Possible to write js....

 2:33 pm on Jul 26, 2001 (gmt 0)

Is there a way to use external js to write a 100% frameset? Will this work as an optimization tool?

It seems that you could start the external js with document.open() -- that would clear the original document from the browser window and establish a stream to a new document for your document.write() statements. Then write your frameset code with document.write(), and then use document.close(), so the frameset gets displayed on screen.

But I'm not seeing what SEO advantage might come from writing a 100% frameset, since any HTML in the 0% frame would be invisible to search engines. Wouldn't the final effect be the same as giving javascript enabled browsers a different flat page, with the 0% page being irrelevant to both humans and spiders?

Good point tedster...

I must admit....my mind is in the gutter. I'm talking about [size=6]SPAM[/size]..pure and simple.

I want to build a four or five page site that gives a good spider feast but redirects the users to an existing site.

Will this work this way or am I blinded by the pre-formed meatloaf goggles.

The prepackaged meat product fumes are getting to your brain, toolman. (Never heard of using it as goggles before... interesting idea) I thought <noframes> content was becoming less relevant to ranking pretty much across the board?

I guess what I am trying to do, however unethical, is to cheaply cloak the url. In other words the spiders eat five pages but not the js, so the users see the redirected site because the js wrote the frameset.

It'll probably work until 1 competitor comes along without javascript enabled and lets the SE's know about it.

Now I see -- you don't care about NOFRAMES content or the content of the 0% frame. The frameset is just to present a different domain altogether. Cheap stealth.

Yeah, I guess this will work for a while (until human observation kicks in, anyway, like ggrot said). Then the domain gets banned, and you start over, but what the hey! It's like selling your goods from the back of a van instead of renting a storefront.
