Looking for some PTp traffics?

Looking for some free traffics? Here I would like to share some of the traffics that I got.

Below is the traffic that I got from Bangthelinks manual traffic. These are free traffics. I use the New Manual Traffic at that site. Surf 1 page and receive back 0.8 credits, meaning every 10 pages you surf, you'll get back 8 credits.

Image below is taken from my FusionMails PTP result.

Add Video

Another one, this one is from ShareAdSpace:

I target them into certain countries and that is the reason why the traffics are not that much.

But if you dont target your countries, this is what the result will look like:

That is my 1centmail ptp result.

Traffic at SAS depends on the countries you target, and the frequency of your surfing. And also, there are 2 sections for PTP, you should put your link at two places, Normal surfing and also at PTP surfing section. People surf there to get good ranks there. The higher your ranking, the more people will surf your page. Frankly, I am a lazy surfer, that is the reason why my traffics are not that good.

So, to wrap it up, I really recommend you to use ShareAdSpace to get free traffics for your PTP or whatever you want to promote. Just that dont promote HYIP, autosurfs and all illegal contents.

Welcome to GPT world.

Welcome to the GPT (Get-Paid-To) World.

In the GPT world, you may stumble across thousands upon thousands of programs, with POs offering ways to earn money, whether they are the same, or, completely different. The most common ones are listed below:

PTR (Paid-To-Read):
Paid-To Read programs are ones in which you are sent e-mails, whether on the actual site, called a Site Inbox, or, your own e-mail that you use (for example, Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo!Mail). Depending on the PTR that you have joined, e-mails may come as often as 40+ within one day, and as little as 1 per week. Each E-Mail usually contains around 1-5 links to sites, in which you will earn money for viewing those sites and reading their contents. You will be paid, like most programs, after you have visited the site for a certain amount of time, which is shown via a timer at the top of the page in a new frame.

PTC (Paid-To-Click):
Paid-To-Click programs are ones in which you click on banners on the site, then view and read the sites that pop-up after each banner that you click. Like PTRs, there is a timer which you will have to wait for. PTCs are usually built in to PTRs and are usually called, Paid Clicks, or Paid Links.

AutoSurf is a way of earning money just like PTCs and PTRs, only that they made in a fashion that everytime the timer has finished counting down, you will earn your money, as well as immediately moving on to the next site, excetera, excetera. Usually, the PO has the plugin to add turing numbers, in which, after the timer runs out, you must click on the correct number displayed once the timer runs out in order to proceed to the next site. This helps to stop cheaters from trying to cheat the program.

Bubble Game:
Bubble games are only allowed in E-Gold, and not PayPal (both online payment systems). Bubble games are just like bubbles. You sign-up for a bubble game and the owner of the bubble game will usually either double, triple, or whatever amount more, your original money that you put into the game. Once you put the minimum amount of money that is set by the owner into the game, you will be allowed to have your own bubble.
Your bubble rises as more people join in and create their own bubbles. Once you reach the top, your bubble "pops" and you receive your money back, including how much more that the owner promised.

Say for example, the owner promises 200% of your deposit once the bubble is complete. You deposit US$10. Once your bubble pops, you get US$20! You can keep on joining these bubble games and eventually, receive quite a lot of money!
However, there is a catch!
With Bubble Games, the last few people who join always loses and doesn't receive any money. Why? This is because when one person "pops" their bubble, the extra money that they receive is paid off by the members who joined after him/her, and so forth. However, many Bubble Games are neverending and thus, you will usually always earn more money and not lose, unless people stop joining the game. Like HYIP which will be explained below, the earlier your in, the safer you are and the earlier you'll "pop" (hopefully).

