Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We are developing a website (sort of information index for companies) where almost all content is accessed via one search field (similar to Google): you type a search phrase, get results and then can click on the link that leads to actual information page of the company. These are the most important pages to be indexed. In company page, there are keywords (tags) that you can click on and get resuts for that keyword.

Obviously, search engines won't enter all possible search variants to that search field to get links to the companies and I guess that keyword linking in the company info page is not enough.

I think that submitting sitemaps to search engines should help a lot. But are there any other solutions to get content indexed on the website of this sort?

About 90K at the moment but the number keeps growing. –  Vitalius Aug 19 '12 at 21:31

Nice question;

If you shared the website URL than it can more helpful for me to provide best suitable solution.

By considering your requirement what is suggest is:

  • Create static page by company type or alphabetic sequence or industry category. This page will contain list of companies comes under specific category.
  • Enlist those category page on your home page (home page is the best place from where most of the pages are being crawled by search engine).

You can also create top 10 company section on your home page based on search query (this will enlist those 10 companies based on search trends)

Still if you are not convinced with this solution; kindly share link of your website for study and will suggest best possible solution.
