AdSense Vigilanteism

Here's a neat trick if you want to help maintain the integrity of the AdSense network when you run across some ignorant blogger or some other idiotic web site with calls to "click the ads" on their web page.

Posting the following snippet below from the AdSense Policies page into their online comments has resulted in the "click the ads" requests being yanked sometimes instantly when the webmaster shit their pants thinking big brother must've done it.

Try it, just cut and past the following in someone's page as comments:

Google AdSense Program Policies


Web pages may not include incentives of any kind for users to click on ads. This includes encouraging users to click on the ads or to visit the advertisers' sites as well as drawing any undue attention to the ads. For example, your site cannot contain phrases such as "click here," "support us," "visit these links," or other similar language that could apply to any ad, regardless of content. These activities are strictly prohibited in order to avoid potential inflation of advertiser costs. In addition, publishers may not bring unnatural attention to sites displaying ads or referral buttons through unsolicited mass emails or unwanted advertisements on third-party websites. Publishers are also not permitted to use deceptive or unnatural means to draw attention to or incite clicks on referral buttons.

Funniest amusing shit ever and it's FREE!

Not to mention you may be saving your own source of income by stemming the tide of advertiser withdrawl of the AdSense content network so it's a win-win.
