Hello everybody:

I,ve got two questions about how google works with:

- iframes: My website <edit> have this structure:

A home page with a little text about the site, and a flash movie.

Then, when you enter, it have a pop up, and all the information of the site works with iframes (you click a link, and then it charges an iframe on the same pop up).

Well, I donīt know if googles is friendly with this kind of design.

- My site have this tags < body topmargin=0 leftmargin=0 scroll="no"> , and my question is

** if I put text and external links very deeper from the top (invisible for 1024 x 860 resolution , because I dont have scroll bars and it's not in the visible area of the screen, but in the page, not with negative position, that I know Itīs an old trick and not good) what will hapen?

Google detects that kind of trick?

Could be useful for putting hidden links and text, or I will banned?

Thanks a lot!

Thank you very much

Welcome to the forums. (sorry, to prevent spam, we refrain from posting our own sites as examples).

Yes, Google will detect it, but not in the way you think. They will index the external content as a stand alone file.

Happy New Year, and tnx for the welcome!


Thank you very much!

And what do you think about the scroll=no and putting optimized code out of the visible window (in most common resolutions, of course)?

Note: I'm not talking about negative margins, because I've learn here that it would banned my site...

Any invisible text can get you banned. Particularly if they report you manually and you are inspected by one of them ... (what do you call them again?) ... humans :)

See www.google.com/contact/spamreport.html

Hidden text fits the bill nicely. NoScroll may already incur a penalty or Google may ignore the words in the file and use only the obviously visible text if you do this (probably only the title would then be used).

Tnx a lot!

... I like the no-scroll because itīs more 'cool'...

I'd try to respect the design, and I'll hope not to be penalized... Do you know if anyone talk about no-scroll in the past in the forum?

Tnx again... :)
