Msg#: 658 posted 3:03 pm on Dec 8, 2000 (gmt 0)


I am running a website built with frames : I have put a redirect javascript on each pages to redirect them to the main page.
How will react the spiders with this javascript?Will they index the page with this javascript or not?

Thanks in advance for your help

Some will, but many won't -- if the redirect is right on the HTML page. It's better to call an external .js file for the redirect.

The abuse of all kinds of redirect has made many SEs refuse to include any page that redirects the visitor. Unfortunately, this spam-busting decision also hurts sites with very legitimate redirects, such as yours.
