no frames and meta tags
My pet project is a framed site. A google search brings up the pointer to the 'main' frame. (Fortunately, I've included a rudimentary navigation system in the main pages).
A google search used to bring up the "Your browser doesn't support frames" blurb, but now it's bringing up the content of the main page (which is Ok, I guess).
I've read that search engines can't index framed sites, but google seems to be doing okay by me.
Is google getting smarter? Or could it be my cache is being read by google and giving me skewed results.
Nothing in the frameset document's meta tags seems to be doing anything, and there are no meta tags in the 'main' page.

Nothing strange, it still cannot read/follow frames, but it spidered you main page so it uses that.
The spiders tend to follow links, and take good guesses at index pages, so it probably found it by luck .

Put the links and content you want spidered in your no frames tag...there is no excuse for letting the world see"your computer does not support frames"Ann/nitewing

That was going to be my next question....
Is it OK to put some narrative about the site within the noframes tags instead? Would that be used by Search Engines? Or just links?

You can put whatever you like in there, probably more the better.
