    Since AC offers money for the views your articles get, can you go to a traffic generation website and pay like $100 for a million unique hits?

    They would find it quickly and ban you. I mean, a 1,000 or many more daily hits to an article (or a bunch of articles belonging to the same writer) without a click on their ads or clicks that follow a "pattern" (bought clicks will generally follow a set pattern) would raise the flag, I think.

    It's not a good idea to buy traffics.They will ban you immediately if find out that you does it.

    Well that idea was shot down pretty fast haha. It would be too easy, your right. I would get my account down for sure. And I make pretty good w/ them as it is. Thanks for the insight.

    Bought traffic will equal a ban from AC. Don't do it, they will catch you.

    Is there an actual rule saying you cannot do it though? I was looking for one and i can't find anything about it... If they ban you, you can easily report it.

    Yes. Just checked. Section 8(i) of the Contractor Agreement, in the part about the Performance Bonus Beta (which starts below the main part of the agreement) located at

    I figured they'd have to have been smoking something unimaginably powerful to not prohibit that!
