Gaming the system: Building fake websites in order to generate Google bucks

I’m pretty sure that I did not get 27 referrals from yesterday but that’s what my Blogware is reporting. So I checked out their site and they seem to be some sort of aggregator that points to other sites and it is plastered with a row and a column of Google ads. The whole thing seems very suspicious. Would anybody care to comment on this whole business of building fake websites designed to get Google bucks? Then Google passes on the cost of that to their advertisers who are paying for more “eyeballs” but in reality it is for these bogus sites. Has anybody written a really good overview of this mess?
