    Maxvisits (Typlo on BHW) offers visitors for $1.20/1000 views. Many image hosts that pay out will offer to pay $2+ per 1000 views. This seems like a pretty easy method, and I'm almost certain I'm not the first person to see it. Does anyone know if this method works, or is done to to death/doesn't work and that's why it's never talked about? Looking for some insight as to why I never hear about this method. I do plan on trying it out for myself tomorrow (no one who won't venture $1.20 is going to make it in IM) but I'd like to know if anyone has info about this method first.

    By the way, here are the details: I have several images uploaded on an image hosting site that pays out $2.70 per 1000 visitors from US/UK/CA. I'm going to order 4000 visitors from Maxvisits to a website to which I uploaded a rotator script so that visitors will be redirected to a random image (I have 7 total images).

    Most times these companies will not pay if they see that you bought the traffic.

    Would the referrer be blanked with this kind of traffic? Otherwise, it may not work at all.

    However, it will be interesting to see the results that you get with this method when you actually receive the money. :)

    The idea is that I will say I drive traffic to MY domain using social media; and because the paid traffic is redirected to the imagehost from my domain, the referrer should show up as my domain, correct?

    Paid traffic -> .tk domain -> random redirect script -> imagehost

    Using the above model, the referrer should appear as the site I hosted my script on, yes?

    Also, what about ******? Could this work with their links too?

    This can work on all similar websites. This method can be twisted in a lot of ways but I am not sure if it will be this simple to work things out. :)

    However, if it works for you, it has a lot of potential to be upscaled.

    So do you think it would be a good idea to mix some ****** links into the randomizer? That way I still have only one site to manage, and I can get revenue from both. Or should I just pick one or the other?

    problem is real time statistics. Some views won't be counted or atleast won't be exact as the one you ordered.

    I don't know the nature of the traffic you are buying, but they would have to sit through the adfly timer first right? I guess if it was targeted traffic that was really trying to see a certain image it would work, but I don't think visitors coming from random redirects would wait it out. Depends on the traffic source though.

    Seems really to easy to work. I'm 99% sure that these 1.2$/10k users will not wait through the adfly timer as others said and targeted traffic is not so cheap..

    I plan on buying visitors from Typlo (Maxvisits). Do you know if these visitors will work?

    I don't know where he gets his visitors from, but I would say traffic from pop-unders would be your best bet. It seems like the adfly link would time out and redirect to the image file before the user would worry about closing the pop-under. It's not uncommon for people to not even realize there was a pop-under until they try to close their browser so that would seem like plenty of time.

    I have never done this so please take my opinion as just an opinion and not a how-to. Good luck and let us know how everything goes.

    I have tried this method and used typlo for buying the traffic on to my adfly link.. don't waste your time and money.. I have bought 5K visitors from US and not even 1K visitors have managed to wait till the 5 sec timer. I believe i have got some 700-800 visits..

    In that case I'll skip the ****** step, and just go straight to the image host :)

    PM me and I'll let you know.

    some image hosting websites put a gateway or a verification process.. like "click here to see the image"... i know this because imagetwist have this type of security to avoid junk traffic... also, you don't get paid for impression, you get paid for people making click on the image and then getting redirected to the image hosting, im guessing the redirect script may do this, but i don't know if your website will be the referrer.... you have to try... this is not expensive to try... if you want you can private me and we can do some test together, or if you need some money to try this.... we can talk it.

    Update
    I was able to acquire some test traffic through a friend of mine, and so far I can report... SUCCESS! I haven't yet tested with Maxvisits traffic, but I have high hopes. I earned $2.73 from a little over 1000 unique views. I need to get some cash together to test MV traffic (the smallest available order is 10k for $12, and my gf bought a new hat :censored: with the money I planned on testing with- last time I leave my visa card lying about).

    To my knowledge, the image host that I'm using does not gateway their traffic, and the script that I'm using appears to be working.

    Will do! I'll PM you.


    Update (again)

    Doing some reading around the net, I discovered that the host I'm using has been known to occasionally ban people for making too much money too quickly ($10 or more), so I recommend taking it slow (or, if you're impatient, sign up for multiple paid image hosts).

    Also, I removed the ****** links and just used regular urls. This is important, because if you buy traffic ****** will filter it and your money will be wasted.
