TrafficMonsoon - seems got programmed from absolutely beginners - even the captcha is not working correctly

by Rudolf Faix 22. August 2015 07:18

TrafficmonsoonTrafficMonsoon is tinkering permanently around in their program structure. It seems that they even don’t have a test system for keeping their amateur coders busy. For this they are using their regular users as guinea pigs.

For this you’ll get from time to time messages like:

Conducting a Small Maintenance.

We're improving your Traffic Monsoon experience, and will be back in a couple of minutes.
Sorry for this inconvenience

Further errors are:

  • You’ll end up unexpected at the login page during completing some cash links – this failure is browser independent.

  • You login to TrafficMonsoon and get the message at the Dashboard: “Cashlinks are available for you”. You follow the link and get the message “No Cashlinks are available for you”

  • You’ll get a new cash link, click on it immediately, see the advertisement, fill out the captcha and get as result the message “Sorry, Ad Expired!”. In some cases you’ll get the same advertisement shown at the next cash link and there is the advertisement not expired. The stupidity of their coders is endless in this case!

  • I have never experienced so many captcha errors like at TrafficMonsoon. It seems that they are even using manual built captchas, which got solved from a drunken one. Here is an example:

Screenshot Trafficmonsoon

You can enlarge the above screen shot to see that in the captcha field got entered 878. As result you'll get the error message shown below:

Screenshot Trafficmonsoon Error Message

The amount of failures and errors in the user interface shows that they are not testing their program properly before they put it online. In such a case are their users used as guinea pigs. Usually gets this kind of programming carried out by backyard companies without any capital or people which are overestimating themselves.

Such a company - for the case that TrafficMonsoon is a real company - is not trustful. Ordering paid services from such a "company" is a big risk - their billing would have the same or more worse logic failures than their user interface. Maybe this is the reason why they need to hide their identity by using a privacy protection service for their domain registration:

If you are thinking logical then you'll get it that TrafficMonsoon.com is only a time-wasting and/or money-wasting system. Each advertiser or advertising agency likes to get clicks because the user is interested into the product. Such user will get easier to be a customer then someone, which clicks only for the reason for getting paid or to get some clicks on his own advertisement. Such one will even not read the content of the site. You see the result already in the advertisements which they are showing you for keeping your earnings upright and in the Cashlinks. You'll get only adverisements shown from other Paid-To-Click offers and from some affiliate/mlm scammers which are hoping to get one more victim by using these systems.

The offer at their website is nothing else than a Ponzi scheme and in the most countries illegal:

As long as you are qualified, each sharing position you receive with your AdPack Combo purchase will continue to share in revenues up to $55.00. Reaching this maximum is not guaranteed, or affixed to any time frame. It's completely reliant upon sales of services, and you being qualified.

TrafficAuthority - INFINITE LEVERAGE: the scam is hidden in the videos

by Rudolf Faix 12. August 2015 12:20

TrafficAuthorityAffiliate marketers how stupid are you really? I have seen that there need only someone publish a few time waster videos and promise a unbelievable income and nobody takes a look at the conditions, which are getting found at different places insde the videos.

In the case of TrafficAuthority have a lot of people signed-up during the prelaunch time and started to make promotions for them. I like to know how many of these stupid ones will pay the US$20 license fee per month (found at the marketing plan video at position 4 min 52 sec) and at least a traffic package for US$ 220? I think that 98% from them even don't know the conditions to get paid

Take a look at the conditions, which I have collected from the videos. You'll see that you have to qualify for selling the products and you have to pay a license fee. After launch you have exactly 72 hours time to qualify or your referrals are getting another sponsor. Are you really so stupid that you pay into a system where you even don't know which kind of traffic and/or clicks you'll get? You only know that the traffic is coming from USA and Canada, but you'll not know the kind of the traffic. If it is the same quality like from TrafficMonsoon and similar offers then you are only trashing money. Such a traffic will not increase your sales!

