    Question Mobile indexing and dynamic titles...


    Hi!!!

    Im trying to do SEO for a website in order to learn how to.
    and so far I have two questions:

    1) For the Google search engine, is better to read static titles and descriptions or dynamics ones (as php variables stored in my DB). I really don't understand if the crawling system see the page as the client do (I mean as the html source code show in the browser) or the files php in the server...

    2) I have two slightly different versions of my website (mobile and web) both of them have the same content but different functionalities. I have an script that redirect a person who use an iPhone or iPad to the mobile website.

    I would like to know how Google knows which one is the mobile version in order to index it in the correct mobile index and do not take it as duplicated content.
    Is there any important meta tag or doctype that I need to include for mobiles??

    Thank you very much!!!!!!!

    1) Neither Google nor anyone/anything else can get to the raw php code. EVERYONE (including bots) will see only the rendered HTML code

    2) What sort of script? PHP or Javascript?

    Google can read a bit of Javascript, but they don't like to do it to benefit webmasters. In other words: chances are slim that Google will present the right page to the right user. Then again: it looks like the URL is the same for both, so your script should take care of things just fine No advantage for "mobile" search engines though... alas.

    -------edit: Have you considered putting up a 'mobile' subdomain of your site?
