let say a link will open a new window

http://www.mypage.php?gender=male&id=christiano+ronaldo

 

and i rewrite url in .htaccess to

http://www.mypage.php/male/christiano-ronaldo

 

but the still the first one will be used as an URL when opening a new pop up window.

 

what i exactly try to do is to get both way crawled by the spider  :P

 

my question is:

- Which one will be indexed by google crawler?? the first one or both or the second one??

- Is it legal to do this?

 

thx in advanced

Well it's "legal" as in you aren't breaking any laws, but this is considered bad practice and even a form of "black hat" SEO, depending on intentions. 

 

At best, the intention is that you're retarded and can't code properly, and Google and other search engines frown on this sort of thing, and it will hurt your SEO ranking. 

 

At worst, many of the search engines will actually black list you if they find out you are doing this on purpose to gain ranking and visibility. 

 

If you want to have multiple ways to point to the same content, include in your .htaccess a permanent redirect flag.  This will let the search spiders know that you aren't trying to be shady.  And this will cause only one of them to show up in search results.

 

But if you are trying to get the same content to show up twice in search results...that's a good way to hurt your SEO ranking and get black listed.

That made my day.

 

In regards to the question, out of curiosity what is the purpose behind you wanting to develop it that way?  Maybe what you are trying to do is go about a specific issue the wrong way, perhaps we can point you in the right direction.
