I’ve been trying to get my site spidered by google for some time now, and I think I’ve narrowed down the problem to a session ID being generated for my pages.
While in the process of moving my site to DreamHost, I was using one of the *.dreamhost.com domains (while they were still usable) for a short period of time. Almost instantly, my site was listed on Google.
But now I’m back to *.com, and my site is once again not spidered by google.
As I mentioned earlier, I’ve more or less narrowed this down to a problem with Session IDs. From what I understand, there’s a flag in php.ini that can be used to disable session IDs altogether.
Reading an earlier thread, I realize that editing the php.ini for a specific user isn’t an option, as it would affect all users on the same server.
So that brings me to my question – are there any technical difference between the *.dreamhost.com and *.com domains? As far as I can tell, everything is being handled by “wasabi,” which would lead me to believe they’re running from the same server. Are the database servers different?
My site was spidered with no issues whatsoever at *.dreamhost.com, but no longer.
