Framed Site With-in A Site
Posted 16 June 2011 - 04:35 PM
I ran into this site when I got a request from another site asking if they could do this on their site too and gave me this example ( p1bc.com/forum.htm) . Which shows a forum in a framed window.
Should I insist on them to take it down or let them both have at it and call it a good easy promotion? never really dealt with framed pages.
Did a few searches and really couldn't come up with anything as far as how it relates to SEO.
My first thought was dup content...but the url in the frame is the original website...which leads me to believe it may not be considered dup content. Is there any link value there?

Now, I'm not quite sure what you're saying in regards to their request, but in general, if you imagine that the framed site was nothing more than a black hole on the page, you'd have the equivalent of what value it holds to the page.

I had another site request the same thing (wanting to put this forum on their site in the same way) I think they got the idea from this p1bc site. Their request is how I discovered it. So I guess I shouldn't worry about it then...right?

---basically hotlinking entire pages rather than merely images. This was the then equivalent of bot scraping: steal content and surround it with ads.
---as an 'authentic' entry point for XSS, phishing and other attacks.
Browsers and some add-ons are more aware of this hazard plus many sites added 'frame busting' scripts or similar.
Not saying that the above apply to those sites you mention behaviour but I would be extremely wary.

Will put them in competition with you for long tail traffic.
