View Full Version : Will my Gallery be searchable by Google, etc. ?

March 2nd, 2006, 12:58 PM
My gallery is dedicated to all kinds of Insects and what-not, some have important scientific names, there's camera info, etc.

Seeing that i'm having an impossible time getting anyone to help me with keywords and descriptions of categories and photos into meta tags, my question is this:

As Google and other engines continue to spider my gallery, eventually, will you be able to search on Google for, let's say "fly photo" or even "canon camera" and the photos with those words in the photo display's keywords, description and user comments will be spidered?

I want to make sure my Gallery is going to get the utmost possible exposure.

Hello well I am no spider guru but I can tell you by using the spider urls versus regular page links more of your pages will be spidered by google and other various spiders.

Use Spider-friendly URLs doesn't work... When I check yes, all I get is

Not Found
The requested URL /offers/index.php/cat/1 was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Thats because your server can not handle them

If this is a dedicated server you can try adding AcceptPathInfo On to your apache config.
