Frontpage 2001 and Google
Can I use the new features for google seo

 10:07 am on Jul 7, 2002 (gmt 0)

I have taked a look at the new frontpage2001 program and have seen some new features where you can make arrows, circle, text box and more and if I look at the html for those thing alot of it in <-- text --> and some of the codes I dont know.

The question is what can google read and what not, that could be important when you dont what all links to be read by google, then you dont have to use flash or javescript.

You're probably referring to FrontPage 2002 or FrontPage XP or FrontPage 10 (all the same thing). There is no FrontPage 2001. ;)

The stuff FrontPage puts in <-- text --> are usually things that the WYSIWYG editor uses to present you with a close approximation of what you'll see in the final results. In the regular HTML it comes out as comments.

If you're talking about the drawing elements of FP 2002, I believe they're dependent on FP server extensions...but don't quote me on that as I don't have FP 10 on this machine. Generally I'd advise staying away from those things. If you avoid FP server extension dependent components like Themes you will be a lot happier in the end.

Off topic a bit here but...
I was using FP for a while then installed suse linux...some great html toys for you to play about with there... You should get yourself some :)

It is frontpage 2002 sorry, I thought about maybe user there arrows as links, but I will not use anything els I dont trust it to be seen by every visitor with different browser, the linux stuff I have never tryed anything from them yet.

The stuff between <-- and --> is interpreted by the FronPage Server Extensions that run on the host and should be ignored by Googlebot.

Is their a particular extension you have using the <!--comments--> ?

It sounds like your new to FP mack, you might wanna try something that'll get yer mouth watering IMO ;) getting you into dynamic content

Either go to Insert > Database results or go to templates and go to Database Interface Wizard.....and get yourself into the realm of dynamic info (not bad for FP eh) ;)

That is the only "FP-ish" thing I use on the program.......but you can alter the HTML due to it being a FP component.....but you can alter the VB script used to generate the database component.......the point being its a good place to play around and learn, while also getting to grips with FP.

FP XP has a few good things that its' predecessors did not have.

/oops, the original topic....

check out the source code of your pages on server side....there are some things that FP generates you can/should remove otherwise its just HTML and text editing....where google see's your source code just as it would with any other site made with another prog

yep to be honest i have been using Fp for about a year and I do actualy like it (did you hear that pin drop) I just wanted to try something different... The machine I am on just now is win xp ans has FP installed on it and I will be keeping it... My other old machine was running win 98 so I did a partion install of suse linux and I love it...Not as graphical as xp but very very stable and pretty easy to get to grips with..so I have been messing about with some of the toys it has to offer....will still be using fp for quick jobs etc...but have an option of a change now :)
