PHP coding: Mod Rewrite and Search Engine Ranking

Matt B

Recommended Posts



The reason I decided to use .htaccess ModReWrite was so that Search Engines would crawl the site properly (Index All Pages). And also make URL's more friendly for people wanting to remember them.


A web site designer told me today that with PHP, as I am using a single page as a template page for all product pages, search engines will only find and hence only rank one page! I thought that all web pages were designed using the PHP and then Search Engines crawl all pages that result from the PHP code. Can anyone tell me (preferably from experience) whether all the web sites pages will be ranked by the likes of Google, Bing, Yahoo...etc..


I want to maintain (if not better) the ranking of the current HTML web site online at the moment.


Look forward to your replies,

The PHP web site is under-construction so it is not online.


The HTML web site that is online ranks very high in all search engines. I do not want to use a trial-and-error approach to this...if the site will lose ranking I need to know before it goes LIVE. Someone (maybe not yourself) must have experience with PHP and Search Engine Rankings in terms of using Template Files!?!


I need to know what will happen before it goes LIVE!
