    Which is good - HTML /ASP /PHP pages for Google ?


    Hello,

    For a multiple simple pages ( without any database handling) of websites ( say approx 50 pages) it is quite simple and convientient to use the header and footer include files in ASP & PHP .

    But from the point of view SEO whether Google will give importance to these ASP/php pages or it would be better to go for 50 html pages.

    Regarding updation although it will be painful to update all 50 HTML pages everytime but I have read it somewhere d that it is still much better apprach than using the include function based files in ASP/PHP.

    So in short which is better HTML pages / ASP pages / PHP pages

    Any comment ...

    Regards,
    Ajay Jain

    Page type doesn't make a difference.

    However, if you do eventually make some dynamic pages, try to keep the querystrings down to 1 item, or if possible, use a mod_rewrite system for PHP or manipulate things via Application_BeginRequest in .NET to make them appear static.

    So in short which is better HTML pages / ASP pages / PHP pages
    I often read this question on SEO forums and I think that there is a bit of general confusion about what a server-side language is and how it works.

    So:

    PHP or ASP pages don't exist (once the pages have been sent to the user/spider).

    1) PHP and ASP code exist only on the server.

    2) The server processes PHP/ASP code and produces a simple HTML file.

    3) The HTML file is sent to the user/spider.

    Users/spiders don't receive PHP or ASP at all. They receive just plain HTML.

    So the question should be modified to "which is better HTML pages / HTML pages / HTML pages" and the answer is "HTML pages". ;)
