What's wrong with the dynamic content URLs?


Just curious.


NOTE: As of Oct 2006, I'm not as active in this forum as I used to be, but I still work with osC quite a bit.

If you have a question about any of my posts here, your best bet is to contact me though either Email or PM in my profile, and I'll be happy to help.

Search engine friendly pages are no longer necessary in the majority(99%) of applications.


Search engines such as google have no problem spidering sites with php?= therefore, it is unnecessary. If you wish to promote your pages further look into contributions:http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...ions,207/page,6

[session Id Killer(More Important Than Almost Anything For Page Ranking)]


The oscommerce team has recently employed a spider.txt file which ideally should identify each unique spider albeit if your list is updated in a consistent manner.


I am unconvinced of its merit simply because the ip addresses and unique identifiers of each spider/bot will complicate this solution ad infinitum(no offense to anyone). I still thing session id is unnecessary until a unique action (unable to be performed by a spider/bot) is employed.


This issue is as important if not more important than some of the issues being addressed currently[themes(site customization can be performed with an adicum of effort), etc.]


The ranking issue is wholly under addressed considering the implications involved.


After all, A beautiful well constructed completely operational site is completely worthless if no one can find it
