I do see the occasional MFA site but what I am seeing alot of are websites that appear MFPPC (Made For PPC). Meaning they serve a search result on topic and get paid if a user clicks on a link.
I'm seeing more and more of these and i'm only checking a portions of the ones that my users have clicked on, let alone the ones that they havent.
Is anyone else seeing this?
How the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks can they make money?
or are they just spending marketing money at a loss to hopefully gain regular traffic later?

Just to play devils advocate here.. What's wrong with a site that drives traffic through to affiliate programs using PPC? Don't you purists monetize your own traffic? I see nothing wrong with this practice and neither do my merchants who make money from my efforts.
Wouldn't that be a better topic for the Advertising Sales and Affiliate Programs forum? This is the AdSense forum, so the relevant question here would be about using PPC to drive traffic through to made-for-AdSense sites.
OH... and mrSEman, I do make money from doing this. At least $4 for every $1 I spend on PPC listings.
Maybe I should of mentionned that I also use low end PPC to drive traffic to some of my websites and I do make money sometimes even 3:1. However, I only bid a few pennies at most and I make money because the high end PPC Adsense ads on my site pay way more than what I'm paying.
Firstly, what I'm saying is I cant see myself doing the reverse, paying the high price on adwords to send traffic to my low end ppc search results and still make money.
Secondly, we all talk about MFA ads and why we dont like them... what it boils down to is we dont like them because were lucky if we make 5 cents per click on an ad for an MFA site in a niche sector where there are plenty of non MFA ads that pay well. My point here is that these MFPPC site fall into the same category as MFA because they cant pay the large amount per click and still make money... and I am seeing alot more of them than MFAs.
