>What are the reasons frames are bad for site promotion?

A "normal" site can have one listing for each page on the site.
A framed site has only one URL and therefore can only get one
listing, which usually only contains frame info (no keywords).

There are countless workarounds, but none can match not having
frames in the first place. Next, you'll point to some famous site
and ask why they're using frames. Answer: because they're not
interested in search engine placement, since they have thousands
of dollars to spend on other promotion, like TV advertising and
banner campaigns.

This topic has been discussed many times at great length in
previous months on this board. Just search for "frames".
