Using HTML Frames within a Web Site

Frames can either compliment a web site or make it look unprofessional.

If you must use frames, use them sparingly. If not used properly, frames can make your content very difficult to view.

Avoid making your visitors have to scroll from side to side to view your content. This can be very irritating and cause your visitors to leave and never return.

Consider using small borderless frames at the top or bottom of your page that blend in with the rest of your web site.

In addition, try to only use a couple of framesets. A web site divided up into several frames not only looks bad, but is also very difficult to view and navigate.

In addition, web sites using frames are very difficult for the Search Engines to index.

If you must use frames, offer your visitors a choice -- Frames verses no frames.
