*panting w/hands on knees*
I thought I bookmarked this forum *gasps for breath* but I didn't and was trying to remember the name, tried about 15 different urls and no luck, then just like that "search engine" popped into my head, but I couldn't remember the name, but luckily, my computer has the "auto complete" and all I had to do was scrolldown all the "web" entries..

Sorry I just had to share my joy in being able to find this place again, cause I was panicking.

OK to the questions, is I-frame search engine friendly? or it has the same problem as frames?

Also what does "index follow/nofollow" mean pls, I know it's telling robots to follow or not follow the index page but what does that really mean?

Thank u very much, and the site has now been bookmarked.

Welcome to webmasterworld second edition glad you found us again.

From my experience iframes seam to be a little better that standard frames and do tend to get indexed. To be honest I have only used this method a few times but have never had any problems having pages indexed.

Hopefuly someone else will reply with a lot more knowledge on this topic.

The page in the iframe is ignored. It is treated more or less like an image. The rest of the page is read like any other page. Much more SE friendly than a frameset.

More here:

Try using the search function if you need more info. There have been a lot of iframe discussions here.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but yes it tells thew spiders to follow to the next page, as well as each page with index to be indexed in the search engine.

Every page is a doorway to your site.

Hope this helps
