    Besides cookie stuffing amazon and ebay which are the best (am i right?) for mainstream traffic, any other good uses for it? maybe it can generate youtube views?

    I like the youtube idea, just keep in mind the whole page will load so if your video is 2+ mins every user will notice something weird going on (but then again, does it really matter?).

    Good idea would be to redirect the traffic to a site which has a traffic control script on it, so you could load in 2-3 videos a day and make sure every video only gets 30-50k views (enough for most viewed for the day).

    And while we are at it: you could fake meta'c4fe views and earn 5$ per mill. mmmmmh

    I just created a page and a series of fresh videos to test this theory and it does not appear to work with FireFox or IE7. If anyone has any proof to the contrary, I'm all ears. We tried both a basic .htaccess redirect and a blind meta-refresh. The blind meta-refresh seemed to load some information from YouTube, but the view count never increased.

    Any thoughts?

    EDIT: Thanks Pofecker and Damien15 on IRC for their help testing.

    This is 100% true. Whichever method you use to call a page from an image only the headers will be processed.
