Illegal ways to Earn through ADSense

Originally posted by Aamir Atta at ProPakistani blog.

We all know that people on internet are legitimately earning thousands of dollars per month through Adsense – of course this is nothing new to you and we have discussed many case studies before on this topic.

But today, I am going to reveal those individuals and teams which are exploiting youngsters to earn illegally through Adsense. These teams are formally working in an organized manner, through which they prepare a team of around 1000 members -  where every member cross clicks other’s website and ultimately everyone earns money.

For the purpose, two investigative teams visited such so-called companies separately, and findings were really shocking for me at-least.

eNews Copyright

Pakistani news channels and news websites are really hot these days due to continuous crisis in country. I mostly read news on BBCUrdu.com. But whenever I want to get almost real-time news online, I mostly see Geo / Aaj TV websites.

Today I found an interesting thing, News about Punjab assembly session on stairs out side Assembly Hall. Yes .. it is itself quite interesting but my topic is little different. I noticed that textual news on Geo and Aaj TV websites was 100% same. Not even a comma or full-stop difference.

See below and read text of both images. First one is from GEO and second one is from AAJ TV. Screenshots taken on Thursday Feb 26, 2009 from GEO and Aaj Tv websites.

Google Launched Chatback

From GoogleTalk blog ..

Do you have a blog, online profile, or some other personal web page? Would you like to communicate more with your visitors? Today we’re launching a new Google Talk feature that lets visitors to your web site chat with you. We call it “chatback” because instead of you doing all the talking on your blog, your visitors can talk back to you. Sure, they could leave comments, but those are public and hard to use for a real conversation. With chatback, it’s a real instant message session.

To use chatback, you must have a Google Talk account … but your visitors don’t have to! They don’t even need to have an email address, or to have ever used instant messaging.

Find great websites, videos, photos and more based on your interests

I’m a HUGE stumble fan. This is how StumbleUpon Team describes it. “Surf the internet with the StumbleUpon toolbar to find great websites, videos, photos and more based on your interests. StumbleUpon learns what you like and makes better recommendations. Connect with friends and share your discoveries, meet people that have similar interests, and check out what other people are discovering.”

StumbleUpon is a web browser plugin that allows you to discover and rate webpages, photos, videos, and any thing on the web. These webpages are shown when you — known as a Stumbler — click the “Stumble!” button on the toolbar. StumbleUpon chooses which new webpage to display based on the your ratings of previous pages, ratings by your friends, and by the ratings of users with similar interests. i.e. it is a recommendation system which uses social networking principles. You can rate, or choose not to rate, any webpage with a thumbs up or thumbs down. Toolbar is available for Firefox and Internet Explorer.

You must give it a try, I am sure you will not think about un-installing it.

StumbleUpon can be used to effectively increase traffic if you only knew how to use it. Here are few useful links.

Free SMS to any Mobile Number in Pakistan

SMS has become a popular way ( it will not be wrong if I say Most Popular way ) in Pakistan to communicate with your friends and relatives. Keeping this in view, different mobile service providers including Warid, Telenor and Ufone launched different packages for sending tons of SMS at a low price. Most Internet users, including me, used smspk.com and similar sites till recent past for Web2SMS. This is still popular but
Warid is providing this Web2SMS service only to Warid connection holders.
– Other Mobile operators in Pakistan require a reply SMS from mobile user to initiate the Web2SMS.
– Delivery of SMS has been an issue in recent past.

Few days ago I discovered a nice web-site monis.pk for such Pakistanis who use Web2SMS. This site is based on invitations. To get an invitation, post a comment with your mobile number or enter email address.

positives

– There is no need for java support in your browser.
– The thing I liked the most is this that you can send SMS to any number of any connection in Pakistan from one page without the need of navigating to other pages.
– SMS delivery has not been a problem so far.
– Your contacts are added in your friend’s list .. and you can choose their numbers easily.

negatives

– Very few SMS support. Only 4 credits are given to you on registration. And 3 more credits are given when any invitation is accepted and your contact registers. And you can send 1 SMS per credit. To overcome this, one must invite hundreds of friends and make them register.

The site is in alpha stage .. hopefully they will soon upgrade it and will give more credits to site members.
