Ken Ward's HTML Tutorial ...

No frames?

This is the code for a basic frames page;

<frameset cols="25%,*">

<frame name="contents" target="main" />

<frame name="main" />

<noframes>

<body>

<h1>

Welcome to my HTML Tutorial

</h1>

This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them. But don't worry, click here for a

<a href="Contents.htm">

non-frames version!

</a>

If your browser does support frames, and you are here by accident, then click here..

</body>

</noframes>

</frameset>

The part within the <noframes></noframes> tag is important as it is a link to your web pages for both the search engine spiders and those without frame capable browsers. It is rather silly to leave the standard message; 'This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them!' and leave the browser and the search engine spider high and dry! So use the above as a model.

Also remember, that each page within a frame needs links so that someone being sent to that page by the search engine can get back to frames and the rest of your site. How often have you found an interesting page with no links! The author did not think you would arrive there outside his frames!

Let's look at those unassuming but crucial Meta Tags!
