Free C# Web Reqest Class – LazyHTTP – cURL like Functionality

December 29th, 2009 No comments

Before I give you the free C# class, I thought I may pass along a bit of a ProTip: it seems to me that the laziest source of income I get is from TextLinkAds. This is just a little protip, but you should really join TLA and slap their plugin onto all of your accepted blogs. You will make money…without doing anything. I’m sick and tired of hearing people complain their sites are indexed but not making money. TLA capitalizes on the fact that spiders at least visit your site, even if real humans don’t. Join and give it a try.

See the class below. If you can’t understand how to use it, you may want to brush up on C# … or get a book or something. Here is LazyHTTP (special thanks to nuls on the Syndk8 Blackhat SEO Forums for cleaning this up):
