Excerpt: Classic ASP Myths Debunked

Here is an excerpt from the new DMXReady ebook, Classic ASP Myths Debunked:

classic-asp-myths
"Myth #5: Google and other search engines can't crawl web pages ending in .asp

Again, totally untrue. Google itself says that it can crawl any type of web page as long as it is visible in a web browser. It also tells you exactly how to test your pages - if it passes the test, Google will crawl it:

Also related is the fear that Google can't crawl dynamic URLs, those long addresses that use symbols like "?" and "=" and "&" to specify different parameters. However this myth was also busted by Google itself:

That being said, there are some reasons why you might want to have "friendly URLs" - namely, so that your website visitors can better identify and remember your web page.

One way you can create friendly URLs is by using the web.config file on your Windows server....

If you are using DMXReady v2.0 applications, you can create friendly URLs even faster and easier within the settings of each page. All you have to do is enter your unique URL in the space provided, and the application will automatically convert the page name...

Bottom line: no matter what approach you take to displaying your page URLs, Googlebots will have no problem crawling your pages - at least not due to your URL structure."
