    Was wondering how this converts for an obvious CPA offer of Colon Cleanse?
    In the first Lindsey Lohan article the WH posters attack the comment spammer..... I was wondering if it's worth the trouble to promote in that fashion.

    Personally I think I'd try a more subtle approach and motivate them to click
    without the repeated announcements of COLON CLEANSE - COLON CLEANSE - COLON CLEANSE !

    Anyway I posted the url to articles displaying the comment spam under Lindsey Lohan and Emma Watson, hopefully you might see it before AOL deletes it, if they ever do. Might be interesting to see how long those spam comments last and stay online.





    Example of WH's attacking a BlackHatter.

    Comment spam rarely converts. I mean logically whos going to need a colon cleanse while reading up on linsey lohan lol. Try targeting your campaigns and see how much better it converts.

    Not worth it IMO

    I think it would be more beneficial for backlinks, rather than direct traffic as mentioned above. But even with backlinks, you would want to target your comments a bit better than on an article like that.

    Also, I would be more worried about what your CPA company might think of this type of promotion. That is, unless you have the spoofing of your refererr down pat. AOL is pretty big, and although there is plenty of money to be made with/on it, their complaints weigh-in pretty heavy. I am speaking from past experience.
