Basic Beginners Question

Threaded View

I have a page of the following BASIC structure:

<all required meta content>
<h1 header / image with alt tags>
<Page Introduction>


<Other Page Content>
<latest 5 news stories, update every day>
<sponsored search listings>

My question , the IFRAME simply holds an interactive form.  Should it still
be fairly easy to optimise this page, or will the IFRAME be penalised?  I
have no huge need to optimise the form itself, I need to know how Google
will treat the page with and without the IFRAME.

My guess is, it will simply ignore the contents of the Iframe, and count
everything else analysing the page?

Each page probably has 500 words of real text or so (Ignoring sponsored
search results), and at least 1 new news story being added per day.

Warm Regards,

This issue was very recently discussed. I believe that the conclusion was:
iframes do not get indexes. Someone please correct me if my memory betrays.

Sounds good enough. Make sure you do not use frames (or iframes) unless their
inclusion is vital.

Best wishes,
