    I don't want to go into detail here, so I've sent you a message - but there's no unnecessary step factor. These sites provide comparisons and convenience not available elsewhere, and there's more to the equation. The sites only work BECAUSE they are aff sites.

    It's the sort of thing that was discussed in VIP about how to defend against content scrapers. Something in the PHP prevents the spiders from seeing the content.
    If you have unique text on a HTML page, you only have to search for a part of it in double quotes and you can usually see where it is (and who has nicked it), if the page has been indexed. On PHP pages, spiders do not always do the job properly. Sometimes PHP site frames also prevent Adsense from running, in my experience. I really don't know enough about PHP to comment properly, I can only say what happens occasionally, and that it happens on PHP sites where I'm only able to put content on via a CMS, so I'm not in a position to mess around with it.

    I think there is, so I've sent you a message back

    I think we could have this conversation in the open, there's nothing personal about it. Up to you though.

    PHP is not the problem. PHP is just a programming language used to generate HTML to be served. There could be problems with the particular CMS used that make it unusable by the spiders, for example, perhaps it is using some session based mechanism to maintain state. So you are partially correct, in that, such a problem would not occur with a static HTML page.

    Update: The French privacy watchdog is to meet with Google, on behalf of all EU countries, to discuss this new combined privacy policy of theirs.

    The search giant consolidated 60 privacy policies into one single agreement in March.

    The EU expressed concern over the legality and impact of the change.

    France's information commission, the CNIL, said it was not yet "totally satisfied" with Google's explanation of the amendments.

    "We want to untangle the precise way that specific personal data is being used for individual services, and examine what the benefit for the consumer really is," CNIL president Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin said.
