Probux.com - Grid Advertising..
27th Sep, 2013 at 1:22pm
 
Hello, I'd like to get some information regarding ProBux.com..

I need another traffic source for my ads page.. as I feel the-bux.net is not worth the cost
of its advertising and I'd like to replace it. If anyone is in it please provide me with these details :

How much does it cost to advertise on their grid per month?
Any idea of how many members they have?
And if anyone has tried them for advertising.. do they deliver any leads?

I'm in it. Haven't invested anything yet, since there's quite some bad rumours surrouding it, namely being from the same guys of onbux and using a very simillar script.
However, it has been online for an year now, so that counts for something.

Their grid costs $12 per month. I don't know any factual membercounts, but it's surely above 100000, considering the amount of referrals some people have.
I really can't help you with the quality of their traffic, as I've never advertised.

Fair enough.. I've read about those bad rumors and I think we've also discussed them as well..
However from an advertiser's point of view it seems interesting enough to try.

So, please PM me your ref link. Thanks! Smiley

I joined under you, and immediately purchased one month of advertising,
but they turned down my ad and refunded me..  Smiley

I left them a contact support message and hope for a good reason for it.
I checked out their T.o.S. and found no violation.. only one possible explanation..

There's someone advertising sevenclix on the ads page and the site was down
so the image was missing and cause the page to wait for the timeout and not completely load.

If that's the case, that sucks a bit.. I took the ad down now and contacted the client.
Let's see what probux staff's reply will be.

Can one banner ad make the page not load?

I got their reply.. they say that the page is not opening within a frame!?!
That's really weird as it keeps showing normally on all the other sites I've advertised it.
It seems to be an issue with chrome however.. I'm now working on fixing it..
Try to open this page with your browsers : http://frm.ptcbox.me
It contains the ads page within a frame.

I think it's fixed now. Adblock also blocks my frame.
But if I disable it the page loads normally.

Yes, and now you have unbiased 3rd party proof.

if they still reject the ad then I suspect you must be competition to something they are doing somehow(like a similar advertiser page on the site?)

No reply so far.. I'm somehow beginning to believe that there won't be one..
Nevertheless I think I'll give them another shot now.. at the worst case I'll end up refunded again,
so that's no big deal..

As for the similar type of advertising page, I really feel there's nothing wrong in this..
After all I made it clear that I am interested in a long term advertising relationship.. plus if you consider
that all my funding will be pure profit to them (as ad grids cost practically close to nothing to them) and
will help them maintain their full site stability.. it's them that should be more interested in dealing with me
and as many others like me as possible.. it's the purpose of their site and the way to increase their profits. Smiley

Even if I had a PTC program that does the exact same thing to theirs, they should be glad to have me
as a partner.. PTCs should rely heavily on other PTCs to survive. Beside the fact that they can both
advertise at each other's site for better prices, they can also share their growth by attracting each
other's members.. Also when one PTC succeeds, it is a victory for the whole industry as more people
get attracted to it.

Wow. That is bizarre. Who ever thought of a PTC company that would not accept ads? And if not, then to not give you a reason. Maybe the whole site is a sham. Maybe the reason they don't accept ads is because they don't make a profit so the owner only puts up their own ads in order to make their margins. I'm trying to think like Sherlock here and boil this down to the only possible logical explanation and I admit, this one has me stumped

Ok, I finally got my reply!  Cool New

They said it's ok as my link now works fine within a frame, so I can now place my ad.
So we'll soon get to know how active this site's members are when it comes to grid clicking.

Just for the record.. what was missing from my site was a character encoding tag missing.
Chrome does not automatically pick one so it couldn't load the content within the frame.
So setting that to utf-8 manually, fixed the issue and the site loaded properly within the frame.

This is good to hear that they weren't so crazy after all. Having them reject your ad really had my head spinning. Who would do that? Good thing it was just due to a glitch. Let's hope you establish a long and successful advertising relationship with them  Smiley
