Interesting cursor trapping technique described by SEOBlackhat.
“The reason the search engines force the cursor to the search box on their sites is the same reason you should do the same on your site: to make more money”
He includes code that will help you achieve this using Google Adsense for search. Interesting stuff!
I can’t find anything in the terms and conditions that would specifically disallow this technique, unless it comes under the general category of altering the Adsense code block.
“Iâ€™m about 99% sure this is kosher with Google (after all, they do it themselves!). Matt, if you could give this method a thumbs up Iâ€™m sure everyone would appreciate it.”
It will be interesting to see if he gets a response.