Video Company Lauch Plan:

Time Content
02:01 Our pre-launch system has been designed to give your new Traffic Authority business a Fast Start with serious upfront money on launch day
04:27 You'll be able to get traffic for your business for FREE... Apply some of your Traffic Authority earnings to your personal traffic packages.
07:04 Your cost for all of the Traffic Optimizer tools is just $27 per month.../ $20 commission
08:55 Traffic Academy $97/month $50 commission
14:25 If you haven't upgraded within the 72 hour period... Any sales and commissions that would have gone to you will unfortunately be paid out to the next qualified sponsor permanently.

Video Compensation Plan:

Time Content
06:53 you get paid as long as you are an active Traffic Authority member
07:15 The first 6 sales on each product type are split 50/50 between you and your sponsor
07:37 After your first 6 sales on each product, the split changes from 50/50 to 80/20
08:03 If you are not qualified to earn on a product, but still make the sale, That sale will be sent to your sponsor until you're qualified to earn commissions on that product.

You can get qualified to earn commissions in 2 different ways:
  1. First, you can purchase the product you want to earn commissions on
    As soon as you make the purchase, you'll be instantly qualified to sell that product and earn commissions on it

  2. Or you can sell 3 of the products you want to earn commissions on.
    When you do that, you'll be passing up 3 commissions to your sponsor, which are sales you will lose forever, but then you'll earn commissions on that product after that.
14:50 The total commission that's paid on the $1,097 Gold package is $500
15:40 The total commission that's paid out on the $4,297 Titanium package is $2,000
17:00 The total commission that's paid out on the $8,397 Diamond package is $4,000
21:03 When they're buying traffic packages to qualify to earn commissions...

 

Video Marketing Plan:

Time Content
03:47 If you miss out on that, if that 72 hour door closes without you securing your position
The members you signed up during the Pre-Launch are going to pass on the next qualified sponsor
and you WON'T getting any commissions from their purchases OR their downlines' purchases.
04:52 You'll need to purchase the official Reseller License for $20 per month
05:59 The cheapest traffic package is $220 pays $100 commissions
07:02 Bonuses that will qualify you to sell our highest paying traffic packages without having to pay full price!

My opinion is that you'll get traffic with a higher quality for a lower price if you are using Google adwords.

TrafficMonsoon: the way how to earn without spending money

by Rudolf Faix 11. August 2015 03:42

not recommendedIf you signing up at TrafficMonsoon and take a look at the dashboard you see a lot of links where you need to spend money. You even not see that there is a way how you can earn without spending money. You see the buy menu entries at the following screen shot - don't let yourself get impressed from this - the reality is even worse, because they are betraying you with their program. So for example you'll get after watching an advertisement and after entering the captcha the message "Sorry Ad Expired" only for the reason to show you the same advertisement a second time. You can also get logged out automatically from the system after entering the captcha and in this case all your remaining advertisements disappeared after your login. This happens only during high paying advertisements ($0.01 advertisements). Additional are they from time to time using wrong captchas. You enter the right captcha but the system says you have entered it wrong. These errors are not done by a failure of the programmer - these errors are done by command of the owner from trafficmonsoon. So stupid is even not one programmer, which makes his first job!

Let us take first a look at the membership area:

TrafficMonsoon membership site

For getting qualified to earn from referrals and cash-links for the next 24 hours you have to follow the link provided in the middle of the page where it is written:

To Receive Referral Click ********From Cash Links & Share In Site Revenues You Must Be Qualified
You're Qualified For Clicking 10 Ads Until : xx yyy zzzz aa:bb cc Start Surfing

If you are viewing 10 advertisings within 24 hours you keep qualified to get your referral bonus and cash links. For viewing the 10 advertisements as a free member you'll get 5 views for your own advertisements. For the case you need such a traffic. It is not mandatory to enter an own site link into your profile.

As soon cash links are available for you, they are shown in a separate link:

TrafficMonsson Cash Links

You'll get every day some cash-links where you can earn around $0.10. That is not much, but if you have a few referrals, which are doing the same you can earn a little bit every day. At the promotion from TrafficMonsoon is written that you'll get $0.10 from your active referrals every day (https://trafficmonsoon.com/faq):

More referrals will be more money for you.

