    Hello guys , I have not been around for months now . I was just wondering if there is still a way to get Grants ? I heard there is a techsoup website now responsible for verifying NGOs . Are there any sellers out here ? Anywhere ? Regards ,

    By grants do you mean where you pretend to be a charity to get free ppc?

    You're taking money from charities. Don't you think that's morally wrong?

    Man this is blackhat forum.
    Of course OP knows this and apparently it doesn't bug him so do you think he'll realize it only after reading your reply?
    Makes no sense.

    There's no infinite pot of money. The more "charities" that are given free ppc the less there is for genuine charities. it's beyond me how any can defend this. This is a black hat seo forum not a scamming forum.

    But there is an infinite pot of ads for google. So if they want to give out, couple of fake charities wont make a big difference...

    In theory if the traffic comes from adsense Google still pays for it smh (though I wouldn't care much since they shave publishers and bann them without paying so often).
    But this is only theory, even if 10000 people would do this for a while Google would barely notice. This is much like coupon accounts, Google may pay for the ads or lose money (because the traffic could be bought by 'real' adverts) but it doesn't seem to bug them a lot.

    I agree with jamie3000.

    Seriously you guys are trying to take money away from non profits and charities.... WTF? There is a difference between Black Hat and being scammer. One take's advantage of inefficiencies in a system, the other directly harms others. It's an important ethical and moral difference.

    Nobody is stealing anything for charities you got this all wrong..

    Think of Google as an ice cream truck which have an endless supply of a special unique flavored icecream and are giving away free icecream only to people from USA.
    Now you have one problem , you are not from the USA and you badly want to taste that unique flavored icecream !
    So what if you make a fake id and cheat the system and get some free icecream ?
    That surly doesn't means that there wont be any icecream left for all the other people.. Especially when they produce that icecream from thin air.

    And since you are a moral and systematic person ( referring to this : One take's advantage of inefficiencies in a system, the other directly harms others. ) can you explain me this :

    How come google main registered money laundering offices and cash-flow is mostly registered with countries that have the smallest tax paying systems like Mexico ?
    Doesn't that breaks the system and bleed out an unimaginable sum of money that should have gone to social cases / homeless or charities ? Is that morally correct ?

    Or why are all the "free apps" that google gives you to use are designed to collect every bit of information they possible can about you ?
    Every search you make, every word you type, every place you visit even your browsing history !
    Than they filter this information and use it to build a profile about you and sell it to the highest bidder without you even knowing it.. Is that also morally correct ?

    Is it moral and ethical to shave off publishers and wait to ban them a day before the payout is made without providing any reason and just because they felt like so ?

    My point is why should you play fair with a company that invented unfair play to begin with ?

    With a company that has its slogan "Dont be evil" and yet has crushed so many small companies in their way and continue to do so until this day with their monopoly over many industry`s.

    I can write you up countless of cases where google has done damage to businesses using their influence and monopoly over the search industry. Favoring some companies more than other or forcing small companies to pay for ads.

    Isint that "taking advantage of inefficiencies in a system" ?

    And dont get confused, like i said before, you don`t take away anything from the charities, you are just cheating the system to get some very tasty free icecream and Google is the one that has the endless supply.

    If it was another case than maybe, but if you ask me if its morally wrong to hit google by its pocket a little, the company that currently has more cash on hand than US, than i would say NO, its just fine..

    Even double up and expand if possible !

    Cheers..

    >> Especially when they produce that icecream from thin air.

    Where can I get one of those? Surely that can't be in our universe.

    Anyway, getting back to the topic, I wish people would use that thing in their head once in a while called a brain.

    If you are a non-profit, you can take advantage of a Google Adwords Grant. You can apply, doesn't mean you will get it. You obviously need to be a legitimate non-profit.

    If a non-profit has a grant account, why would they get rid of it? Right there should tell you something.

    Even so, Google does checks and balances. Some day, they'll check that grant account and see it does not comply with the original stipulations. Therefore, no more account. Heck, they would probably take you to court for fraud.

    This whole "I got a $10k Google Grant account for sale" is a scam.

    Wanted to give you Multi Likes but couldn't due to limitations. Anyway, you are right to the point that Google should be banged the way it bangs endless people and companies. That's what BlackHat/GreyHat marketing is about, and that's exactly what i am here for !

    What you're saying now is it's ok to steal from someone if you think they're stealing from others. That still makes you a thief.

    Besides the morality of it, do you really think you can build a long term sustainable business by commiting fraud?

    I still think it's morally wrong so we'll just have to agree to disagree. I wish you the best of luck in your ventures regardless :)

    I never said it was long term and there is no doubt that this is an unethical method we dont have to disagree :)
    But so are a big % of the methods you will find around here as well.
