    The backstory:

    For the past 3 years I've been clicking on PTC sites (say nothing about this). Of course, I reduced it significantly as time went by, but I would still click often, and it was a tremendous waste of time, I must say. Finally I decided to stop clicking, and withdraw money I had in some of the PTC sites, only to discover some of them now require you to deposit money before you can withdraw (WTF?).

    After finding that out, I realized that the few bucks I have in there are basically stuck. The only thing I could do with the balance and credits I have on a few of them PTC sites is spend it in advertising on them. That's when I made this thread to figure out what can I advertise: http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/what-to-do-with-credits-on-ptc-sites.881708/page-2#post-9319146

    The replies were helpful and not, critical and not. But you can see how it went and what brought me here to this journey.


    The continuation:

    So I decided to go with an idea I've been pondering on for a long time - to advertise Make Money Online products on PTC sites. Products people can download for Free! I figure the clickers on those sites, just like me when I started out, want to make money, but they don't really know what to do or have any money to invest - that's why they're clicking for cents and fractions of cents.


    So here's what I did:

    1) Created this (free) blogspot blog: http://mmofreecourses.blogspot.com/

    2) Fixed it up, added template, edited template, fixed blogspot default country redirection, all the details

    3) Took 50 eBooks from my hard drive, zipped them up, and uploaded on Dropbox

    4) Registered on Sharecash, shortened my Dropbox link with it. (I also made this thread asking how I can lock my link because I know nothing of PPD/CPA/PPI. But no one replied -> http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/how-to-lock-download-link-for-profit.881832/#post-9319099)

    5) Went to Ad-fly, shortened the Sharecash link with it

    6) Went to Bitly, shortened the Ad-fly link with it

    7) Placed Download Link on blog...


    Next steps:

    Go to the PTC sites I have balance and credit on, and get some sort of a campaign going to send traffic to landing page.



    There you go guys. We'll ride this out for the money I have in my balances and credits, and see where it gets us. I will update again when I take care of the PTC sites advertising, to inform what kind of ads I decided to use and all the details.

    Seems like a good idea. I would have picked something like "Download this ebook and learn how to maximize your PTC profits for free" and just make 4 pages full of "get more referals" and "stay more time online to click more" stuff.

    Okay. I'll take the PTC sites one by one, in order to be able to measure what site produces what results.

    The first one I'll use, I'll call TW.

    I don't want to give them any promotion here, so I'll have little nicknames for each PTC site I use.

    I was just on TW, and thankfully I could convert my balance to purchase balance. So now I have just enough to buy 1 day of "Fixed PTC Advertisements (5 seconds)," and also 1000 credits for "Paid To Click Ads." I'm not 100% sure what the latter is, but I'll look into that tomorrow...

    So I just bought the 1 day Fixed PTC advertisements. The good thing about them (I know because I've clicked thousands) is that the user has to have his page centered when viewing them. So they can't open the tab and then jump to a different tab and do something else and not view the advertisement. Granted, they could click and look away, but, we'll work with what we have here.

    I'll update if I get any conversions, or I'll update in 24 hours when this runs out and say details of how many clicks I got etc.


    In the meantime, I'll go take a shower and... you know... masturbate or whatever :D hahahaha

    Guys GUYS! Keep it serious please. :)

    Okay, the 24 hours of advertising have passed.

    The page has received about 3300 clicks from the advertising.

    My Download/Bitly link has received, get ready, 21 clicks (that's including any BHW clicks, and 2 of my own clicks)

    And my Sharecash page has received 12 visitors, and 2 clicks. No downloads.

    So that was a waste.


    Next, I just bought for the remaining of my money on TW the other package I can afford, which is 1000 ad credits. I added my site for 5 seconds ads. So a 5 second exposure per click. If I'm not mistaken, I should get 1000 clicks from this. But anyway, my ad is "PENDING REVIEW." So when they approve it, as they should, we'll start getting dem clicks, and I'll update when it's done to say the stats and everything.

    Thanks for reading :)

    So my ad got approved.

    I tried allocating the full 1000 point I have, and the system told me that I don't have enough credits. What the fuck...

    Then I tried 500, and it worked. I already got 1 click from it, and I lost 1 credit. So that means I'll get 500 clicks from this, and then I'll allocate the other 500 points I have, and get 500 more clicks.

