    Hi. My web page for my local church(at http://www.stdavids.isfriendly.com/)
    won't turn up in google. I have submitted the URL to them some time ago.
    Would some of you be able to check the meta tags (and any thing else relevant)
    and help me to get my page to turn up when someone searches for it.

    Do you mean http://users.actrix.co.nz/hallhousehold/index.htm ?

    Your URL is to a framed redirection.
    http://www.google.com/webmasters/2.html
    See the sections on redirection, doorway pages, and frames.

    There are also errors in the page, which may contribute:
    <http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A//users.actrix.co.nz/hallhousehold/index.htm>

    You have missing images due to the use of backslashes instead of
    forward slashes:
    <img src="pictures\logo.jpg">
    <img src="pictures\pic3.jpg" ...

    They write:
    [...]

    We are able to index dynamically generated pages. However, because our web
    crawler can easily overwhelm and crash sites serving dynamic content, we
    limit the amount of dynamic pages we index. [...]
    Is it better to have always also a html version of a page if one has a
    dynamic (for example php version), then?

    <snip>

    When I enter that URL in to IE 6 I get a server error page that reads:-

    | Error Occurred While Processing Request
    | Error Diagnostic Information
    |
    | An error occurred while evaluating the expression:
    |
    | Var = Mid("#Source#",ST+Eposition,(ET-(ST+Eposition)))
    |
    | Error near line 75, column 9.
    |
    | Parameter 3 of function Mid which is now "-96" must be a non-negative
    integer

    - and so on. With the only link on the page being a mailto: e-mail
    address. If that is what google's spider gets when visiting the page it
    is unlikely to place in any sort of ranking. Try Googling for "Error
    Occurred While Processing Request" and see if that turns up your site
    ;-)

    No. All my sites are php, most with dynamic content, and they are all
    indexed.

    BTW, have you looked at your site with Firefox?

    Thank you for your answer. I was wondering whether it was the case because,
    as far as I remember, my website was better ranked for some terms which I
    usually check like "fakta Italien" and "boende i italien" in the web
    section of google, a few months ago and my use of php page has increased.
    I understand that this could depend on many reasons and I am trying to
    correct the code on some pages but I wondered whether the use of php could
    have played a role.

    View the source for the link you provided!

    <SCRIPT LANUAGE="javascript"><!--
    var lookscoolScript = true;
    //-->
    </SCRIPT>

    That's all that google sees!
    Why should they index thatt?

    After scrolling, you find the frameset.

    That's the perfect site I ever had seen.
    Only the #$%!@#$%& banner is broken.

    A sterling example of the
    world's oldest hack to hide
    source -- which guarantees
    it to be unworthy of hiding.

    I hope you are joking, Edwin. The banner is surely an annoyance, but
    there are many errors in the framed page. To start, my default aqua
    background color is used - makes it ugly <g>, color codes have quotes
    and don't have the #, images are missing due to the backslash instead
    of forward slash, font-sizes set with px can't be resized in IE ...

    All the pages have similar errors.

    Thank Beau,
    After srolling down, I failed to see a NOFRAMES link
    which would also assure indexing.

    You can also submit a static page that contains links to the dynamic URLs
    you need indexed.
    [...]
    It seems to be a good idea to give an alternative html version, then,
    doesn´t it?

    And if I understand the following sentence properly, a good solution could
    be to write links like
    <li> <a
    href="https://www.scaiecat-spa-gigi.com/sv/boende-i-italien.php">Boende i
    Italien</a></li>
    on https://www.scaiecat-spa-gigi.com/sv/faktaomitalien.php

    [...]
    You can completely avoid broken links and pages by using all absolute URL
    addresses on your page, but that will make maintenance more difficult later.
    [...]

    That part of the article is about ASP and you're writing in PHP, so I
    suppose this is a general question. Google for 'relative link' and
    absolute link' -- there should be plenty of information.

    Searched for "Error Occurred While Processing Request St David's Rotorua" and
    there was no result. Just searching for "Error Occurred While Processing
    Request" returns far too many sites.

    Nothing to do with me! :) I just wrote the main page, the minister set up the
