    So I've made my boss a website. It's finally coming up on Google as the first result, but only the mainFrame.

    Okay...so the website is www.99westcustoms.com

    When Google'd, home.html pops up, instead of index.html. When you follow the Google link, it takes you to home.html, where there's no navbar, title logo, etc. I put in an html navbar on the bottom for the meantime, but I want to have it set up so that when someone opens home.html from Google it goes to index.html.

    It also needs to work with the navbar. When a user clicks "Home" on the navbar, I need it to open home.html, and not the whole site. I tried the meta redirect thing and when I'd click on "Home" the whole site would open in the mainFrame...no good! haha

    Thanks fellas! :wavey:

    you used a frameset :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:


    That's the prob. Every time a user goes to your site it loads the nav frame ONCE and the content frame is what google is actually indexing. I recommend you re-design that site using standards at least mildly acceptible in this decade (no frames).
