A web partner recently *optimized* a site for us, it's a framed site URL snipped. I noticed that the actual content pages has had no work done on it - not even meta tags. They've only worked on the Frameset page (noframes content with links, meta tags etc.)
I may have got it wrong, but doesn't google and inktomi search frames and surely the content pages are the *priority* for optimization.
If anyone can clarify this it would be much appreciated.

Frames are tricky for SEs to navigate and so alternative methods of accessing the content pages are necessary.
The content pages need to be optimised as well - especially if the are being spidered.
All your pages can be found, but you need to do 4 things to make sure it works well.
1) Each one should be optimized well.
2) You should include navigation to the main areas of your site is case the page is found outside of the frames.
3) Possibly consider a script to pop your page automatically back into the frameset if it is found outside the set.
4) If you want real SE success start building your new site without frames ;)
too late for re-design, but we are looking at include files for non-frame usage in the future. Thaks about the content info - it was as i suspected then.
They actually told the robot not to follow the content pages - seems like madness to me, since they sold us on their SEO skills.
PS snipped - so i shouldn't put urls in the posts then.
Google now put less value on <NOFRAMES> tag or any 'less visible' content. So I try to avoid using frames unless absolutely necessary. The <IFRAME> can be very helpfull in many cases.
document.writeln('<frameset cols="25%,75%" BORDER="0" FRAMEBORDER="NO">')
document.writeln('<frame src="http://www.example.com/interior_page.html" scrolling=auto noresize>')
= No <noframes> tag :)
