View Full Version : .php or sub directory pages for spider robots

11-19-2006, 08:13 PM
What is best to SEO my site's pages for spiders robots etc.
- a) save pages as a sub directory? or
- b) use .php?

Please, for reference see my site link @ Customer Website Review
"My 1st site" - comments... Then click on any link under "Menu". (all these pages are .php and done by a friend)

My basic question is does it matter for this type of website which wayI do it?

Actually, the biggies in the business recommend html pages over php pages for the se's.

I'm not sure what you mean by sub-directory v php tho - and don't expect us to go look at another thread to find your site link.

But since I was just on your site - your seo has a lot of necessary work.

What matters the most right now - your structure and lay out and titles and headlines that are now missing.

I was told NOT to put any links to any of my sites in these posts. To post them at the "Review Website" page, so thats what I did.

Can I post a link in these Q&A's if it relates to the supject?

Yes. If I need to see the site to answer the question, it needs to be in the post.

Here it is: http://www.freegamegolf.com

If you go to the "Menu" (left side of page) and click on any of the articles you will see that these are all saved as ".php". My questions are;

1) is this any better in terms of SEO than just saving as another page on my web site?

2) is this an example of a "site map"?

Please, understand that this site was built by someone else. I would ask him but, he has fallen ill and won't be able to communicate with me for some time.

Thanks for your help,

It shouldn't make any difference the way they are done.

Are you a Voda Host customer?

Thanks Bethers, that's what I needed to know.

I'll keep it simple for now. And when I need to know .php or site mapping, I'll get back with you and LadyEye.

Thanks again,

Site Map. Php has nothing to do with facilitating you with SE. Further more, DYNAMIC php pages (getting content from BBs) are the worst thing one can have as long as SE are involved. On the other hand, sites of this kind, usually have lots of other (static) content to gain good SE ranking.
