Dynamic Links and Google
(Not sure where to post this?!)
I have heard that if you don't set up URL's and hyperlinks - especially "dynamic" hyperlinks - properly that it can make Google mad?!
For example, I believe that if you are building an e-comemrce catalog, you have to take certain precautions to be sure that Google doesn't try to index your entire product catalog!!
I don't have anything like that, but am wondering if the following could cause some issues...
<li><a href="#here">Make a Comment</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo "/articles/join-article-thread/$slug/$sessUsername"; ?>">Follow Conversation</a></li>
<li><a href="">Rate this Article</a></li>
The purpose of the 2nd link above is to go to a page where a User can subscribe to an article thread.
The more I think about it, I have no clue how Google's spiders crawl such a link??
I mean that link is "dynamic", and unless you are logged in (e.g. "DoubleDee") and on a particular Article Page (e.g. "Top 10 News Events for 2012") then I don't see how a spider would know what to do?!
Can someone help me understand this more?
I have spent an *enormous* amount of time converting all of my Ugly URL's/Hyperlinks to Pretty URL's/Hyperlinks, and I would be pretty frustrated if what I have isn't what Google is looking for...
