This is a pretty simple idea that I've yet to experiment with, but would love to hear some feedback on. Also, I'm not sure on how ethical this method is, but the concept is so simple, I don't see where the line is crossed.
First, locate a company that pays you $0.XX per click. In the past I've come across sites that pay $0.05 to $0.10 per unique referral. This doesn't mean Adsense, but companies that give you a special URL with a tracking ID. Here's an example:
I'll try and locate the sites I've come across in the past and mention them here.
Ok, now that's done, we need to get some unique visitors to visit our special address. There are several options to consider, but the most noticeable are pay per click campaigns. Setup a campaign in Adwords, AdCenter, Yahoo! Search Marketing, or wherever. Bid lower than what you're being paid (I recommend $0.01-$0.02 per click) and launch the campaign!
Another way to drive traffic is to find a traffic service site that sells packages of unique visitors. Some advertising networks offer 5,000 unique visitors for $0.005. That's less than a penny per unique visitor! Make sure the destination URL of whichever method you decide to follow through with is the URL provided by your CPC company.
Here's some Adwords math:
1,000 clicks @ $0.02 per click is $20 1,000 unique referrals @ $0.05 each is $50 $30 profit
Rinse and repeat for $60, $90, etc..
Here's some paid traffic math:
5,000 visitors @ $0.005 per visitor is $25 5,000 unique referrals @ $0.05 each is $250 $225 profit
Talk about a huge return of investment. Anyone else seeing results implementing this method?
