how I made $4300 in two days with this blackhat adwords strategy

    First off, let me preface by saying that I am NOT selling anything, not pushing an ebook, not trying to get you to PM me.

    In fact, I will go so far as to say that if you PM me, I will not respond because I am too freakin' busy!

    Allow me to share a cute little blackhat adwords technique that made me over four grand in 48 hours. Here's what you do. Monitor the yahoo buzz factor or any "hot search" results page. Google zeitgeist is good too. Know what terms are most popular at this very moment. I made $4300 using terms related to "spitzer's whore" when the news broke about it, but you can use any currently popular terms.

    So here's what I did ... made a little site related to news about elliot spitzer, registered a domain name and put some news articles on it. Then I bid on terms like "spitzer's girlfriend", "spitzer news", etc. Avoiding the terms "whore" or "escort" because google will block the ad.
    SEMrush
    Of course I bid the minimum on all my terms .. i made permutations of like 500 terms relating to Spitzer.

    It took about 15 minutes and the ad went live. I waited a bit. Then I got rid of the landing page altogether and did a server-side redirect to a porn site.

    Bing, bang boom. Cheap traffic at $0.08 per click to a milf site. It was converting about 1 in 350. I made $50 per sale. Easy money. Did this for 48 hours and racked up almost five grand in profits.

    This system can be repeated over and over again for popular keyword terms.

    Told you I wasn't selling anything :)

    That's why it's "blackhat" - you certainly don't want to do it with an adwords account that you don't want to lose. You also need have money to fund the campaign. With a 1 to 350 conversion at .08 you would be spending about $28.00 per conversion. If the payout was $50 you would spend about $5500 to take in $9800 gross, leaving a net profit of $4300. You need to make sure you are dealing with an affiliate that is going to pay you - and depending on their payout schedule, you might need to pay your adwords bill before you get any money.

    Well he made perfectly clear from the start its black hat, so if you don't fancy it don't do it, its simple enough. Fair play to the guy, I hope it works out well for him and anyone else that fancies trying it :D

    thats not a new trick actually. only good thing about this is, its quick money but ONLY while lasts. once google find out or if someone reports you, your adwords account will be suspended. once suspended from adwords, its permanent lifetime suspension.

    nice trick, in fact on server side, you can detect bot and browser then do redirect or not. Google is very hard to detect it, special the campaign stop after 48 hours.

    Why did you make a website with new domain name in the first place if you redirected it to a porn site?
    You could redirect any domain name or page, right?

    Good one, still you need to trust 100% the affiliate network and also care less for losing the adwords account.

    actually this is what should be done to make money online..

    gamble with little bit of creative evil brain..

    but to be honest..

    why would ppl spend their dollars when they was searching for some free news that was in buzz??

    ...

    assume i search for what happend to some Governor Eliot Spitzer's prostitute

    and then the site redirects to a mlif adult site..

    and i throw my credit card on it??

    is ppl online nuts?? i had a feeling ppl see same site 10 times and research a lot.. before they even spend 1$ in it..

    ..

    imagine lets say 10 000 ppls reading this post

    and it redirects to a porn site

    all of us will end up spending on porn??

    ..
