    Here's something I was wondering, I've been noticing mt*** hits lately which look like they are disguised as a survey(way to get around mt*** not letting you charge for people filling out forms) but actually they are telling someone to do a CPA action.

    First they send them to a page that the ad is on, and from there they do what they are supposed to do. And pay the person doing a hit like .20 when they make a buck or two. Seems like an interesting idea. Anyone ever try this? I know you can make it so certain geographic locations will be able to work on the hit.

    I'm just curious.


    Thanks

    There's quite a few threads here discussing this very method. Read around a bit in the money making subforum or try the search feature and you'll be good to go.