10 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 30 days = $30 from your referral clicks
10 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 365 days = $365 from your referral clicks
500 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 30 days = $1,500 from your referral clicks
500 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 365 days = $18,250 from your referral clicks
1000 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 30 days = $3,000 from your referral clicks
1000 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 365 days = $36,500 from your referral clicks

Make a more realistic calculation: 100 referrals * $0.10 earnings from cash links = $10 per day * 30 days = $300 per month for around 20 minutes daily work and a heap of troubles with errors at their website. The work is to confirm the captchas for the 10 advertisements to keep yourself qualified and to confirm with captcha around 15 - 20 advertisements (cash links). Each advertisement gets displayed between 10 and 30 seconds before the captcha can get entered. If you are lucky then the captcha is working. The most time you'll get the error message that the adversisement has expired. All these troubles will lead that you'll lose all your friends and referrals. The next time you'll invite them for some earnings they will not follow for signing up with you.

Share Up To 110 % - 10% Affiliate Program

There is no need to buy something to earn with TrafficMonsoon. Would this possibility not be available then would be the whole business model nothing else than an illegal Ponzi scheme.

Scam: myadvertisingpays.com - hidden domain ownership

by Rudolf Faix 6. July 2015 07:12

MyAdvertisingPaysEach advertiser or advertising agency likes to get quality traffic and clicks because the user is interested into the product. Such user will come easier to a customer then someone, which clicks only for getting paid which will even not read the content of the site. For this reason is the scam already included into the system from myadvertisingpays.com.

If you are thinking logical then you'll get it that myadvertisingpays.com is the same time-wasting and money-wasting system like risingtraffic.com and trafficmonsoon.com. If you like to earn money then you have to buy "adpacks" for the price of $49.90 first and you have to click on 10 ads every day. You will be able to participate on the referral program and get 10% from all referral sales. With other words they are even making money from their stupid users. The business model is more than a scam in this case.

If you participate on such a system then you'll get the most traffic from Germany - a German speaking country:

Alexa ranking of myadvertisingpays.com

Don't forget: Where you have to pay first for earning money is the system nothing else then SCAM!!!

By promoting such a scam is it in any case necessary to use a privacy protection service for the domain myadvertisingpays.com:

Fraud & Scam

risingtraffic.com - a waste of time and/or money

by Rudolf Faix 4. July 2015 10:50

Rising TrafficIf you are thinking logical then you'll get it that risingtraffic.com is the same time-wasting and/or money-wasting system like trafficmonsoon.com.

Each advertiser or advertising agency likes to get clicks because the user is interested into the product. Such user will get easier to be a customer then someone, which clicks only for the reason for getting paid or to get some clicks on his own advertisement. Such one will even not read the content of the site. He will automatize the clicks or wait until he will be able to take the next opportunity for getting more. For this is the scam already included into the system from RisingTraffic and TrafficMonsoon

The scam gets very good explained in the FAQ from RisingTraffic:

You do not need to pay for anything before using our traffic exchange services however as a free member you will only receive 1 visitor credit for 2 sites visited. After purchasing our services you will receive credit at every visit.

You have to buy AdPacks which will give you a revenue sharing position up to $39.2. You must click at least 10 ads in 24 hours to be liable for the revenue sharing position. The more the referrals the more you will earn.

There are really 4 ways to earn with RisingTraffic

  1. paid to click
  2. using ad services to generate leads to make money in your primary business
  3. revenue sharing
  4. direct sales commissions

(10 % commision is only for referral purchases.)

As each one which has something to hide hides RisingTraffic the ownership of their domain. If we take a look at Alexa then we can see where their traffic is coming from:

RisingTraffic.com Countries

If you take a look at the above table then you'll see in which countries your advertising will get seen if you make advertising with RisingTraffic. There are not really the rich countries in the list, which can bring you an income from your advertising. The only income you get is if you buy AdPacks and click on the advertising of others. For this reason is the system nothing else than a pyramid system, where you can even earn 10% from your referrals. The open question is: How long it will take until the system will break down? As the owners of the site are expecting the break down they have hidden their identity.
