Site encourages violation of pay-per-click rules.
Ever wonder why advertisers want to opt out of domain name advertising? Fraud. Here’s just another example that went live yesterday: highlighterz.com.
Highlighterz purports to help you generate paid parking income without violating parking service terms of service:
HighLighterz, find what you need. We provide your PPC web page to all internet users, without violating the PPC rule of no web sites linking parked domain names, to drive traffic. “Only type in and search engine results”. How it works, Find a site that interest you then highlight it copy and paste it to your browser. And click away on relevant links. Find what your looking for. That’s it. Have Fun!
Let me make this clear: encouraging people to click on your parked domains is a violation of almost all parking companies’ terms of service.
Services like this are ruining the domain industry. Latecomers poke, prod, and swindle their way to clicks on domains that don’t get any traffic. Sorry, folks. If your domain doesn’t get any traffic, you need to develop it or get it into search engines if you want to generate revenue. There’s no free money.
It will be difficult to police Highlighterz because it’s unclear if the domain owners actually submitted their domains for the service. For example, there’s one good generic domain owned by a famous domainer on the page. Trust me, this domain gets more type-in traffic than it needs, and there’s no way this domainer would submit it to this service.
Do the industry a favor. When you see a service like this, let the owner know you don’t appreciate it. Your livelihood depends on it.
