    I think the article will have an adverse effect and you'll find more people joining these click networks.

    Google should offer a bounty for weeding these out... but then I guess people would just create fake click groups and try to collect the bounty.

    Good luck Google!

    Old news. Such profiles and the groups exist for last 3 years. I am sure Google is also aware of such profiles and users.

    I know of at least 10-15 groups on Palringo, people want to exchange clicks on Geico, Progressive, State Farm and those companies ads since they pay the best.

    And then people wonder why they get banned.
    A promoter spends $300 on adsense, gets 300 clicks and 0 convert, most of the people leave the site right after clicking.
    He writes an angry letter to adsense... booom! All earnings lost.

    This thread has got me thinking.

    The best way to end world hunger would be to off these sorry bastards that want to rip people/companies off. With them gone there would be plenty of love to spread around. :)

    Click fraud is pretty easy to catch, but impossible to eliminate 100%.With the FB story that broke a few weeks ago, and increasing Adsense click fraud, more of the big-spender advertisers will move toward CPM ads and CPA networks instead of PPC.

    It may be real, but I don't think it works.

    Google tracks clicks very well and can detect such fraud.
    Exactly.

    Posting such things on a blackhat forum only means inviting more people to join. :D.

    A lot of people say that it does and n the other side many people say it doesn't.
    The thing is you have to try it by yourself to get the exact answer of this question. Because it may work for some people but mostly google catches them all.
