The external site shown would be completely displayed except for a small navigation bar at the top of the page...width 100%, height=50. The navigation bar could be closed at anytime with an x in the upper right of it. It would display no ads. It would provide the exact address of the site it is linking to.
I stand to make zero profit off of showing these pages....the only "profit" is that people would come to my site to pick 20 of these 300 sites they like and then view them conveniently instead of separately bookmarking the pages themselves. If someone did this with your site, how would you feel? If they told you ahead of time they were doing this, how would you feel?
@georged: The pass off/(theft) is the frame. That simple. I don't allow google to do that or any other website (if I can prevent it).
Hypothetical question: As a site owner, would you pass up being framed to not be included in the #1 used database about your niche, the site where everyone goes to find the best sites about your niche? Would you pass this up due to your strict guidelines about being in a frame?
Remember, there are no company logos on the navigation bar...it is only there so users can easily sift through the websites they had previously selected. The navigaion bar would have Prev and Next buttons, as well as an HTML Select bar. It would make viewing 20 sites rapidly much easier than having to click 20 different links and closing windows afterwards; however, I would consider the latter option if it was the only choice I had due to frame hatred.
I sure would. Don't kid yourself you are providing a service. You aren't. Because you are NOT Google.
Geez, you don't have to mean about it. A simple no would suffice.
One of my pages makes +50 bucks/day framed in another site, and the framing situation is a lot worse than what I'm planning. Do I care I'm framed? Hell no! I'm getting traffic from it and my ads are still being shown. I'm not sure why everyone is so anti-frames, especially if I'm going to go out of my way to say the conent is not mine and basically advertise the site it comes from.
I'm going to do it anyway, probably around November or December. I'll be contacting sites beforehand and showing them a working model and they can approve or disapprove being added...I'm not going to touch their content at all if they say no. Thanks for the responses though, just shows I'll have to work extra hard for this to work.
