Support » Everything else WordPress » Google question, spiders will work?

  • Hello,

    First: Sorry for the english.

    I am afraid to merge my site from a full html page to a php redirected one (wordpress) – my site is listed as google’s top #1 on the keywords/subject I talk about.

    I found out that the index.php file responsable for all my visitors, is just a redirection to another file that redirects to another… until it reaches the template folder and “builds” the site stuff.

    My question is if Google will be able to see my site as it should (with all the content I put on it, all the links etc) just like he does with my HTML.

    OR, will google just see this below and then leave?

    <?php
    /* Short and sweet */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);
    require('./wp-blog-header.php');
    ?>

  • If it works, is there any downside of using WordPress php styles VERSUS a full page in .html, manually done?

    (On my old site I do everything by hand, link implementation, content everything…)

    Separating content and style – has only advantages, no sownside that I know of.

    And no, G. or any other spider for that matter never sees the index.php you posted above.

    awesome, thanks for clearing it out.

    and yeah, I understand its all a system / security from WP (and others CM out there) to do those php “forwardings”, I was just worried about spiders actions towards these. ^^
