Fake clicks in Google Adsense

Google Adsense is now a very popular service and it is getting more and more difficult each day to get an approved adsense account. Being such popular it still lacks the inablity to detect the reals IP behind a VPN service. Since Adsense does not check the original source of clicks coming from IP provided by a VPN service, Adsense can be tricked into rewarding money to website owners, literally giving money away. To do this all a website owner has to do is following:
  • Get an approved adsense account
  • Add advertisements on his/her website
  • Now go to any VPN service (providing a PPTP) 
  • Use it to visit his own site
  • Click on advertisement displaying on his own site.
To take advantage of this method, website owner can different VPN services over some time so as to not arouse any suspicion.
Some of the free services that can be used are:
 and many others.
Note:  This method may work on almost all adsense like services.

Post Blank Status on Facebook

Today I found this amazing trick by which you can update your status to blank as shown in the picture.

Status Update without any content

 Recently, facebook added a new feature by which you can tag people, posts, pages and groups using their unique id or username. For example, if the page has a username funstartshereblog you can tag the page simply by adding @[funstartshereblog:0] as a part of your status.

Now Facebook has not registered anyone with id = 0, so if you post @[0:0], facebook will consider that your post has content but when posted there will be no content in your post and your status will be blank. Please note that this trick does not work while commenting.

Blogger Local Domain Redirection

As you might have noticed, blogger is now redirecting blogs to country specific blogs rather than ".com" domain, i.e. if you are visiting this blog from India you will see the URL as
"".  The direct implicaiton is that this will help blogger to control the presentation of the content based on the geographical location of the user and hence be able to apply country specific restrictions on the content as demanded by the various countries.
Blogger has also enabled a workaround this restriction. Just add"\ncr" just after the domain name. NCR stand for No Country Restriction. So instead of visiting the blog at "", use the url "" and be free form the country restrictions.
