    Hello everyone,

    I just noticed this advert -

    [​IMG]

    It goes to this website - http://www.clickfaker.co/

    Now in my eyes this "service" is going to be used to help sell scam websites.
    I can't see many people using it. If your bounce rate is really bad, then fake traffic
    is not going to solve it.

    I wonder what do you guys think though, do you think it will be used for good or bad?

    If its being used for bad, then should adverts like this be taken down? Or should BHW support services that fool search engines and investors?

    **note** I didn't create this thread to flame this exact business.

    That decision is not up to us as members. Obviously the owner(s) reviewed the ad before putting it up on the site, so this thread and anyones opinion is pointless.

    Well all know Damien owns this site and its up to him. However I thought it was a nice discussion point, this is a forum after all (we generally share opinions).

    Lots of ads thrown around where ever our eyes go but I don't think members have a say in this. At times, it's painful to the eyes.

    Cheers :)

    It has legitimate uses. Google tracks click through data. Showing them better click through in hope of better rankings is just another blackhat SEO method. I see how it can be used for bad purposes, but that's true for almost anything.
