    I got some great advice from you guys about using SSI's for my repetitive left and right nav bar problems, but I havent seen any searches since i changed it.

    Does SSi's hurt the search engine rating? Most ofmy content is in the main body and not on the SSI's

    the SSI's are just my navbars basically -- www.patriotreview.com

    thanks for any help.

    No. SSI Stands for SERVER-SIDE includes. That makes them invisible to the client. Webcrawlers are clients.

    right, thank you but would it affect the stuff in my main window? the stuff that is not an SSI ?

    I.E. -- Index.shtml is a page that has content in the center, and loads up leftbar.shtml (SSI) and rightbar.shtml in their respective places.

    I can see how left and rightbars will not be seen, but WILL THIS AFFECT my main content from being read by web crawlers?

    That's not what I mean (sorry for the ambiguity).

    The web crawlers see it all as one page. What they don't see is the fact that the three pages are pasted together.

    SSI's will actually improve your search engine positioning over framesets.

    SWEET!

    It seems like my site got noticed real quick by google, then recently after i changed it a bit and put the ssi's in I am not getting any hits and the newest changes are not showing up on the search engines.

    I resubmitted it after the changes, did I maybe do it too many times and made google mad at me?

    thats the worst thing on Earth, an angry google. scary.

    google doesn't like you spamming like that. It will automatically crawl your site again and reindex the new pages, but it takes time

    If you do try to deceptively get into Google by massively submitting or otherwise, it will actually blacklist you and intentionally not list you. Submit once, then wait, possibly for months. It will eventually come.

    well I hope that isnt what happened, I didnt SPAM it or at least I dont think I did, I made some major changes and resubmitted it (albeit within a month of the original time)...

    hrmph, well worst case scenario sounds like they will get around to relisting me??? is that correct?

    You've got to wait for google to reindex. It took 6 weeks for my site to get on there and the pages are cached so google only changes its 'opinion' of your site after each index.
