    I was working on some script today, and came up with an idea for putting your cheap-ass ads around premium websites, using frames similar how linkbucks works.

    For example, say you are advertising bowling leagues. First, take a look at google and find the highest ranked website. 2) Buy a domain with that website spelled almost the same (optional, but a nice touch if you want to go the extra mile). You can also just use any old domain and hope people don't notice they are at a different URL. 3) Create a URL that puts iframes at the top and/or sides with your ads. (see the source code of linkbucks top banner ads pages to get the actual script--I'm not doing all your work for you, well, not for free anyway) 4) Show the content of the actual good website content the main area of the browser. Now, the entire time people are browsing the real website, your ads will be stationary in the peripheral iframes, just waiting to be clicked.

    I checked around, and there is definitely some gray area with Adsense about doing this, but I did find a response directly from google saying it was OK . I am using adbrite to try it out. You can probably figure out a way to make your iframe ads parse the main content area to get better ads. I haven't played around with that yet.

    Additional tips:

    - You can name the browser title bar, so use that to your advantage.

    - You can cloak your affiliate links and send traffic to your affiliate's actual website, and then display competitor ads on their site. This is a nice win-win for you, since they are your ads, and very targeted (ie. send people to amazon, then put book ads in your iframes....brilliant)

    - You can add a "Bookmark me now" or Social Bookmarking links in your top iframe, which could get your crappy site repeat business and a few easy backlinks.

    A little thanks would be appreciated if this is helpful, as always. I'm kind of a thanks whore.

    Neat idea though, some sites have done this successfully for years.

    One last thing, you should probably put a search bar in the top iframe with the display target being your main browser frame. This will keep your ads in view even longer while they are surfing the web.

    why would you do something like that ? how do you plan to promote your site with no content on it ? You have no chance on google and other search engines. I don't really see this as good idea :)

    May I ask what sort of online money making ventures you are involved in? That way I can tailor my response accordingly to help you see the light.

    I saw something similar done with google (kinde of google replica, like chinese rolex), but I don't know how much his website and account last, because he was using adsense and we all know that google it's not so friendly

    It is certainly a gray area and a risk with Adsense. There are plenty of other ad companies to use.

    Here is the actual response someone got when they asked Adsense about it.

    You obviously do not have a clue as to the potential uses for the idea. Think about putting the ad frames on your own websites, and the power of keeping your ads in front of people even when they click exit links.

    Move on to a "how to outsource AC articles" thread.

    I want to vouch for the possibilities of this technique. I made a lot of money with this method earlier this year, I didn't say so before because I used a BH technique that I can't discuss for 30+ more posts, heh. (that'll take me a month or two I'm sure)

    I'm afraid that it would be risky with adsense, because usually your top frame will have an adsense block, and so will the page you iframe, it'll probably look like you're cheating to go over the "adblock-per-page" limit, which generally makes big G mad.

    Yes, you can reference whatever page you found that said OK, but you may have to "work" now and then by going thru the trouble of getting your account reactivated.

    Definitely workable, in fact I'm thinking of using this tonight. I made a noob mistake and got one URL I like auto-ghosted on CL. I studied up and now know to use blogspot redirection (presuming that still works), but after reading this thread I think I'll buy a throwaway .info tonight to promote instead, and use this method to iframe my original page.

    Just to practice basically, but if it's as easy as it should be, you're right I can even throw an ad for the "competition" in.

    Also trying to practice not getting flagged... CL is even better immediate feedback on your copywriting than adwords used to be. :wizard:

    So yeah, Thanks (clicked) for inspiring thought on my night's project.

    Wouldn't you have to continue promote a site like this consistently?

    I don't see any SEO advantages with iframing the content. Now don't get me wrong, this is a pretty brilliant idea, but is there a way to maximize earnings using this technique? Would adsense or adbrite really be worth it?

    Thanks given by the way...

    It's a good concept, but if I may answer the why build a website question : building a network is where's it at. Be it lenses, blogs, portals, anything, the more you have the better the pay. Just my two cents.
