Php or html?

design

#1

Guys i use PHP on my website to display products from a MYSQL database. I use mod re-write to make the URL more search engine friendly… Is there any difference between say

http://www.worktopmagic.co.uk/omega-19/Strass-Noir.php

and

http://www.worktopmagic.co.uk/omega-19/Strass-Noir.html

would .html look better for search engines as it look static?

Thanks,

Darren.

Not at all. It used to matter years ago, but search engines can navigate even the most obscured frameworks these days. And your PHP pages are rendered in lovely XHTML anyway. Awesome looking site btw.

Thanks, My first attempt at site design with Photoshop…

is it even worth using mod-write on urls like “profile.php?id=4” will google index those pages as well as a static looking page?

Google will index everything there without a problem. As a matter of fact it will index everything it can access so if there are folders you don’t want it sniffing through implement a robots.txt file.

Spending precious time and pondering over things like these can only mean you have much to learn.

It’s ok either way, just go ahead and give your site some real boost: content and backlinks.
