Search bots traversing your PHP pages...??

I am using YabbSE and my forum gets indexed.

As far as I am aware, I didn't need to do anything special - it just happened.

Should work the same as a php website - my site gets 'deep linked' by bots.

Essentially, the bot sees an html page anyway as that is the output from php Wink

but like me, you have the forum within the cgi server right? and the web pages in your htdocs dir, thus...

if you have googled you home page www.username.f9.co.uk will the bot go through the link cgi.username.force9.co.uk/forum Huh? this is not on onother server?? hmmmm do you know if it does it?

The spyder should follow links from your site so
www.domain.co.uk/index.html
links to
cgi.domain.co.uk/forum/
therefore the site will get crawled.

To make sure it gets spidered, simply submit
cgi.domain.co.uk/forum/
to the spider (add URL) and it should run from there.

Good luck!
