3 Reasons why PTC is Bad Business for your Blog!

If anyone out there is considering using PTC sites or traffic exchange sites to make money online then my simple advice is to forget it! PTC to me seems almost like a camouflaged method of getting people to click on your ads or ad networks such Google Adsense to increase both your profits whilst these clickers are getting paid for it.

I don’t understand fully the concept of it all and why it hasn’t been condemned, but what I do know is that it can seriously damage your ability to make proper money online from your blog.

PTC + traffic exchange sites = Crap traffic!

If you’re blogging for the desperation of making money then this isn’t a way at all. Traffic exchange sites will bring your traffic but it will be crap non targeted traffic and you’ll see your bounce rate go through the roof!

Against Google’s TOS!

Simple, using traffic exchange sites to drive traffic to your ads is against Google’s terms of service.

…Content regarding programs which compensate users for clicking on ads or offers, performing searches, surfing websites, or reading emails…

A Complete Rip Off!

To top it all it isn’t cost effective at all. You pay a premium fee to generate a large number of non-targeted traffic to your blog simply to have your ads clicked and in return you’ll receive less, much, much less back!

Do you have your own thoughts about the use of PTC sites with blogs? Do you use PTC sites for your blog? Comment below and share your thoughts and opinions.
