Anyone know if visitor boost is legal to advertize on for my hubpages, I dont want to get into trouble with hubpages or with google adsense, and just got around to reading the newbie stuff on adsense, and I am not sure if it says yeah or neay to it.
I'd err on the side of caution and say no.
Why? Because Google doesn't like link farms/link exchanges. And that sounds like it's bordering on one.
You pay to buy pop under ads for your site on various sites throughout the world. Is that legal? In the meantime I am erring on the side of caution.
Google AdSense does not accept buying traffic, either.
those are community forums and no staff response exists so would never be useful as a source of evidence.
the traffic buys the forums you linked to describe would be a violation but are not the same as the traffic buy described by the op.
the distinction is in terminology, not principle
I would consider the visitorboost program to be against adsense TOS and in turn not of any use for an HP publisher.
The OP described it poorly and should most likely not being pursuing any paid traffic at this point.
I was under the impression that it was not allowed too. This from the Adsense Program Policies:
To ensure a positive experience for Internet users and Google advertisers, sites displaying Google ads may not:
* Use third-party services that generate clicks or impressions such as paid-to-click, paid-to-surf, autosurf and click-exchange programs.
Not that I would ever used paid traffic services, mind you, but did I misunderstand?
if more specific phrasing was used, then sometimes
this service is described in this thread as purchasing pop under ads. Buying ads to promote a site is not disallowed.
What is a "pop under" ad? Is that those banners that you roll your mouse over and they expand?
its an ad designed to circumvent pop up blockers.
the least annoying ones usually look like footer toolbars. They are the windows that appear "behind" your current window and you often dont notice until you close your current window.
when you suddenly hear annoying videos playing and you dont see them - thats usually a pop under
Yes, it purchases ads, pop under ads specifically, that promote a site, they have to click the ad, if they dont click the ad, they are not sent to the site, just like a pop up ad in that respect. I think I will stay away from it for now. They do not stop showing the ad until a specific number of the ads are clicked.

I was just wondering how successful people are with the Hubpages ad program and if anyone had managed to make payout in one day yet. I have yet to earn over $5 in one day from the ad program. How about everyone else?
