    Does web pages with an extension of .shtm or .shtml have any problems with getting indexed by search engines ?

    Where do I place the title of an shtml page ? Do I put it right in the shtml file ?

    Thanks !

    SHTML is structered like an html page, just use <title>YourTitle</title> tags. It is also indexed the same.

    The reason for the shtml is that the server reads that extension and knows it needs to look for server includes to process. The output to the browser is the same.

    A page with a .SHTML extension just means it uses SSI. It's no different from any other HTML page. Just a file name change.

    Never had any trouble getting an SSI page indexed.

    Caesar, yes. Just change the file name with an ending .shtml. All others are same as .htm or html

    You could use .htaccess to let the server parse the SHTM/SHTML as HTM/HTML
    On my site, there is no SHTML or SHTM, all are HTML/HTM but still use SSI calls

    Can you post the code here ?
    I remember that htaccess can do the thing you mentioned but I forgot the coding.
