Putting sites in autosurf?

    is it a good idea to put your sites in auto-surfing programs, atleast that way, we'll get more impressions?
    or against TOS?

    Why don't you study the TOS? Seems pretty clear to me:

    I find it pretty unprofessional and childish when people can't be bothered to read the TOS. Reminds me not to ever do business with them.

    Regardless of the TOS, autosurf sites are a waste of money. Nobody actually looks at the sites, they refresh automatically. It's just a waste of money and bandwidth.

    I had purchased the 25,000 visitors plan with auto surf to put a site with adsense. I later found this concept of auto surf scary and stayed away... I still have that "unused" auto surf package... Anyone wants it for half the price I purchased? lol.. :p

    What is autosurfing? I have not heard of it until now?

    I assume it loads your site into some sort of program, in queue with a bunch of others, to load them up on various people's computers in hopes that they actually browse each of them? Is that accurate?

    An "autosufer" signs up for a program which through either installed software or using frames or something their browser is automatically refreshed every few seconds with another website. The autosurfers get paid a small amount of money and the websites in the autosurf program pay money to be included.

    Its used a lot on them get 10K visitors to your site today programs. Search for "get web traffic" and look at the adwords.

    Is that how those 100k visitors are generated? I figured it was robots or proxy surfing or something.

    Putting your site to autosurf sites breaks Google TOS... Yes it can send your site thousands of impressions.. but not valid visitors.

    Impressions are useless, you can get impressions on your adsense banner right here in the Digital Point forums, and still it makes you close to nothing.

    thats one of the ways they use to get the different ip hits and they spread it over 30 days so you only need 3 or 4 people a day. i am sure they are useing proxy servers to help.

    example got this from my stats from a small package I get a while back to give it a try.

    Autosurfing programs are definitely against the Google ToS. Although they might not be clicking on the ads, they still generate fraudelent page impressions.

    Autosurfing and page view generation is a complete waste of time -- just like vanity publishers who will print your novel for a high fee just to stroke your ego, autosurfing is more for your ego than your pocketbook.

    In terms of AdSense, it doesn't make sense. For the amount you'd make (likely not much if they receive the same IP over and over and over for less than 1 second per visit), you're putting yourself into the ban-region with no payback.

    Want good profitable traffic? Make good content.
    Want good profitable traffic? Get a good domain name.
    Want good profitable traffic? Make friendly and worthy comments on forums that are aligned with your site.
    Want good profitable traffic? Stick around for more than a year or three.
    Want good profitable traffic? Find a niche market.

    Everything else just gets you spinning your wheels and wasting your time!

    He won't even get any impression on Autosurf (G ads don't appear on auto surf but they might appear on manual surf programs) and again if you use any surfing programs you will get booted soon since same people will click your ads again n again. My advice is just to get traffic from search engines that takes time but eventually produce results.Keep getting back links and update your content frequently!

    I belong to a few autosurfs, but I never use my Adsense sites on there. I'm pretty sure it's against the TOS, and it really should be. I'll admit, I don't usually watch my browser while I'm autosurfing, so I can understand why Google wouldn't want a bunch of autosurfed Adsense hits. Untargetted traffic is worthless enough already, but absent untargetted traffic is completely useless for me.
