Re: gateway frames

It's not quite that simple Bob. Most search engines weigh your pages by more than just a list of keywords. Many take into account the number of words, the text included in the href="" and alt="" tags, and the hyperlinked text itself. Some even look for an overall theme in your pages. I have been using doorway pages with some success. While the pages aren't the same layout as the rest of the site, I did use the same colors and fonts, but I just use the gateway pages to check for a Flash player ver. 4 and load them up with "keyword rich" text. Sometimes you dont even see the text and images on the pages because the Flash detect script takes users straight to the Flash movie or an error page.

this is an example of my doorway page, I have just started working with it and it got me to the first page in Alta Vista, Yahoo (web pages), MSN, AOL, and sometimes HotBot, Lycos. I hope for better results...on better keywords when I have time to do more.
