    y u no do it?

    Advertising (learn more)

    Advertise virtually anything here, with CPM banner ads, CPM email ads and CPC contextual links. You can target relevant areas of the site and show ads based on geographical location of the user if you wish.

    Starts at just $1 per CPM or $0.10 per CPC.

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

    What does being a CSS "expert" have to do with marketing and advertising. Just because I play guitar doesn't mean I can tell you how to bake a cake!

    So you think Chitika likes to see it's advertisers cheated too? I'm really having a difficult time putting myself into your frame of mind. Sorry.

    Do you even realise you are talking about a virus / spyware here ?
    That's a punishable crime ...
    And I am totally in deep confusion about how would CSS do it .
    And in case you haven't heard of the term "fraudulent clicks" refer the google adsense TU's again .

    I think your CSS expert and your foot need to meet... Kick some sense into him...

    Here's a question, saying you can make or get this program, where in the hell are you going to get access to all these ips? You're going to need IP's from all over the world/country... I don't know too many ISP's just willing to say oh hey, borrow this IP while you make fraudulent clicks on your adsense...

    This is simply FRAUDULENT

    This guy needs reporting, if he is "advising" other people to do this, he is encouraging CRIME.
    As for using "different IPs", I can assure you, Google will know. I wont say how on here, in case your CSS """expert""" gets soome more bright ideas!

    This might be the reason he doesn't claim to be an Adsense expert.

    CSS expert??? lol. I'm sure most of us here are 'css experts'. I'd be embarrassed to go around calling myself that! It kind of implies that he's good at CSS and crap at HTML, javascript and every other aspect of web design. I certainly wouldn't listen to him.

    Hey guys, don't laugh at this guy, he's serious. I found a picture of his "CSS EXPERT" online, so we know he's legit.

    What he's talking about is illegall -- and i 100% agree with everyone on here that its not right, but it is possible, and could easily be made with VB. - I also bet there are a lot of people who do it. :mad:

    Not going into detail how you would make a program like this, you wouldnt need loads of isp's mate, you'd use somthing called a proxy. - there are 100's of sites that list proxys, and all they do is mask your ip with a differnt one. - i use them to view the showtime site which only allows usa views (need to check on the status of dead like me :p ) -- All it would take is a vb program that changes your proxy settings, then direct links to the page with the ad, then the add. -- it really is somthing you could make in a few hours.

    !! Just becase i know how to do it, it doesnt mean i would ever do it!! so please dont accusse me of anything -- read my other posts, im a 30 page views a day guy :rolleyes: !!!

    Yea, and you don't think G knows which IP's are proxies and which aren't? Lol, if the majority of your hits come from proxy sites it's going to be obvious what's going on. Also, how many of those proxy sites allow cookies? Yet another way you'd get caught. Go ahead and try it, see what happens. About the only way you'd ever get away with it is if you had a friend or someone click a couple ads for you here and there... then what? Risk getting banned then too for a few extra cents? And yes most certainly, if your 'css expert' has a website that runs adsense (doubtful if he actually is trying to scam), then he should be reported. I'd kick his ass too if I knew where he lived, stealing money from myself and other publishers.

    Oh yeah, i totally agree that google will know what are proxys IPs, -- and i can guarantee that you'd get caught doing what i said.

    I just wanted to answer latehorn's thread which was "Is it possible?" -- the answer is yes, its possible, but just like everyones said, it wouldnt get you any money, and its illegal.
