Optimizing Dynamic Pages - Part I

Written by Dale Goetsch

Continued from page 1

What does a robot do? Search engine robots are very simple creatures. They can "read" text, and they can follow links. That's it. Robots cannot view a Flash movie, they cannot fill in a form, and they cannot click a "submit" button. What that means is that no matter how much great information your web page may contain, if a visitor has to select it from a list, or type a password, or submit a form full of information to get there, no robot will ever visit that page.

The origins of dynamic pages Most dynamic web pages are generated in response to queries run against databases. Behind your widget website there is a large database of widgets. When a visitor comes to your site and looks for left-handed blue widgets, it is this database that suppliesrepparttar response. The database provides that information to repparttar 128000 visitor. Typicallyrepparttar 128001 visitor checks a box or selects from a list or even types text ontorepparttar 128002 page and presses a "submit" button. Once she jumps through those hoops, your visitor gets her page full of left-handed blue widgets.

I can't see you Unfortunately, when a search engine robot visits this page, it cannot check that box, it cannot select from that list, and it cannot clickrepparttar 128003 "submit" button. Put simply,repparttar 128004 robot cannot get to page of widgets. Ifrepparttar 128005 robot can't get there,repparttar 128006 page will not be included inrepparttar 128007 search engine database. If it's not inrepparttar 128008 database, searchers cannot find it.

So how do you get there? So how do we attract other visitors to our dynamic page of left-handed blue widgets? There must be some way to get there without having to click on that "submit" button.

Next month we will look at several ways to get search engine robots to visit dynamic web pages. Stay tuned.
