Many of you probably know me from many of my posts on the forums. However I haven't been active recently because I have been starting my own business doing SEO work for clients and building out their internal and external web sites among other things.
One of the corner stones of SEO is easily readable URL’s that contain descriptive keywords. This means you have to have a good URL Rewriter in place. I choose
Ionic’s ISAPI Rewriter, that many of you have probably used, that integrated nicely with IIS 6.0. However that left a big gap between using Visual Studio’s Intigrated Web Server (which doesn’t support
ISAPI) and a full blown IIS Server. The benifits are pretty obvious for running the Intigrated Web Server that comes with Visual Studio, for one you don’t always have to have IIS that comes with Windows XP always running as a service and the host of security
problems that comes with it, two I was running Windows Vista and IIS 7.0 has some huge differences from IIS 6.0.
So I sat down one night and wrote my own
Apache mod_rewrite compatible HttpModule for running the same rule-set that I defined for Ionic’s ISAPI Rewriter, to fill in the gap and make developing on my local machine as close as running the live web site on IIS 6.0.
If anybody is interested I offer the
Url Rrewriter as a free download:
I am also soliciting feed back if you have any comments about my website or the product it self. Please tell me what would make this URL Rewriter a pleasure to use. Because with ISAPI taking a back seat in IIS 7.0, I would really like to heavily market
Please let me know if you like this. Also if you find a bug there is a 5.00 discount off your purchase. The product is also only $20.00.
