Google Gives More Value to Links within iframe

The popular western SEO expert and author of the blog Seo-theory.com Michael Martinez published on High Rankings Forums a post that actually confirms the rumors about the fact that Google sees and transmits the value of links placed inside the iframe. Let us remember that “iframe” tag creates a floating frame which exists within a standard document allowing to upload any other independent documents into the space of the set sizes.

Michael said that he had held an independent experiment. For this purpose he created a page with a frame on one of his former sites. This site is well indexed containing high-quality external links, which, according to Martinez, should be reindexed in a short time. The author of the experiment noted that in the past few years the overall traffic on this site has become low, therefore it could be used for experiment without attracting undue attention.

The page with the frame contained a link to HighRankings.com with the following text in the anchor: “Jill Whalen says search engines crawl iframes”. As a result of this experiment Google could find this suggestion upon request with the search operator “inanchor:”. At the same time before the publication of experimental results and their reposting on other sites search operator “intext:” gave no results. The author of the experiment clarifies this to show that the phrase could be found by Google thanks to the indexed link rather than by the forum content on HighRankings.com. However, even now upon request with the search operator “intext:” this phrase may be found on other sites, but not on the forum HighRankings.com.

In response to Michael’s post about the experiment, the heroine of the query, a SEO expert Jill Whalen replied that on the example of her sites as well she noticed that Google indexes and recognizes the volume of links within the iframe, and added that, most likely, the search engine has only recently begun to handle frames in such a way.
