UK Likes Click Farming in India
Times of India reports that low-cost IT workers in India are populating what have been described as "click farms" in fake Internet traffic to help British companies boost their online presence, according to a media report. An investigation by 'The Times' newspaper found that western companies are being offered packages costing as little as $1 per 1,000 clicks to increase Internet traffic or purchase 1,000 to 10,000 Facebook "likes" or Twitter followers.
The newspaper's reporter posed as a potential customer for a British singer seeking to boost his online profile and was offered a range of services by several providers in Delhi and Mumbai. "I can give you 1,000 likes on Facebook in six to seven days," Navdeep Sharma, whose company Indian Facebook Likes specializes in what he calls "social media optimization", told the newspaper. "It will take double the time for 2,000 and so on. Once the numbers increase, it will get faster. YouTube views are easier. I can give 3,000-4,000 per day," he said. Sharma said most of his clients were American or British corporates.
