    I understand the problem with frame sites and the difficulties of spidering. Seems to me like a bit of trash as the personal search on my site can easily handle this situation. I tend to put a secondary navigational system on the actual content pages with the hope that this may solve the problem. One question though, when using Frontpage 2000, if this secondary navigation is a shared border will the search engines still pick up the links to the other pages?

    Thanks

    This is a wierd one.

    Shared borders are included files, that is, the file is actually added to the page when it's rendered.

    It's like a frame, but isn't, in that the end user only sees one HTML file and not several.

    The shared border though, *is* a seperate file, so it might not be spidered.

    What we need to know really then, is whether or not included files (like links added to a page using SSI) can be spidered. I think they can, cos the code is added whilst it's on the server and not while it's on the clients machine.

    Does that at least make the question easier?

    My understanding is that SSI calls, as well as "shared borders" in Frontpage will be successfully spidered by a search engine.

    Since the server pieces together the called files *before* spitting out the completed page, the search engine will never know that the pages were "shared" or SSI or whatever.

    Make sense?

    - Why pay more? $8.95 domains & $9.95 SSL certificates!

    Thanks everyone,

    This does make sense, I'll assume that everything works the way I have planned.

    So now abondend Frame and support ssl.

    Notice: Your server must allow ssl.
    Also some file needed to change if you run into trouble. From .html to .shtml that's in my server.
