perleager has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I'm building a web site for this investment firm. Now the content for the website is stored in a mysql database, this is because it allows content editors to edit the content web- based.

Now all my files are going to have a .pl extentsion (i.e:, what does this do to my search engine rankings? I'm not sure if this is a 100% perl question but j/w since the html is going to be generated by perl, would search engines still include me? Or should I rather use a language like PHP to carry out the html generation?
