I have a page that just will not get indexed by google. After reading many posts and scouring the web I think it is because the directory level is too deep.
http://www.synergeez...ships/index.php (2 levels deep)
It will index everything that is one level deep or the page right before the one above http://www.synergeez...llery/index.php But once I go to the second level (ships) nothing is indexed.
I am thinking that I need to move the ships directory up 1 level so that when google crawls to http://www.domain.co...llery/index.php and sees the "ships" link the URL will now go to http://www.domain.com/ships/index.php instead of http://www.domain.co...ships/index.php
What do you think?
I have made numerous changes (thanks to this forum) to the pages within the second level so that google will hopefully crawl to them (have to get question 1 answered first though or they will never get crawled no matter how well they are optimized ) e.g.
1. made SE friendly URLs by getting rid of '?' after the page being called.
2. put '/' between all parameters that are being passed to dynamically created pages.
3. and getting rid of the '.' for the extension of the '.' php page that is being called by using <ForceType "fileName"> in my .htaccess file --> ships.php is now ships
So my question is how long is too long as far as how many parameters I can place in the URL which are separated by '/'s after the page that is being called?
My example is this (assuming 1 level is the deepest one should go from the last question):
so ships is the php page being called and New-Jersey and BB-62 are 2 parameters being passed to the php page ships. Sometimes I pass 3 parameters but never more than that. Does google think that this link is 3 levels deep?
Thank you so much for all who replies
