Your link displays in their "frame"

 6:16 pm on Mar 13, 2008 (gmt 0)

I have a link to my site, but it shows up in the frame of their site. In other words, when you click on my link it doesn't take the user to my site, but shows my site in a frame. And of course, my url doesn't show in the address line because the user never really leaves their site.

It seems to me that SE's would not see this as a link to me. Would anyone agree? Thanks!

It depends on the exact implementation as to whether the SEs are able to see and follow the link or not. Either way, it's generally considered to be not quite nice practice to frame other people's pages. You might want to look around for a simple frame braker script to place on your pages to stop this from happening.

Wow, that's a great idea. A frame breaker script? I'll look now. BTW, is it cool to put the url of the site so people can see the example? Thanks!

Thanks for the great tip. It worked and is very cool!

Below is what I did:

<script type="text/javascript">
if (top.frames.length > 0)

Installation Instructions:

Paste the HEAD Section code from above between the <head> and </head> tags on your page.

yup frame buster scripts are the way to go for sure!
