Default scam or not

I read about bringing tons of visitors to your site by not doing anything. Is this a scam or not? [SNIPPED]

Peace!

If you tell just 5 people about your website, and those 5 each tell 5 more, 5 becomes 25, becomes 125, becomes 625, becomes 3125, becomes 15625...
That is a TEXTBOOK example of a pyramid scam. The promise of oodles and oodles of cash only reinforces the fact that it is one.
