    This thread is about the advertiser side of Zango, not the publisher side that already has a thread in the Shit List subforum. As some of you may know, Zango makes their money by popping up websites on the computers that are infected with Zango's software. The software looks at the websites that you are visiting and shows sites that are related to these. They allow advertisers to bid on specific keywords and urls. For example, if your bid is the highest for "www.blackhatworld.com", your site will be shown to infected visitors of this site.

    There was a ebook posted on here a while ago that talked about this and suggested you bid on specific names of expensive plasma televisions and send that traffic to Amazon with your affiliate link. That technique is not allowed anymore by Zango Ad Services, so Amazon links will not be approved.

    So what do you think is a good way of monetizing this traffic? It doesn't take a genius to realize that this has a lot of potential for blackhatters.
    A few things that come to mind are affiliate programs (obviously), arbritage with Adsense, parked domains, ...
    I haven't tried any of these yet as I just got accepted.

    There isn't much competition on Zango Ad Services because a lot of people consider it immoral and you can only use your account if you start with a $100 deposit. They also phone you to validate your identity.

    I thought the start out is $200 for Search Solution.
    I believe most affiliate company doesn't allow traffic from Zoogo. Too must risky to get kick out of a good affiliate.

    mediatraffic.c0m, vomba.c0m and you can do RON on findology.c0m

    Like it has been mentioned, a lot of affiliate companies and networks specifically ask you don't use this traffic. So obviously you need to use your tricks to blank referer etc.

    I have made a decent amount of money with these PPV companies, problem is, sometimes it seems the traffic kicks ass, then other times it just doesn't convert at all, and you are dealing with adware companies, so I wouldn't be surprised if they inflate your numbers when they see conversions with their tracking system.

    And don't say "infected" with adware, that's implying it's a virus, which it isnt.

    I think that mediatraffic(.)com offers a similar service to zango.
    Also a $100 min to get started.

    If anyone wants to promote software through those, I run an affiliate system for my two software products. I don't care where the traffic comes from as long as it's not a forced download. :D I'll pay 60%, 2 week payout.
