    Coupon, Bargain, and Freebie Site Owners
    If you have decent traffic, and would like to make some dough, please pm me. I would like to place a text link (straight url) at the top of the fold of the front page of a site that offers freebies, or coupons, or bargains, and the like. I will want some verification as to the traffic your site receives. I do not want ppc, or cpm, but a flat rate deal for a certain period of time. If this is something you might be interested in, and have something to offer then please send me a private message.

    I do not have a big budget right now, so those of you who want to charge in the thousands, or more need not bother. I simply do not have the extra bread at this time to afford that kind of advertising.

    If you would like to exchange links please send me a private message.

    Thanks.

    Buy some Ad space for your BHO infested freebees on the web pages of sites like 180Solutions -WhenU -Gator and eBates... etc etc. I heard their traffic gets into the hundreds of millions so a one line static link will make you rich.

    Interpreted through my Spin decoder: "You want quality victims for earning fees from feeding them to the felonious thieves." Your just the innocent conductor, ticket collector or engineer on the train ride to doom.

    all righty then - BTW, I have met with my fellow thieves and we have decided to target your site and merchants. We have written a secret encoded script to specifically target your site everytime clicks on a keyword we have associated with your site! Your commission will drop to zero, and you will have to creat another site becuase your current site/mall will be rendered useless! THEN! we are going to mass produce the code by sending it out through drive by download/installs, like thecomet cursor thng, but instead it will be an elctronic FART that we are placing on everyones machine, and everytime you post here the fart sound will go off on the users machine!

    If it's for free ecards/greeting cards you may want to revise your strategy. To add these programs on your website is in fact taking part in felonious theft of other peoples commission.

    My site is not about ecards. It is one of the sections in which I am trying to promote free greeting cards, i.e. ecards, printable cards, snail mail offers, etc..

    Please stay on topic with this thread. thank you.

    To expose the bad practices of a few affiliate marketers is the MAIN topic of this board.

    no, this thread was a desperate plea from a small timer to get traffic to his new site, which is not indexed in the search engines. For that matter, probably longbefore you ever posted at abw, I was in many of the discussions about the evils of parasiteware. go back searchengineforums.com, or wmw, or wherever you came from.

    Lurker Jones - AND YES, this often results in people getting spam omelettes, and sandwiches every day. BUT HEY, just in case you (or Mike, or anyone else) didn't realize, we (publishers/affiliates, advertisers, et al) are all a part of that machine, like it or not.
    No, that's not true. I'm sorry, but most people at ABW are smart enough to avoid working with companies spreading spam and BHO's.

    I don't know anybody coming from these forums long before I ever posted at abw still looking to get traffic for a freebie site. The people I met at that time are all successful.

    you misunderstood
    Look, man, I am trying to get a hook up on some traffic. I promote free offers, coupons, and bargains at my site. Yes, I have a free greeting cards section. if this doesn't appeal to you, then don't inquire. Like I said, I have never thought you were terribly swift. Go take a break, work on a web page...

    I haven't seen your freebie site but am curious as to why people would give away something for nothing. From the freebies on your site, what are they getting out of it? From any freebie i've ever seen it's usually to get an email addy to spam later, to dl something, things of that nature.

    well
    I work off commission, like many here at abw. I promote merchants who offer free samples, trial offers. I do have a "Bargain Board", and "Coupon" section, etc... I do have a fairly good sized "Free Games" section with 26 pages of shockwave games that people can play at my site. The only download anyone needs to install is "Shockwave", which I think our consipiracy theorists on the board would admit is something that most users have, or at least wouldn't cause anyone to lose their commissiions. I promote the likes of eversave, and coolsavings, along with others. I have made fairly good money on these advertisers in the past, so I am doing this again; if it aint broke, don't fix it - this has worked well in the past, so I am doing it again. I don't think coolsavings downloads harmful spyware on anyones machine, btw.

    Basically, I have a site much like any other couponer affiliate around here. My site might be compared to Lisa Freebies site (do you remember?). I don't know if she posts any more, but I think her site is still online. It is not the same design and all, but similar in theme - freebies.

    I do plan on offering a free "tell a friend" service, and free forms hosted on my site for those webmasters who could use them. no charge, or download invlved. it is my way of trying to get some links back to my site. back to your question, as I am sure you know this: I get lead commissions from advertisers I promote. I am signed up with networks like LinkShare, Befree, CJ, and the likes.

    Sorry, trust, that I am a bit sarcastic. but this thread was not meant to go this way. of course we have always had our share of idiots around here. I have been stupid a few times myself. sigh

    "no, this thread was a desperate plea from a small timer to get traffic to his new site, which is not indexed in the search engines."

    If you're not even indexed, instead of paying for a link, probably better just to exchange links which will cost you nothing. Then get indexed and see how it goes. You said you wanted to pay for a link for a certain period of time but when you stop paying, the link goes away and so does any benefit.

    good idea. cheap, too! I have not been successful at getting the exchanges I need. I have inquired, and have posted this on the board as a last resort. I didn't want to come across as spammy. I have searched for sites. Submitted my url, added the other sites to mine, but have not received alink back, or response from these sites. sigh. so... I was hoping I could find someone who would could offer a placement at the top of their page, for $$$. But you are right, I guess I should wait to see where the chips fall.

    It is one of the sections in which I am trying to promote free greeting cards,
    Oh, I didn't see *that.* I didn't scour every single page and link-out, after all...

    A lot of free greeting cards, ecards, etc. that places offer ARE now parasite-ridden. So, you should test (if you haven't already) to make sure that those merchants really aren't giving customers a little "something extra" (ie, fleas) along with their free stuff...

    I see that only the 2-week trial there is free, then it's $13.95/yr. They're probably okay (IMO)...they're monetizing the site by charging for memberships.

    It's the ones who say they never charge, that get up to the most stuff. After all, their money's got to be coming from somewhere! When it's not coming off the user's CC (free trials excluded), chances are it's coming from spamming, or 180, or some other crud.

    As for testing, the only way I know of to do it yourself is to sign up/do the download, and see if you find yourself infested--or ask someone who has already done so (and knows what to look for!), for instance Kellie aka Ms. B. Her testing computer has probably seen every parasite to crawl the net...
