    Hey guys,

    I had a good idea about a program that I am in. Now keep in mind that I am not attempting to spam my link but I am going to have to include the link in the thread so you understand what it is that I am trying to accomplish.

    I am involved in a company where they actually pay me $1 for everyone who downloads the software and then does a search with it 3 times. It's basically a search tool that helps people save money online when they shop.

    It dawned on me today that I could be using proxies or maybe even the hidemyip program and downloading the software and then doing my 3 searches immediately to get my $1

    If someone could check it out and tell me if you think I could get away with it let me know. The link is http://myshoppinggenie.com

    Now you may not be able to download directly from the ordinary page. So my link is http://myshoppinggenie.com/tithes

    So my question is if I change my IP would this work or would I need to do more and is it even possible to pull this off?

    My opinion, don't risk it. Cos though it appears to come from various IP, but its the same search term and within the same period of time. You are easily detectable.

    And when that happens, you risk losing everything and might even land yourself with a lawsuit.

    Well thanks for the advice, I was hoping there would be a way to pull it off. I don't understand how they can even pay someone for downloading it in the first place because there is no guarantee that anyone is going to purchase anything on the back end which is how they obviously make their money.

    It is about conversion rate. They will have mechanism in place to check if you are bringing in good conversion rate.

    If it is good, they pay you. If it's bad, they will give you a good reason and ban your account. ;)
