Jimmy, if you get any visitors other than robots I would be amazed.

sem4u, are you saying these guys are giving unsolicited email advertising a bad name?
| 2:28 pm on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
yeah, thats kinda what i figured ......
this particular example promises no bots - but the whois info tells me alot - for example their email address is a yahoo address ..... hmmm. think it might be time to block some email addresses :)

All unsolicited advertising e-mail is bad.

I've used some that deliver "traffic" for as low as $.005 per "click". It isn't robot traffic but its not exactly a click either. It's a pop-up or under. Whereas the signup rate for the site from G traffic is typically between 1 in 20 to 1 in 35, this type of "traffic" was about 1 in 150 and some people from it did end up becoming paying members.
Found them through AdWords though, not email spam.

We have a script that we have written that tests domains, all it does it pings a domain, refreshes the IP address and pings again. I am sure they use scripts such as these to deliver this "traffic". The best use of these programs is to artificially inflate numbers to show a potential buyer of the site.

I once bought some of these :( and the company that advertises on my site (Burst Media) almost booted me. Due to false impressions....
