    I signed up with them yesterday and could see 23 clicks in my account but it is showing $0.00 as a revenue from it. Let me tell you that they have a fixed PPC rate of $0.15 so for 23 clicks my earnings should be $3.45 but as I told earnlier it is showing null there.

    Sounds like a bit scam? What is your opinion?

    Give them a week time? I think reaching $10 limit wouldn't be too tough! For other questions like less value per click email them or contact support.

    There's no doubt that you guys pays but I have certain isues with your network.

    1) First of all your ads are non targetted.
    2) Your tracking is not good. Publishers do not get detailed statistics
    3) Lately I started seeing ads of the type "Advertise on pocketcents' only which generates no revenue. Almost all the ads in the block were filled with that text.

    If you improve on these aspects you could become a leading advertising network as you already have a flat rate medium to high CPC which other networks fails to deliver.

    I find it nice that a pocketcents rep came to respond to this question makes me think that they are a legitimate opportunity with some bad luck on the back end of the website.

    Thank you for your feedback, here are the responses to your questions:

    1) PocketCents is Local Online Advertising, which means our ads are targeted by location. Our advertisers may select which regions to show their ads.
    2) Thank you for your feedback, I have forwarded your feature request to our development team. "Better tracking for publishers!"
    3) The majority of our advertisers target the united states and specific cities. It is possible that there are few advertisers targeting your area. The other users on your website will see ads from their area. We are working on multiple partnerships that will help fill these empty spaces.

    Also, you can use the "alternative code" feature in our system. This is where you can show ads from another network of your choosing in the event of empty space.

    Pocketcents are Fraudsters. My payment has not been made for 2 months and when I login the account statement says I have been paid. I have sent several emails for the past 2 months and have not received a reply. I hope someone take these internet fraudsters to task and put them behind bars.

    Pocketcents.com are indeed fakes, they don't make payments and they don't respond to emails. They responded once after I registered to help me integrate their ad and never after and also I did not paid even after sending a couple of requests.