HYIPs are almost like Bubble Games in the risk factor. Here, you deposit a bit of money (usually a fixed amount), such as US$2. You are then paid everytime a person clicks on a certain link, or signs up under you. Why? This is because of they sign-up under you, they pay US$2, and thus, their sign-up payment is given to you. The person the new member signs up under is always random, so, the more people who join the HYIP, the less chances of you earning. However, unlike Bubble Games in which a Percentage is earned, HYIPs have no percentage. You are basically given unlimited US$2 payments (or whatever the owner specifies) for the rest of your life, as long as somebody signs up under you.
The thing about HYIPs is to sign-up early because as more people join, there will be less people left to actually join the program, and thus, once there are no more people wishing to join...the HYIP dies.

Paid Surveys:
Paid Surveys are quite popular due to the fact that you actually don't have to do something with it every single day, which releives stress out of many and allows you to sign-up for hundreds of Paid Surveys without having to stress you out or overload you. Basically, you are actually paid to take surveys. Although many do not believe this at first, it is actually totally true. Companies, espicially the big ones, do want your opinion. Why? This is because companies always wish to maximise profits and to do so, they must know what consumers like you and me want from them. Many song singles, movies and magazines are never seen by the general public because Paid Survey Results show that people do not like their certain products and thus, there is no point for the company to be selling them.

Thus, our opinions are vital for them and the amount that they pay for distributers to distribute and pay for us individuals to take these surveys are nothing compared to the profits that they will make for selling products that consumers like. Some companies even pay distributers to distribute Paid Surveys which help the companies to see the overall trend in society. Knowing what consumers buy these days is very vital in order to earn a lot.

For example:
When the Baby Boom had arrived, there were literally millions of babies in the world. Here, companies began massing on Babyware, such as nappies and baby food and they received heaps of profit. When these Baby Boomers became teenagers, deodarent, hair styles and clothing were most profitable. Now that they are all old, convenient tools, simple transport and an easy life in a lawn bowling club is what most need and thus, companies changes to fit these needs.

Society is forever changing and thus, Paid Surveys help to see how to maximise profits for companies. Even Sony gives out Paid Surveys for people to see what type of technological products consumers like today!

Discussion Groups:
Discussion Groups are usually an option in Paid Survey sites. Discussion Groups are basically like online chatrooms, where a certain amount of people who are allowed to join certain groups talk to each other about a certain issue, or, a certain type of product. Here, the conversation is recorded and given to the companies who paid for them. The member in return gets paid a fair amount, usually around US$100+ for their participation. Sometimes, a representative from the company itself will actually be the leader of the discussion group/focus group, asking those who participate various questions. If you love to voice your opinion, Discussion Groups/Focus Groups/Paid Surveys are the best for you! Who knows, your opinion might even help companies save millions, or, make them earn millions!

Search Engines:
Search Engines are not like Google. These SEs that we talk about are ones in which each and every link on the SE is paid by advertisers who bid on the words. You earn a percentage, usually 60-90% of the bidded price for the certain site. Each time a person clicks on the site (usually 1-3 times a day only per IP Address), you will earn money. Thus, if you advertise them heaps, you may be earning heaps of money.

Those listed above are only the basic ways of earning money online. There are many more, including starting your own online company, Graphic Designing, Web Designing, Programming, and much, much more. Unfortunately, I will talk to you about the full details of how to make money in the above, nor the ones I have summarised for you even further above. Why? This is because I am currently in the process of creating an E-Book which will talk about almost ALL the ways of earning money online, as well as Full Instructions and Support on how to make money in each category. My E-Book will be around 600 pages as far as I can visualise currently. May be more or less in the future.

Below are some Golden Rules:

1. In the GPT World, always watch out for scams. For PTRs and PTCs, etc, you should always look at how much it costs advertisers to advertise in the program. If the advertising cost does not give the PO a profit over how much the PO must pay for his/her members viewing the advertisement, then, it is most probably a scam unless the PO has other ways of earning money from the site to pay for any debt.

2. Always check that the program doesn't give you too much, at too high a pay-out. If the pay-out is over US$30, I generally do not trust the site because it is most probably a scam. If the payment per link that you click is above 1c, it is usually a scam. Therefore, if you see sites that have US$1 links, they are most probably scams out to get the newbies who think that they will earn heaps. They never pay.

