Building traffic for adsense

adsense, traffic, redirected urls

I'm planning on using redirected urls (old addresses that still recieve traffic) to build traffic on my site featuring google adsense.

Does this break adsense rules?

i don't think it voilates the TOS,
but as they have also mentioned that anything other than what has been stated in TOS could also be illegal.

i think the best way is to ask google adsense support.
they will definately reply

It's kinda like asking "am i allowed to link to me site because I run Adsense on it?" Their should be no reason why this wouldn't be allowed. :)

If you're talking about buying lowball traffic, be careful of dumping untargeted traffic directly to "money" pages, and be sure you know exactly where the traffic comes from.

I looked at a couple of those networks, and if you read the fine print you discover that they may also be loading your site as a popunder, and basically using any other possible technique (I shudder to think) to generate unsuspecting traffic.
