Ad Clicker
« on: December 28, 2005, 02:44:47 PM »
This is quite possibly the greatest idea I've efer had - a program which continuously fools google into thinking that you are clicking on their ads by constantly clicking on the link over and over again. (I'm assuming that you get money when people click on your google ads)

Another slightly more evil idea - a program which constantly refreshes and refreshes a web page of your choice. Excellent for using up all of someone's bandwidth...

in the old days of ads, people got rich off such stuff.
now sites like google aggressively punish such behavior.  not only will you lose money instead of making it but google has been banning sites for this, and people are using these ad clickers now to attack each other and get each other banned ! crazy world.

Damn! What about the other idea?

P.s. Damn! I knew someone had already taken my idea. (I always think of these things 10 years too late.)
