Engines hate Dynamic pages and RoSEE
solves that problem by converting your Dynamic Web Pages to
Search-Engine-Friendly Static HTML pages. Search engines give
much higher rankings to Static HTML
RoSEE General Info:
- Short for Robots SEE
(pronounced Row-See); the software
package that makes dynamic web pages
visible to the Search Engines.
creates static HTML pages, which Search
Engines can easily index and use, from
dynamic pages like shopping carts, or ANY link-navigated web pages created from a
RoSEE uses a two-step process; first creating a static page from
a dynamic page, then changing the URL address of that page to
one the search engines will visit.
Search Engines do not give dynamic web pages much import and
they seldom appear in Search Engine top listings, if at all.
Until RoSEE, there has only been a partial solution; using
complex server-installed modules beyond the range of 99.9% of
web masters, which offer nothing to help the readability of the
resulting URL. Unlike these previous so-called "fixes",
simple-to-use, quick-to-setup, easy-to-understand and the

What happens when your DYNAMIC PAGES are
converted to STATIC PAGES?
RoSEE creates Static pages that are a shell over
the dynamic pages. The Dynamic pages are still there and still
used for 'actions' to take place.
RoSEE will provide a seamless transition
from Static to Dynamic, thus making it
difficult to realize, you clicked to Dynamic content.( Add to
Cart, View Cart, Check-out, etc) If this is the case, then
has done her job!
RoSEE's purpose is to provide a smooth
transition into the dynamic part of the
shopping cart from the
HTML pages. Once a user has traveled into the dynamic areas,
should stay there. If one travels back to the Static pages from
the Dynamic and the Dynamic had totals or Dynamic information,
those totals will not be reflected in the Static pages (though
if the user clicks back into the dynamic page, the totals ARE
While the Link in your web site's NavBar should point to the
Static pages so they can easily be found by the search engines,
once in the Dynamic content, the dynamic NavBar should always
point to the Dynamic content.
The search engine bots will follow the HTML links only. They
will not follow a Form's buttons and they won't trust the
Dynamic links or pages.

A Dynamic page that is buried under
session IDs is hard to pin point. You
can't just use the Dynamic URL to travel
to a web page because these session IDs
are expecting the viewer to come from
one page and one page only. The
positions of these pages must be
triangulated. This process is very time
consuming and requires a huge amount of
your computers CPU resources to build a
structured database. The average time
for getting and processing a page is 15
to 45 seconds per page. (The deeper
levels a page is embedded, the longer it takes).

is actually extremely fast. 90% of the

don't really exist and are located

is correct. The only limitation is
that the existing individual dynamic
