[Plugin: WP Super Cache] Can this plugin improve google indexing? (4 posts)

    Some pages on my website don't get indexed by Google, probably because of the type op dynamic link that is used. These links are generated by my Aniga gallery plugin and look like this: http://www.akershoek.com/wp/recent-photos/?pid=246#picture_nav

    My other pages have a permalink structure, so this works fine with google.

    Can WP Super Cache help me in this case? I am asking this, because the first line of the description for the plugin is this: "This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog."

    Or should I concentrate on other things to get my photopages indexed?

    I would appreciate your thoughts.

    Thanks and regards,
    Jeroen

    Unfortunately not. Your gallery won't display properly if you have the super cache part enabled because of the ?pid= part of the url.

    Google can index those urls now, and has been able to for quite some time.

    Thanks for your response. Do you mean that my gallery won't work at all with WP Super Cache?

    I have read that google can index those urls, but for some reason it doesn't for my website. Other pages get indexed very quick, but my gallery pages are not. It is a bit frustrating ;-)

    I have tried some things to improve, for example changing the alt and adding title tags for the photos to a meaningful title. The Aniga plugin used to show the filename with the alt tag. But no improvements :-(

    I am thinking about modifying the plugin more, so I can use static links instead of dynamic ones. Although I am not sure how to do this, so it will require a lot of experimenting on my part.
    Another option could be changing to the gallery option in the new WP versions. I have tried this, but I guess I have to change my templates for this to work properly.

    Maybe there are some other options I could try. Please let me know if I have overlooked something. Tips are highly appreciated :-)

    Thanks and regards,
    Jeroen

    Yes, it won't work unfortunately. You can't have the ?pid= in your URLs. It will work 'half on' though.
