>> instead of having shortcut from
>> root to startpage, you need to make shortcut from startpage to root.
> Why?

Because for a search engine like google the pages
are looking like different pages, while the content is the same because
actually they "are" the same page.

This is called double content and it might lead to decreased ranking.
There are people who believe that it makes a difference, if your pages are
found at position 233638 instead of 354271 and this is why they try to avoid
this double content.

This is an example:

Root    => Shortcut to Page1
    Page1    => Content of the startpage

Will give the user two pages, since Page1 can still be called directly by

Root    => Content of the startpage
    Page1    => Shortcut to Root

Will give the user only one page, since Page1 always redirects to Root
whitout using any id.

So if you care about SEO you should choose option 2.
