TrafficRoots scam network warning

    Giant warning in case anyone decides to try out Traffic Roots.

    We rotated them in for a month and performance was extremely good, but come payout they said my lifetime CTR was less than 0.000005% and "advertisers were demanding refunds", which makes no sense anyway as they're a CPM network and there is literally nothing about required performance metrics listed on any of their FAQs or documentation.

    But about that supposed CTR, well...

    This is their own dashboard. Do the math yourself. They are straight up lying. These guys really, really screwed me over hard during our annual largest month of organic traffic. This is my livelihood here.

    Avoid these guys with your life.

    Why using these never heard ad networks? Go with popads, adsterra, clickadu, exoclick, cpx24, popcash and your precious earnings will be in good hands

    We don't use pop ads. Display banners only. Non-adult.

    We have high quality standards for our display ads but due to being a Cannabis-centric community we're limited by choices.

    No dating, gambling etc ads, our users are savvy and we treat them with respect, and they treat us in kind.
