    Tried a few ads on there once, very few views and 0 conversions. Guess it depends what your promoting.

    That is the type of thing I want to know - Mr Filsaime runs it and I am not a fan of his and am wise to the strategies he uses to make his cash

    I mainly use USFreeads for a backlink. You won't get many conversions out of it.

    Tried using it several times, never had 1 conversion yet. Also, I understand they switch to no follow.

    lol, you don't have to pay for USfreeads. Hense the word "free". However, they do have a premium advertising that you pay for. It's for better placement of your ads.

    It's a PR5 site and it does hold some weight. Everytime I place an ad, I get a free backlink.

    USFreeads was mentioned in the original Bum Marketing report as a way to get traffic and sales.. But with so many Bum Marketers around, I think it has lost its potential.... However you can still use the Premium version to get backlinks to all your sites as it allows unlimited ads.. Plus Google loves USfreeads so it will help to get your site indexed quickly..


    You could also try getting your ADS featured to check if it improves the conversion rates..

    Ads get views, often many many, they just get nothing more than a view.

    USFreeads, according to Travis is possibly one of the best ways to get conversions and sales. But that was a few years back .. now USFreeads is not worth any money. It lost its link juice and SERPS. Forget using it. Switch to your own blogs and make some money. if you're later bored with it, just flip it and collect your dough.

    I used to use USFreeads, but several years ago. I never had any success with them. Now, Craigslist, on the otherhand...I've had my share of money making days. Of course, everything was white hat, although, that may change in the near (really near) future.

    I tested it and used some featured ads as well and there were no conversions. Very few views too as views only appear for a few minutes after which probably no one sees them.

    As a backlink, there are better sites. Links also are no follow. A few years ago I did have some success but not now.

    This is the same reason I use USFreeAds. I have tried several different versions of ads, and none seem to convert that well.

    usfreeads is for sure making the most money indirectly for people promoting e-books on how to make money using usfreeads for noobs. these were floating around some years ago like crazy.
