What are PTC sites?
PTC sites (Paid To Click Sites) are sites which pay you a small amount of money for clicking on advertisers links. Traditionally, this was the main way to earn from these kind of sites. Over recent years, many PTC sites have morphed into GPT (Get Paid To) sites. This means that they now offer many more ways to earn money other than clicking ads. These can be through watching videos, completing offers and surveys or other tasks. 2 of the most popular websites around (Neobux and Clixsense) both offer tasks and offers as ways to increase your earning.
All PTC sites encourage users to refer users. When you register, you receive a referral url which looks like this - http://example.com/index.php?ref=username. Referring users is an easy way to boost income. If you struggle to refer users, you can in many cases either buy or rent referrals from the site for a fee. This is not always profitable though so be careful. Overall, PTC sites are very effective ways to earn money. Be careful of the many scam PTC sites around and it is advisable to only use established PTC sites with a proven history of paying their members.
Obvious signs of a scam PTC site
A large percentage of PTC sites are scam sites or unsustainable. These can quite often be avoided using a few key tips to inspect each PTC site you join
How much are the "paying" per click?
Scam PTC sites usually "pay" a high amount per click. Sometimes up to $10 a click. No advertiser in the world would pay that much for 1 click to their site. Be wary of any site offering more than 1 cent per click. Site that offer more than that are quite often scams and are trying to convince you that you can earn lots of money per click and hoping you will upgrade so they can steal your money. Be very careful and check out the site before joining. What is the total value of the ads available to click?
If a PTC site is offering you more than 4 cents of ads per GUARANTEED day to a free member then it is highly suspicious. Alot of ads (especially on newer PTC sites) are self sponsored meaning that the PTC site is paying for the ads out of their profits. Too many of these ads means that the PTC site is unsustainable and will not payout for long.
How much does advertising cost to buy?
If a PTC site is selling hundreds of 1 cent views for a matter of a few cents then they clearly are not sustainable. A PTC site is a business and there is a need to ensure that the money in is greater than the money out. If something looks too good to be true or it seems to be unlikely that they can afford to be ran in the manner they claim/promise, run away as fast as you can from the site.
Search Google for reviews of the PTC site
Check what other users are saying. There are many PTC review sites that check out if a site is paying, if a site is sustainable and you can see other users reviews and experiences with the site. If there are many bad reviews, avoid the site and it will probably save you wasting your time.
There are many scam sites that ruin the reputation of PTC sites but there are legit sites out there. You just need to be careful and not be taken in by all their promises. If something looks untrue or too good, it probably is.
