    PHP MYSQL and listing in google

    Hiello everyone, I new to this forum. I have a question that I am unable to find an answer for anywhere online.

    On our website potomacelectric.com we have a mysql database with parts that are available for sale, website uses PHP for searching of databese . Users can search for parts via multiple options. Also browse by clicking first letter of the manufacturers name. I was told that google would be able to use these links to cache all pages A..... to Z and this way to allow anyone on google to see what parts we have for sale. [/url] http://www.potomacelectric.com/repairs/parts.php [url] So far google have not cached any pages even though it alredy cached other pages created at the same time. It also cached forum which is also php.

    I am looking for someone who can guide me in the right direction on what is not done right and help me get the google to cache all the pages. We will pay a reasonable fee for this help.

    Thanks alot in advance

    Mark

    Welcome to the forum, mudilik.

    Are you using query strings in your URLs? If so, you will probably fare better with the search engines by using search engine friendly URLs.

    That article is from August 10th 2001. Google was just a couple of years old at that time, I'm sure things have changed since then.

    Yeah, google now uses the querystring to index the pages too.

    Are you doing any kind of header redirect on that page? If so, that could be why its not being cached.

    I googled some of your OEM part numbers , and mostly got a hit first page but for this http://www.potomacelectric.com/repairs/typelist.htm , so now that you are using GET (and that would have been your biggest problem if you were previously using post) take that list page and add links in there to your a-z list , google will do the rest.

    really I think those pages will get indexed eventually anyway.

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    your pages might get index all, but your ranking at google and other search engines will still be low. You should use some headers and meta tags for robots to start, that will help google to spider your site !
