. You will note its doing something different: I'm not rewriting on the fly, I'm just pregenerating the dynamic pages; no server directives required. Loading time is an issue as well, and putting the server through those hoops will eat the clock, I'd bet.
