[Solved] SEO Question (iframes & sliders)

  • # February 10, 2010 at 8:51 pm

    I have build a website with a the content in a coda slider, is this bad for SEO?
    I also have some light boxes that use an iFrame do display content held in other html files. I don’t want the search engine to link people to these pages however I do want them to get indexed and point users to the index.html.

    Need some guidance some… I know very little about SEO so if anyone know some good websites on this subject let me know.

    Website in question:

    Thanks guys!

    Isn’t it a simple solution? Just use server side includes and not iFrames.

    How anyone considers using iFrames on a website anymore baffles me.

    The slider isn’t a bad thing, as all of the content is (should be) displayed as perfectly semantic html, so no worries there.

    No problemo. There are also PHP includes as well which will accomplish the same job but you’d have to change the file extensions to .php.
