Will HTML Web sites be Exctinct?

I just thought I would throw this question out to the community. The reason why I ask this question is that I have been noticing a lot of the key words I search on the big three return mostly blog sites. Especially Google. I would like to hear what you all have to say about this. In the mean time I will voice my opinion on this. It is my belief that in less than one year you will not see any HTML web sites in the natural listings of any search engines. The search engines are and will be taken over by blogs. There I said it!

Since we all agree that "dynamic" websites appear to be a trend for the time being ...
Is there a way that a static web site`s Front Page can utilize "dynamics" ... to randomly feature products on the Front Page, rather than simply having a static front page with static featured products, using ZenCart or OsCommerce? And have that featured product click thru directly into the store area of that product?
(Not attacking or boasting or setting anyone up ... just simply asking a question.)
Now, lets really get you thinking ...
What if creating new "static" pages from a "dynamic" data base was as easy as a click ... What then???
Because remember ... search engines look for "time stamps" on HTML pages. They go to index the site and find new "time stamps" on the HTML pages that were just created by using the "dynamic" data base and guess what ... they re-index the pages and the site.
Now, better yet ... what if you had the ability to take you 200 item data base ... and convert them individually into HTML pages with a single click??
Now you go from a 10 page "static" HTML site .... to a 700 page "dynamically designed" static HTML site. (Why 700 pages? Because your items are going to be cross-indexed within the data base with multiple catagories.)
I wonder if anyone has figures pertaining to the ratio of information, e-commerce, business, blogs, and other types of sites exist on the entire World Wide Web portion of the Internet?
Thank you for admitting that timestamps are important in SEO and SERP !! For strong SERP, you need to do a lot of things right. "Dynamic" Time Stamping is one of the keys ... why else do you think active blogs do so well. (Duh, because everytime an addition is made to a blog ... it creates a new time stamp !!)
You`ve proven my point about using HTML pages with your Wikipedia example. Wikipedia, in your own words, "has new content being added all the time". And that is why being able to not only have your "dynamic" .asp, or .php or .cgi e-commerce store operating ... but to be able to very easily create HTML pages for every one of your products is essential for strong SERP.
What is the most difficult type site to have indexed? An e-commerce site, simply because the search engines have difficulty indexing .asp, .php and .cgi scripts.
Now you can have the best of both worlds ... a "dynamic" e-commerce site that allows cross-referencing of products, and allows products to be in multiple categories ...
But also to have that e-commerce site easily indexed by the search engines because you created your entire on-line catalog (store) in "static" HTML format with the click of a button. And you can do it time and time again ... thus keeping your time stamps , which you agreed was an important part of SEO and SERP, current and fresh.
The search engines don`t care about a thing !! They do not have a heart, a soul, or emotions !! They work on mathematical algorithms.
By increasing the overall size of my site (HTML pages), I increase the chances that my site will be indexed.... relevant or not. And if I`m relevant ... then even the better.
Its like going to a buffet at Luby`s and going to a buffet at Ceasar`s Palace in Las Vegas. Which buffet do you think the ants would rather go visit ... the small little buffet with 10 items or the huge, varietal buffet with 250 items??
Come on folks, think. This isn`t "rocket science".blondieblue2007-9-3 19:56:11
As you can see there seems to be a trend happening on the search engines as far as dynamic sites, blogs or CMS. Becuase of the way Google looks at these sites, the trend will continue. So why would someone invest money into the static HTML web site? Why not combine the static web pages you are used to seeing with the power of a Blog?
Why don`t we reccomend this more to new business owners who come to StartupNation?
Are we doing a diservice to the new business owners who don`t know any better? Maybe that should be another thread....JoeJustin2007-9-3 21:45:52
