Re: How do robots see PHP/ASP pages?

>Hi again everyone. I've really enjoyed the tips, tricks, and critiques from this site. I have a question regarding PHP/ASP Database-driven webpages. Will the robots/crawlers perceive the page as a final html document (with no scripting) or will they see the page with VBScript (or whatever)? In other words, if I have a completely database driven site (which I am working on to replace the one currently up) will the robots be able to index pages beyond the home page? If not, any cheats/work arounds so that they will be able to do so?

See the thread about bots and SSI I posted to earlier. I think they will pick up the pages as long as you don't have a '?' in the url. Check out our site for an example of a completely PHP/MySQL generated site.
