    There are a lot of spam tools out there that utilize Craigslist, Facebook, Twitter etc. that can drive a lot of traffic to your website, however is using these spam tools against Adsense TOS?

    I mean you aren't encouraging clicks etc, though the way that you get your traffic is a little "grey" area as you are just spamming the crap out of the web.

    Just curious to your guys' thoughts about this.

    Yep you can and will get banned from Adsense. There are threads every day about people getting canned for various types of nefarious behaviour. If you're going to spam, stick to CPA companies that are OK with you doing it.

    Hey guys thanks for the response.

    Ok next question:

    Say you use Clickbank.

    Is it against Clickbank TOS to say spam your website that has a clickbank product affiliate link on it?

    Thanks again.

    Yes, but whether you will get caught / banned or not depends on how blatant your spam is, your spam volume, your sales volume, random chance...

    All networks don't allow spamming in the TOS, but on the sly some will happily allow spam as long as you earn good money and don't generate too many complaints, whilst other networks are 100% strict on not allowing any spam (like those assholes as Peerfly).

    You just have to find networks that fit in to the former category, and not put all your eggs in one basket.

    i know people that make quite a bit of money spamming getting people to go to there adsense pages. Its how you do and just dont blatantly spam everywhere with out any regards. Also with adsense they have a lot of rules and a lot of them are vague its how they ban you when they want to. For example your allowed to buy PPV traffic but they dont say how much or how you can use it.

    Would Backlinks from a Spun Article AMR Blast be particularly bad at all on a adsense website?
