    Hello, I plan to create a bit of a script that users can insert into their websites and show some custom info.
    I'm also planning to include a link to my webpage. To avoid the users the ability to remove the link I was thinking of giving away the code with an iframe.

    Does this will help SEO? will google see this as an active link to my website?
    thanks

    One thing to keep in mind: surfers who use browser extensions such as adblocker will not be able to see your iframe.

    I've work with iframes before, but never had any issues, even with adblocker.
    I'm not planning on putting anything fancy, it's just a script to display plain text and a link to my website.

    Generally iframes with src's across origins are treated similarly to an anchor element with href similar or equal to the anchor text, as they're often used for things like social network integration and third party comment services, like disqus.
