    So a few weeks ago I was reading on here about affiliate programs, upcoming projects and such, so I had a dig around, set up a page on a crappy website I have and spammed loads of links to it. It just took an hour and I never put much thought into it, thinking I was just wasting my time.

    Yesterday I received a notification from Paypal that the program had deposited $30 into my account for referral fees. A quick Google of the brand and I'm the result below the actual brand for the two key search terms I targeted. Totally unexpected money from an half arsed attempt at making any.

    I may have to put a little effort into this and see what happens.
