    Alright, so this was a complete surprise to me. I just recently bought some traffic...you know, that horrible, crappy traffic that was SOOO easy to sell back in the 90's...until everybody realized that it is in fact a complete waste of money...

    Well, anyway, I bought some traffic (5k views for $5.95 or something like that) two days ago. I also bought 1k views from somewhere else for $1.90. I did it simply to decrease my Alexa rank (granted, 5k views won't go very far in decreasing alexa rank, but I bought such a small package so I could see how "legitimate" the traffic is...meaning, is it a bot or real people, and how unique the visitors were).

    The traffic I purchased goes to one site, then does a meta-refresh redirect to another site (so the referrer is no longer the paid traffic source, but the first site they hit). In the past two days I've made $14.37 via AdSense. I don't have AdSense ads anywhere else other than this site.

    congrats. Care to share which source you bought your traffic from? Seems they are clicking at a very high rate for junk traffic.

    I'm not promoting buying junk traffic at all. I said why I purchased it. Literally, the ONLY reason I bought it was to decrease my Alexa rank.

    That's why the title of the thread is "Something I Didn't Expect"

    Normally, I would completely agree with you and say that it IS in fact a complete waste of money.

    I was thinking along the same lines as mobile. Just be careful not to get your adsense acct banned. I would probably try this sort of thing before putting adsense on the site...but of course you didn't expect the clicks on your ads.

    Interesting though!

    Can you explain the REAL TRUE reason for that by giving facts (figures, numbers)? Or is this a plot for flick "banned adsense horror club"?

    Showing eCPM on a public board like this is against adsense terms. You might want to pull the adsense account screenshot to be safe.
