    Maybe some of you already know that i allways write that Maxbounty shaves and they arent that good etc.
    And i do have reason for that.



    I used them for way too long time and then realized they sucks, when i got into other network and sent traffic there, my conversion rate was 7-15% and i made good money, and then i tested 4 other networks VS Maxbounty and maxbounty had lowest conversion rates.

    This is my own tests and i wont come back to Maxbounty and i try to avoid them, you can stay if you want, its up to you.

    CPA networks used

    Maxbounty
    VS

    *******
    Mundomedia
    Loadecash
    Leadkitchen


    NOTE: Offers was similar, dating and all of these offers converts similar, landing page are almost the same . Traffic is the same, offers is the same, and only networks are different with same offers. All of this was tested on almost the same time

    Here are Maxbounty stats with 1,4 % conversion rate

    [​IMG]


    Crazy 1.4% conversion and from 500 clicks made $30+

    And here goes other networks with the same offers.

    Second offer is 100% the same !!!
    Others are very similar.

    This is Loadedcash, i didnt made money because people didnt bought membership or something, but i did get signups and for othernetworks i run CPL offers.

    [​IMG]



    And here is final !!

    If i would stay with maxbounty i would make $600+ , but im glad that other network was used and made way more.

    [​IMG]




    Conclusion:

    This is my own experience and you can use them if you like, but like i said, when i switched networks i started to make way more.
    hard to explain 1+% conversio rate, while other networks get way more.

    If you have bad experience with them, please share so everyone can pick good and reliable network.

    Im not alone

    Not saying you aren't right but you need to factor in more variables. The biggest is are they getting the offer direct? Many offers go through many sources/middlemen, often each of those will take a cut/shave. Now if they have the offer direct then it's most likely them doing it if you have used the exact same offer and LPs. You can't really say this offer is the same, if you change any variable in your testing the results don't mean much. Just using a different LP from exact same offer can have drastic changes.

    Personally I don't care for MB as they have a big business type of attitude. They were unable to send me my payments for awhile due to some bad info and they termed me, my AM blocked me on aim. Had to go over his head to get my account back in good terms. Then they canceled it because an offer had quality issues but locked me out for fraud. No contact, no heads up. I don't do BH or anything fraudulent but it's their company they can do what they please. Don't really care, they lose money not me. I can make my money anywhere, they no longer make money from my leads so they only hurt themselves with that attitude. Hundreds of other CPA companies out there.

    Now that I said that I did the same testing you did but more structured. Same offer, same traffic, same lp, Maxbounty came out well ahead for that offer. Just find the best source and best offer for you at the moment, it will change soon anyways and you just move on to the next.

    I have used these networks which use other sources etc. And still had high CR and got nice $$$ we can cut that out.

    I used direct linking for these all offers. Also there are more stories about maxbounty, where they just cancel account with thousands in it.

    Also need to say that MB uses custom built tracking system which sucks and probably there are few mistakes or inbuild shaving option.

    Yeah they don't even contact you to resolve an issue, not worth the hassle. Problem is even commercial scripts allow networks to shave you. Cake allows it, they just change the name of the to option to make it sound better. Definitely always good idea to split test to make sure you find the best sources.

    I still remember that thread where guy lost $6000 because MB said traffic was bad etc. but turned out it was good, OP even contacted advertisers and they said they paid MB and leads were good.

    I just updated thread with more threads ;)

    Weird.. i have been working with Max Bounty and i cant say anything bad about them... but the graphs look alarming indeed.
    I think i will try different CPA providers to test the difference but the bad thing is no one else pays even close to what Max Bounty pays for dating sign ups. (I am getting 7-15$ depending on offer) for free signups. My average conversion rate is near 10%-15% (highest is 23%) - i have low traffic, but it is high quality. They have increased my PPL 3 times on 3 offers (due to advertisers being very pleased with my traffic) Even got contacted by one advertiser for good traffic.

    But i will test this out as i might be loosing $$$ what network would you suggest to use for casual dating/adult dating offers. (needs to be weekly payments and high paying offers)

    still isnt "proof" that they shave.

    Just proof that you make more and have better conversion on the other sites.

    I can recall a thread from a while ago. The guy got all of his family members to fill out an offer on MB. Turned out that only a few of all of the offers he personally confirmed were counted by MB.

    I will see if I can find it.

    Not better, but i had way higher CR on others.


    Also when i did asked people to complete offers in chats, almost 10 people completed it and i did get 1 conversion. Im 100% sure these people sign up.

    You can go with them if you love em.
