    Exclamation Smowtion deleting all my proxies

    I just wanted to let you know that Smowtion every day deletes some proxies of mine without giving notice. That is they stop serving ads.

    You might want to check if your proxies are on red, too.

    I have not received any mail or imformation from them, which I find lousy. I think they just want to get rid of (my) proxies.

    I will keep you posted.

    I knew that Smowtion would eventually take this turn...

    Very disappointing.

    I have still some active ones running, too. But they "killed" my best ones, which also had the most text on it.

    They responded they were rejecting new proxies, which is not true. They have been flagging proxies for 2 days, seems randomly.

    I wonder what they tell me next, cause the top proxies of mine were really not lacking text.

    On the postive side we note that they responded to my ticket ...

    It's normal. As an advertiser, would you want your ads to be shown on set & forget proxies or rather proxies that get a few thousand users daily and that is going to stay up for the upcoming weeks?

    Those .co.cc one week proxy owners have taken advantage of Smowtion, but now Smowtion is taking them back ;

    Just to let you know that my best proxies have a fairly good amount of content and traffic including some com domains and .info proxies. Out of all proxies I have only had one co.cc domain with them created for testing purposes a long time ago.

    There are some set and and forget proxies of mine, too. Smowtion keeps showing ads on them. Why they choose the particular proxies and put them on hold them can only be accounted by their chaotic way of doing things.

    I have no official confirmation indication that Somowtion does not want proxies any longer in general, what they recommend is putting more content. However, excatly those proxies with most content got flagged, and the set and forget proxies continue to serve Smowtion ads.

    Regards,
    H.

    BTW: I don't have bad traffic as these countries are sent to a special gateway.

    Update: They just closed the ticket in which I asked for reasons why they have put on hold my established proxies (without touching some set and forget proxies).

    As usual, ticket got closed. No response.
