    Please tell us this is not true! We have arranged framed forwarding of a domain name for a client's site with www.dnscentral.com. We have submitted twice now to many search engines and not one has listed it. www.inishowen.ie. Is the site being overlooked or rejected because of the forwarding service? Is this because of frames? What do we do (in detail please) to remedy this? Apart from going to new host!
    Thanks.

    Most engines have problems with frames. since your site is doing it twice it could and probably does cause problems. i'd find another route.

    Probably both. There is so much competition on the internet now that using such tactics won't really get you anywhere. you amy see some of your competitors doing it, but they ay just be old listings that haven't been filtered out yet. Go to http://www.searchenginewatch.com for more inforomation.

    thanks for all the advice. what we have concluded is that it is better to go with a professional hosting company. We will steer clear of forwarding services from now on.
