Newbie Asp default pagerank problem

Discussion in 'C#' started by az266, Jun 12, 2005.

    I have an ASP based website which has one problem.

    As an ASP site, I have the my normal home page www.abc.com with a pagerank of 1, but I also have my page www.abc.com/default which has a pagerank of 3. None of my 10 second level internal pages have a pagerank, neither do my 300 third level pages.
    SEMrush
    I think that I have a problem as my pagerank is split - after all, my home page and my /default page are the same thing.

    Do I need to change my linking structure somehow so that these two pages are seen as being the same, so that some of the combined pagerank flows down from them.

    All my external inbound links go to www.abc.com, and every page (300 of them), is linked to the main 10 pages.

    Any help would be great.

    Usually I see it the other way around the www.abc.com has a higher rank than abc.com/default.asp. But anyway...I personally wouldn't worry too much about it. Consider your pagerank as 3, if all your external and internal links are pointing to abc.com, it should work itself out by the next udpate. Also FYI...you may not be getting many responses here as it's really not an ASP-based issue. :)

    If you make sure your default.asp is not referenced in any of your, or anybody else's links, your "folder" page (i.e. website.com/dir-name/) will get all the hits and ranking.

    For default.asp to have a higher rank, incoming links must be specifically pointing to that page.

    I assume in your IIS manager you have enabled default documents and default.asp is on top of the list?
