Non WordPress Directory and Blog on same domain - possible issues inc SEO (2 posts)

    I want to build a standard wordpress site and host it on the root domain.

    I also want to add several hundred location pages, which will have features that I cannot build in wordpress.

    I would hope to build these as pure PHP pages linked to a separate MySql DB.

    So my URL structure might be
    mydomain.com
    mydomain.com/about
    mydomain.com/locations
    - all of the above built in WP
    - the following pages will be pure PHP
    mydomain.com/locations/location1
    mydomain.com/locations/location2

    Any major issues in implementing such a setup.

    My main concern is that I do not ruin the SEO potential of the main site while attracting geo targeted traffic on the individual location pages.

    I am assuming I will need to generate a custom sitemap.xml that includes all relevant pages.

    Any suggestions or warnings welcome.

    Thanks ColinK
