Seo And Iframes
Posted 02 June 2009 - 12:33 PM
Are there any potential SEO drawbacks here, such as the search engines not being able to find the videos? I understand that these videos wouldn't make the greatest media entrants into Google's universal search however it is something we need to be careful of. Also, transcripts are being created for the video too but I am not sure if the text would be in the iframe as well.
Any input would be much appreciated!

You can code that page to make sure it's not a Parent window if you want, then redirect back to to the real page with the iframe inside of it if you want. Whether or not to do this sort of depends upon what the specifics are. The main issue being can users get back to your real site if they end up going directly to the iframe page.

Just the same as it's always been with frames and iframes.
For your API question, it's a bit too general to answer. With API's it depends upon the implementation, and there are different ways those can be constructed.
For instance, if the API uses only server side scripting (eg PHP, ASP, ColdFusion, etc) the all of the processing takes place before the content gets loaded in the page. So for all intents and purposes the search engines would see this API content as being part of the landing page on your domain, regardless of where the actual content comes from.
On the other hand, if the API used something like an RSS or XML feed from another location and this information appeared in the code, the location of the XML/RSS feed would get the credit.
I've got some tests running on this kind of thing to see if I can sort out where the line in the sand is for getting JS produced content to show up. But it's still pretty blurry at this point. I do still have about 40 or 50 things to test though.
