Are backlinks in iframes effective?
« on: 10-24-2016, 12:57:41 »
Hi everyone!

I wonder if backlinks to my site are effective if put into an iframe in another site.
Does Google penalize this technique? 

Thanks!

First, you have to know that Google does not like iframes, so that Google bot does not crawl any links in iframe for sure! Even if it does, nothing benefits.

I don't think it would ever be a backlink. Can you make it plain html?

You can also add a title to the iframe

frame src="mydomain.com/etc/something-here" title="something here"

That might do "something."

I just thought of something else. I am not even sure this would work.
In 1997, I remember that having nothis or nothat lines of html for certain
things that a person could turn off. Like javascript. There's no such thing
as <noiframe> I believe, so you would just get a blank line with nothing
loading.

However, I think if you put plain text/html after the iframe tag, that would
display IF the browser did not support iframes. That is, something like

<iframes> blah blah blah
Sorry! Nothing here
</ifrrame>

The line of text would only show if no support for iframes.

So one could, in theory, put an <a href there as well. And that would seem to
be seen as a link.

Now all you have to do is get your widget to put that line of code in there.

Of course this is all my theory, but it makes some sense.

The common theory is that Google can't read them properly...however they might count as backlinks... my html iframes were outranking my main pages in the early days of my website, which was undesirable for me, so I eventually moved my iframes inside javascript.

Iframes do pass link authority but not as much as direct links. I don't think that Google hates iframes, I have seen websites that had huge iframes and still continued to rank at the top. Also, I think for videos embeds which are essentially iframes are just as good as direct links.
