The site: http://olivegarden.myfreshoffers.com/

Hey guys. I ran across a site today that claims to be giving away 2 free vouchers for Olive Garden. After looking at it a bit, I'm pretty sure this site is in now way affiliated with the actual Olive Garden, hence no free vouchers.

The question is this, how is this site benefiting the admin? He isn't asking for personal information like email addresses or phone numbers so all he is getting are no-follow Facebook shares. Any ideas guys?

    Maybe he hates the owner, has some dispute with him? Maybe its his competition? Screwing people around?

    No, "he" = the owner. I'm asking what monetary reason does this site have? Why create a site just to screw with people? There's gotta be something I'm not seeing.

    Uhmmm...

    That's just a simple CPA offer.

    Once they subscribe to FB they get sent to an Olive Garden CPA offer.

    Notice the url tracker414 from the source code.

    Code:
     FB.Event.subscribe('comments.remove',
        function (response) {
          window.location = "http://tracker414.com/pages/olivegarden";
    OP, you sure you aren't trying to hoodwink us?

    Oh no lol, I'm wondering because it seems like such an easy way to get quick traffic. I shared the post on my FB before realizing it was fake, then became interested. Thanks for the response.

    If you want to know what it is why dont you just click on the fbook share and comment. You will see that you will be lead to a CPA offer that will take you through hoops to just get the 2 free dinners. Now I gotta go delete my share. haha

      If you copy & paste that url I posted in the comment above it will also take you straight to the CPA offer without doing any FB likes.

      Lol, at the hoodwink, you never know, we get all kinds in this forum that act like their the first person to ever pull a fast one (spamming affliate offers).
