I asked a Moderator about the use of iframes as a page presentation. He suggested that I look here. maybe he meant for me to post the question. Is it a good or terrible idea to use iframes as far as the crawl and PR is concerned? I realize that iframes are limited to windows. Will they cause the site to miss an opportunity to increase exposure?

Burachde, I don't use IFrames but can't imagine it creating any SE problems (it's just a couple lines of code). If I'm not mistaken they call for an external file so the bigger question maybe does that file get hit by the spiders? It doesn't seem that you'd get credit for the text therein.... Anybody else???

I know Google will spider iframes, but it spiders the iframe page by itself, as a unique page. I have an Adsense default setup, and it shows alot on one page. Google indexed the default page separately.
Hmm. Google must have finally paid attention to the robots.txt on that site. It's not listed now. But it was.

If I am not mistaken, the iframes are posted on another server than the one being viewed. The contents are not spidered, Are the meta tags ( keywords,title, description )...etc, crawled and/or indexed. That would, to me seem like a contradiction since relevance is also determined by density...sounds like a proclamation but the question is...does the title,description and keywords still get recorded by the SE during the crawl?

I use flash and an Iframe. What I do is, between the iframe code give the links to the main sections of my website. This is usability also (sort of...)
<iframe src="sumthin.xxx">Hey, my iframe is <a href="sumthin.xxx">sumthin</a></iframe>
It's simple and you will get spidered ;)
hmm didnt think that the actual code would go through on the forum, because I am seeing an iframe.. is that a security risk?

HAHA that's some nice Yahoo/MSN ing you got goign on there wlh, the one thing I might add is olympia coffee in the bullets (The reason) is that within each element you should make every attempt to incorporate the derications if not the full keys, now withing your UL Li element you have coffee but not olympia you need to get it in there and because its a bs page anyways there is no hard in having the first or last bullet "olympia coffee" :D

You do still need one or 2 external links though I put one up on the serps page http://www.serps.seo-guy.com hope it helps :)
