or Surfing the Net Anonmously and Having some Fun.
On the weekend, while browsing through http://freelancer.com I came across an intriguing offer-
Basically projects asking for increasing Youtube Views-
So this is one way I though it could be done-
1) Create an IP Address Anonymizer
Thats pretty simple- I used the Tor Project at http://www.torproject.org/easy-download.html.en
Basically it uses a peer to peer network to connect to the internet and you can reset the connection as you want-so it hides your IP address.
Also useful for sending hatemail- limitation uses Firefox browser only.And also your webpage default keeps changing languages as the ip address changes.
Check your IP address at http://www.whatismyip.com/
The Tor Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in the United States. The official address of the organization is:
The Tor Project
969 Main Street, Suite 206
Walpole, MA 02081 USA
2) Creating a Bot or an automatic clicking code ( without knowing code)
Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3863/
Remember when you could create an Excel Macro by just recording the Macro (in Excel 2003)
So while surfing if you need to do something again and again (like go the same Youtube video and clicking Like 5000 times) you can press record Macro
- Do the action you want repeated again and again.
- Click save Macro
- Now run the Macro in a loop using the iMacro extension.
see screenshot below-
Note I have added two lines of code -WAIT SECONDS= 6
This means everytime the code runs in a loop it will wait for 6 seconds and then reload.
However I recommend you create a random number of wait seconds using Google Spreadsheet and the function RANDBETWEEN(5,400) (to limit between 5 and 400 seconds) and also use CONCATENATE with click and drag to create RANDOM wait times (instead of typing it say 500 times yourself)
That’s it – Your Anonymous Bot is ready.
See the analytical results for my personal favourite Streaming Poetry video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5yReaKRHOM
Easy isn’t it. Lines of code written= 0 , Number of Views =335 (before I grew bored)
Note- Officially it is against Youtube Terms http://www.youtube.com/t/terms to use scripts or Bots so I did it for Research Purposes only. And the http://Freelancer.com needs to look into the activities underway at http://www.freelancer.com/projects/by-job/YouTube.html and also http://www.freelancer.com/projects/by-job/Facebook.html and http://www.freelancer.com/projects/by-job/Social-Networking.html
The final word on these activities is by http://xkcd.com or
