If I read this correctly, it's 8½¢ per impression for adding one line of HTML to all of my pages. Using The Boston Diaries (since it's its own domain) as a reference point—last month I had 75,466 hits which works out to $6,414.61!
Oh wait a second … filter out the bad requests and I have 67,641 hits last month, which works out to $5,749.48.
Okay, I can deal with that—
Remove hits from myself (to be fair), requests other than
agregators and web spiders and now I'm only down to 3,301 views, which works
out to $280.58.
There go my plans for early retirement.
Oh wait … what if I include all my sites?
35,287 visits … $2999.39?
35,000 visits? Still sounds a bit high to me, but in looking over the results, it's probably close enough. There may be something to this then …
Although, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is …

Just a few minutes ago I actually responded to this email asking for details, using the email address listed in the body of the message. Imaging my surprise when my message bounced back, saying that no such address existed.
Makes me wonder how they plan to actually rope people in on this scam.
