This is a very old strategy, somewhat sneaky. Use at your own risk!
There are many uses for this. Believe it or not I just saw someone using it, faking referral stats to one of our sites, banking on that fact that we would see it in our analytics and wonder about it. They generated thousands of hits to our site all coming from one domain name. Which of course, me and my team all visited out of curiosity. Not that it worked to convert us into sales, and I doubt it works very well for anyone, but it did generate traffic!
That is just one use for it. Watch the video and let your creative juices flow.
