How To IFrame A CPA Offer

46 replies
I get this question all the time and it's really very simple. First find an offer you want to promote from a cpa network. Grab your affiliate link and then open up notepad, (I use editplus II but to each his own). Paste the following code into a blank notepad file:

Code:
<!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">
<html>
 <head>
  <title> Your Primary Keyword </title>
  <meta name="keywords" content="keyword1, keyword2, keyword3">
  <meta name="description" content="keyword description goes here">
 </head>

 <body>
  <iframe src ="http://your-affiliate-link.com" width="100%" height="100%">
  <p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>
  <p><a href="http://your-affiliate-link.com">Click here now.</a></p>
</iframe>
 </body>
</html>
You can also adjust the iframe by using the references on this page:

HTML IFRAME TAG

Save that notepad file as whatever file name you want, (preferably your primary keyword), example: primary-keyword.html

Now upload that file to your domain using your ftp program, (I prefer flashfxp for this).

When you point to that file on your domain, you have now iframed the offer. So say your domain is: http://www.your-domain.com

Then in adwords your destination url would be:

http://www.your-domain.com/primary-keyword.html

That's all there is to it.

      Great advice imho.
      I use maxbounty, neverblue, hydra, and too many others to list....perhaps I just don't generate enough revenue for them to 'bend the rules', but this is generally frowned upon and have yet to find a CPA network that will allow this.

      I would definitely agree with checking w/ your AM before you do this.

        Maxbounty has no problem with a 100% iframe, they have a problem for Partial iframes. Most offers will let you know in the description whether or not you can iframe the offer. If you are unsure, it is best to get with your affiliate manager.

    Hi PPC Coach,

    First, I appreciate the info.

    Second, I am really new to CPA Affiliate Mktg so I was hoping you could help me with one question. Do I need set up the iframe through dream weaver or some other web design software? I believe I do but I honestly have no clue. I see the code and what I need to enter within in, I'm just a little lost as to what I need to put that code within (ie: web design software) or not and once there, where do I put it.

    I really appreciate any insight you could give me with this.

    Thanks and all the best!

      Actually you can literally use the program windows notepad. You definitely don't need dreamweaver or anything like it.

      Then you have to ftp it to your web host somehow which is different for each web host. Good luck.

    It appears that affiliates who use iframe will eventually get caught up by merchants. It's really no point losing a good offer for pennies.

      Think of it like a web browser embedded in a web page. It allows you to load another web site and within the body of YOUR website to make it look as if it is part of the content of your site.

      Hope this helps,

        I could be wrong here, so maybe some of the experts here can correct me if so, but I think the easiest way to 'iframe a cpa offer' is to use your domain registrar. Just choose the 'masked forwarding' option under the DNS settings. I think this is how they do it.
        Of course, this would only apply to the entire domain, and not a specific page within a domain.

          Just FYI- Basically a iframe allows one to insert/embed an html document (a portion of another website) into one's own web page. Hence the "frame" analogy.

          Whereas, masking and forwarding a domain just sends the visitor to the other site and the visitor doesn't stop on any of your webpages.

      I wouldn't worry so much about Yahoo and MSN, I would worry more about what your CPA Network and Advertiser thinks about it.

      Most networks and many advertisers disallow iFraming for all offers. If you have juice with the network they might let it slide but you're risking commisssions.

      iFraming just gives them one more way to avoid having to pay you.

        Very true, it's always best to check with the network, get something in writing and then you're safe if they agree to it.

          Some very good information on this thread. Thank you especially PPC-Coach. A fellow student at a seminar recently explained to me how to iFrame a CPA offer, but they left out the part about the extra code which was provided by PPC-Coach. I knew there was something more to embed in the text file/folder to make this work.

          I am curious as to why the cpa networks or advertisers would have any issues with 100% iFraming. To me it seems very similar to direct linking or redirecting, without of course really doing those things. I wonder if there is any way to cloak your affiliate url in the source code, gonna play with that a bit.

