I am looking at establishing a set of keyword domain names, these URLs will have a list of links and keywords in a no frame tag and a framed section. There will be no page affiliated to the domain, which a SE shouldn’t know because we are hoping it would think it is within the frame that it can’t read.
The keyword domain names will take you directly to our main home site if you clicked on them on a SE search.
We have been told that by placing links to other sites and keywords in the no frame section we can increase the chances of being well ranked in the way you would with a doorway page without having to visit an physical page and click through to the main site.
Does anyone see any major problem with this? I know SE don’t like frames because they can’t read them but given we wouldn’t have anything in the frame this shouldn’t be an issue should it?
I am now convinced that doorway pages are not the way forward to increase ranking. We are somewhat limited on placing links to our site so I am searching for options beyond optimisation of the actual site to increase ranking and this is the only one I have been presented with that seems viable. Any comments would be appreciated.
You are right we touched on it during the discussion on whether to use doorway pages or not, hence my conclusion not to use the doorway pages. However I am stuggling to understand the reasons that using a framed page that isn't seen but sends the user straight to the main site is not an option.
Whilst I can now produce what I believe to be a good case against doorway pages (thank you all for your input)I am do not seem to have an alternative other than this method. The mere mention of frames seems to bring up a red flag and I can understand why this would be so for the main site. I have been charged with finding ways of improving our listing and need to be able to explain why options that are presented to us are not, which is why I wondered if anyone could expand on the frame aversion, confirm that this method is indeed spamming or tell me that it's worth giving it a go and that they have done something similar....
Thanks Paynt, all printed and waiting to be digested, however I fear I'm now going to come back with a load of questions such as "What's a Meta Refresh?" Am guessing it isn't some isotonic beverage I should be looking out for at the Gym?
