    I've seen lots of pligg sites who are spammed by bookmarking tools. Some even have adsense in it. Just wondering what do the owners they gain from it? Mostly the visitors are just automated software.

    They will get some search engine traffic from the spam that hopefully leads to clicks.

    Some hope to get clicks, some hope to sell site showing the traffic, some just don't realize why people submit their links

    ha ha ha.. nice one.. even I tried my hand on a pligg site once, got it to pr3.. but it is of no use as it hardly generates cash.. and google don't respect pligg sites, so no search engine traffic.. finally sold it on flippa.. and after 5 months saw the site shut down..

    They can get traffic for the new content generated by others.

    I build pligg sites because I can rank the site in no time. Google absolutely loves pligg sites right now. I lock my sites up pretty tight, but yes I get spammed. I do however get CPA money, adsense money and aweber leads. Another bonus is that I put all my other websites at the top of the home page always. When I put a subdomain behind a pligg site, it always gets picked up and ranked fast by google. Pligg is very easy money if you're doing it right.

    I just setup a pligg site and started getting submissions within a week. Obviously automated software, but I had a pligg site about 5 years ago when the software was new and it got a PR6. I haven't put any adsense on it yet. I'm going to wait and see what kind of PR I can get, and perhaps flip it on Flippa.

    These low quality bookmarking links are not good for money site. But mass amount of social bookmarking links will be useful for Tier 1, Tier 2 Properties. I use mass amount bookmarking links to get them indexed.
