Really disappointed with TrafficPros

Ok, I joined the traffic exchange program TrafficPros 4 days ago on the understanding that I could earn $.01 for each site I visited. I've been doing this faithfully each day and already racked up $6.83 I was thinking this was great - view a web page for 30-10 seconds (didn't figure that out but some were for longer time than others). My earnings were adding up much faster than posting discussions or responses here on myLot. Well, I logged in a bit ago thinking I would get my earnings up to $7.00 before going to bed. Do the math, that would mean surfing 17 sites right? NOT - I surfed 22 and when I checked my earnings I was $6.8268 I started looking around and not only has the 'pay' decreased drastically but it switched from 1:1 surf ratio to 2:1 Guess what my pay rate is now? "Cash Per Click : .00025" - that means surfing almost 80,000 to reach my payout of $25.00 I know there are several other myLot members who are members of TrafficPros. Have you noticed this big cut in earnings?

Faith, I signed up on your links for traffic. I have been looking for something that would direct traffic to my sites. I don't have a lot. I am never sure which are good sites and which aren't. So when I saw the three that you had links for and you said you had been members for a long time I joined under you. Thanks for the links.

I noticed it too, and maybe what was happening is too many people were joining here, and earning quickly so they had to Cut back. Well, I guess it was only good while it lasted. I will probably quit working it there as well as a lot of the to Promise sites, because at the New rate I can surely earn a lot more quicker here in myLot than there.

That's my thought also but did receive email from the owner yesterday and he's raising the rate a little - works out surf 4 sites and earn $.01 (1 cent) which is much better but I am guessing even if you do reach payout the money won't be there. Another email seemed almost like a threat - upgrade or there may not be money for payouts... No way am I going to pay money out only to have that money pay someone else. I'm just doing a few sites a day and going to see what happens.

as byfaith only suggested - It is hard to imagine paying one of these sites money for an upgraded membership, when you have no garauntee they will even be there tomorrow. It is all fairly lopsided in the risk department. djbtol

I don't know about this particular program, but I have seen it in other ones. It really makes me mad when they set you up by thinking that you are going to earn something, and then take it all away from you by making it impossible to reach your payout.

I agree, and I also have seen it happen in other programs. I was even leary of myLot when I joined but was blessed that many members shared their payouts with others so I at least knew they had paid in the past. Personally I think myLot is one of the best as far as standing up to what they say and delivering.

Thank you for replying. I went there. I can submitt upto five urls, it is saying that if i want more hits, i should sumbit the same url five times - i dont know if i read that right, so is that what they mean to say there ? Also credit means what? If i get one credit does it mean that my url submitted gets one hit or it means something else. You have 1000 crdits means? Have you clciked 1000 times? And what ration we get? you get ony 50 clciks on your site ? so is that 1 :20 ? JHave they mentioned it clearly anywwhere ? I think rates are 1 cent for some upgration members . My clcok never starts at 30, mostly at 12, n some times at 6 or 7.

Well, I certainly wouldn't recommend anyone pay any money to them - some may get lucky but since I signed up I've just seen too many negatives with the site and not recommending it or promoting it at all.

As far as I can tell they are fairly new and no one has been paid - no one has reached payout yet that I know of. I am not referring anyone to the site though until I see what happens - I don't like referring to sites that appear to be shaky to me.

I forgot to add that I too got sucked in by surfjunky.com I was well past payout, didn't hear anything, requested payment, didn't hear anything, then they blocked me - locked me right out of the site completely.

Hi byfaithonly, There are many websites that is promising to pay but it is only empty words. Their members don't get money. That's why I don't join such kind of websites.

Yes this is so true but often you don't know the truth until you actually join. When I signed with mylot I had no idea what the truth was about them but am very happy now that I took that chance.

Sorry to hear that this site is giving you grief. I have never used them. The trouble with so many web-based programs is that there is no person to punch in the nose, or at least squeal on when they do you wrong. It would be nigh impossible to even file a complaint against such companies. About all one can do is discourage others from using them. Eventually they will lose their customer base. Are you using the traffic exchanges to promote your website? Do you feel it is working? I'm going to check out the other links you listed. Have a wonderful day, djbtol

You are right, and that was one of the reasons actually that I posted this discussion - 1 to see if others were having the same problem but 2 to let others be aware there may be problems. In answer to your questions, yes I mainly use the traffic exchanges to promote my site. Occasionally I will promote referral links but have noticed a couple of things to watch for. 1 - if a page loads too slow you'll get hits but no one actually sees your information. 2 - large volumes, meaning don't expect to get 100 referrals off from 100 sites you surf. The two I mentioned above I've surfed 1000s and 1000s of sites and gotten a few referrals here and there. Great thing is they are free and I've never had any problems with the sites themselves.

Never heard of Traffic Pro, I am currently on Gomez Peer and it does the same thing, but the payout is nothing like you mentioned, I have been on for 5 days I am up to $0.35, they say if you stay online alot you can earn up to $45 a month, I am waiting to see if that happens. Take care!

I can understand how you feel about this,why dont you try and use the services with yuwie,though it's a socializing site but a lot of people come there to make money as well.They always pay you either with cheque or straight into your paypal account.