          Thanks again all for the information.

    i don't have enough posts to pm so I'll have to leave a comment here.

    I came across your thread on how to iframe an offer. I was wondering how one would frame a 2 page offer with say a zipcode submit on the first to select a city, st, and zip on the second. I was trying to use godcpa and since I'm new to this, the docs weren't that clear on iframing the seconde page. Rather than help me, the author suggested I purchase his newest version which is $330.00 right now which I don't have. I'm having to learn as I go with js, php and my limited html knowledge. any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

      Using GodCPA to fraudulently iframe the submit area of a merchant's landing page will get your affiliate network account terminated. When you do that, you are basically stealing from the merchant and neither they, nor the network has any tolerance for that.

      To the other posters on this thread, 100% iframing is perfectly fine at MaxBounty unless the campaign description specifically prohibits it.

        I'm still confused about the difference between 100% iframing vs. partial iframing. Does 100% mean it's ok to put my aff. link within an iframe so the visitor gets redirected to the merchants landing page?

    I personally haven't had any affiliate managers who wouldnt let me do 100% framing. Speak with your AM via chat or email to make sure they are okay with it so you have recourse. Most networks dont like partial framing because it is often used with blackhat techniques and result in bad leads, but as long as you are playing within the posts and get something in writing from your AM, I wouldnt worry too much.

    Note that frames, iframes and other mechanisms that dynamically include content in user agents are subject to more restrictive third party cookie limitations particularly when the third party site lacks a suitable P3P policy header.

    In other words you're more likely to lose tracking on conversions when you iframe.

    Kyraline, most aff. managers are ok with you iFraming 100% of the merchant offer.

    They however have a problem with it if you frame only the (for example) email / or zip field and submit button. Most of the time if they find someone doing that (partial IFraming) the affiliate is using his own salespage and often incentivesing the visitor to put his info into the field in order to get something for free. Therefore, partial iFraming is often not allowed. Some merchants actually employ frame breakers in order to prevent this from happening.

    I frame is a way to display the page and content from the affiliate site using your own keywords and their landing page. It is quick and easy to the point of not having to develop a site from scratch. They can be used to test markets without the hard work or use Cost per lead pages so you send them to the offer.

    Like said above you can lose some conversions but I would only use them to test markets IMHO. Iframes have slap written on them.. IMHO.

  • Profile picture of the author Thumoney
    One thing is important to mention while iframing: IE has problems with iFrames and Third Party Cookies. I had an offer where you could not submit away from the first page. So nobody (with IE = 80% of users) could complete the offer.

    So please check if the iframed offer works in IE, otherwise you may throw money out of the window.

    Google on "iFrame IE cookies" to find more about it.

    yes, talk with your affiliate managers. If you are doing 100% iframing they wont mind nearly as much. If you are doing some sketchy low percentage iframing normally blackhat type stuff, be prepared for non payment of commissions.

  • Profile picture of the author Kenster
    some AMs dont mind 100% iframing because you can say you have a good domain name that looks legit and you want to keep that domain name up when visitors see your offer. Many people get scared off when they see a long messy affiliate domain, so having your simple .com can increase conversions and AMs know that. This is when iframing is better than a simple redirect that many people do. Especially when you are doing larger traffic numbers, this can make a large difference.

    Partial iframing is like when you only frame the email submit part of the offer page and then have your own content. Users fill in their email address not knowing that the submit portion is actually a different page framed. Used a lot for blackhat type stuff, but not always.

      Hi tami9191 ,

      Not is not a sidebar code nor a widget. iFraming is actually used for Frame other website's page to your own site. Let me explain more, you have seen frames in a photo like similarly iFrames will frame other website's page ( your aff link ) to your own website . to that visitor will think it is your site but the reality should that that will be your aff link :-) you can easily adjust the iFrames size .
