adding ASP pages to search engines and directories.

114 New Member
What would be the best way to add pages from a mainly ASP website to the major search engines?

I heard that .asp pages are not really indexed etc. or that there is another way to do it effectively.

This is for some help regarding a website that is mainly asp. pages. and is a news website. News articles are added daily from a separate part of the site, and are stored in an "access" database, i think it's SQL

Even the home page is an index.asp page. I can't really use static pages on these , pages, as i have to show included content from the database, and the pages that show the articls have the asp look to it, ie. there is a question mark in the url.

What is the best way for me to add this to google, altavisa etc?

I also note that a lot of my pages have an inc. header page which means that they all also have the same title.

Ideally i'd like each news article to have a separate title, but if not, i'd like each page to be indexed .

Could someone please advise. Many thanks in advance.

If the title page is in the header does it mean that it will read the same in all the google etc. pages?

On a website with asp pages that has news articles that ideally should have different titles and descriptions, how do you get around this?

The meta tags for the news pages are in the inc.header.file like this

<!--#include file="inc_heade r.asp"-->

this means that they will be the same on all the different news pages.

How can i change it so that each page is different? They are .asp pages, and it's a potential problem.

Also does anyone know if dynamic pages like these will get listed as such on the search engines?

anyway the code, in the header file is this, will i be able to add meta tags as in title, keywords, and content?

  1. <!--#include file="config.asp"--> 
  2. <!--#include file="inc_api.asp"--> 
  3. <% Response.Buffer = True %> 
  5. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"> 
  6. <html><head> 
  7.     <title>the title goes here </title> 
  9. will add keywords and description tags here. 
  10. there is some javascript too.
  11.     </head>
  13.     <body
  14. leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">
  16. <table width="750" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" align="center">
  17.   <tr>
  18.     <td valign="top" class="style12">
  20.     <TABLE WIDTH=750 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=0 align="center">
  21.       <TR> 
  22. the top menu link bar  goes here

I'm fine using the inc.header.file in all pages. but there is one page which actually shows the full page news article. I'd like this page to have meta tags unique to it, so i can submit to google news.

also how would you add the words in the meta tags below,? would they be separated by a comma or what ? like this forexample?
<meta name="Keywords" content="<%=thi s, is, some, keywords,%>"<me ta>

  4. <html>

  6. <title><%=title%></title> 
  7. <meta name="Description" content="<%=meta_description%>"<meta> 
  8. <meta name="Keywords" content="<%=meta_keywords%>"<meta>

Not a coding question as such but highly related to asp/dynamic pages issues : has anyone any suggestions on the following ASP sites are generally (always) of a dynamic nature, pages can be built on the contents of querystrings, so search engines can only be directed to your first index.asp page since the search engine is unable to deduce what querystring parameters should/could be used.

Are the differences between a search engine, a subject directory and a meta search engine significant for an ebusiness web site owner? A meta search engine merely uses ordinary existing search engines. A subject directory classifies websites into some category.

I have a home page with Verizon. Within this home page I have several sub-directories with their own associated pages. One of these subdirectories has personal contact information and I wish to restrict access to these pages to everyone except a few individuals. Is there a way to add a password to a subdirectory so that anyone trying to access these pages will have to input the correct password in order to view them? Thanks.
