Why Cloaking is Always a Bad Idea

Well GD, if cloaking is defined as serving different content to humans and spiders,
the spiders access to the links are ensured by links in the noframes section of the frames file (and I get pretty good results on the SE's), so that's not a problem .
…what you suggest WOULD actually lead to cloaking. Here is why:
a technique to wrap a page into frames can never be cloaking. The page in your
'mainframe' is the same page as the stand alone page. Therefore neither the JS method
or the PHP methods are cloaking.
The problem you describe about always getting the welcomepage when you wrap a
page in frames is easyly handled. I did not show the specific code but obviously
your redirection url will include something like
A script in frame.htm will then look for the '?frame=' phrase and do the needed things.
In PHP you also code the corect file name into the frame template. Same thing, no laughts .
When I used frames (in the old days), I did this sort of redirect without any problems.
Now a days I do not use frames (if it can be avoided) and I opt for CSS techniques
This said just to state that i am not endorsing frames at all.
