Eddie, do you have Adsense on your site? If so, I’d be careful at how you attract visitors to any particular post, as Big G is selling your space to advertisers who ONLY want visitors related to their keywords.
So for example, if your post is about “how to build non-targeted traffic fast for a post” and an advertiser WANTS to attract the attention of those interested in that subject, then I think that would be fine.
However, if your post topic is unrelated to the traffic you bring to that post or the traffic is not interested in the topic but visit the post for unrelated reasons, such as racking up the number of visitors just for the sake of increasing site or page visitors, then you risk being banned by Google Adsense totally.
One of my favorite mentors lost over half his business and most of his website revenue as a result of using “live” website pages as examples in his tutorials for students and followers. He wasn’t trying to fake his websites statistics, but what he didn’t realize was that NONE of his followers had any interest in the SUBJECT MATTER of those websites, so ALL his follower/student visits only falsely inflated the stats for those sites, thus increasing the PRICE advertisers had to pay to advertise on his sites.
Since only a fraction of visitors were actually interested in the SUBJECT MATTER, those advertisers paid a falsely inflated price. And that is illegal… a fraud… and so he lost his Adsense account and was banned.
That’s the kind of thing the FTC is very interested in, so you don’t want to be drawing ANY kind of attention to your site that proves you deliberately inflate user statistics. It most always backfires at one point or another.
But even if you don’t use Adsense, there are a host of other reasons NOT to pursue “irregular” means to inflate site statistics. Google it, if you want to research this more.
Just sayin’… be careful what you wish for… as some “experiments” are just not worth the risk of disappearing and becoming anonymous online, lol.
