Maybe it's because I'm a marketer not a coder, but I am so impressed with these fu*cking viruses I get on internet explorer. They get me infected, obviously by clicking a link or downloading a file. Then when I try to visit websites, the virus directs me to affiliate sites that are similar hoping I will click links, join, etc. I try to go to ebay it directs me to another auction site, I click on a google site, it takes me to a page full of adsense for those keywords. This must be a gold mine because a lot of people aren't IM savvy. I would think these affiliates would be banned for this since some people probably complain to the merchant, but they probably just register new accounts. Beyond that, a lot of merchants probably turn a blind eye because they are in fact getting hundreds of real customers from it. Is anyone doing this? I just want to know if it's as profitable as I imagine. I can't even get the virus cleared with most of the programs I use, it never gets found. Incredible.
