Description

The page uses a <frameset> element, which does not have a <noframes> tag. The <noframes> tag is used for browsers that do not handle frames. It is also used by search engine crawlers when they index the page.

Recommendation

To prevent this violation, add a <noframes> tag inside of the <frameset> element. For example:<frameset cols='25%,50%,25%'> <frame src='frame_a.htm' /> <frame src='frame_b.htm' /> <frame src='frame_c.htm' /> <noframes> Accurate and descriptive keywords that represent the page content </noframes></frameset>

These violations are from the Bing SEO Toolkit, and are the same violations that Bing finds when crawling the internet, it is a safe bet that Google would find much the same violations.

"exactly the same as the crawler of the search engine will see it"
