    The ad specifically says:
    quote:
    Online merchants will pay you to host their links and refer customers


    I don't get paid to "host links" :confused:

    Or am I the only one who sees this as "misleading" [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    From a legal standpoint, it's probably okay because it says "AND refer customers". But it does give the impression that just hosting links will make money...

    More of concern is the fact that they state figures with no disclaimer!!! That's a definite no-no in advertising...

    Yep, you only get paid when you refer customers. Not visitors, but customers

    @Professor
    How can you post this on this thread
    quote:
    Borderline legal...definitely misleading

    and this on another thread
    quote:
    If you track the click thrus as leads but pay as clicks you have very little fraud
    and not know you are doing something wrong?

    Am I missreading/missunderstanding the bottom quote or is it one standard for you and another for the rest?
