Infolinks.com / infolinks.com Scamming Advertisers and Publishers

1 United States Review updated:

INFOLINKS.com - This "in-text" advertising company scammed us as advertisers and as publishers.
Infolinks.com delivers completely fake clicks. We just did a study on it (using our technology which is 100% foolproof)
Infolinks.com in-text ads are a SCAM for advertisiers. In one part of the study, we advertised through infolinks a product with a good sell through rate from other advertising avenues. Infolinks charged for thousands of clicks, but the clicks resulted in 0% sales. I won’t go into the technical details, but the implication is of fake clicks.

As for scamming publishers, we managed to earn about $3600, and when the time came for them to pay to us, they said that "some of the clicks were probably illegitimate" (note:probably) and then they shut down out publisher account.
Avoid this company, if you are looking for an adsense alternative - look somewhere else!

    Hey, this is Tammy from Infolinks. There are some very strong allegations being put forth on this page regarding Infolinks. I can assure you that our publishers and advertisers are benefiting from our In-Text ads. Our publishers get paid in full and on time and our advertisers receive the clicks that they pay for. We have cutting edge technology to track fraudulent clicks and in order to protect our publishers and advertisers we must act to protect them by closing accounts participating in such fraudulent actions.
    Legitimate blogs with real content and advertisers will and do benefit from Infolinks. If you have more questions about your account, our support team is always available for you. Just shoot us a quick email to support (at) infolinks.com.

    Well, well Tammy! This is Steven from Alabama. I bought some advertising through 7search and started running traffic for the keywords "home business" and "home business opportunity." I had the campaign set to phrase match, not broad match. I also limited the campaign to English-speaking countries. After several hundred clicks and not even a single lead, I did some digging. Most of my traffic was being sent from Infolinks. I thought 7search had their own publishers? I'm sure they do, but apparently not enough, and they have a relationship with Infolinks. Well Infolinks is a scam. You have depleted my advertising dollars with "clicks" (notice the quotes) from porn sites, foreign language sites, teenmomnews.com, puffgames.com, crappy looking sites of all kinds and all languages. So, how is that for strong allegations? My email, so you and the Infolinks lawyers can contact me for my address is steven.j.matthews@gmail.com. Sue me please. You would lose.

    Why infolink is showing 0.0 eCPM for 429 ad views for around 3 days?
