I thought there would be sense in providing a consolidated list of things you most definitely DO NOT want to be doing if you want a high ranking in the search engines. There are 5 main things that literally hundreds of thousands of webmasters err on regularly. With a few little changes they could make a big difference in their rankings. Below are the 5 most common errors and their solutions in no particular order. The Error:
It is now rare that I will see a framed website and believe that the use of frames in anyway enhances the site, or that it is a practical necessity for a webmaster. It isn’t so much that framed sites generally rank lower, it is that few webmasters know how to correctly optimize them.
The majority of those 697,000 websites require search engine optimization as to be honest, their current optimization stinks. Not many of those sites are going to rank in the top 10 of anywhere.
Just to have in your noframe tag “…browser does not support frames” Is a great way to never get your website found on a search engine.
<BODY onLoad=”if (parent.frames.length==0) top.location=’http://www.yoursite.com/frameset.html’;”>
Also be aware that you can achieve what a frameset does through the use of CSS layer positioning, iframes and other methods. Only use frames if you really, really have to.
Well, at least don’t try to do it yourself if you really are not sure what you are doing and the domain is of high value to you. You may also risk going over spam thresholds. For the price of less than your average small banner campaign (ABAKUS anyway) you could get it done by a professional.
If a domain is not your standard static html page, is dynamic, uses session ids, cms etc. save yourself some possible heartache and get a professional in. At least go for a telephone consultation before you wade into the code.
