    Still using Adbrite on proxies? Be cautious

    Just got notice yesterday that my Adbrite account as been disabled and all earnings forfeited. The reasoning stated is "invalid clicks or impressions". I asked for clarification or any additional information and got a response back that basically only said 'we use a proprietary system to track ads and it flagged your traffic'. I only used Adbrite on my proxies (for the past 1+ year) so I can only assume their system is not happy with proxy traffic lately and I got the boot.

    Luckily Adbrite was never that high an earner for me so I'm only out around $20 from this period.

    Now to find me a new income source, what are you using these days on proxies? Specifically on proxified pages.

    I already use Adsense (homepage), MediaShakers, and Adversal.

    Cheers.

    Oh, and please don't spam me with "Sign up under me in Smowtion and receive 80%" , etc garbage. You can tell me your experience with any company, just don't spam me with promotions.

    Have you tried selling adspace directly on your proxified pages?

    Refusing to pay is so unethical, even Google has stopped doing it.

    No I haven't. I wouldn't really even know where to begin to find direct advertisers for proxified pages, it's kinda a tough market to sell. Have you done it? Any tips?

    But Adversal and MediaShakers have been doing good for me, so it's not like I'm in a dire need at the moment.

    Yeah it's no good, especially when there is no clarification on the exact reasoning behind it either. Who's to say that 99.9% of the earnings where legit and that 0.1% is the so called "bad traffic"; and now they get to just forfeit all? Ridiculous. They really should have to provide an itemized breakdown for things like this. Oh well, like I said, at least it wasn't a large amount.

    Or to say that they didn't just need to improve short-term cashflow because of poor management or to improve short-term profitability to prepare for a sale of the company.

    No, but I've seen Zash doing it on GuardTunnel and I remember he made enormous profits out of it
