Comment posted to WordPress 3 Theme Talian with Targeted AdSense, Clickbank and SEO Optimisation by Phil.

Hi David,
thanks for your reply - and so soon after I posted too!

It may appear that I know more than I do, though. So while your answer is interesting, I would need more detail to achieve what you seem to be suggesting.

I know my way around html and css - but when it comes to php, javascript and WordPress structure I resort to guessing what something does then performing trial and error until I get somewhere. Hence, the code pasted above became the solution simply because whenever I tried to take more away the whole thing collapsed.

As for SEO on the ‘blank page’, it would, of course, be nice to be able to do some - if you come up with a solution I’d be glad to hear it. Currently, I intend direct linking so organic listing for the sales page will have to suffer until I figure out how to do what you suggest.

By the way, for anyone interested - I wanted to change the ‘someimage.gif’ not only to another image but, due to its prime position, to a banner ad for an affiliate offer.

I’d love to say I came up with the solution but, as usual, I simply came up with the right google search - and this is what I did: https://webdevnews.net/2007/01/css-trick-turning-a-background-image-into-a-clickable-link/

- it works perfectly.

By the way - any thoughts on Caffeinated Content or that kind of plugin?

Thanks again,
Phil
