Hello.
I am really satisfied with your ISAPI and have a little request.

Do you make converting function of "." (dot) of file name to - or / etc?
This means for example:
from
http://www.testurl.com/test.html
to
http://www.testurl.com/test-html
http://www.testurl.com/test/html
etc.

I guess this will improve Search Engine Optimization effectivity.
Please consider about this. Thanks.

Can you please explain it further? I don't see why it should improve SEO at all.

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I heard that Search Engines regard directory root more important than individual file. Each directory inculdes many pages and directory root is top page of these pages.

In another word, it means,
http://www.testurl.com/test-html
is distinguished as more important than
http://www.testurl.com/test.html
by Search Engines.

I am not sure this is definitely corect or not, but my friend SEO specialist said this, should be true.

Anyway if you add this function your ISAPI will be more useful.
Please consider this. Thanks.

It is not as easy to do.
And I realy never heard about SE preferencing directories instead of files.
