    Sorry guys, I know this might be one of the most stupid questions you've ever heard, but I couldn't stop myself from asking it, so here it goes:

    Would this method make any sense AT ALL?

    1. Create a legit looking blog/forum/website about a random topic and fill it with good content
    2. Put a few 'high profit' PPC ads on your website
    3. Go to places like fiverr and buy 1000 ad clicks for your website
    4. Create a 2nd auction and buy simple traffic for your website, like 200.000 visitors
    5. ???
    6. Profit

    The idea is to buy profitable ad clicks and keep your (is it CTR? always get those acronyms mixed up) rating low. In our example you'd have 1ad click every 200 visitors (= 0.05). I know this probably doesn't work, because otherwise everybody would be doing it, but since I'm a beginner and would like to know the details of why something does or doesn't work I'd like to know what exactly makes this method not practicable.
    Are the prices for ad clicks/traffic too high? Would the CPA company somehow find out about how you get your traffic and clicks (because I don't see how).

    I'm here to learn, so please explain the flaws in this plan.

    Not with Adsense. Google knows when you're faking. If you find a very lazy PPC network, you may get away with a few clicks but you will get caught eventually, otherwise everyone would be rich from doing this.

    The reason is because the PPC networks know when the offers have converted or not. 0 conversions out of thousands of clicks means they are fake.

    It's a very short term strategy that'll get you a bad name with CPA and CPC networks. Pretty soon you'll be banned on all the networks and you won't have a means to rake in the cash.

    I wouldn't do it. Spam search engines, not the ads providers!
