A CSS expert told me to replace all the Adsense with a paypal link

    He said that the numbers of visitors would double if I did that. He also told if I want to earn money through Adsense, why not make a software that automatically clicks on the Adsense links by different IPs. He said that he had tried it with success in 2004. And got tons of money.

    What do you think about this. Is it possible? Personally I don't think this would work with google, but mayby Chikita..

    Your CSS expert is smoking crack. Next time he opens his mouth, slap him so hard that when he wakes up his clothes will be out of style.

    the term "expert" sure seems to be way overused.

    Latehorn, does it occur to you that that would be theft?

    Setting up a program like you mention is flat out stealing money from many of us here at these forums and elsewhere.

    It wouldn't work anyways, he'd be raking in the $$ until it came time for the first check and the BAAAAAAM! account disabled due to fraudulent clicks.

    I want to reinforce what Christopher said. This would absolutely be theft, and not just stealing from Google and the advertisers, but also from the LEGITIMATE publishers.

    PS> On globalicwarming... man, but I suspect this guy is flaming just to get argument on his forums.

    And forums...not the best AdSense generators, at least in my experience. I stopped trying...just have a sponsor on the forums and AdSense everywhere else.

    he says that he only use sites without advertisment such as wikipedia, bbc and some opensource websites. Anyway, I wouldn't do it myself, but I wonder.. how can such account be banned? I mean, if the clicks comes from different IPs..

    OK, I've read the rest of Latehorn's stuff.

    You know, instead of spreading yourself thin over a bunch of splogs and sforums, why not spend a little time researching something serious and writing about it?

    Vertical markets often pay well. ... pharma (the real thing, not illicit drugs), tech, etc.

    I'm sure you have expertise in some area of real life. Why don't I see that on your site instead of editorials for Fox News, graphs that don't lead to conclusions, etc.? You could even do something like writing about your car. You'd be surprised at what that can grow into.

    Just some thoughts. Oh, and you can do that all yourself without any ranking experts, css experts, etc. ...

    Well, that's the probably the only thing that doesn't really work with adsense and will most certainly cause to your ban..

    Dude, where do you think the money from adsense comes? It is from advertisers. What you are proposing doing is no different to taking money directly from someones bank account.

    Jeez asking will it work is the LEAST of your worries, take a step back and ask yourself, Is it moral and right to even consider doing this?

    At the end of your life, or maybe even sooner, there will come a time when you will look back on what you have done in this world. Do you really want to look back and see that you have stolen what you have?

    I would rather eat honestly earned bread than stolen beef!

    The funny thing is that there are a lot of people who show up to these forums thinking everyone is trying to scam and make the quick buck. They post out whatever cockamimi scheme they think of and are shocked when they realize not only are most people (who are vocal) here are legitimate but that many are also adwords users, the very people these schemes are stealing from. I'm pretty new here but it's a trend I see a lot.

    What was dumb? I just told you what he said. And Chitika is probably more sensible toward these kinds of attacks.

    He USES sites like those? How?

    Does he have some firefox extension to inject his own adverts into the pages or something.

    I'm confused.

    Whatever, it's a terrible idea.
