Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: Web crawlers and dynamic content

  1. Web crawlers and dynamic content (1 messages)

    Hi,
    This must be a very old and well studied question...
    I created a site using JSP, that permits the viewing of articles that are fully stored in a database. The url for the articles is something like:
    ../article.jsp?idi=6&ida=12
    My question is, and this is the same for all dynamic content technologies (server-side scripting technologies): is there a way to permit for search engines and crawlers (Google, Yahoo...) to find and categorize these article pages?
    Thank you very much,
    Araxes Tharsis

    If you are using Apache, then use URL rewriting to create a normal directory path that you rewrite into your parameters:
    http://www.example.com/a/b/c/page.htm maps to
    http://www.example.com/page.jsp?p1=a&p2=b&p3=c
