wetsiut, Just out of academic ( and potentially entrepreneurial) interest, what other forms of revenue ( other than advertisements )  do you realize from the site ?

The advertising option will be phased out in the coming weeks. People were losing money by investing in pozi's and depositing in fake gambling websites after seeing their ads on freebitco.in and thinking that they were somehow trusted because we were showing their banners.

Simply disallowing these types of websites hasn't helped because now these advertisers are creating a faucet website to get approval and then redirecting to ponzi's and gambling websites after their websites are approved. I do not have the resources to monitor all active ads regularly and so it makes more sense to just disable the advertising option.

Once it is disabled, ads that are active will continue to be shown until they run out. Any future deposits sent to the advertising deposit address will be credited to the main balance after this.

You can still create ads now. I shall start phasing this out within the next 2 weeks.

Why don't you just hire someone on the forum to filter the Ad's for you, like the signature campaign managers are managing the

signature campaigns on behalf of the companies? You submit the criteria and this "Ad Manager" verify the sites and you do the

approvals and activations? Less work for you, and a income for someone who needs a job.  Huh Your Ad's has always been very

competitively priced.. So this will be bad for the people, who want to use it legitimately.  Sad

it is a good decision as i have lost some coins investing in ponzi schemes seeing uadvertisements from faucets when i was a newbie,learned about it the hard way, i appreciate the ethics you will be holding from now on,because new users will be fooled by these scammers advertisement

The database server had crashed which caused downtime of about 3 hours. Everything is back up and running now though and there is 3x reward points until the end of this Sunday UTC to compensate for the downtime. Also active bonuses during this time have been extended by 8 hours.

a user has won $200 and that might increased your sites activity and that made the site to crash i hope  Smiley and thanks for the increased give away for the time being

The main problem I see with that, is that "few" legit users want to advertise themselves because the earnings someone might have from faucets and PTCs are relatively low and that wouldn't cover advertising prices in proportion (or at least I think so). So in the end it is usually scamers, ponzi's and that guys the ones interested in advertising thus some ponzi's are really difficult to realize.

But anyway, I see it as an appropriate option and he could be using some services like crowdflower or similar pages to do that.

I already have someone who approves ad's but the issue is with checking hundreds of active ads on a daily basis to see if any are redirecting to un-approved websites after their ad has been approved. That job would take more than 1 person I think and the revenue from ads would not make up the cost of paying for them.

Most of the revenue currently comes from the dice games. Ads only make up less than 5% of the total revenue.

Hi,

So it means that people play dice not only from faucet.. If revenue from ads is only 5% people have to deposit a lot!! Good for you!

What happen with google AdSense?
I understand that they close your account. I hear that AdSense start removing ads from all faucets, but they always give some strange reasons..
 Can you tell what happen with your account? It was about traffic, or any other reason?

Why not change the system, so that no changes can be made to the URL after it was tested and approved or are they using a legit URL

for the application, and then redirects the traffic from that URL to Ponzi's and Scams? It is a pity that legit businesses have to be

punished, because a small percentage of people misused this service. Another option would be to put a disclaimer on the page with the

banner or Ad, warning people about the Ad's that are being displayed on the site.  Roll Eyes

URL's cannot be changed but that doesn't stop the website owner from redirecting to a ponzi after their URL is approved (the URL remains the same but the website changes). It's mostly the bitcoin doubler type ponzi's who abuse this and even with their crappy design and bad english, people still seem to deposit 1 BTC+ at these websites

I have disclaimers all over the website whenever ads are shown but that still doesn't seem to stop people from investing and then blaming us and calling us a scam etc. It creates a negative reputation that we could do without.

Maybe once advertising is removed, I'll implement a system where we accept clean ads on a case by case basis.

Adsense has blocked the website from displaying ads since April this year (if I remember correctly) and also took back a bunch of money the website had made.

Im sure of that, but can you tell us what was the official reason? Till now i hear that mostly they close accounts because of traffic.. Do this happen to you also?

Once it is disabled, ads that are active will continue to be shown until they run out. Any future deposits sent to the advertising deposit address will be credited to the main balance after this.

You can still create ads now. I shall start phasing this out within the next 2 weeks.

Most of the revenue currently comes from the dice games. Ads only make up less than 5% of the total revenue.

Hi,

So it means that people play dice not only from faucet.. If revenue from ads is only 5% people have to deposit a lot!! Good for you!

What happen with google AdSense?
I understand that they close your account. I hear that AdSense start removing ads from all faucets, but they always give some strange reasons..
 Can you tell what happen with your account? It was about traffic, or any other reason?


Adsense has blocked the website from displaying ads since April this year (if I remember correctly) and also took back a bunch of money the website had made.

Im sure of that, but can you tell us what was the official reason? Till now i hear that mostly they close accounts because of traffic.. Do this happen to you also?

The reason they gave is "incentivized traffic" ie. paying people for using the website.

wetsiut, Just out of academic ( and potentially entrepreneurial) interest, what other forms of revenue ( other than advertisements )  do you realize from the site ?

The advertising option will be phased out in the coming weeks. People were losing money by investing in pozi's and depositing in fake gambling websites after seeing their ads on freebitco.in and thinking that they were somehow trusted because we were showing their banners.

Yep. I thought so .. My account they close for "encouragement to click".. In other words, thay was looking for argument to close faucets.

Why don't you just hire someone on the forum to filter the Ad's for you, like the signature campaign managers are managing the

signature campaigns on behalf of the companies? You submit the criteria and this "Ad Manager" verify the sites and you do the

approvals and activations? Less work for you, and a income for someone who needs a job.  Huh Your Ad's has always been very

competitively priced.. So this will be bad for the people, who want to use it legitimately.  Sad

I already have someone who approves ad's but the issue is with checking hundreds of active ads on a daily basis to see if any are redirecting to un-approved websites after their ad has been approved. That job would take more than 1 person I think and the revenue from ads would not make up the cost of paying for them.

Why not change the system, so that no changes can be made to the URL after it was tested and approved or are they using a legit URL

for the application, and then redirects the traffic from that URL to Ponzi's and Scams? It is a pity that legit businesses have to be

punished, because a small percentage of people misused this service. Another option would be to put a disclaimer on the page with the

banner or Ad, warning people about the Ad's that are being displayed on the site.  Roll Eyes

URL's cannot be changed but that doesn't stop the website owner from redirecting to a ponzi after their URL is approved (the URL remains the same but the website changes). It's mostly the bitcoin doubler type ponzi's who abuse this and even with their crappy design and bad english, people still seem to deposit 1 BTC+ at these websites

I have disclaimers all over the website whenever ads are shown but that still doesn't seem to stop people from investing and then blaming us and calling us a scam etc. It creates a negative reputation that we could do without.

Maybe once advertising is removed, I'll implement a system where we accept clean ads on a case by case basis.

Well your "case by case" solution to this problem would seem to be the perfect solution, but I am just worried about the income stream

you are losing from this, and added to that the income that are lost from the AdSense. Will the site survive on the income generated

purely from the gambling side? Well, with your traffic, it would be a shame not to be able to advertise on your site.  Sad

Yes, in the last 30 days, ad revenue was just 2.5% of the total free play rewards+ref. commission on it's best day. It really produces very little revenue for the work that is entailed in maintaining it.

has long played here but never the same once I get the results of the lottery every week.. lol  Cheesy

What do you mean by played there? You play on their dice games or just claim their faucet? If you played their faucet, I think you can't never claimed their lottery because the chance is really low. Meanwhile if you are playing on their dice games, you might have the chance to get the lottery but until now there are no one that ever claimed it although they have a lot of tickets
