    Index individual product pages


    Hi,
    Could anyone help me get some dynamic pages indexed by Google.
    Msn has indexed 2100 pages but G only sees 580
    Here are examples

    mydomain/products.php?cat=132 (indexed)

    mydomain/proddetail.php?prod=TAPC010G&cat=132 (not indexed)

    Thanks for any help

    I would really look into mod_rewrite to change the product ID into something more descriptive. Then, so long as you have enough links coming in, and the information isn't overly duplicated, you should get in.

    Mod_rewrite is a good option so long as the extra server overhead isn't a problem for you. As for those dynamic URLs, Google will have no problem indexing them. I see Google indexing dynamic pages with up to 4 variables. They can crawl thm just fine, but it does seem to take longer, and they do seem to be crawled less often.

    Problem is that the site is slow loading and if you rewrite the url it will slow it down a little bit more and that will just take it over the edge to the point of unacceptable loading time.
