So I'm working on this Directory site. We have a list of 20,000 businesses, and many of them have a link to their website.

The owner of the website asked me if we could change these links to point to a page that would embed the website in an iframe, with an ad on top (to make more ad revenues).

To me it sounds a bit shady, but besides breaking the back/forward navigation, I don't see any harm done.

Do you guys see any problem with this approach?

Think About your site users and your goal.

If your site is developed to give Directory Details For the Targeted Use ( your user) then linking to that revenue page is not a good approach, next time that user won't visit your site for that details.
