html vs php for setting up business directory site
Please help me out with some knowledge guys. I am putting together a business directory site, and I am using XHTML/CSS to do this. For example: category.html >> restaurants.html >> chinese.html >> mandarin.html, and then they all backlink as well (easier for users and SEO I think). I could have went the route of setting up a database and putting it together that way (which would probably have been a lot faster), but I heard that using straight HTML is better for SEO. Am I gaining an advantage by going the HTML route? It is more time consuming however.
