    I have a couple of offers that I am promoting through an ewhoring method I learnt on here. I have hundreds of these horny losers messaging me 300 times a day and I have posted links to a website that I have WP Guardian locking the content.

    What my problem is, is that these desperate fucks are telling me they filled out my offers and love the pics, but when I check my earnings it shows nothing.

    Its been 2 days now. Is it because of the weekend?

    is the content adult? I think adscendmedia doesn't allow adult. :/
    but if not, then you might try to contact your AM.

    My BH site is adult but i've faked the referrer to be promoting what the offer are.

    I even have junk traffic coming to all my WH sites. I should have been suss to this when I got my mate to fill in the offer from his computer and I tried also from my iphone.

    I hope I haven't wasted a week setting all this up.

    We do post here btw.
    It sounds to me like you aren't driving traffic to one of our dating offers via your ewhoring, and are blocking content of a page. You're borderline on using techiques we don't allow, but I can take a look for you if you're running incentive offers on your WP Guardian page.

    We do not shave AT ALL. If something isn't converting then the advertiser is validating info and scrubbing invalid leads in real-time, or, there's a tech issue on the advertiser's end. We don't want non-converting offers either, so if there's an issue we'll have it looked into or the offers will get the boot.

    I can't locate an account for you though so you'll have to email us, PM me, or post your publisher ID here.

    Maybe the advertiser isn't crediting instantly, this happened to me some time, all your leads just get imported on one day of the week. If your offer is showing clicks you should be fine.

    I put up a video on Youtube that has over 20,000 views and linked the video to a page with pictures of the whole event I'm promoting (non adult), it's had over 100 clicks and still no conversions - really weird I wouldn't get one conversion :(

    WOW I just started promoting offers from Adscend Media so its very discouraging to now read that many at bhw believe them to be a "scam"... gundamwing can you expound on your findings and conclusions? is this from personal experience or just conjecture?

    I have to say I have yet to have a bad experience with this network. I don't get shaved nearly as hard as I get on other networks (with email submits), you can find plenty of members here who have been paid out by them just fine. Sometimes the stats are delayed. It's so easy to scream 'scam' immediately.

    Some food for thought: http://bestincentiveaffiliates.com/affiliatechecks/adscendcheck.jpg

    Saying that a network shaves is so over-used. How many times do DirectTrack networks get accused of this when it's not even posible for them to do it (since they have no access to the DT codebase)? If you sign up for an offer yourself or have a buddy do it, and it doesn't credit, it's not an indication of shaving. It's just the nature of the beast and can ahppen with any network or any offer. In Incentive marketing there's even something called "missing credit requests", so that their members can submit proof of completion for when an offer doesn't credit as it should.

    Now on the other hand if you're sending a fair amount of traffic and it's not converting at all, then it should be looked into. I'd be glad to check and drill down to your list of clicks. Often times if you're dealing with these small numbers - 100 clicks - you might have half of those being search engine crawlers. Then you're drawing conclusions from 50 clciks which is a very small data set (even 100 clicks is small).

    As was already pointed out in another thread, gundamwing got busted for outright fraud, completing her own offers with proxies. Feel free to Google us also. I only know of one other claim of scam that you'll find, from some Veitnamese scammer who did the same thing. There are plenty of satisfied publishers right here on BHW.

    But to get this back on topic and to an actual issue - PM me, email us, or catch us on AIM and we will go over your traffic for you.

    No i totally dont agree with your bullshit. Long time ago i was testing your network , it wasn't even any adult traffic or any email marketing or blackhat in any way. First i thought you guys were legit and were better since you guys have the same surveys as ************** but pay more than **************. For example
    "which simpson character are you"
    **************:.53
    adscendmedia: 1.20

    I mean it was more than double what you guys paid compared to **************, so i thought this might increase my earnings more than twice as much.

    Now everyday i was getting around 5-7% conversion rate on my sites, i wont disclose the type of sites i was running with ************** but i can assure you it wasnt any illegal or blackhat sites.Not even tv show sites.

    Anyways so one day i decided to change from ************** to adscendmedia.com to test them out. Well i let them run for 2 hours , only to find out i had over 100 clicks and NO CONVERSIONS. I was not going to let adscendmedia.com run on my sites every since then, if you guys seriously don't shave then how come with the same surveys run on your network and ************** network. Only ************** was able to convert even though they are the same surveys and same type of traffic coming through my sites. However, am willing to give another try to your network to see if you guys are legit i will post proof here later on.

    We have many of the same surveys as CPA-Lead, but that doesn't mean that the same surveys were presented to your visitors.

    How long ago did you test our gateway? When we first launched it, the way that it selected offers was not very optimal and we have improved that since. They're still sorted by EPC, but we exert a bit more manual control over the list, by throwing out offers that aren't performing well. They get dropped automatically when their EPC is low, but it takes more time for that to happen than if we drop them manually. Also, since CPA-Lead has been around much longer and has more traffic than we do (let's be honest), their system can collect enough data to determine EPCs faster than we can, and drop offers quicker. That doens't mean that their system is better over the long haul, considering their lower payouts, but that if we add a lot of new offers in a day, it takes more time for those EPCs to be calculated, and meanwhile they get thrown into the mix for that to be decided.

    So there are many factors at work and any time you run traffic for a short amount of time, be it 100 clicks or 2 hours, or something similar, you can't use that to make an accurate judgment of our network. And it's certainly unfair to use that short amount of time to make broad accusations that we're shaving/cheating you.
