Should You Avoid The Use Of Frames On Your Web Pages?

SBI! Traffic Test

With frames, you can display more than one HTML document in the same browser window. Each HTML document is called a frame, and each frame is independent of the others.

The downside(s) of using frames are:

  • It is difficult to print the entire page
  • The web developer must keep track of more HTML documents
  • Most importantly Search Engines may not Index any information on them. It is extremely difficult at this time for a Search Engine to crawl them. the bottom line is it is safer not to have them on your site.
Your designer may suggest that you have frames in your site, just for the appearance. Just remember that to this date from the research that I did, none of the top Internet Marketers who make the big bucks on the Web, do not use frames.

They do however get the top rankings with the search Engines. Hmmm, you say, there must be something to that. That's right, Content is still King, as they say. So if you want the rankings, stay with the content and avoid the catchy little frame ideas.
