of site means out of sight means out of mind
script can be used not only for framing an Amazon
store, but simply any external link on your
me explain in detail.
sure you have quite a few external links on
your site - that is, links to other 3rd party
sites, which don't belong to you.
there are two ways to do this :
the external link in a new window: In this
case, you are sending your visitor to a totally
different site, and though you are sending
them in a new window, chances are, if they
like the external site a lot, they just might
spend a lot of time there, and by the time
they are done and close the window, they might
already be done browsing, or they've simply
lost that momentum. Out of site means out
of sight means out of mind ;-)
other choice is to frame them within your
own frame on your site. Which means your frame
will be showing all the time, and will serve
them as a reminder that you are the one who
brought them here, and that your site is still
waiting for you to return.
see an example of what framing other sites within
your own frame means, click
I have framed an amazon product page within
my own frame (see my logo and a link back to
my site at the top right corner). Clicking
this link will take you back to my webstore
(from where I send my visitors out to Amazon
pages this way).
with the conventional way of framing,
there is one problem - if you were to build
a frame-index page for every such external page,
and if your site contains hundreds (or even
tens) of such external links, then you would
end up spending an extraordinary amount of time
building and maintaining the frame index pages.
solution to the problem:
The Amazon-Frame-Builder script.
external links dynamically. Just like I've done
above. Regardless of how many such external
links you have, all you need is just this one
me prove it to you: Add the url of any page
at the end of this following link:
ahead and try replacing the text YOUR-LINK-HERE
in the above link, with the url to any page
or site - just make sure it starts with http://
example, you could try something like:
link has framed google.com within my site's
master frame. Try clicking on the above link
and you'll understand more about this dynamic
framing script. Try replacing the http://www.google.com
with http://www.yoursite.com .
this script is truly a dream come true not only
for framing amazon product pages, but for framing
any external link on your site.
reason I say this, is because I wrote to reduce
my own work when I was trying to frame 30-40
amazon product pages from my toy store at my
flagship site, BabyNamesIndia.com
here to frame Google.com
I: Code for main frame set
is a reference to "top_toyframe.html"
in the code below. Modify that part to reflect
the page which contains the HTML code for your
top half of the frame. Copy the code in the
box below into a file and name it toyframe.html
II: Code for top half of your frame
is the code for the page which refers to top_toyframe.html
.This one has the logo and the link back some
page on your site. Copy the code below and customize
it to reflect your site. And then put into a
file and call it top_toyframe.html . If you
decide to name it anything else, then don't
forget to modify the reference to the same page
in the code for Part I.
can even have a small banner or button, like
I've done below.
