    i bet when the person wins the auction, he will send his secret via email and it will read "go to www.google.com and sign up for adsense" or some rubbish like that.
    as far as i can see the only secret to good adsense earning is real traffic and quality content.

    i am quite happy with my adsense earnings (i have only been doing this for a couple of months)

    I started my AdSense business some years ago and now I'm earning from $6.000 to $9.000 / month.
    $6.000 is really onle $6 Dollars. Now, $6,000 would be 6 thousand dollars.

    yep, in mainland europe the notation is different, ie. one million in the US is written as 1,000,000.00 and in Europe it would be 1.000.000,00

    I wouldn't know, you code will be public sooner or later.
    Although I think I would prefer to implement Adsense code myself.
    Takes just a few minutes that it's not even worth to think about the question itself. Then again I might be paranoid, heck if he really wants it just give him a screenshot

    This guy's "secret" is obviously starting eBay auctions which tell people to click on his ads!

    Sensay,
    You're supposed to use the Adsense code exactly as provided by Google. If this person just wants to paste your id into the code in place of his own, it should be okay, but before your give it to him, make sure he doesn't plan to modify the code in any other way.

    The clicker

    Try entering "click my ads" on Google and see how many sites pop up. You just might be surprised.

    This guy writes completely differently in the eBay advert vs. the Mesothelioma site. Odd isn't it?

    I'll give him credit for the fact that it's somewhat of an original way to get people to click on his ads.

    But with that being said, what a really dumb and easy way to get kicked out of Adsense. Did he really think no one would notice what he was trying to do and that he'd be able to get away with this? He deserves whatever's coming his way...

    You think he's trying to get someone else's site banned from adsense?
    It is possible!

    That could be a possibility i mean think about it if you get others sites banned then you may be more likly to get people to your own site and clicking on your ads.

    You know what's funny?

    I just visited ebay, followed the link and found saw the site and thought... this looks familiar. Similar domain (not the same) and the same design as the one this guy has. Different (very different) whois records. I think this guy also stole the design!!!

    Damn you're right. good find!

    This scammer is even dumber than I thought though:

    <meta content="<name removed>" name="Author">

    He forgot to take out the meta tag that holds the name of the Author of the website.
    Weird, because he did manage to change the name of the website in for instance the footer of the website.
