Viewership increase

    I came here straight from another forum thread wherein IzzyM was decrying the increase in viewership of his hubs brought on by some trolls.
    I do not understand. It is good that your viewership increases, isn't it? Will someone educate me?

      The site that the troll posted the blog on is a click exchange site - these kind of sites are against Google's TOS as they essentially give a site additional views that they wouldn't have gotten normally and could lead to additional Google Adsense income. As most people on these type of sites only stay on the site for 15-30 seconds then it's a fraudulent way of getting extra traffic!

      Google will often ban the Adsense account of the recipient hence IzzyM's worries!

      The reason is in the thread.  Bad traffic (like exchanges) can cause them to take away your adsense account on the assumption that you are trying to cheat the system.

    I thought so, lol. I'm working to increase my search engine traffic and not necessarily traffic from the hubbing community. While traffic from other hubbers is nice, steady traffic from search engines will help set you up for the longer term. I suspect Izzy's internal traffic went up and his search engine traffic stayed consistent with where it's previously been. Just a theory.

    Izzy's problem was that traffic was coming from a disreputable source in the form of a paid for links site - this is against Google TOS and may lead to your account being suspended!!!

        Basically remove Google Ads from the Blog, contact the 'click' site to get her blog removed and let Google know there is a problem!
