    I recently got an amazing idea - after which I couldn't fall asleep for 2 days. However, it's blackhat ... it's tricking visitors into clicking adsense banner without them realizing it. I am not using any Clickjacking or any other script.. people actually do see and click the actual ads on the site. The important part is that there is no extra script installed AND my Google Analytics Stats CTR is LESS than 3% and I am still able to earn around 140$ a DAY instead of my regular $50 with this method.

    However, I am fucking scared to get my High traffic 3000 UV/day WHITEHAT blog - Adsense account suspended since all Traffic (95%) is coming from Yahoo & Bing Search Engines.

    I need your opinion guys IF Analytics STATS are PERFECT and my site is whitehat (SE Traffic) and I get less than 3% CTR on Google Ads... I believe there is no possibility that it will trigger any alert for a Google Team to go and check my actual site?? I don't think they have time for that to check millions of adsense sites.. I believe they do so only when ADSENSE ROBOTS trigger an alert when something unusual such as high CTR or Purchased/Unknown traffic sources, etc. appear.

    It's my main account, and I don't want to lose it, but the money is TRIPLE EVERYDAY so it's hard to make a final decision to DISABLE this method or NOT.. Sorry cannot reveal my idea but I would greatly appreciate any CONSTRUCTIVE ADVICE if given whitehat traffic and stats I could still get my account Suspended.

    PS: and now that my account registered high daily revenu.. if I disable my method.. it will drop back to $50 a day.. and that too will look suspicious.
    Don't know who else to ask.

    if you are "tricking" them to click it, you could lose your account... It really depends how much of a "trick" it is, as G may just disable your account until you fix the issue. It is really hard to determine the severity of the "trick" without knowing the "trick".

    actually in IE that method does not work - which 55% of my traffic uses.. however, in other browsers it works.. I just need to know if google uses IE in their offices or their actual CHROME browser in which my method works and I don't want them to see it.. If they use IE it's great! what you guys think? how can I find out what BROWSER they are using?

    Geez, I'd be tempted to keep doing it. How common is it to lose an adsense account for this?

    HAHA Google never ever uses IE.
    They use Chrome mostly, but Firefox aswell.

    As of your trick, only you can know if it works if you TRY it.
    All the thoughts that you can do, you have already done.

    1. because is TRIPLE monthly Revenu ~ 4500USD a MONTH from just 1 blog!
    2. because they will hardly find out if my CTR<3% AND if they check my site with IE ;)
    3. I heard stories here when people lose their 6K a month accounts for no reasons and they don't even give an explanation.. so might as well take a risk.
    but this income even 1500 a month is not bad as well in order to lose it.. cuz it's not ALL Blackhat. my bounce rate is less than 2% as well.

    Thank You! So I guess I'll disable this. Maybe better register another adsense account under my family member name on different C-class IP, and try it there? However, it will be new gmail and adsense account.. that's the problem.

    Google will not check your site unless you CTR goes crazy high..

    You should get another Adsense account and build a similar one or two
    page website and then redirect your visitors via some links from your main site
    and then let your method rip on your second test site.. that way if G ban's your
    dummy/test site adsense account you will still have your original whitehat site

    Well, the best way to check out this is to buy/set up another Adsense account, and start a new blog, linked with this account.

    Use your method for a few weeks, and you'll know yourself whether the method is risky.

    How do you know your idea hasn't already been used in the past, and google very much knows how to detect it during manual inspection?
    I don't think google is stupid, and they must have come along a lot of tricks that people tried to use to get more Clicks.

    So i'd be carefull, be happy with $50 /Day, you will be kicking yourself in the head if in a couple of days/weeks/months they are going to ban your adsense account and refund your earnings.

    That's the challenge, and the solution to your problem.

    Quick way would be to buy a new site at Flippa that already has a significant amount of organic traffic, and then test your account on it.

    How are you going to explain the poor ROI for the advertisers?. Your tracking only the part of your server, but you're missing everything else

    this I never understood that.. how can google even know if a sale is made from the ad Click-through? I mean they only send the visitor from my site to their site and business ends there.. no? how do they know if a visitor buy something from that site or not? ONLY if that Advertiser installed a tracker to tell it to google - which most advertiser don't. or maybe do.
