Iframes and SEO

Lets discuss about impact of ifames on SEO.

Well.. using iframe is not going to hurt your SEO as well as not going to benefit. Because the Iframe page will be indexed individually in the search engines. More clearly the user may experience the difference, he will see all the page as one, but search engines will not index a page including the iframe content. They will consider those two pages as different pages and shows in the Search Engine Result Pages. For example

Lets consider a page "" has iframe in the source and that iframe src = "". The "sub.html" alone will be shown in the SERP's but not along with "main.html" page.

Lets look at the live example

the page has iframe.

If you observe the code you can see the iframe src.

"<iframe src="" height="600" width="840" scrolling="auto" ><iframe>"

check the google cached version of that page and click on "Text-only version" in the right top of the google cache you can not find the iframe content in the text only version of cached page.

let us see the SERP's. Since it is .au domain lets us consider the and let us pick on key phrase "Polypropylene document wallets" which is from the iframe content.
search the key phrase on you can find the in the SERP's but not So the user will the see different page design from your website design which we didn't expected where you think iframes causing the harm to SEO which is not true. Iframes neither harms nor benefits.
