can you lose money out of your pocket with this?
You can only lose money if you spend money through google adwords. Google adsense does not cost you anything at all. You just have to get enough traffic to your websites in order to make anything. Hope that helps
Yes, Adsense pays YOU when people click on advertisements from your website.
Adwords, on the other hand, makes you pay for every click someone makes.
I see your website is all about google ads - can you enlighten US on how that guy got google ads for free??
pshhh its most likey a scam, hahaha i never bought it.
excuse me - then why promote it??
lol why not?
You don't know the difference between Adsense and Adwords yet you pass yourself off as an authority on the subject while promoting a product about the same when you think the product is likely to be a scam?
Furthermore, you are recommending something that you have never tried?
What are you trying to accomplish? Are you hoping to make money off of our forum members on something you think is a scam?
Would you like to spend your hard-earned money on a scam? Some of these folks don't have much money to spare but they are genuinely searching for an education in online marketing in hopes of creating a better life for themselves and/or their family.
If a person gets scammed too often, chances are that they will become bitter and they will quit pursuing the subject. They'll be worse off than if they had never taken an interest in the first place. I'd like to think that you wouldn't want to put anyone through that sort of trouble.
I suggest acting honestly and responsibly when you place a link in your signature. Everyone here has a moral claim on everyone that posts. There is an unspoken assumption of a certain level of honesty in this forum. The expectation is quite high here.
Ethically we all owe it to everyone else to know what we are talking about and to be honest when ever we teach or recommend (even if it's a passive recommendation via sig link). Obviously it's okay to be mistaken once in a while. I make mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes.
The purpose of this forum is to share information with the forum community. Newbies ask a lot of questions. The intermediates have an equal give and take. The advanced members do a lot of teaching and provide inspiration to the entire community.
It's not ethically viable to suggest a product or program that you have not tried. Even worse, it's very objectionable to recommend something that you suspect is a scam.
I'd appreciate it if you'd remove the link in question from your signature until you have purchased the product, experienced adequate or better results via use of the product, and feel that this community would benefit from investing their hard-earned money in the product.
Thank you for your consideration,
cosign to Newbie's comment.
there are countless ways to earn an honest living online and countless member here who do so. If you are genuine about your desire to earn a living online then please stick around and LEARN some real marketing from some of the successful members here.
Unlike most forums there are countless member who really do want to help so long as you are willing to learn.
Wishing you a successful and HONEST future,
newbie shield i would have to agree with you, i have purchased all the products i review, i have give my honest opinion and i am sure most others do to.
Kevo i have helped you, however there are some ethical lessons you need to learn, i dont even think the forum allows you to directly use a hoplink in the signature (unsure) but for you to think it is a scam and still promote it . hmmmmmmmm.
Please remove it.
i am deeply sorry you guys. i'll remove it right away
Open and Hemjoe are right.
Thank you for removing the link.
I didn't see the link in question, but there are 2 ways of getting 'free' adwords ads that are mentioned in ebooks I've read.
One system is basically to set up a portal site and sell advertising to that site (while placing your own banners on it as well), then use adwords to drive traffic to your portal. The concept is that the advertising income offsets your adwords expense - voila! free adwords ads.
The other system I've seen is basically gaming the credits that come with reseller packages. You set up a reseller hosting package for say $200 bucks and you get a $450 adwords credit voucher. Rinse and repeat. This is a lot of trouble because you need to set up a brand new adwords account each time. Also it always struck me as fraud (even though I haven't ever heard of Google going after anyone for it)

Google Adsense is free to join, you only have to spend time developing and marketing your website
I think it's generally a waste of time to try to invest time in "scamming" or other methods of getting things for free. It's always wise to look for a good value, but investing a bunch of time in getting free adwords, is just investing time in a loophole that's likely to be closed. Anything which isn't sustainable isn't really worth investing in.
If you make it up to ~ $75 quickly, they will disable your account to avoid paying you..... seen it happen to many people, many times.
This is just nonsense. I've known people who built a new site and reached payout in a week and got paid.
On the other hand, if people use scammy tactics (clicking their own ads, getting friends to click ads, joining ad clicking circles, etc), then yeah - they get banned.
