I'm at a loss. I have a pretty good site that gets an "excellent" rating in the web site gargage/inspector, etc. I am listed on Yahoo, but I need to get listed everywhere else and can't. I have been submitting to Alta Vista about once a week or two and have been ignored by them and everyone else. Is there a secret? I read and research and try everything suggested. Is everything just at a stand still right now? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Stephanie http://www.lingeriemonthly.com
OK, now I'm really confused. All this time I thought I knew what frames were...I guess I don't and I didn't think I had any on my pages. I know about that rule of thumb. I tought myself HTML from books and maybe missed the concept of frames. Please tell me what exactly on my pages constitutes a frame and I will remove them right away! Thank you.
Clean out your cache and point your browser to your site on the Internet. Veiw the source code. You, hopefully will see the same thing I saw, a frameset page.
After doing a whois query, I find that your domain is hosted at MyDomain.com and that your content is actually on a Geocities server. This gives the average visitor the idea that all of your documents and images on on your own server. When you surf your site, does your address bar change depending on what page you are on? It doesn't. This is accomplished by using frames.
Consider moving your site to a host that will let you put all of your own documents and images on one server, under one domain. Since you are trying to make money selling products, I'd really recommend not using a free host, as those pop up banners might give people the wrong impression.
I thought that frames were splitting a single web page into separate panes. And I htought you had to put a <FRAMESET> attribute in your page to have it. I don't understand how I can have frames if I did not put it there, also I did not see <FRMAESET> in my source code as you had suggested.
It appears that your domain name host is placing you content inside of a frame page so that your visitors don't see that the content is comming from geocities. This is what I saw when I looked at the source code: (you must view the source from ther file menu. right clicking and choosing view source won't show you what is going on.
