    I joined and tried to get 2 sites approved. Both got rejected when I asked why they said they have too many publishers, but I see them advertising to get more publishers. Anyone got a site approved by virool?

    I had one of my GPT sites approved a little over a year ago, and it was a profitable integration on the site, but my experience with them was far from exceptional. They have a history of accepting publishers, allowing them to build a decent balance and then deactivating their account without explanation and refusing to pay the remaining balance. They only respond to support tickets and email when it is convenient for them, and they never seemed genuine or honest with any of the interactions I had with them. The business model is good, but they are not. But, that's also just my opinion.

    virool apparently is trying to stay away from thin content sites, like game sites, instead want content niche oriented sites, like recipes and how-to's, etc. not to mention 100k+ UV a month is required last time i spoke with them

    Why in the world would they have a "video offerwall" built to give out virtual currency to users who watch the videos if they don't want to attract that specific kind of site/traffic? I'm not arguing with you about what you're saying, I'm just saying it's completely counter-productive to their mission if that is the case. It's kind of like saying I don't want homeless people coming up on porch every day, but yet I keep putting all my bottles and cans right there on the porch expecting them to just ignore them. It's as simple as not putting my bottles and cans there. Why would they build the tools for incentive based marketing and offer them to publishers if they can't use them? I guess I just don't understand the logic, and as I stated before, I was just very unimpressed with their communication and overall professionalism when I worked with them.

    I know, it's not like they don't partner with game niches, but I was told recently that they've been overflooded with game sites and are looking to branch out to more content related sites. So if you do have a game site, I'm guessing it has to be very high quality and able to generate a lot of unique traffic. It pissed me off too, because I had pretty large game site at the time generating a lot of UV's, but he told me he would consider it if it got more than 200k UV a month. I ended never partnering with them and went to another company.

    Koolkade, do you mind sharing who you ended up partnering with? I looked around and never found anyone that offered the same service so I had my own custom solution coded, which works really well. I was thinking about selling my script for others to use as well, but I'm just not sure yet.

    I never even got to work with them at all, after a month of trying to contact them, they finally told me they didnt need any publishers.

    Let me know if thta changed and if they pay!

    I've had a friend use them, but the results were pretty bad, but there are good reviews of Virool.
