I'm pretty sure Infolinks sucks. Anyone else mess with them?

    Ran a campaign at infolinks last night. Got 25 clicks and two sign ups at 5 cents per click. I though, alright, not bad at all. Left the campaign running after I went to sleep this morning and woke up to another 375 clicks and only 2 sign ups. I guess the click fraud guys must be waking up when I go to sleep or something. Just my opinion for now.. Maybe I was doing something wrong as I am no PPC master. I may try again using exact match, though I think traffic may be too little with exact match..

    Anyone else have experience here with infolinks.

    Stay away from them.

    US traffic: 3 clicks = $0.02

    Still sending traffic of course, i'll give it a week.

    Niche is computers and accessories, around 2k uv/day 100% US.
    Other countries see different ads.

    Thanks for taking the time to give advice to a 12 years old poor bastard, it's really appreciated.

    I'd rather stay away from them. InfoLinks was good back 2 years ago but now InfoLinks isn't the same, very low CTR and extremely poor payout on clicks, even from USA.

    I just got approved with them and ran the ads for a few days, then dropped them. I don't think my visitors liked seeing all those ad links because bounce rates were starting to come up. That's just my opinion of course...

    Yeah same here.
    The amount of money I was getting, was not worth the aggravation to my readers. When I removed them, my blog looked really clean, and bounce rates increased. Not a lot but just noticeably.

    I was trying to get money from every angle, still am...but that wasn't worth it.

    i also tried infolinks. they pay 1 cent for per click. so i removed the script. they contacted me via email and said that i am valueable publisher why bla bla bla. but 1 cent for click is just a joke.

    Yeah, they really are not worth the hassle. Move onto bigger things.
