View Full Version : Not framed site to frames, SEO workaround?
07-15-2004, 10:13 AM
I have a question, I have a web-site (see sig ) and it's framed. I understand this is a no-no, but... what if I made the index file a standard static web-page with links to a frames navagation.
For example, on my site you have a left hand nav frame, and under the proprosed change I would make the first page with no frames, and at the same time making sure it looked like the rest of the framed site. This would allow me to make SEO changes to the site, and mabey a higher ranking. As soon as the user makes a choice as to which section to navagate to, it would change back to frames.
Would this improve my SEO and my placement on SERP's?
Would this be frowned apon by Google .
Thanks ahead of time,

You have to lose the frames.
Chances are you use frames for the ease to change the navigation that is only on one page. So a change on this page is all that you have to do.
To do this you should use SSI (Server Side Include), this is the cure to frames. You just make a menu file and Include it in your HTML original pages.
Look at my site, you'll see the menu system on the left is an SSI include.
It's added to the original code with the command :
This will take the file menufile.htm and paste it under the location of the command in the original html page. This is done by the server and gives you a page with the documents code addition end result.
SSI is usually .SHTML files. Your server can be set to treat other files as server parsed file from your Cpanel, so you do not have to rename all the files to shtml.

Maybe I miss explained... it's very easy.
Your page with the menu is menu.htm
One of your framed page is stuff.htm
You just add a 2 collumn table to the stuff.htm page.
Cut and paste the content in one of the cells and add...
...to the second cell. The server will take the code of the page menu.htm and insert it in the cell that has the command in the stuff.htm page to make a single page out of those 2.
Any better ?

No problem buddy... lol
Don't forget... if your page is stuff.htm it will not work until you set extension .htm as server parsed in your Cpanel. Only .shtml are server parsed by default on Apache servers.
