This my friends is just the beginning, think of what can be achieved by this simple but extremely effective method of click and view. Although its nothing new to anyone who lives or tweets his digital time on the net one must take the time to think about the bold move that they took in directing viewers to a particular site.

So next time, be careful what you read and what you click, then again, its come to a point that no-one is 100% sure of the link that they see is exactly what they are viewing. Virtual boxes and url's are becoming a normal part of the net and since we are talking about millions of dollars, i would simply say sit back and enjoy the roller coaster ride with some popcorn.
