Dynamic Out? Links

Duplicate content?

If 'someothersite' links to my own site with the method above and the description for the url above in serps seems to be straight from my home page's no frames section is there any possiblilty that a search engine robot would mistakenly see this as duplicate content?

Does anyone NOT understand what I mean?

Point is, when doing search for my domain name, but like this "blue widgets", the first result is the one above but the serp description is taken from my own index page. So, is there any possibility that search engines would think 'duplicate'?

Having kind of a tough time envisioning what you are talking about :)

So you are linking to a site from a target frame and worried if the target and linked to site will be duplicate? I don't think so unless both the html tags and text is exactly the same.

No. out.php3?ID=902 is the way that 'someothersite' links to my site. Clicking the link takes you to a page that says 'you are now being forwarded to htt*//mysite.com', using meta refresh 1 second.

I'm wondering what the search engine is actually indexing. The page that the link is on, or the link itself, or the destination page (my site).

Again, in serps 'www.someothersite.com/directory/out.php3?ID=902' appears with text taken from my own index page as the serp description.

I have had this happen to me in ink and google. I wouldn't worry. It usually takes 1 or 2 updates to fall out. It is strange at first to see a cache of a dynamic offsite page to have your homepage on it. It is just a glitch in the index.
