Hi,
I was talking with a web designer to create a new website. He works with .asp. He said that asp is much better than php because google ranks pages created in asp better. I would like to know your opinion. Has this a foundation or am I being cheated?
Thanks,
Marina

He talks with forked tongue.
Maybe this was a fortuitous warning that this web designer is not knowledgeable enough when it comes to Google and SEO. Or maybe he misleads you because he wants to place your site on his MS server.

Either way, perhaps you should look elsewhere for a Web Designer.

The following 2 points of view are both more or less as correct as each other:

1) ASP is Microsoft's version of PHP

2) PHP is the open source version of ASP

AFAIK Microsoft 'came up with' ASP long after PHP had made its mark, although I don't think Microsoft would admit that ASP is just their version of PHP and both have been developed significantly since they both came on the scene; not that this matters to your question greatly, but it may provide a little context to Piskies post, which I entirely agree with.

Either your web designer is not being entirely straight with you, or they don't know any better - either way, as neither is better than the other when it comes to SEO it maybe time to look elsewhere for a web designer...

Personally, I prefer php, because I just don't like working with Windows servers, but luckily for Microsoft, Google doesn't agree with me. They absolutely don't care what file type you use.

Actually they were released within months of each other.
PHP mid 1995 and ASP late 1996, and PHP didn't gain much of a foothold until V3 came out in 1998.

I prefer to work in ASP mainly because I started programming ASP vBscript in 1997 (in-house Windows server) (and the fact that PHP looks like it was designed by a comittee who's members didn't actually speak to each other)

chris is 100% correct about the timing of PHP and ASP and like chris I prefer ASP for the same reasons. And to tack on what everyone else is saying that it doesn't matter what technology is behind the display of web pages one can answer the obvious question. What is displayed when a page is generated from any server code? Answer: It ain't server language or server code unless that person doesn't know what he/she is doing or they intentionally want to represent server code as text.
