Have you been paying ANY attention to what's been happening on the internet in the last several years? Zombies and botnets are created, among other reasons, precisely to make money off sites that pay per click, by directing compromised PCs to go there. Anyone who's ever had the misfortune of witnessing a spyware infestation has seen this for themselves. *
