You are not paying...

So as the admins here recently said, there are some changes in the earning and membership policy. That they analyzed the last month data and found many countries to be very poor on revenue-generating aspect.

If the policies are already applied, no more members from India and other countries can join here. There is some white-list, but unfortunately I don't remember which countries feature in there. emoticon :straight-face:

So, what were the observations? That India is second in generating the traffic, after US. That doesn't come as a surprise to me. I have always noticed that people from here and Philippines are most actively hunting for such sites emoticon :smile: and maybe US trumps only - well - because sites are hosted there!

India is second!! That should be some great news, then why the long face? Hmm... thanks India for coming here so often, but you are quite not profitable. We won't pay much for your visits... that makes you contributing <1% in revenues but not our problem, you look at it.

Yes, they pay by views/impressions, or whatever they call it, but what they care for is how those views are translated in monetary gains! Obviously our viewing their ads dancing in one side doesn't make a difference. It's only when we are clicking on those ads, some business opportunity arises.

I have no idea how people in other countries respond to these ads, but Indians are mainly cautious of ALL the ads with so many malwares flying around... we rarely click on anything. Or when we do, it's mostly the wrong thing! emoticon :smile:

Since this discussion has come to fore, I spend most of the time watching the ads I get here. There are some uninteresting ones, looking lame. Then there are some which make you wary. There are bra ads too, ah no thanks I don't wear those o.O

But then there are ads from two reputed four wheeler companies, from Cartoon Network and as I saw today, from online shopping portals too. These should be good. Why don't we try clicking on those and find out more? Who knows we might end up buying something, that too with a good bargain!

When the ads are clicked, those clicks are tracked. And while no one can be sure, an upsurge in sales will be linked to these views too. And they will notice that yes, on this site we get a lot of clicks so there are more chances of people coming to our store if we place our ads here. The value of this place increases, and they start paying more for the impressions.

That will increase the revenue from here. In the sense of revenue per impression (or something). It's all my idea, and I will surely try this out emoticon :smile: Admins can test the impact.

We ask that you do NOT click on ads to try to increase revenue. This can actually get us banned from such ad networks, which could then lead to the fall of the site. ONLY click on an ad if you are legitimately interested in purchasing something. PP's account would be flagged for fraudulent clicks. In fact, if we find certain countries deliberately doing fraudulent clicks, we might have to start banning the current members for doing such things.

Trust me, Indians are not the only ones concerned about malware from ads. I recently spent the better part of week trying to clean may laptop and desk top of a bucket load I inadvertently downloaded when I accidently clicked on something. I don't have an answer for you and I'm sorry. I wish I did.

Sorry for being late :) I was expecting this response, as yes fraudulent clicks are not something advisable. I am just suggesting to be more curious, I can trust that car company ad to be malware free, right?
Or maybe not... these adware people are smart!
You are very quick in reading and responding. I wonder how you do it. lol
Trust me, it doesn't feel good when our contribution is less.

I'm not concerned about malware, but the fact that clicking ads when you have no intention of purchasing or getting more information, is indeed a fraudulent click. Curious once every few weeks, sure that is fine, curious multiple times a day and you can be sure that not only would you get PP in trouble, it could cause your account to be banned.
