Hi everybody. This is a great forum.

Well, somedays ago I asked if the no-scroll html tag would have any effect on google.

The answer was: 'probably google ignore the content and only will index the title'

Well, I've submit the url to google few days ago, and now it appears but with no deeper crawl and google have not indexed any keyword or nything on my site except the url, the domain.



I know that if this is a new site, maybe this could be only a first and fast 'crawled', but Im asking about things:

- Does The iframe affect to the content indexed (the html in the iframe is only flash music, its not hidden contet or similar)? (the iframe is just the first thing in the page)
- Does the popup affect to google, not indexing the content inside the popup?

- Does the no-scroll affected to my site? That's because google haven't indexed ANY word in my site? (including the title of the window)

for your first question take a look at this thread [webmasterworld.com].

popups are not indexed because the spider does not interprete any javascript.

no-scroll is not important. i gues you've got a frameset and this frameset has no title or the title untitled document. that's then your mistake. google just shows what it got.

Tnx a lot for the reply.

I haven't frames, only layers and iframes.

I think that maybe the scroll="no" is the reason...

I've removed the tag and I've aplied a css style that makes the background colour and the scroll bars colors the same.

The effect is the same that scroll="no" for humans (with IE 5.5...)

I had tried to put a layer very down, with a "top" position big and without scroll bars, the text was hidden for humans in most resolution windows... I hope it will work
