This is was happend the other day: I was checking my PPC campaing with Findwhat and its network, and I found, whe I clicked over my company link, my website, with a upper frame with the logo findwhat´s affiliate, and a banner of other company.

What´s your opinion?

Because I wrote to Findwhat and they respons me than is not a problem for me, because the banner and the frame isn´t my competitor.

I'm a bit late joining this thread but search for "break out of frames" on google. You can use Javascript code on your site to break out of frames.

Some PPCs will turn off your campaigns if your site escapes partner frames (or if it prevents the use of the back button, which some javascript does). I know Ask and Yahoo! are hot on this - so that means Overture and Google will be too.

I've never seen an advertiser TOS which will not allow you to do this. Certainly there is nothing in Findwhats TOS to prevent you from doing so.

Overture and Google don't allow partner sites to frame sponsor links, so using javascript to break out of frames should not be an issue with these programs anyway.
