    I've tried using Adside.com for about a week and I have to say that this was a complete waste of time and most importantly money. I've spent hundreds of dollars of truly unbelievably crappy traffic.

    Just like with any other traffic test I do, I tested different ad copies, different offers, different websites, landing pages, etc. However after all that, I've received 0 conversions! This is one of the worst possible traffic sources you can buy. Stay away!

    Adside was in my plans to test the traffic one time, but $0.20 min per click rate for run of network looks a bit expensive. Maybe it would be good if they allowed to see their inventory to select sites manually. Is it so really bad, even worse than Bidvertiser?

    Pre-warned is Pre-armed so they say, I think I will bookmark this thread and see if the opinions change of the original poster before I place my head on the chopping block.


    Best regards

    No, my opinion hasn't changed nor will. It was a complete waste of my money and time. Of course, I'd suggest anyone to make their own tests and decisions. I've tested a campaign that converts really well with other networks so there was a good chance I was at least going to break even, however I haven't even received one measly conversion.

    It seems like they are just pulling money. Think before you leap i.e. pay to them.

    I also advise people to stay away from AdSide. AdSide owes this internet publisher over $10,000. They will not return phone calls or emails.
    So if you are an advertiser, a media agency or a publisher, beware! AdSide will keep your revenue. It's a scam.

    I don't know how you choose advertising networks, but if design looks very cheap, it raises a flag, as network it first place should know how to present themselves :)

    We have worked with AdSide for about a year and have had no problems with the network. We are also (recently) running on the mobile platform that is converting well for us. Internally we think it is the double click mobile ads that they developed - keeps our CPA in line.
