    CyberBounty - Is it a joke?
    I applied to the affiliate network CyberBounty.com and at the end of application, they give me an image which is called "veritag" to place somewhere at the bottom of the page. They stated that this is a required step and my site will be reviewed in 48 hours. But nothing happened during this period. According to the information provided, they are doing this to examine site's traffic. Ok, I can understand that. But why they don't put a tag or a spacer type image which can not be seen? The image they require to be placed is nearly as big as a 125x125 banner. Anyone has any experience with this network and their veritag? Am I just doing free advertising for them? I contacted them but didn't receive any reply. If I remove the image they will claim that I removed the image and my application declined. If I let the image there, I am simply making their advertising.

    Did you do this before or after you posted you are staying just with Shareasale?

    You need to clarify what you are doing if you are going to attract any interest here. You have been advised to stay just at Shareasale and indicated that was your new plan. Be aware that all the opm's here are not going to work with you if you are going to ignore the advice you receive either here or from the OPM.

    I signed up to cyberbounty as an affiliate. It's very different. At shareasale, I have a merchant account. I understand that it's not a good idea to open more than on merchant account and I will NOT open another one. Am I required also to have only one affiliate account? I know that many sites have affiliate accounts with different networks.

    You can be an affiliate for whoever you want, you did not make it clear you were signing up as an affiliate and since you were talking about placing a pixel, that is something merchants do and not affiliates. I would run far and fast if I were you.

    I would focus on being either a merchant OR affiliate until you get better established. But of course that is just my opinion....

    They stated that my site will be reviewed in 48 hours. It's been more than that. I contacted them before and didn't get any answer. They don't have any representative here... I just removed the image and this topic closed...

    Hi Mybest,

    I have joined the forum today after reading your thread and would like to share your opinion about Cyberbounty. Let my elaborate about these people. Cyberbounty does not have good reputation in the market and this is not the first time I have heard issues about them.

    Moreover the issues associated with Cyber bounty is not just limited to false promises to build temporary back links. Their existing affiliates have shared concerns related to the payment issues as well. So why become affiliate of companies with bad market exposures. I' have friends who have real life personal bad experience with Cyberbounty, and I'd suggest noone should invest time and efforts with them.

    Thanks,
    V.

    Thumbs down Cyberbounty scams and black reviews' list is un-ending
    Well well well... seems like Cyberbounty.com is being discussed here. this organization is a fraud dude. not to be dealt with. the owner is a criminal who has been convicted once for publicizing child porn.

    But apart from the owner, Mr. Mark Kassar, the company known as Aspire Communication Services, LLC, is itself has been in news and review sites. The reason it the scams they have done with their numerous affiliates.

    If you have not been their victim yet, it is great. If you are a current affiliate of them, try to get your payment en-cashed with them asap (this is going to be a problem, I'll you.... but still try) and get over with them.

    Find better and more affiliate networking companies with cleaner reputation.

    Hi Chuck,

    Thanks for allowing me to post the link. I'm sorry for the delayed response as I had been occupied with "Sandy" news in past week. Here are the links from some unsatisfied affiliates -

    - Blog Exclusive - CyberBounty Ads for Basic4Android

    - Cyber Bounty review: WM review of Cyber Bounty associate program.

    - www.cyberbounty.com - Similar Sites and Reviews | Xmarks

    Moreover, regarding Mark Kassar, he owns various websites which allows children to view porn sites via a secret toolbar which stays hidden from their parents. Mark Kassar is basically involved into highly unsocial activities and that explains the screwed up management at CyberBounty. Check the following links that justifies my statement -
