It’s been rather quiet on the click fraud front for the past few months. Either less people are worried about saving money and factoring it into their conversion rates, or they’re just so worried about the economy that they just figured less people are buying per click. ClickForensics thinks otherwise as they have discovered a sophisticated botnet they’re calling “Bahama.”
Essentially this is an automated bug that latches on to the web server and sends automated clicks to paid search like Google AdWords. The problem with this beyond just an automated click fraud device is that this one carries quality score with it. So, that further masks Google’s ability to see that it’s not a human making the search and the click.
Watch your pay-per-click campaigns closely folks. If you see a sudden surge in clickthrough’s, it could be you’ve fallen prey to the great “Bahama”

I just received word that my good friend Byron Walker is hosting a 3-hour workshop in Denver on October 14th at 6:30pm.
Byron is a former HereNextYear client who learned how to do Internet marketing himself so he eventually didn’t need me anymore. I LOVE when that happens!
I had been telling him for months that he should get into affiliate marketing to supplement his income and one day he finally took the plunge.
I won’t tell you exactly how much he makes today, but I will say it’s more than $20,000 a month…exclusively through affiliate marketing.
And, now he even has some products of his own to sell. Sound familiar?
Anyway, here’s what Byron sent to me to send to you to promote this great event coming up. And, it’s only $35….
But, if you use the coupon DISC154, you’ll even get $15 off of that!
Check it out and see you there:

All the best,
P.S. It’s hugely gratifying when my own students and clients make a life change by putting their “I’m not technical” excuses behind them and really make a mark for themselves on the web. Even more exciting is when they start teaching others to do the same. I hope you’ll join me Wednesday, October 14. Here’s that link again with the discount code:
