View Full Version : Seo Help on Database Driven websites
12-09-2003, 01:08 PM
I have a question about SEO and how to optimize database driven pages. Obviously on a strictly .html site each page it easy to edit the title/meta tags. But what about on a site like this? http://www.rumasfruit.com (a friends site).
On the main page I understand, but if you click on a link in the categories section in the left nav the pages are not .html...they are dynamically generated I believe. How, if possible, do you customize the tags on pages such as these?
Hope I explained myself correctly...Thanks for your expertise.

Yes, you're right. Easy to add on a normal static html page.
On a database, dynamic driven site, it's much trickier. It involves utilizing the variables that are calling the page and inputting the text for the pages.
Thoroughly explaining it is a little out scope for this small area, and depends on how the site was built. Have you tried contacting the developer of the site?

We deal very well with dynamic delivery per se. So
the mere presence of a question mark in the URL doesn't throw us for a loop at all. We will crawl those pages more slowly than we do with pages without question marks in the URL. Purely because they've identified themselves as being dynamic and we certainly don't want to bring anyone's site
down because we're hitting the database too hard.
I think this would clear some points.

We actually do very well in th SE arena and we have dynamically generated pages. I will gladly give some advice on how to do that. I even wrote an article on dynamic title, keyword, and description tags. I'll see if I can locate it. Very easy stuff to do just sometimes seems overwhelming when you are starting.
