    Hi, I don't post much here at the forums but I do read a lot and you guys all have a lot of interesting stuff to say and a lot of very useful information so thanks for that everyone!

    I had an idea that I thought would be awesome if someone actually implemented it. I would but I don't write code and I want to hear what people think about it.

    Basically it would be a peace of script that someone would download with another program that they actually wanted to download. Like if you were giving out free software you would also include piece of script in it too. There is a lot of information about putting two pieces of software into one bundle on the pay per install forum that is linked to by this site. I don't know if that would help but you get the idea.

    This piece of script would basically mean that when the person who had it went on google it would make all the ppc ads click-able but the link would go directly to the person who was advertising's link so they would not have to pay google.

    Basically the person would search like dogs. The ad would come up with do you want to buy a dog from my shop. The person would click on it and instead of the link that they clicked on linking through google it would just link straight to the guys pet shop so he wouldn't have to pay google for the clicks.

    Think about if we all started doing this as kind of a project. Soon if all marketers gave away this tiny piece of script we would start seeing results as searchers all over the internet get directed straight to the supplier and not through google.

    The thing is we would always still have to pay something for the ads as not everyone will have the script, however there will be a noticeable difference in price reduction in paying for ads on google.

    What do you guys think. Is this at all possible?

    Yeah but the script could easily be installed as a toolbar that makes google easier to use

    You could be like yeah it's the toolbar doing its thing so don't block it so the user unblocks it on AVG and it works as like a toolbar and also when on google un links the ads

    What I have seen done is for example Firefox distributed with the default search engine set to a Google Custom Search Engine. Technically it's breaking Google's ToS, but you could probably get away with it for a while (since others clearly are) or you could find a different search engine with a similar offer.

    There's clearly a line between that and installing software which sets people's default search engines/homepages and/or supplies extra adverts though.
