    I found this blog when harvest. It puts an adsense code in front of everything and a tiny "click to close" just below the ad. Please someone tell me if this is against TOS or not.

    Personally, I wouldn't use anything like that cause I don't think the account would survive a manual review... just my opinion...

    Definitely not blackhat. More like FRAUD.

    There is no way that will last long. It definitely violates the TOS the ads don't even close for me when I click the close link.

    That's not blackhat, that's just stupid. He's begging to get banned when he gets a ridonkulous ctr.
