PTC sites - Reviewed

In this post I am going to deal with PTC (Paid To Click) sites. Let me first introduce you about PTC sites.

What is a PTC site?
Paid To Click is an online business model that draws online traffic from people aiming to earn from home. Paid-To-Click, or simply PTC websites act as middlemen between advertisers and consumers; the advertiser pays for displaying ads on the PTC website, and a part of this payment goes to the viewer when he views the advertisement.

The viability of the PTC business model has been questioned, as fraudulent clicks have ramped up the expenses for advertisers. With lawsuits filed against the internet search companies, the burden has been placed on Google, Yahoo and others to determine the valid clicks from the fraudulent ones, although PTC site may just be used as advertising, to direct traffic to one's site. Moreover, many users registered in PTC websites are bots.

Even though advertisement is the most widely known method for PTC to stay alive, most of the profit comes from the direct sales of fake referrals which are created virtually by the PTC owner at his will. To cover up this entire scheme, PTC owners inject some normal ads from fictional advertisers, thereby keeping the system running smoothly.

Some PTCs are also used to mimic mass human traffic, which can help a botnet stay undercover and perform click fraud activity in second and third-tier ad networks. Many PTC owners also pollute the ads with malware and botnet rootkits.

Scams, although exposed on various PTC forums, are still heavily used by newcomers who are drawn in to the websites by search engines. Scam PTC sites are known to attract new users with cheap offers for upgrades and referrals and disappear without trace after a short time.

Make Money Online with PTC….
If you are thinking to make money online by joining on of the PTC sites, then the main thing is to choose your PTC site very carefully. It takes nearly one month to reach the minimum pay out at every PTC site. So at end if it comes out to be a scam, you will find yourself frustrated.  There are few things which if you keep in mind, you can easily select the right PTC sites for yourself. First of all there is no PTC site which gives you more than $0.02 per click. Every legit PTC site will only give you fraction of a dollar. And if you find a PTC site offering you more than $1 per click, it’s the time for you to move out of that site. It surely to be a scam.

As I mentioned above, it takes nearly one month to reach the minimum payout. But what if you want to make it fast? Don’t worry. Every PTC site allows you to refer others about them. If you refer your friend to join a particular PTC site, and if your friend joins and start making clicks, that particular site will grant you credit for the click made by your friend along with the clicks made by you. The credit earned by your referrals click is generally less than that earned by your click.

For helping you to choose the right PTC site I have mentioned few legit sites, and few most popular scam sites, so that you stay away from them.