3. Never give your password away to anybody, even if the PO "supposedly" sends you an e-mail asking you for your password. Also, every time you get an e-mail from a PO, always check the e-mail address and never accept any attachments, no matter if it is from the GPT world, or not as they usually contain virus' and trojans which are able to hack into all your accounts and steal all your passwords.

4. Always read the sites and search in the Search Engines that are sent to you as paid links in PTRs and PTCs as; if there are more valid clicks (aka, if the advertiser gets more visitors and money from advertising their SE, or other sites), they will come back for more. If they come back for more, they generally pay the PO, who in turn, pays the members. If you don't help the advertisers by searching for things you want, etc, then, they may not advertise anymore and thus, your PO may not have enough money generated to pay the members and thus, your not paid.

5. Be friendly to everyone but the scammers, cheaters, etc. Try to be a friendly person, unless you seriously aren't one. Helping others in turn will lead to them helping you when times are down for you.

6. Always check the Complaints and Praises folder here to see if the site that you are about to join is a scam or not. If there are no topics telling you if it is a scam or not, post in the General Discussion or Newbies Area and ask people. There will always be people waiting to help you. Never, ever, ever, ever...and I can't stress this enough...never ever join a program without knowing whether it is trustworthy or not from at least more then 3 sources. Why? The scammer may actually be posting, pretending that their program is trustworthy by pretending to be somebody else and posting that they got paid by their program. Thus, you should always find more then one or two sources just to be safe.

Good luck in the GPT World!

What is Paid To Promote (PTP)

The following is regarding the Paid-To-Promote (PTP) feature of Paid-To-Read sites running on Cash Crusader scripts. There are other PTP companies, which has nothing to do with Cash Crusader PTP. Sites that have the PTP feature give its members an additional means of earning money. By promoting the PTP link assigned to members, they can accumulate 'credits'. These credits can then be converted to cash. Whether a member wishes to use the PTP feature or not is solely up to the member. There is no rule to say a member must promote it. But most members promote is as it earns them additional money.

Some programs with PTP's credit cash to your account automatically for each valid hit you receive to your PTP link whereas in most programs, the credits will get accumulated until you redeem them yourself.

What does CPM mean?
It means Cost Per 1000. M is the Roman letter for 1000. If you see a site offering 70 Cents/ CPM, it means the same as 70 Cents per 1,000 credits.

What is a unique hit?
Sites with PTP have an xyz hour unique hits mentioned below the PTP link/s. Some are 12 hour unique hits and some 24 hours and so on. For example, let's say you are promoting a 24 hour unique hits link. If one member clicks that link, you will get credited for it. But if the same member clicks the link again before 24 hours, you will not get credited again. You will not receive credit for the second click if it is clicked before the 24 hours is up. It is the same for a 12 hour unique hits link.

You can find the PTP link/s assigned to you by going to your member area. In the member area, you will find a link called Paid To Promote, PTP Main or PTP Overview. When you click on the link or select it from the drop down menu, it will take you to your PTP area. There you will find;
- The PTP link/s assigned to promote
- The sample banners and the codes which you can promote. If you are interested in promoting any PTP banners, please make sure to host the banner elsewhere if you are not allowed to hot link the banner.

Some programs have more than one PTP link to promote, whilst some others have only one PTP link.

Sites with only one ptp link:
When you go to your member area, you will find a link called PTP Main or PTP Overview. When you click on the link or select it from the drop down menu, you will be taken to your PTP area. There, you will usually find your PTP link under "This is the link you should promote to get credited"

When you scroll down, you will find the PTP sample banners and codes. Below that, you will be able to see your stats. The stats show the name of the site you are receiving hits from, total hits, valid hits and the percentage valid.

Valid hit means, the member who clicked on your PTP link has allowed the page to load and stayed in the PTP link page until you received credit. For example, a site shows a one line notification as follows:
user has received for showing you this page.

