More than just cashback. Just launched from an industry veteran of 15 years. Offers, surveys, ad network, good ref program and so on. Lots of options.

Example offer (Black Friday) - 1 years cpanel hosting, $24 all in nets $45 cashback!

What you’ve written and what the site appears to be that you’ve linked to doesn’t even make sense

That's because this is a very different model to the ones out there - the whole concept is pretty unique (not an off the shelf script or anything - its taken two years to write). It's an ad network, 'borderless' search engine (you can look at search results in any country), cashback offers, surveys, affiliate program - pretty much all in one.

I'm putting in offers in as we speak. I'm just trying to get people to 'get' it as there is (possibly) too many options!

Thanks!

PS - It may make more sense if you go to Adyield Rewards

it appears to just be an ad network masquerading as a number of other things but an ad network at heart

You pretty much have it. Ages ago I did develop the site as a network so the heart of it is indeed an ad platform. However a year ago I discovered most of the ad feeds had disappeared or turned completely junk so I migrated it into an 'all in one' earning / rewards site.

The core is ad network but the truth is, as a guy who spent ages on the site, I had to turn it around. There is just no time to market an ad network these days - me on my own = no time to make it, market it AND run it etc. Not to mention the costs - astronomical. It's not like 10 years ago when I had loads of affiliate sites. It's the changing times - sites are so much bigger, so much more to do - it's nuts.

So I setup an offers section, surveys / offerwalls, forum etc - most of it opens up once you join. Not a huge amount of offers but they are independent rather than being ad network based so I have flexibility with offers to join, plus there is no middleman taking an extra cut in commissions.

It's kind of like swagbucks but more search engine based - due to the ad network side of things. I think when people get it, it will work - it's just not as in your face as a rewards site. Also the search engine allows you to look at results abroad (change your location to Germany and see what .de sites are saying about Brexit!) and it allows some interesting research. I noticed Google took this feature away from Chrome when I was making it so I kept it all as a core network and search engine.

It one of those things - two years solid was a labour of love so I was not deleting the search engine! No idea if it will work.....it should as there is decent offers, an affiliate program and quite a few options in there. I can only give it a try.

Trying to get people to use to go a ad network site > use their search engine for general searching when you KNOW it won't provide as good results (or give results based on their geo location etc) is going to be quite a hard sell.

We are 20+ years into using Google and apart from people using something like duckduckgo for privacy reasons or Bing because it comes as the default search engine you are going to be going against peoples nature a lot. Google even beds into the links of your email, notifications, android phone etc. it's far more than just search.

I wonder if you would be better off just making the site an all out paywall / GPT site

Hi Jon

I wanted to provide something of value and a bit more professional as the pay rates for offers / networks in the GPT sphere are astonishingly bad. They are also notoriously bad for traffic. Doing it the way I have means I have already managed to get accepted by all the major networks and so can pass on proper pay rates to members.

I used to run some pretty big sites a long time ago (about 10 years) but nowadays the bigger sites have just takes over and make it almost impossible to compete. Ad prices have gone up massively since I was all over the net 10 years ago!

I am kind of hoping the affiliate program will give it some traction. There is key reasons for using the site (well, about making money) and all ads around the site offer decent payouts. There are a tonne of options and it makes me sick seeing what people accept as 'pay rates' online these days.

I think a lot of it (and this is true for many people making a site) is that I have got serious 'tunnel vision'. That is, I understand it as I made the site, but people at first glance probably won't. I guess I need to chip away and hope it gets into the right channels.

Perhaps I even put too many things in there in the end as I altered the core of the sites direction.
