In this post I will discuss the technical aspects of implementing a redirect without the URL changing on the user’s browser. I have used this successfully before to run PPC (Bing) traffic directly to an offer from Max Bounty and it worked like a charm! Before I show you how to do it, I will cover the advantages, disadvantages and possible risks involved.
BUT YOU SHOULD BE BUILDING A LIST NOT LINKING DIRECTLY to OFFERS!
This is correct you should send your traffic to a lander and collect the email subscription first and then send them to the affiliate offer. That is all well and dandy but sometimes the offer is not specific enough to be worthy of list building. Let me show you what I mean;
Let’s look at this an email submit offer on Max Bounty like this one below.This is very specific and targeted to someone with a political opinion.This is very worth of a list building effort due to the fact the these folks are well defined. In this case you should build a landing page, offer an incentive and then send them to the offer. No redirect needed for this offer!
… AN OFFER WORTHY of LIST BUILDING
You can clearly see that the Trump offer can lead to niche based list building.
Now let’s look at an offer that is way to generalized, one that would NOT be worthy of list building. There is no niche because almost everyone likes potato chips IMO! See what you think…
… AN OFFER NOT WORTH of LIST BUILDING
So just in case you want to drive some traffic directly to this offer from say Bing PPC. But Bing only lets you send traffic to your domain. How can you link directly to the offer?
Here is a fool proof way to accomplish this. As of Dec 2017 this is still working and has for manyc years.
… CREATING A FRAME REDIRECT TO YOUR OFFER
Note: yourdomainname.com will still show your website as it currently is and only http:/ yourdomanim.com/newfolder will redirect to the offer.
You will need the following;
- a hosting account with cpanel
- a domain name ( can be in use no problem)
- an affiliate link
- edit the script below by replacing “you affiliate link.com” with your affiliate link
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN””http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/frameset.dtd”>
<frameset rows=”100%,*” border=”0″>
<frame name=”__main” src=”your affiliate link.com”
<h2>Your Web browser does not support frames</h2>
Please click the link to visit
<a href=”your affiliate link.com”>My Offer</a>
*NOTE: replace your affiliate link.com with your offer link (2) twice then delete this note, Wade
1) Log in to C panel and click “File Manager” <see fig.# 1>
(NOTE: if you use this for Bing PPC,use an account that you don’t care about as we are stretching the rules a bit with this technique)
2) Click on Public.html and find the domain that you will use <see fig.#2>
3) Find and click on the domain name <see fig.#3>
4) Create a new folder with the name for the offer <see fig.#4>
5) Click on the folder to open it so you can upload the script <see fig.# 5>
6) Upload the script into the folder <see fig.#6>
Great Job! here is what was accomplished. We now have a framed redirect from our domain to our affiliate offer. so to be clear we have created a “framed redirect” as opposed to a simple redirect.
the advantage being that browser will not show the affiliate link.
HERE is original domain name it goes to an SEO portal type site that I own. You can see that it does not affect the website –http://seosearchtips.com
HERE is the affiliate offer using the Master Marketer’s Framed Redirect Code in a folder as illustrated in the above lesson- http://seosearchtips.com/test one
Hope it helps, please feel free to contact me with any questions, Wade
