    Emgine Indexing of an ASP.NET site

    Just a quick one concerning options available in order for search Engines to index our site. Built using asp.net, what is the best solution. It will be too large to manually submit each page, and since it will be using the '?' I here the search engines will flee quickly.


    Thanks for your help,

    Tad

    Yes, using a query string can cause some search engines to not index your site. It also makes ugly URLs for the end user who may want to sent a link to someone etc.

    There are some methods to make search engine friendly URLs with asp, the easiest way is with custom 404 redirects.

    Check out the bottom of this page:

    They have a good collection of methods.
