    I use Mechanical Turk for many projects. It is a fast, easy, cheap way to get work done. I use it for content generation and research work. But there has to be some decent BlackHat exploits.

    Just in case you have never heard of Turk, it is an online marketplace where people can offer payment for businesses and services that require a human element rather than computing power.

    HTML:
    https://www.mturk.com/mturk/welcome
    You can pay people a few cents (or more) to do almost any task you can think of, and there a billion people just waiting to do these things.

    How to harness it in a BH way is the question. You would have to be creative how you do it because Mechanical Turk clearly states you can't have people click on ads. Maybe there is a way to do it via GodCPA? I don't know. What do you think?

    Send them to an external site, and CakeSlice the email and submit button as the last few things. Then Search on BHW about an iframed history > 1 with cpa or something and then redirect them saying to go back to Turk and input this string to signify that they completed the survey (go to an md5 hashing website, play around with some words, and then add two strings together to get a 64 character length string that looks pretty legit nd have everyone who gets to that page see it.

    Thats it.

    I know that you need to play with redirection and give them sth to do so it won't looks like they need to complete the survey.
