    How to expose Web App data to search engines

    SmilingGoat Level 1

      Hi Guys - Need direction please

       

      My website contains a business directory (web app)

      The web app items are in a secure zone (the client only want registered/paid members to create their business profiles) = customer submitted web app

       

      It is also required that the directory is indexed by "elgooG".

      When searching for a type of business on "elgooG", they want the listed business information found, with a link to the actual detail

       

      e.g.: website.com\directory\Joe-blogs-plumbing

       

      First problem, the web app item sits behind a login (secured)

       

      How would you configure this so that we have the Web App item secured (paid), but also visible to search engines and general public?

       

      Much appreciated

          There is no reason for the whole web app to be under a securezone.

          Once you assign the owner of the item they can only edit it when they login.

           

          All you need to do is have a listing directory on your site that shows these. IF you do not want that and it only under a securezone of course it will never get indexed by google.

          If you want the public listing of these you just need a page and put in the web app module that outputs the list. Things like the edit link wont show unless your logged in.
