Adsense Clicks on Fiverr

Hello. I notice that on Fiverr if you search for adsense clicks there are a few gigs that offer the service that they will click on your ads. I filter by rating and chose the top 5. They all have about 94% success rating with lots of smiles faces and hardly any dislikes.

Alot of people are commenting that they were making money for months already using this gigs over and over.

I was wondering if anyone can advice before I make a stupid mistake and get my adsense account suspended or banned. Then having to appeal your adsense account and winning the case is hard.

Thanks

    If you're goal is to slap a site on the internet, whip out your adsense code and make a quick buck, then it's worth a try.

    But if you plan on doing anything long term with SEO or adsense, then stay away from it. It's hard to get away with nonsense like that from the most intelligent company in the world.

      Well I have not done it yet. That is why I was just asking. I payed here on wf for 4 sites back in august that they build me 4 premium sites. I just never added the adsense codes to them. I pay alot of money to get them build.

      I think I will just buy a few linkwheel that include social bookmarking, profile and blog commenting links, and a few edu and gov backlinks and just try to get my site to the first page and get links the natural way.

      Sorry I was not trying to do anything ilegal, I am new to this and I just wanted to know if this would work without you getting your adsense account in trouble. I do not want to click on my own ads, I know that is wrong obviously.

      Thank you

    Fiverr should add a Report button to report gigs like that.

    If you do this you'll get your quality score reduced as none of the traffic will convert and it will hurt you in the long run. Don't order the gig, but report it to fiverr.

    Not only would it be a very bad idea to do this because you risk getting your adsense account banned you also would essentially be stealing from the advertisers because the "clicks" would be from a person or a bot with no intention of buying anything and no interest at all in what the ad is promoting.

    There are lots of gigs like these in the internet - not only in fiverr. If it doesn't sound legit (and it's not, if you read AdSense guidelines), stay away from it.

    I believe by knowingly defrauding companies of their money it is considered theft...

    You would be stealing money not only from Google, but also from their advertisers. You know better. You were just hoping someone would give you approval to steal so you would not feel responsible after you did it.

    Then you could come back here in a week crying and writing up the next "Google Banned My Account" thread.

      I would HIGHLY advise against this. Google will find out something fishy is going on and you will get banned and lose your account permanently! - it's just not worth it for a few measly bucks.

      If you're serious about making money online I would recommend looking for a much more stable & long term business model - such as creating informative sites that provide value to your viewers - and then add adsense.

    Advice: Don't do it.

    What's a few meager dollars worth in contrast to building a lucrative long-lasting income with adsense?

    If you concentrate on the big picture and the big goals - that's the direction in which you'll head. If you concentrate on the nickels and dimes (and things like click-fraud) - that's the direction in which you'll head.

    And yes, sooner or later, all those getting clicks via fraud will be found out by Google. They may not even end up with a few extra dollars, as Google will close their accounts before they get anything at all.

    Lol, that would be funny If it was Google/Adsense running a fiverr gig, just to clean house.

    Good luck with that.

    I would stay away from such black-hat techniques to make money, it's not worth it in the long run, you don't want to spotted as a fraudster, in which case you are at risk of getting your AdSense account banned.

        The knuckleheads on fiverr just keep coming up
        with even more crapola.

        Why anyone would pay for anything SEO, website,
        IM, etc. related is way beyond me.

        Unless you just like opening up your websites to
        knuckleheads.

        Stupid is as stupid does.

        I gotta give you some "credit" for posing the question. You
        certainly should have known, however, that the
        whole thing was just dumb. And maybe you did,
        but the lure of a fast buck was enticing. When
        you think about such things, fight the urge. Too
        many people here lose their adsense for less.

        I think many people believe that getting "friends"
        to click ads is just fine. They probably think, hey
        just click an ad that you actually are curious about.
        What's the harm, right?

        But AdamV said it best. Not only is it stealing, but it
        makes google take a harder line against dumb and dumber.

        That's not good for any of us. It puts everyone under
        more scrutiny. And they do most banning by computer-algo.

    Usually, I say there is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid answers. Seems the OP knew full well this could get him in trouble but just wanted to have an opinion. So to reiterate what all have said, not a good idea. Google is not stupid.

    Semutdesign earlier said don't ruin another man's business. I would report those doing this on Fiverr and anywhere else. First, I don't consider this a business, at least not a long-term viable one. Second, it's fraud by both the seller and buyer. Third, I believe it is in Fiverr's interest as well as their users, buyers and sellers, to remove these things.

