View Full Version : Web spiders, search engines, and WC messages

Is there a separate HTML index of the message forum messages? I know that the messages themselves are just HTML... thus, if there isn't one already, it would be really nice if there was a straight HTML link (even hidden) between the frontpage, a bare bones HTML index, and the messages themselves. That way all those spider-driven search engines out there (which can't follow the CGI like us humans can) have a much better chance of finding useful information in the message forums, which would in turn massively promote the site... in theory...

Scott, is such a thing already in existence and if so, tell us about it? http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Yes, all of the message forums are published in straight HTML, and are available to search engines. :-)
