PTCBox.Me Ads Traffic Updates
11th Sep, 2013 at 1:35am
 
Hello, I'd like to dedicate this thread to the PTCBox.Me Ads project.

Within the first month the PTCBox.Me Ads page received more than 90.000 unique hits and served more than 10 advertisers.
In this thread I'm gonna publish major updates related to the traffic.
We are constantly trying to add new sources to our incoming traffic. Here's what we have so far...

PTCBox.Me Ads Page is currently receiving traffic from the Grids of :

1. ClixSense (Over 3,276,000 Members)
2. Twickerz (Over 250,000 Members)
3. The-Bux (Over 142,000 Members)
4. NerdBux (Over 93,000 Members)
5. PTCSolution (Over 26,500 Members)
6. BuxBoost (Over 9,100 Members)

(Audience Summary : Over 3,796,600 Members)

So far the traffic is steady and the site receives more than 3000 hits and ~2700 unique visitors daily.
We will update these stats as we go with the latest data..  Cool New

We've just added PTCSolution to our sources list so we expect another nice boost in the traffic from now on.

I think you can add over there that Twickerz has + 250 000 members. Right now their stats aren't showing, but some months ago they did, and the total member count was getting pretty close to that.

Thanks for the info.. I was wondering why they don't publish that number when it's so important for advertisers.

It looks like PTCSolution was a brilliant choice as well cause yesterday for the first time we broke the 4000 hits
barrier for the first time.. with uniques reaching 3400.. They seem to be amazing results.. I just hope the earnings
will cover the expenses. Another site with an interesting membership growth is GoldenClix.. It says that it currently
has 107136 members.. but unfortunately the grid costs $15 / month which is kinda high to cover for now..

I'll see how things go with the current traffic and probably add it to the list later.

Update on our Alexa Ranking..

I've been noticing lately that despite the heavy increase in traffic my site receives the ranking was still going down.
That has been troubling me and the one thing I found out was that alexa doesn't count the traffic that my subdomains
receives.
Therefore they don't play a part at all in the main domain's alexa ranking!  Smiley
Yep, that's true.. So I went ahead and made a change there.

The http://ad.ptcbox.me link so far has been pointing to the http://www.ptcbox.me/ad/ folder and opens the index.php file in it.
The PTCBox.Me Ads code was located there. So I made a small change.. Copied it to another file called main.php
and placed a php header redirect link in the index.php. This might sound very technical but in simple words all it does is,
make all the http://ad.ptcbox.me requests in browsers to load the content of the http://www.ptcbox.me/ad/main.php file.

This way all the traffic the Ads page receives will most likely affect the main domain's alexa ranking now.
I'm very curious to see how the alexa rank will be boosted starting from today.. Let's find out! Smiley

Edited:
Today's rank is 322,052

Hope it helps. However some would also say not to take Alexa Rankings too seriously.

Still good luck!

Thanks! Why not though?

It's not like it's very important or something, but I've seen a lot of advertisers that religiously rely on it.. (note: I don't..)
If not just attractive, it's good evidence that an owner is not lying about his traffic.

I mean it's pretty easy for me to display dynamic fake stats on my site but alexa isn't lying..

Of course there are many factors that play a part on how good a site's alexa ranking is, and results may vary..
but the general idea is simple enough when it comes to advertisement sales..

If nothing else it's a proven advertising technique that in a weird way affects a part of the human brain..
example : Saying "Brad Pitt drinks Coke, you should too!" usually works better than just saying "Drink Coke!".

Small Update : Ordered another month on the NerdBux Grid (NerdGrid) and updated the screenshot in the ad submission page.
New expiration date : 15th of October 2013.

I wonder why they don't offer more than one month purchase.. I think I'll leave their support a message.

Total visitors received from NerdGrid within a month : 11163

Well, it looks like it didn't work. The ranking dropped even lower to 410,176.

So I'll be re-configuring the directories of all pages within the next hours.

Next time I'll order traffic to the ads page it will be directly to it and not through the sub-domain.

Hopefully this will work.. (Sorry if I'm becoming a bit too obsessed with this.. Sad)

Another month of Grid Advertising has been ordered on Twickerz. Ad submission page has been updated. Thankfully I got two top banner sales and broke through the expense.

Only The-Bux is now left to renew.

2013-08-27 to 2013-09-26 - Total hits : 23,999 ($0.00083 per hit) - Uniques : 23,414 ($0.00085 per unique) - Cost $20

Twickerz

2013-08-26 to 2013-09-25 - Total Hits : 45,150 ($0.00033 per hit) - Cost $15

$0.00139
per hit) - Cost $9.99

I'll update these stats as we go.

Edited:
Update 1 (2013-09-27) : As we can see The Bux seems to be the worse advertising solution so far as it's the most expensive
and has pretty low activity when it comes to Grid clickers.. So I'm on the look for a new option.

Update 2 (2013-10-02) : And.. we've got a new winner of the worst position.. Smiley
