|As advanced as Google's click fraud algorithms supposedly are, they're still not catching accounts that are producing $100s in revenue a month on poorly designed sites with basically zero real traffic. |
I wonder if these sites aren't just forging the reports. It's not like anyone can just call Google and ask them if they're right.
Can you post a few examples for the rest of us to look at?

I don't think you're any better off buying a site on Flippa than on eBay. Or selling one either with those hefty listing fee/commissions they charge.

@ wa desert rat
Some of them are forged -- others are REAL. They're real accounts producing REAL income from fake clicks. I know this for a fact based on what happened with one of the scammers I mentioned.
When the person buys the site, the fake traffic and fake clicks keep coming and that person THINKS they've bought a legit site. Eventually, they're banned.
I'm just wondering HOW they're able to get away with this, and how these accounts can produce hundreds in fake clicks and go on for months and months before getting banned.

There are some ok deals on there, but when you get below the $10,000 range you're taking a risk.
There's also a lot of overpriced, overinflated crap on there.

There haven't been many months pass by, when on the Amazon forums [over a great many years] when the naive turn up and say something like:
"I purchased this site, I'm getting traffic and clicks but no sales with Amazon..."
Always comes down to the same old - same old - same old - scammers, who charge enormous fees for a boiler plate site. Then try and sell you "more sure fire traffic" at a negotiable price.
I'm told they sometimes get favourably mentioned on daytime TV in America!
I'm not surprised there isn't an AdSense variant.
