Hello

I am just finishing an SEO job for one of our main clients.

I instructed our designer to use basic html for all the important pages I have optimised for, the core and long tail phrases.

He has just shown me the finished site, all the pages are php even the ones I specifically asked to be HTML.

Q: does Google and the like index and rank php pages the same as HTML or will I have to get the designer to redo the main pages as basic HTML?

Everyone's thoughts, opinions, and experiences are much appreciated.

Best regards

I don't think Google cares at all about if the pages are .html or .php

This is not what Google cares. Even PHP is creating HTML pages. But the thing is PHP creates dynamic pages. So when robots are visiting the site dynamics pages are not there.

Search engines cannot SEE the php code on the page.

They only see the html that is output from the script.

The biggest mistakes that php programmers make is:
- not having unique title and description per page
- having tag soup html that does not validate
- having multiple URLs that can access the same content.

Avoid those three pitfalls and your php page will do as well as any static html coded site can do.
