    index.asp vs index.html

    Hi,

    this may be a very basic question but could not find an answer when searching ... previously I had had asp on the home page of one of my sites to list events etc ... they do not want that anymore so I was going to change the page from index.asp to index.html

    - Will I be doing any harm since the site is already indexed?
    - does .asp or .html for the index page have any effect with the search engines?

    Thanks!

    Jen

    unlikely, but just incase set index.asp as an alias for index.asp, this way links to your old home page don't break.(I don't know how to do this for IIS, I'm sure someone else will)
    - does .asp or .html for the index page have any effect with the search engines?
    minimal, but html will load faster than a .asp page, so that's a benefit.
