    I did a recent redesign on my site. I converted my static webmerge pages to dynamic PHP. I did this mostly to save on disk space and make updating a whole lot easier. However I went from 12,000 + pages indexed in G to 3,500. The Detail pages are not any different really once they are parsed. The index pages are a little diffrent and actually have more for the spiders to find now.

    Does anyone have experience with this? I hope my pages indexed recovers, if not I guess I will change back, I was just starting to get consistant sales the very same day I made the change, bummer....

    Thanks,
    David

    I think google is starting to remove duplicate datafeed type pages from it's servers.

    What makes you say that? Good thing I played around and changed my feeds to be more unique...

    Are you using pages like
    www.domain.com/index.php?s=xxxx&q=yyyyyy

    Try URLrewrite techniques.
    May be it will help.

    Maybe I'm seeing it wrong but. Even though logically you didn't do this, physically you did. You removed 12,000 indexed pages and replaced them with 12,000 other pages. For google to index 12,000 pages, give it 3 months. Do you expect google to just reindex you site instantaneously. If you make a change like that, wait 3 to 6 months, if after 6 months you aren't fully indexed, then you can complain :-)

    I'm not saying to panic. I've been noticing google isn't including descriptions on tons of datafeed sites. I'm sure it has nothing to do with it being datafeeds. It has to do with duplicate content. If you make your content unique it shouldn't matter.

    This is just my observation.

    I am using www.mysite.com?=somedynamiclink

    I am not familiar with any url rewite techniques. What exactly does this involve and what are the benefits?

    Using URLRewrite techniques you can generate pages like domain.com/product_12.html , domain.com/product_1355.html etc.

    Advantage:
    Each page would get individual rank.

    if you use index.php?somevar=value
    the page's PR will depend on index.php only.
    It is of lesser weight compared to
    domain.com/value.html

    Caution:
    URL rewrites are to be carefully executed. Mistakes will give you Internal server error 500 and your website will not be accessible.

    Learn and experiment locally before you go live...
