In terms of frames and/or new pop-up windows, I'm not a huge fan of either. I like to put on my consumer hat and think what my users would want. My logic is pretty simple… If I give my users a good experience, then I trust them to keep coming back to my site. If I treat my users like I've only got one shot at reaching them, then the likely outcome is that they will only visit my site once! J

Thanks Luther, the class was awesome. I was the one that talked to you at the end about framing. Is it better to have links on a website open in a new frame (window) or to have them open in the same page as my url. If I don't pop up a new window for hyperlinks, then the consumer leaves my main page and if they don't hit the back button, then I've lost them. What is the best way to work my website for the RE community? If you could look at my website and then the and let me know what is the best way for consumers, clients, bloggers and the search engines, I'd appreciate it. You can reply or call my cell (below) anytime. Thanks Dustin, I look forward to sending some business your way.
