Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Google & Co on dynamic content
You folks might do some testing on a development server to make sure it still works, and if it does you might turn it on for Planet to see if google then does a better job.
For the rest of you, the solution was very simple: It just uses a simple algorithm to mangle the URL with a "?" into a simple string, then when the request processor processes a hit the URL is unmangled back to the original URL.
No client code needs to be written. No index.vuh files need to be written. URLs just need to be filtered through the mangle proc rather than placed directly in templates.
But since google supposedly doesn't care about "?" this shouldn't be necessary ...
Also, Brian ... you guys should try to analyze what google's finding and not finding on Planet. It may be that now that you have a dynamic content system you're changing content more frequently, and that this causes Google to miss content because it expires before the site's reindexed. Or that archive links are broken or something along those lines.
