    Basically, using this technique you can trick users into clicking PPC ads like adwords. It is a method to get around the fact that in JavaScript, for security reasons, you can't set the mouse position.

    The idea is to make a silverlight control (here, a fake video player), where I have put code to hide the user's mouse cursor and replace it with a bitmap of a cursor. When he tries to play the fake video by moving his mouse towards the play button, the fake cursor moves towards the play button but his real cursor moves towards the ads (see the example below). He doesn't see the real cursor move because it is hidden by the script. When he hovers the button with the fake cursor, it lights up like a jack-o-lantern and he clicks it, but what he doesn't notice is that his real cursor was actually over an ad, and that the video player lighting up was just a diversion.

    To see the technique in action, go to
    hxxp://extremeupdates.1stfreehosting.com/Videos.htm

    and try to view the (fake) video.

    It doesn't work everytime (there are a few bugs I have to fix too). But it is certainly MUCH better than standard clickthrough rates.

    Obviously, you don't have to use Silverlight to get this to work. Flash would do as well, and I'm sure you could even adapt it to work only using JavaScript. I used Silverlight because I am very familiar with the technology and it offers more flexibility.

    do you have a script that puts an image over the real page so the users see a different page but there is a gap in the image that is just over the part for people to enter their name/email/zip etc of another page

    If they fill this in they are subscribing for us but then hopefully their page refreshes and they can then get the page they thought they were coming to in the first place

    hope that makes sense

    When your quality drops on your adwords accounts because you're tricking people into clicking crap they will lower your payout or ban you.

    Yeah, I know

    Frigging adwords changing their rules and stealing my bread butter :(

    Don't know, I found it in my books of records, it might be here too!

    But, I have never said that I own this trick, If I own something, I clearly state it!

    If you already have a website that's doing good with with PPC would they still lower payouts / ban you for all the extra clicks?

    If not, you could make tons of YT videos like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHaTnLJHaIQ this one I made. It was an experiment to see how many people actually visit the website to watch the full video. I could see lots of kids clicking the play button, lol.

    Hey bhavya!

    Unlike the forum that you run and the members you have, BHW is the Best . . . and the blackhatters here are the best and are lightyears ahead of the little dogs out there. I recall in your introductory post the other day, that you made it sound like you were REALLY going to show us little guys how it's done. Well, I think you are being shown quite quickly that you need to have some REALLY FRESH, original techniques if you plan to get anyone's attention here. Know what I mean? . . .

    Cheers! - "Wiz"
