ApplyFrameCatcher Traffic Saver
As a webmaster you rely on exchanging links with other sites to share content and other features.
But what happens when your users click on outgoing links on your site that send them away? Usually, they
never return. ApplyFrameCatcher addresses that issue by putting all your outgoing users in a framed page in which
they view your banner or HTML page at the top of the screen, which you can use to gently remind them where they came
from, and how to get back. This is similar to the technique used by AskJeeves.com, which places a link to their home page at the
top of all the search results.
The great thing about this frame you designate is that it's persistent -- Your frame will stay in place above the current page the user
is surfing until he/she ends their session. This prevents outgoing links from costing you traffic.
This user has just left your site for Amazon.com. Notice that although he is surfing on Amazon, your custom designed
frame stays on top.
anything else you'd normally put on a page. You can designate the size you'd like your top frame to be.
- Many uses. Use your top-frame to remind users to return to your site, include a form that lets them rate the website they're surfing, place advertisements,
- This is especially great for link-directory sites whom must somehow keep their traffic, despite the fact that all their links send visitors away.
Outgoing links don't have to mean lost traffic. Keep your visitors where they belong with ApplyFrameCatcher.
