Someon said something about NeoBux in a discussion and I have spent the last 10 minutes looking for it and can't find a thing so I will say it here. NeoBux had a problem this weekend and was down, maintenance or something. I haven't been abot to get on since Friday. People have been wondering if it was closing or hacked or whatever and then someone said "its back up!". Today, I have been on 3 PTC sites that had an ad to click to go to NeoBux and on all three sites, I'd click and it would take me to a page saying either the site is not available or that the ad is no longer available. Not sure what that means but have a few thoughts about it, but just mentioning in case anyone else is wondering if the site is gone or not. I thin in this case "only the Shadow knows!" certainly fits! Many PTC sites are having "problems" and making drastic changes in their TOS and ways the site is used, and I just have to wonder - is PTC on its decline? What do you think?

I don't think so. This just seems to be the nature of the industry. Some are scams, some are good for awhile then being to fail for whatever reason, and some have been around for years, like Hits4Pay. I am a member of about 10 sites, including ClixSense, Hits4Pay, DonkeyMails, MatrixMails, and a few others, most of which have been around for more than just a few years. I have been paid by all of them more than a few times and they still seem to be going strong. As with any business, it's primarily how the owner runs the business.

Definately right about the owner making the business. I am also on several of the ones you mention and have had pay out. DonkeyMails gave me far to many virus issues and alerts so I stopped that one. Word Linx is another great one I am loyal to!

There will always be some good ones but there will be even more bad ones and scam sites. With the opportunity to make an easy buck these sites pop up daily. It is pretty easy to just disappear suddenly and start up a new site. I would imagine there are certain people who simply create site after site doing this very scam. maybe they pay a little at first then make the add money and upgrade money and then the site just disappears or is "hacked" or whatever. There are some legitimate sites and one is better off just finding a few of these and sticking with them.