    I agree with you Paul, why would you think that for $5 someone can create a great web site or do good SEO. I have started on Fiverr about one month ago. I create a campaign for one product, one landing page. Yet, I got a query of "so you'll research and give me hundred keywords?". Fat chance. This is just $5 buddy. I think he understood and bought the gig.

    The purpose is not to make tonnes of money directly. At that price and Fiverr taking $1, I don't make a profit, far from it. The purpose was further promotion of my business. Of the five gigs done so far, one has become a client so worth hundreds more, thousands even, a client I would not have found otherwise. That's the value to those offering gigs. Sure, there's lots of crapola, other gigs are for fun or just plain weird. But buyers have to realize they won't get the moon, just a $5 chunk of it. Sellers can't think they will make a living this way, at least selling only $5 gigs.

      Stay away from anything that manipulates adsense in a dishonest way. Over several months I was testing many traffic delivery gigs, and most were mediocre to OK. However, unkown to me one of those sources resulted in clicking of an adsense ads. Google banned my adsense account and did not give me the money I had in my balance. And there is very little recourse in getting that account back. The people at Google are very smart (just look at all the info in google analytics) and they have ways of determining foul play. So try to play fair.

    Don't risk it. It's against the rules of Adsense to paid people to click on your ads...

      You get a group of people who are willing to click ads....then you have them each go on your Fiverr gig to tell you how great the service is and how much money they are making (we already know they have no scruples)...

      ...and then people who KNOW this is against the terms of adsense buy the gigs because there are so many "positive" responses. Ya think?

      And then they come here to complain about a banned adsense account.

        Damn you guys are jerks. I was just asking. I am new to internet marketing and I am trying to learn how things works. That is why I came and joined the warrior forum to learn not to be freaking jumped on.

        Thank you for your hard comments and I will make sure not to ask anything anymore as you guys seem to know the answer to everything and treat new people like crap.

        When someone doesn't know anything be helpful and have respect when answering a question, there is no need for disrespect someone you don't even know.

          I think everyone has seen so many people on this forum say they've been banned by Adsense & at the same time claim they didn't do anything wrong (which I'm sure is BS for the majority of banned people).

          Seriously do a forum search for something like "adsense ban", they all claim they are innocent & Google is screwing them over for no reason, most of us on this forum know their only telling us the things that make them look good & Google look bad.

          That fiverr gig is a good example of how to get an instantly banned Adssense account.

          I'm not flaming you, just trying to explain why most folks that haven't been banned by Adsense get aggravated when seeing scams like the fiverr/Adsense gigs.

          My advice is stay away from anyone that claims they will boost your Adsense income. If they will steal from Google, imagine what other scams they will use against you.

    What would possibly make you want to do this? There's no money in it simply because your account WILL get slapped before you can take those ill gotten gains to the bank. This is why: You need at least $100 in the account before you get paid. That means you need high CPC niches to get that quickly. Imagine the algorithms monitoring your account. There's little to no activity. Suddenly, there's new content and big $$ clicks all from a network that's probably being investigated/red flagged already. Before you can say "I'm stupid!", you're banned.

    I'm not trying to be harsh either but think about it for a second. If it was that easy everyone would be doing it. I would love to put up a few sites in markets like insurance and lawyers and such that pay very high amounts per click and then just pay someone on fiverr or run a bot to click the links all day while huge checks get sent to my mail box.

    It's not that easy because by clicking the links just to click them and make some money you are defrauding the advertisers. If you put up a site and get traffic to that site and then visitors to your site see the ad and decide to click on it because it actually interests them, that is what the advertisers are looking for.

    If only there was a way to pay someone to push a few buttons and have checks sent to you. That would be awesome.

  • Fiverr is the kind of site that is trendy.

    What is hot right now, is not even allowed next month. And just because some people are happy with it, doesn't make it a good idea.

    Plus, there is an argument to be made that this is stealing! You aren't delivering traffic, you are essentially clicking them yourself! Don't believe me? Try paying to have somebody killed and see what the punishment is when they get caught and give you up...

    Just sayin'...

    That type of gig is very immoral, and probably criminal as well. I can't believe that no one at Fiverr is moderating what gigs are posted there. These gigs are definitely theives for hire.

    Run very far away from the idea of doing this.

    Don't do it. And don't let anyone else convince you otherwise. You're rolling the dice with your account and the odds are not in your favor.

    Also, don't forget about the advertisers who are actually paying for these clicks. They're getting ripped off. This is one of the main reasons why I try to avoid the content network when working with Adwords.
