    Ahoy! Fellow BHW members!

    I have recently been checking my Blogger stats and have noticed some website urls that are supposedly sending traffic to my blog. This is quite clearly not the case, as when I click the link I am promptly sent to a linkbucks link that conveniently forwards to a landing page that does not feature a link back to my blog.

    I am interested in this super sneaky method quite simply because I actually clicked the link out of curiosity, earning this Blackhat promoter some linkbuck cents.

    I suspect a long list of blogger blog urls and a ping the refer software such as maybe scrapebox was used to incorporate this method, and was wondering what other BHW members thought about this method?

    This is happening to me now too. It is weird. I'm taken to some website for weightloss pills.

    Where do you think? BHW :)

    i have one blog on warez which gets traffic from those sources where i never submitted my link on. I checked those sites and they just list files where my file got listed somehow (linkbait may be) and that's sending me traffic on daily basis!

    Do you have something like this?
