Hi Bernd,

Exactly, but to force search engines like google to find newly created
pages every site shall have a sitemap or a clear navigation, which helps
for instance google to find the newly created pages faster.



Kind Regards,

P.S. I'll try to catch you today later :-)

Well, any experts here? :)

I don't think that a robot can do more than make http requests etc..
else would be a security case) And that is really something different
accessing the servers file system.

You have a problem with such dynamically generated sites, where you have
"controller" JSP (always the same Url) an thousands of get Parameter to 
determine which content to show.
But thats not the case with OpenCms. The Urls look exactly like static
Urls. No difference.