Invalid hit means, the member who clicked on your PTP link has not stayed in the page long enough for you to receive credit.

There is no point in you receiving 100's or 1000's of hits to your PTP link if the valid hit percentage is low. It's the valid hits that count towards the accumulation of credits, which you can then convert to cash.

Sites with more than one PTP link:
Some sites have more than one PTP link assigned to members. In such instances, it is very important to go through the instructions/ rules mentioned below each ptp link to find out where you can promote each link. Some links are those any member of the site can promote, some only upgraded members can promote, some links where you can promote in auto surf sites etc. The only way of knowing where you can promote each individual link is by reading the instructions/ rules carefully.

To check status, below the instructions/ rules of the assigned links, you will find 'Approved Sites', 'Tier Info' and 'Statistics'. Approved sites mean, the sites that are approved to promote that specific link. Tier info gives you details of category ratings for countries which are based on advertising demand. Usually, the tier levels are the same in all programs, but how much credit a member receives per each hit can vary from program to program. The following is an example.

Category 1: Each hit will count as 1 credits
Category 2: Each hit will count as 0.8 credits
Category 3: Each hit will count as 0.5 credits
Category 4: Each hit will count as 0.3 credits
Category 5: Each hit will count as 0.1 credits

In order to check your statistics, you need to click on the 'statistics' link. It will take you to a page showing overall statistics. Here it will show the dates you received clicks on your PTP link, total number of clicks, number of valid clicks and some programs also show the number of invalid clicks and finally, the valid hits percentage. If you wish to see from which site/s you received clicks on a specific date, click on the date. It will take you to a page which shows the name/s of the site you received the clicks from, along with the total hits, valid hits and valid percentage.

What to check before advertising ptp links:
It is very important to check the following details before you start advertising your PTP.
- The rules of the site regarding promotion of PTP. It usually shows what sort of sites are allowed and disallowed.
- Before redeeming or purchasing advertising for a PTP, please ensure the program you are purchasing/ redeeming advertising is approved by the PTP site. If not, you will not receive credit.

There is no point in advertising in sites that are disallowed or not approved as you will not receive credit, irrespective how many clicks you may receive. All such clicks will be counted as invalid clicks/ hits which will not earn you anything. Therefore, advertising in unapproved/ disallowed sites is a waste of money.

How to convert credits to cash:
When you go to the PTP main page, you will find something like this:
Your Current Balance: 592 PTP credits Value: $0.3966
Your exchange rate is $0.67 for 1000 credits.

Your current number of Paid-To-Promote points is: 282
You can exchange these Paid-To-Promote points to cash.
The current value of points is: 70 cents for each 1000 credits

Minimum exchange quantity is 500 credits.
Exchange link will appear after you have reached minimum

OR something similar to the above.

First, check the minimum exchange quantity that the site is exchanging. Usually it is 1000 credits, but the minimum exchange quantity of some sites is 500, some others it is 2000 etc. If your PTP stats show that you have reached the minimum exchange quantity, click on the option 'convert'. Some sites automatically convert the total PTP credits to cash, but some sites give you the option to decide how many credits you wish to convert. For example, if the minimum exchange quantity is 1000 and you have 1050, you can either convert all credits or convert just 1000. It is up to you. When you convert the money, it will show in your account balance.

General Note:
When clicking PTP links of members, please make sure you wait till the page loads and the member gets credit for your visit. If you close the page after the timer runs and if by that time the page has not loaded, your click will not be counted as a valid hit. It will then be a waste of the advertiser's money and the site that sent you the PTP link/ mail may lose a valuable advertiser. Please show the same amount of attention to other member?s advertisements as you would want to receive to your own.

Very Important!

Some members make the mistake of promoting the PTP but not click any links. Promoting your PTP link, logging into your member area and converting the PTP credits to cash does not make you an active member. No matter what a big PTP promoter you may be, if you do not click at least one email or PTC link within the inactivity period stipulated by the program, you will be considered as inactive and your account deleted.

Hello. My first post.
