(First: excuse my English... Im argentinian...)
My new site is on-line and Im trying to understund why its having problems with search engines. It has an iframe in several pages, including the homepage, and the content of those iframes is located in a directory excluded to robots indexing by the robots.txt file. This is because I dont wont them to index those poor-content pages. Could this be a problem? Could this make the homepage to be ignored or excluded by sear engines?
