We have a website with video content delivered from a video studio and hosted on their site since we don't want to load our server with it. The content we are embedding is payed for and we don't to rank the videos (since they are hosted elsewhere and we embed them) but to rank our posts with the videos in them.
The pages in the website aren't just with the embedded videos, it has a brief review of the video inside it also.
Explanation of the concept and construction:
Site example.com has an iframe:
Inside the file steve.html which is under the same domain example.com
there are the meta tags:
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX"> <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOFOLLOW">
And in the body there is another iframe video embed code from the external website.
Now my questions are:
Is this considered cloaking?
Would we be better off without the nofollow/noindex as now Google cant see the iframed content and where the video iframe is in Google eyes appears a big nothing?
Edit to clarify it a bit here:
We have a post Example.com/review Inside it there is an iframe (example.com/iframespace with no follow/noindex) inside this iframe (example.com/iframespace) there is another iframe of the video embed code.
Would the iframe with the nofollow/noindex affect the post example.com/review which contains the iframe?
