    What exactly is iframe and why would i want to use this on my site? Is it for clickbank type products or cpa? Can someone show me an example?
    I searched this forum and google, but cannot find a plain old explanation of what it is exactly.

    An iframe is a html element that allows a html document (web page) to be embedded inside the the main document (just another web page). The iframe element itself can be positioned, resized, and manipulated in various ways.
    Check out: http://www.wetpaintcentral.com/page/Example+HTML+IFRAME+Embed to see an iframe in action.

    As far as cpa goes, sometimes evil black hat marketers iframe a small portion of the cpa submit form and place it on a different web page in an attempt to trick people into filling out that offer. That's just one extreme example, iframes are used for many different purposes, not just black hat stuff.
