Not technically true. The web site advertisers get paid for clicks, they don't have any connection to the fact a sale is made. It's up to the buyer of the ads to determine if his ads are generating revenue.

hence the term "click bait". another aspect I'm suspicious about is "forced layout clicks" ... this is when you don't click but do anyway because the layout of the page isn't done although it appears to be....anyway not sure this a real one or just seems like it to me. I notice it on phones and flat panels but not desktops.
