Paid to Click sites are a waste of time money and effort: NeoBux Update

It’s been a while since I last wrote about NeoBux and PTC (paid to click) sites; I have been with NeoBux since last October so here is my verdict. Trying out NeoBux has been a useful exercise in finding out if it really can offer a sustainable income. I looked at the positives and negatives of PTC and whether it was a viable model. Unfortunately the negatives far outweighed the positives if indeed there were any positives.

Verdict

I am always on the lookout for more ways to earn extra cash online but for me NeoBux and the

Another PTC site bites the dust

Yes, it happened again yet another PTC (paid to click) site has collapsed. For those in the know it probably won’t come as any great surprise as this is endemic for this type of money earning scheme. So is this just convenience on the part of the PTC site or another prime target for the so called “PayPal mafia”? Either way someone somewhere is cashing in big time.

The victim or instigator in this latest PTC collapse is none other than Upbux and as you can see from this statement they are powerless to act, OR are they

NeoBux Forum Chat: Strategies to Ponder

Thought I would share my thoughts on one particular thread on the NeoBux forum about strategies. The member who started this conversation has been quite dogged in his/her approach. They extol the virtues of analysing individual referrals by way of how many days since last click and AVGs achieved to determine whether to recycle, or whether to leave the referral to return and start clicking again.

While I admire this user’s astuteness to detail I don’t agree with it entirely. Yes it is right that you look at the last time the referral clicked an ad

Whoops! Slow down: NeoBux latest

I Had to cut down on my recycling because it was eating into my profits, I had been recycling at 5% but with a low AVG of between 0.8 / 1.00 per day, I was foolish to keep this recycle rate going, so I have now cut back to 2%. What I did learn from the chap above was to check my AVG on server reset time and then set my recycle rate accordingly. This has now stabilised my costs, my next actions will be extending all my referrals to 90 days with auto renew turned off, this