    I'll update when I get the full 1000 with how many clicks I got and everything.

    Why not?

    It got me off my ass to make a landing page (that I will continue to promote a bit in the future, because I actually like how it looks)
    It got me to test a theory I had for a while that promoting a "download free make money online ebooks" type of landing page on PTC sites may be profitable
    It got me to test if promoting anything on PTC sites is worth it
    It didn't cost a cent

    So why the hell not?

    The advertising on TW is done. The 500 credits were actually 1000, because it's 2 credits per click, so it's done.

    I've gotten 11 clicks on my Bitly link, got 10 clicks on the Adfly skip, got 10 visitors to the Sharecash page, and 3 clicks on one of the Sharecash offers. No conversions/downloads. Zero!

    So TW is done. It was useless. Now I'll see what I can do on the next one. We'll call it GC. I'll be back to report when I start some advertising with it.

    I bought 2000 Paid To Click credits on GC.

    I added my page to 5 second ads, and allocated the credits. I will get 1000 clicks from this.

    The bitly link starts with 32 clicks on it total. I'll be back to report how it went after the advertising is done.

    Okay. The rest of the clicks have been delivered. That's 1,000 clicks from GC.

    We got 9 clicks on Bitly. And 6 clicks on the Adfly skip. And 7 visitors to the Sharecash page, and 3 clicks. No conversions/downloads. Zero.

    Did Adfly shave a hit there? Who knows. Maybe that person had adblock installed or something.

    Okay, so, that was a waste again. Here is what Blogger analytics has to say about my traffic thus far:

    Indonesia 964
    India 919
    Russia 569
    Brazil 450
    Spain 236
    Bulgaria 203
    Venezuela 200
    Czech Republic 199
    Italy 189
    Thailand 188

    So that's it for now. I have 2 more PTC sites to do. But first I'll do a traffic exchange site that I have some credits on.

    Let's call this one EH4U. This is not a PTC site by the way, this is a traffic exchange site.

    I've added my site and allocated 500 credits to it for 15-20 seconds per click. That will get the page 500 clicks. I've started it just now, and I'll be back to inform how it goes.

    Thanks for reading :)

    So the 500 clicks from EH4U have been delivered.

    I haven't got a single click on my Bitly link from that. I won't even check Adfly and Sharecash.

    So there goes that...

    Next, I have 2 more PTC sites, although, from what I checked I don't even have enough credits on them to get any traffic.

    So anyway, I'll now share my blog on some Facebook pages and Twitter and Google+ accounts I have, and I doubt I'll get a lot of traffic, but whatever comes comes, and I'll inform how that goes.

    And then after that, in a few days, I'll run a Twitter bot I have and spam people on Twitter a bit, get some Twitter traffic to the page, and see if that brings in any clicks/downloads.

    Thank you for reading :)

    So I shared the page on 3 Facebook Pages (about 8.000 likes between the 3 of them). And on 1 Facebook profile (500 friends).

    Also I shared it on 2 Twitter accounts (about 33,100 followers between the two of them)

    Also I shared it on 1 Google+ profile (2,412 followers). And on 2 Google+ Pages (about 2,641 followers between the 2 of them)

    I also tried sharing the page on StumbleUpon, but it gave me an error saying that this page can't be shared on StumbleUpon. Did they ban blogger blogs or something? It must be a default rejection of a blogger blog, seeing as this blog I made just yesterday and never shared on StumbleUpon before, so there's no way they banned this specific blog for whatever reason.

    I wrote a short description for each share, and included hashtags.

    If you have any advice where else I can share it, let me know.

    Thanks for reading :)

    So the page has gotten 10,425 clicks so far in total.

    Out of that I got 45 clicks on my Bitly link (2 or 3 of those are mine). I got 20 clicks on the Adfly link. I got 22 visitors on the Sharecash page (2 or 3 of those are me), and 6 clicks on one of the offers, but no conversions/downloads.

    I've now created a campaign on Empire.kred and offered some eaves (points) for people to visit my page. I'll be getting a few clicks from that per day surely, so we'll see how that goes.

    Thanks for reading :)

    try using ogads and redirect to your dropbox when it unlocks, its much easier for people to complete offers there

    Thanks. But I don't really want to spend money advertising this.

    I already redirect to my Dropbox when people complete/unlock an offer from Sharecash. Did you mean something else?
