When I opened this blog in November 2015, I never knew how bloggers made their money, I just felt good when I was getting traffic and comments. I started visiting tutorial blogs like ogbongeblog.com where I understood what blog monetization was all about including Adsense. I didn’t apply for adsense at that time but I started testing other Ad networks like Adquet and Adclickmedia.com. Around January 2016, I was earning about $0.30 – 0.50 daily on adclickmedia.com with threshold being $50, I was determined to reach it and cash out. Anyway, I think I removed them when I was on $5 to test other Ad networks and didn’t place them back since I finally got an adsense account around March.
Fast forward to October 2016, I decided to test them again by placing their codes and believe me, I was enjoying the performance. Earnings was from $2-5 daily and it took me about 3 weeks to earn $73.
According to them, they pay the previous months earnings up to $50 on the 15th of the next month, so I was expecting my $73 which is approximately N28,000 on the 15th of December to my PayPal account, already made plans for the money anyway. Dec 15th came and I didn’t get any mail or payment from them. I waited till 17th before calling them, after talking to the customer care agent, she gave me assurance that I’d be paid once they were done checking my account, that I should be patient…
Up till January, I didn’t get any payment so I had to call again, I was told my account wasn’t checked yet, but this is something Adsense do within a day!!!. I waited till January ending then called again. This time, when I told her my username, she stopped talking, she just kept quiet on the phone, and you know the cost of calling a USA number right here from Nigeria. Anyway, I still decided to call with a different phone number and I was told to still wait, this was like 2 months after payment date and my hard earned money was still no where to be found.
I went over to Google search to look for Adclickmedia payment proof and I found some bloggers posting screenshots and all of them were praising this ad network. Like seriously??? Damn! Anyway, I found a thread on Digital point, you can read it ➨ Here where some bloggers were complaining on not being paid. I was able to find a fellow Nigerian blogger, the owner of ufarblog.com who told me his account was deleted. What a scam Ad network!!!
If I call their number now, I’m always being redirected to the voice mail and I have to come to the fact that I am not ever getting my $73 from them.
I had to write this review and be as transparent as possible because I noticed most bloggers praised them in their posts, may be out of ignorance or just for getting referrals, but I wish to advice all bloggers to not waste their time with them. You can check other exclusive ⇏ blogging tips ⇐
