If you have an email account then no doubt you have received email spam. While everyone hates spam, the sad fact of life is they still make a lot of money for the spammers sending them. Here’s a little PPV/CPV trick you can do to make money off the email spammers.

The next time you receive spam in your inbox, copy and save the links. Then check out what kind of offer the spammer is offering. Generally, it’s in the lose weight, greater sex, better you niche. Find a similar offer from your favorite affiliate network and target it using a PPV network like When it comes time to enter the keywords, use the URLs given by the email spammers. This will trigger your offer when an adware user clicks on the spammer’s link.

Email spammers send out millions of emails everyday and those clicks can provide a nice amount of inventory in which to serve your PPV offers into. It also a pretty evil way to make money off the spammers because you’re popping your offer over theirs.

      Ha ha, strike back as those spammy time-wasters.

  2. This one is showing your depth of knowledge John.

    1. He have been doing this kind of stuff for more than 10 years.

      1. 10 Years … :O

        So you are into this business from past 10 years than I am sure you are a millionaire or may be billionaire.

    Very interesting technique.
    I’ve never heard of this before
    and I don’t understand how the ppv ad can overlay over the spammers link when clicked.
    Let me know if any of you profit, I’m kind of skeptical :p

      I’m in your boat.

  4. I might be missing something, but most affiliate networks etc have rules against spamming in their TOS, right? If I use the links the spammer uses as keywords, will they not mistake me for the person that sends this spam emails out and cancel my account? SY

    1. John Chow says:

      This is not against any TOS of any affiliate network or PPV network. You can bid on any URL you want and since no one will be bidding on the spam link, you’ll get it for the cheapest bid.

      1. But people will complain that they have received spam and include the link? Or not? SY

        1. John Chow says:

          Not. You need to read how PPV works.

          1. Paul B says:

            It’s a brilliant technique – working of the back of the spammers. I can’t see any problems with this, thanks for sharing.

          2. Will do so again, still difficulties to understand this, might well be my own fault! SY

          3. Do we need a landing page for this?

  5. Great stuff! I will have to try that when I learn how.A future project if you will.

  6. That is a very evil way of making money online.

  7. Smart strategy. But I rather don’t play around with spamming because you could easily get banned by your affiliate network.

  8. Aaron T says:

    Yeah I came across this blog because my blog has crossed the 100+ visitors mark…and I’m beginning to consider adding ads.

    This is probably a frowned upon technique, though I may consider using it…

  9. SEO Results says:

    Getting one back on the spamsters sounds cool to me. If you can actually profit from their BS then even better as far as I am concerned. This would be deemed to be a bit of a black hat tactic tho.

  10. Finally a way to get back to those spammers. You are a real deal.

    1. Get back at those spammers?

      I don’t think that John is trying to get back at those spammers. He is using the spammer to get money from clicks on their links.

  11. Dino Vedo says:

    Ahhh i see. So its really hard to not profit, since no one is bidding for that url. So you should be able to serve lots of impressions.

    Plus, if someone actually clicks the link, they already are itnerested in the product… so even higher chances of u getting the sale… :p

  12. fas says:

    Nice trick, do you really do this?

  13. Mike Saf says:

    Nice thinking. Do you really think those spammers make tons of money?

  14. Free Picks says:

    Spamming trick :p

  15. This is epic. In Jony Volks PPV webinar they talk about other uses for SPAM!! I actually created an e-mail address just to collect extra spam 🙂

    1. Would love to get that webinar link

    2. Free Picks says:

      well some site offer email database for spamming as well

  16. Roshan Ahmed says:

    That’s a useful information. And what would we call it “Scamming the Spammers“. This is really cool. Guess it’s one of your own ways of fighting spam.

  17. Tyler says:

    I really didn’t understand anything you just said. Though the idea just sounds incredible brilliant. I’m gonna take a look at the articles that you wrote at the bottom for people who didn’t understand.

  18. The beauty of Gmail…i empty that puppy out every week…they go straight there 🙂

    1. SEO Results says:

      🙂 Me got the gmail bufferzone too. My regular inbox is just not the place for all the marketing splurb and promo offers. It works a right treat.

  19. Eunus Hosen says:

    Another great technique comes from John. Thanks for sharing.

  20. Kasey says:
