    I'm referring to the service being sold in this BST thread: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...25-real-geo-targeted-visitors-little-7-a.html

    The OP clearly states:

    You can view the visits coming in here: http://bit.ly/J4iWHg+ (Link provided by umairsheikh2002 to track visitors)

    I purchased the $12 global package to test the service. My campaign was just started. Curious if the claim that this is not bot traffic was true I decided to put it to the test.
    While tailing my access log, I quickly hyperlinked a dot in the footer of my website, and CSS styled it to not show any underline. Seconds later it had already been "clicked",
    and people steadily kept clicking the invisible link. See access log below for evidence.

    The traffic is therefore bot traffic, programmed to simulate human behaviour (clicking a link, waiting, do something else). Too bad bots don't have eyes.

    I don't give a rats ass about the $12. The traffic was for stats purposes anyway, so I don't need a refund if the traffic keeps on coming, bot or not.
    Having said that, the BST is a scam since people buy GEO targeted traffic at inflated prices, thinking somebody might be interested in their offerings while it's just yet another bot.

    Can't believe you were the first one to test that out after it being available for such a long time.
