Google on iframes with frame jammer

 12:31 pm on May 9, 2003 (gmt 0)

I hope someone will get his experience on this one. We're re-constructing a website and will be using i-frames. i'll make a sitemap for proper indexing by Google. on the page factors optimized. So far so good.
We will add a frame jammer for the 'right design' when a separate page will be clicked in the serps (if it shows up high enough ;) but the url that will be constructed is like: domain-name.com/index.htm?url-of-found-page.htm

This doesn't show the right title of the specific content page but the title of the main iframe page where the content page loads in.

Will this be an o.k. situation or will this be seen as cloaking for example (I wouldn't think so for the user gets the page it wants in the design it is meant to be).

I ask anyway!

I've had frame jammer [or similar java script solution] on a site for well over a year, no problems yet with the SE's.

I have a site that I am trying to help out that uses frames. What is the best script to use to make sure that a page does not get loaded with out its frame set.

>What is the best script

I don't know.

I use Dreamweaver, there is a free extention to deal with the orphan frames issue, free is good.

We have sites using I-Frames but put the javascript "jammer" in a .js file rather than have it sit on the page.
It fact, it's buried in with a number of other javascript functions included in a common .js file called in from every page on the site. (Other functions such as window.onerror, etc.)

It depends on whether you have a large site with numerous pages that you want inside a frameset or if you have a few pages that might be called from outside their frameset.

I can give you the code for either/both.

the site has about 25 pages

and need to make sure all of them are in the frameset

what do you think?

Are you using html, asp or php?

Possibility 1:

Requires a separate frameset page for every page you want called in.
5 pages would need 5 frameset pages to go with them.

Possibility 2:

Frameset page understands a passed content page location and uses javascript to dynamically write the frameset page instead of having framset page for each.

Your choice.

Should this thread be removed to a different forum or dealt with via sticky mail with the individual requiring help?
