    Default Java layer over a page?

    Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to add a layer (sort of like an iframe) over a certain page.. for example site.com is a wordpress blog, but when people visit it, they only see the the iframe that is in the java code. Like a java layer over a website.. If you need more explanation please let me know. Thank you.

    Yes this is possible but I'd try doing it as a browser extension/addon if I was you, Java might not be the way to go.

    Hmm... What you could do is have the iframe code in html, and then inside of that iframe, point to an address that only has the applet. I'm not exactly sure on the specifics of laying an iframe over existing content, but you could create a second iframe with the "hidden content" and use a javascript to switch between the two iframes as needed, creating an "illusion" of hiding the data beneath.

    I am running a WordPress Blog. I tried Iframing, but when I look in Google result pages, the description is the url of the iframed site. Which looks bad. Basically I want to have a blog with quality content, but when people visit the site, they see something different, kind of like iframe BUT with the content in the background for search engines. Java is the only thing I can think of that Google spiders cannot really read.

    EDIT: Sorry for the delayed response.

    Just my .02, but in case you have't, you should consider the consequences of doing something like this - the removal and ban of your site from search engines entirely. Its called 'black hat seo', and quite highly frowned upon. As far as I'm aware, flash and image content cannot be read by search engines - but this is not a conclusive statement.

    Yes I understand this, I do not think its blackhat, I consider it gray hat, and also this is for testing purposes. I like to learn and try new things, is this possible though? Thanks for your input.

    could you show us an example of what it is that google's showing (and what you want it to show)? Generally with blogs, you want people to be able to read (and thus, search for) the content. If you want to limit content access to a certain group of people, I would suggest using password protection (or something similar) and not sending the data from the server until they have validated their identity. Then have your iframe only show the content that was sent, otherwise have a generic iframe with default content that search engines (and unregistered users) can look through.
