Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Maybe the difference between them is that MFA's may have at least a smidgeon of content. The click trap I refer to has one adlinks unit and three adblocks on one page - nothing else. Oh, and the back button was disabled.
Anyway, given that there seems only a small chance of Google booting you for having a pure clicktrap, is it a profitable business model?
My experience of being an adwords avertiser is not overly successful. I want people to visit the site, but it would also be nice if some of them clicked on the ads too. The reason they didn't, and I suspended the campaign for a while was content - I have shedloads of it. However, this time around my current campaign is very good at appearing above the other scammers - click price is enough to be at the top, but low daily budget.
So the business model for my new site:- A clicktrap as described above (no content - only way to exit is via an ad) and adwords. A couple of $ a day in adwords should be repaid by loads of clicks on the ads. Simple and foolproof!
Now all I need is suggestions for a topic.
I'm sure Google gets thousands of these and they have to prioritize them, investigate the site, probably contact the site owner and wait some period of time to see if they respond and/or fix their site, etc.
Nether was mine. I have to question if people really are making money, other than Google of course.
Advertising with AdWords and making profit just isn't as easy as slapping a few AdSense ads on your website.
