Hi Jackdad ~
The reasons your description shows as the redirection information,
"Your browser does not have the features required for you
to be taken automatically to the site you're looking for,
so you need to follow this link"
Is simply because that's all you have ON the page besides your frames information.
The description is usually taken from relevant content on your site,
and rarely from the description metatags. The fact that you are
ragging your 'real' site, that is,
into a frame on the wonderlandheights.com site is considered to be
"spam" by Google, so you're really lucky it's listed at all. I
wouldn't expect it to remain so, as Google has been dropping such
sites from their index by the thousands.
Google specifically warns against the use of frames in its "Reasons
your site may not be included",
"Google supports frames to the extent that it can. Frames
tend to cause problems with search engines, bookmarks,
emailing links and so on, because frames don't fit the
conceptual model of the web (every page corresponds to
a single URL). If a user's query matches the site as a
whole, Google returns the frame set. If a user's query
matches an individual page on the site, Google returns
that page. That individual page is not displayed in a
frame -- because there may be no frame set corresponding
to that page."
and the use of such redirects and text in its "Quality Guidelines -
"* Don't employ cloaking or sneaky redirects.
* Don't create multiple pages, subdomains, or domains
with substantially duplicate content.
* Avoid "doorway" pages created just for search engines,
or other "cookie cutter" approaches such as affiliate
programs with little or no original content."
Google warns that you may be permanently removed from its index for
using these techniques in other reasons your page may not be listed,
"We will not comment on the individual reasons a page was
removed and we do not offer an exhaustive list of
practices that can cause removal. However, certain actions
such as cloaking, writing text that can be seen by search
engines but not by users, or setting up pages/links with the
sole purpose of fooling search engines may result in permanent
removal from our index..."
The simple solution is to either develop the domain site,
www.wonderlandlights.com, with its own separate content or to list the
site that actually contains the content (your tesco.net pages) with
Google's search engine. The fact that you haven't been penalized for
the practice yet is no indication it won't happen in the future. Why
take the chance?
You might want to become familiar with the guidelines and requirements
Google offers site owners in order to be included in its index.
Remember, Google's responsibility is to the searcher, not the website
owner. If the site owner wants his site included, it is incmbant on
him to understand what will work, and then to produce his site
Webmasters who follow the guidelines and avoid Google's "Thou shalt
nots" usually have no problem getting listed and showing up under the
search terms they desire.
