    IFrames


    Hi,

    Does anyone know if search engines spider content in iframes or if it's wise to use iframes on a site?

    Thanks

    From what I understand, Google does spider iframe content, but not all search engine spiders do at this point...

    Yes, the most important SE's will spider the content and follow the links in your IFrames. In the past there was some trouble with these IFrames, but nowadays that's over. Nothing to worry about, you can just use them.
