Website design question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I want to get away from the simple HTML pages and make a website structured more like ebay is. I am wondering what type of laungauge is used for a website such as ebay. One of the reasons why I would like to know this is because when I make a website in HTML and upload it to google and search it I will see several pages come up for the search. I want just the index page to come up. Can anyone give me a pointer into this type of web design? Thanks

I am not too sure what ebay uses, but a lot of sites are using PHP now.

You can't just pick a different language and have your sub-domains be automatically excluded from search optimization. If it's really an issue, you can request that certain links be removed from Google's search using the URL remover form at the Webmaster Tools (www.google.com/webmasters/tools/).

If you want just a single static page that is dynamically bringing content in without ever changing URL, then understand you will be limiting your possibilities and the task becomes slightly more difficult. If that really floats your boat, then it's time to learn some JavaScript. More specifically, jQuery. Even more specifically, Ajax (to use the dynamic XMLHttpRequest object). Good luck .

Ebay uses CGI. Many sites today use CGI, PHP, ASP, coldfusion, and possibly a few others..

Your index should show up first usually. If not, create a sitemap.xml, upload it to google and make sure the priority of your index is highest.

Use PHP.
You can make one file generate the whole page based on URL/session paramaters. It's what I do, static HTML pages are a pain and I never used them from the start.

With PHP, you can make a separate file for your menu, let's say, And then you can update that menu and it will be updated on all of the pages.

You can make a HTML file for every element of the page (header, footer, whatever)
and then put them together using PHP.
Just go to w3schools.com it's the easiest way to learn PHP, they have many useful tutorials.


Ever since I got a personal testing webserver running PHP on my computer, I don't know how I would live without it.

Protip: make a single HTML page with the complete design, then separate code into several files, and print them out in order.

use include(); or require();

the only difference is that require() will stop the script with a fatal error if a file is not found or fails to load.

Code:

<?php
include(header.html);
include(content.html);
include(footer.html);
?>
