Random home page content
« on: 09-06-2011, 03:46:02 »
I have the home page of one of my sites set to randomly display any one of several main body text using a random include script (the menu & structure stays the same but the body text changes). Each version has a different "teaser" of several paragraphs that links to content deeper in the site. I set it up this way so visitors would see something new most times they visit the site and be introduced to content they might not have looked at through the menu links.

How will this affect search engines? Will they not care, or treat it just like any other content that changes occasionally? Or will they be able to see it is an automated changes and penalize the site?

I don't think its a good idea to show random home page text using script. Some time its pretty hard for search engines to identify your piece of content you want to rank for as you are changing you content randomly. Search engines might have indexed some other content on your home page but next time crawler came to your website and discover some other content, there would be something new for search engines every time they come to your website. Doesn't it look untruthful, inconsistent or as you mentioned you are using script to show these random texts, might be the case search engines are not seeing your content. Have you check your content is being indexed or not?
