    I have a tech forum that was offline for years. I then installed a brand new forum for family and friends, but I installed it in a different folder so no one would no how to get there. I then had around 400 new users in 1 hour. My site is not popular and not ranked in the search engines. I have installed 2 spam plugins and it stopped. My question is how can I make some cash from the spam people will they click adsense links etc?

    Any thoughts please let me know.

    Chances are they're just bots so I don't think you'll be able to make anything off of them

    Most likely you won't be able to do nothing with this bot traffic.

    However you might want to let them be for a while, that way your stats will look good. Then down the road monetize your website somehow and use the traffic stats as traffic proof.
