    Greetings
    SEMrush
    I have around 30.000 pages of content at the time, but i have ran in to some
    problems with managing the site, so i would like to make some big changes.

    Now, i was thinking about useing iframes for top, side and bottom menu. So
    that each page would call menus from external file. So if i need to change
    something, i could change it from one file and it would change it on all
    30.000 pages.

    Now how does this affect search engines? Do they have problems crawling
    the site, or is it ok? Also i have been thinking about doing it in PHP, but i
    prefer iframes cause im not so good at php.

    Thank for all input!

    Sir. Turhamuro

    I wouldn't recommend iframes or frames from an internal site link structure standpoint.

    SSI (Server Side Includes) is your most high performance option for storing everything in a single file. It's pretty easy syntax, but I don't know it off the top of my head.

    PHP is as simple as
    <? include('/path/to/mymenufile.html'); ?>
    Code (markup):
    and it is actually pretty quick for simple includes.

    I wouldn't recommend it. SE might not like it ( i'd bet they won't).

    Maybe i should do it in PHP then, cause i dont know anything about the
    SSI's. I think iframes are too risky then...
