    With scrapebox not working for Ezine anymore, what's the best naughty way to boost ezine views.

    I was considering donkeymails.com but I don't know if:
    A) the hits will count
    B) ezine knows about them and detects them to later take action against my account

    Lastly, and more generally - has anyone had their ezine account locked/banned for "View fraud" or using hiderefer.com?

    (tried search :) )

    It's on just about every forum including scrapebox'es own forum that ezinearticles had made some "Adjustments" to their script to defeat the proxy pinging from boosting views.

    I certainly haven't been able to get it to work. Actually I'm having a temporary issue with proxies and scrape altogether, but even before that it wouldn't work. Are you having success with it?

    Even dumb machines aren't that stupid. pingpingpingpingpingpingping and they start to suspect something may be a tad amiss.

    Can you create the appearance that your bots are on the page and actually reading it for a variable amount of seconds before hitting it again? Four hits a minute that get counted are far better than 400 that aren't.

    That's what I'm interested in. If we could get a bot that would randomly rate the article, leave pre-written comments, or just sit on the page for 30 to 45 seconds before clicking through that would be great.

    For now I'm looking at Mturk as well, but I'm not so excited about it. Scripts/Bots are just much more fun.

    Just write a little bot/script that changes Ips and clears cookies between views.

    Unfortunately script writting is a bit beyond my knowledge despite it's ease. I've thought about learning php, but building backlinks has also seemed like the better invesmtent of time in terms of ROI and making money. Maybe I should stop being a pussy about it and just learn it.

    Sending paid clicks like donkeymails works great, and this is my personal favorite as of now.

    You will need to use a double-meta refresh to hide where you are getting the traffic from though if you want it to work, and you definitely want to spread things out a little over time if you are going to be sending a lot of views.

    I don't mean to crash the party, but why would you want to increase views on ezine articles? Does it help them rank better?

    Because I've written on there before when I was quite new to the game and I didn't notice a rev share/ppv program...

    Because you can get your article onto the #1 slot in the "Most Viewed" list withing your chosen niche's category in EZA. This will then get your article to show on every single article within that category = massive exposure.

    You can make it even more fun if you have multiple accounts in EZA because you can just repeat the process and get multiple articles in the "Most Viewed" spot which means even more massive exposure.

    It's not only massive exposure, since your article will have a link to it from every article page in that category it will improve its ranking on search engines.

    Yeah, there's really no limit to the amount of "Goodness" that comes from having an article with a lot of views.... Mine's about "Men's Health" which makes it even more important.

    Any FAQ/Tut/Dumbass Newbie Howto for double refreshing the meta?

    I've read through that before. Its a nice method. I'm not really trying to rank though. Im trying to get my article lots of fake views so it can get on the front page and show up for my category, that way I can get real traffic from ezine.
