Hi, I'm wondering the consequences of performing SEO to an iframed domain.
We have had a proposal from a design company who want to outsource their SEO to another company, but I bought up a few concerns with my boss.
Their system is a weird setup, not in a bad way from a design point of view, it gives them good control, but for SEO it could cause a problem.
Basically they build all of their clients sites from one big CMS based on one domain and iframe their clients branded domain to the index page in another location, so basically their clients have just one page cached in Google and the rest of the content on is on another url. They seem to do this with all of their clients and all of their clients content in on one domain.
I was wondering how Google treats iframed domains and SEO? They are pointing to unique content on another domain and it is not something I have performed in the past and I am sceptical to start work on the domain in case something bad happens (panda, etc) as surely it would be treated as a one page website, i.e:- a thin website?
