    Hi guys,

    I signed up for SiteScout and deposited the $500, however, afterwards I read many bad stories on BHW about SS.

    I do wonder if the bad stories are brought on by unexperienced beginners or if SS has really become that bad after being bought in 2013.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Cheers.

    SiteScout is a demand-side platform (DSP). They just plug into a bunch of supply-side platforms (SSP's) for their inventory.

    Since they don't have their own publishers, the acquisition really shouldn't have changed the traffic quality.

    In my experience, i saw lot of bot traffic which does nothing but eats your money. Unless if you know what you are doing,i wouldn't go there.

    Sitescout is not a good option, tons of bad quality sites. Try other networks.
