    Hi guys...

    Last week I changed my domain state from 301 redirection into Iframe for one of my CB hoplinks. Now I see that the number of guys who go to the order page has increased by say 2-3X... But the number of sales is just like before - not only like when I used 301 redirection but just like when I used free re directors (x.vu)-.
    So what's wrong with this? Can I come to this conclusion that Iframe really affects the number of sales as CB claims?

    Thanks

    Hi Mancar...

    First, I sent you a PM almost 2 weeks ago.. If you remember we talked via PM...

    And about your question, here's it is:
    https://support.clickbank.com/entries/22803362-All-About-HopLinks

    Invalid HopLinks

    To ensure proper tracking of your HopLink referrals, your HopLink needs to open into the top level of a new or existing window. For most affiliates, this is not a problem. However, some affiliates attempt to hide their HopLinks by having them open into other types of sub-window objects, such as frames, iframes, layers, applets, or images. These types of HopLinks are considered invalid, and can result in lost affiliate referral credit, incorrect display of your website, or, in the case of abuse of the HopLink system, could result in account termination without notice.
    If you're a beginner affiliate and don't understand the terminology above, don't worry. The default methods of creating HopLinks listed above will always generate valid HopLinks.

    And also there they have mentioned something interesting (which can mean that if the customer uses anti-spyware/ad-blocker then the affiliate might end up with no credit if a sale happens...):

    I think that main thing about iframes and clickbank is that iframes are frequently used by affiliates to abuse the system, which can result in account suspension. Hence why they discourage them.
