    Everyone, including some BHW members have been a buzz about 1on40.com.

    I told everyone not to waste their time as it was just a massive (but really brilliant) lead generation scam.

    They now claim millions of signed up clients, and I don't imagine any of them will be getting that top ten rank on google.

    I signed up as an affiliate, waited, and sure enough, this email came today:



    If you want the unlimited_traffic sent to your website (not 1_on_40)
    to sign>up & generate your businesses_immediate_revenue you need
    to login to your back office right away & click the news link to reserve
    your advert in both the back offices.


    Our back office site stats
    We have over 24,000,000 internal page impressions (pages viewed)
    inside both back office/member areas per week. We currently have
    approximately 1.4 Million active unique clients and adding up to 18,000
    clients every single day. At least 70% of our clients are aff.iliate_type
    people promoting their own_aff.iliate-web site.


    We have approximately just under 200,000 unique aff.iliates additional
    to the 70% aff.iliate type clients (doesn?t include duplicates between
    client and aff.iliate). That?s a serious number of people and page views
    to promote your aff.iliate programme to the masses of similar/like minded
    audience that logs in to their back office a minimum of once a week...


    Would you like unlimited sign_up_traffic of like minded/aff.iliate type
    people directed to your aff.iliate web site from both back offices?


    Limited adspace available so to get your advert before some one else
    log in and reserve it now today.

    of Millions of like minded people for

    Frigging genius, I bet they'll make a killing selling ad space, sending affiliate emails, and selling their lists to other advertisers and all thanks to thousands of affiliates building their list absolutely free.

    What exactly was the scam? Getting a ton of people to become affiliates and promote this site and then just profiting from the affiliates' work without giving anything in return?

    They are hosting on PowWeb, which uses FreeBSD and they are using nginx http server.

    My question is, did any of the affiliates who drove all these thousands of sign ups a day ever make any money :)

    I doubt it

    ......but I'm sure 1on40 is really greatful for the thousands of dollars a day they are making pimping that list.
