Question: If you program your website in “ruby” language – does it work the same way with SEO as HTML?
Answer: Search engines never see Ruby, PHP, Perl, or ASP code. This is because these languages, are server side languages which outputs to HTML. From an SEO point of view there is no difference between a page that utilizes server side technology and the one that doesn’t.
As long as you request a web page through your browser the server that host the page takes care of your request. Google cares ONLY about your output. It doesn’t care how you make the pages. It just looks at the HTML output. So check the OUTPUT that you are getting and then work back to the programming language / CMS system and tweak it to get the SEO friendly output that you know and want.
