  • Does google pick up dynamically created pages?

    Well does it? I am making a site which has many pages dynamically generated. This is the bulk of my content, so will google not index it? Will I have to make a sitemap?

    Yes it does.

    http://www.google.com/webmasters/2.html

    There is a page on Google that explains it all in more detail, but I can't find it.

    Basically, make sure your pages are correctly meta-tagged and make the <title> relevant to each page.

      It's generally held - though obviously Google won't be specific about this - that it doesn't fully spider sites which have query-string data in the URLs - it's too easy for the spider to get trapped indexing hundreds of pages which are essentially the same. Having query-string data in all your URLs is bad for Google - it probably won't prevent you being spidered at all, but it may affect how deeply and how often.

      Have you ever seen the "clean URLs" approach to making dynamic sites?

          Simple URLs for Search Engine Robots

          I also read a really good article on the topic at ala , but because they have no search feature, I can't find it
