    Search Engine

    Hi, Last year I bought a book about how to design a database driven website
    from sitepoint.com.

    My problem is I have noticed, from one of my site www.thirdworldmedia.com/shop/ which is database driven it's not getting listed on google search yet the other section under www.thirdworldmedia.com are listed, does it mean that database driven website cannot be listed on search engines?

    Please advice since I would like my database driven site www.thirdworldmedia.com/shop/ to be listed on google search engine thanks
    again.

    How do I enable a database driven website to be listed on google search engine?

    Kind Regards

    Well, to start, make a link from the main site to the store. Get some backlinks, and then you should get into google. You could also try submitting the subdirectory directly to google.

    As for it being database driven, that doesn't affect it very much, but it may help you if you used "search engine friendly URLs". There's an article on SitePoint about them.

    It won't directly solve your problem, but I believe it will help with the listings. If anything, it makes the site more user friendly.

    I'm moving the thread to the search engine forums as you may get better advice there.
