    I was checking out a few giveaways related blogs. I however did not find anyone of them running CPA offers (like Free trials, free samples, free gift cards, etc) on their websites. How are they making money out of such giveaways then?


    one top site for example is giveawayscoop dot com

    You mean all those giveaway sites out there are in the process of getting traffic to their sites? I don't know. I don't think it could be that because some of the sites are already ranking well, gets enough traffic (the comments speak for this). I just am unclear.

    most of the giveaways are sponsored means they are taking money to post giveaway on their site... if you wanna post a giveaway than you have to pay something and in return you will get traffic, facebook likes and twitter followers...

    Argh!! sponsored giveaways... now that makes a lot sense. Its more like Guest blog posting or selling ads space, etc. then. Cool!! If they mix it up with the banners or links of CPA offers too then it would be gold ... especially for the kind of traffic they are getting.

    Actually, I believe such sites aim for users satisfaction first, because this way they can become more popular, and their sponsorships and featured listings will become more expensive, thus more money for them (which could be more than what they would get through CPA with less users active on their site).
