    Let's say you were able to fake Google Analytics and make it show the results you want.
    Example: number of direct visits, referrer websites, number of google organic visits from the keywords you want etc.... simply any data shown in the GA.

    What would you do????

    A couple of ideas came to me, like inflate visitors for a website and sell it. Or maybe make some screenshots and put it on your SEO website to impress clients and sell more...

    Would like to hear your thoughts on how you would monetize this...

    I'm sure we have the best people with unlimited imagination here at BHW.

    Hit me with your ideas.

    its easy to fake google analytics results.

    There are many things you can do with that if you want to go down the path of the darkside :D

    Increasing your websites value and visitors with blackhat is one thing, but to use blackhat to scam normal people wanting to buy a website. Bad! I hope karma hits you if you do that.

    karma hit me years ago .... so no worries on my end :D
    I don't want this thread to be a debate on whether is good or bad. I guess we all agree it's bad. I just need to know what would be the possibilities of using such a thing.
    Would like to hear an Whoohoo idea...
