    What is known about how search engines treat iframes? There are sites that will display your page in return for a backlink in the niche I work in, but it's in an iframe. That brings traffic but will it bring link juice too? I see Majestic counts it as a link or seems to, from what I've read Google can crawl these iframes whereas Bing doesn't but is that still true?

    It makes sense if it does, if someone includes your page in theirs it could be taken as a sign your page has some sort of value. Cool.

    What, again?

    What I want to know is if you or anyone has any actual evidence to support the answer one way or the other. I read that Googlebot will crawl an iframed page, in fact I've even seen Googlebot hit my page which was iframed on another site, and the only reason I knew that was because the Googlebot had the containing URL as the HTTP_REFERER, which is the only time I've ever seen it show a referrer. BUT, does it count it as a backlink? My guess is it would treat it a bit like someone hotlinking one of your images, but it's only a guess.

    to answer your question,

    yes but its not powerful as a href tag, ask matt cunt if you want, even img src tag the link juice will flow to the external domain
