Clicksor - Advertisers, stay away...

16 replies
Hello. So I wanted to write about my experience with Clicksor, which as you can read from the title, was not very positive.

In my search for a good advertising network I came across clicksor.com. I created an advertiser account and set up my campaign and deposited $20.

My campaign was approved within a day and a Clicksor support staff called Sylvia sent me an email telling me that my campaign was approved.

About 30 minutes after I received this email something really weird happened, I was looking at my Google Analytics account on the website's real time statistics (where it shows the visitors currently on the site live) and I noticed that from zero visitors it went to 45 in a minute! I thought great! This is awesome, of course it didn't last long, about 5-7 seconds later ALL the visitors were gone, no exceptions!

I logged in to my Clicksor account and guess what, $20 gone. Just like that!
I switched to Analytics again and I saw that 45 visitors from Clicksor came to the site the exact same minute and ALL of them stayed exactly 5 seconds, 100% bounce rate.

Let me just clarify that I use many other advertising venues for the website and the average visit time of the last 2 weeks was 2 minutes and bounce rate in 60%.

I replied to the Clicksor support staff, Sylvia, asking her what's going on, a day passed, then two, then three... No reply. I created a new support ticket and waiting for 2 days, up to this point, I didn't receive an explanation from Clicksor and will be filling a complain on PayPal for a refund, I will post the results from PayPal here.

The bottom line is that I will not suggest to anyone to try Clicksor. The support didn't even make an effort to justify the situation. $20 were going in 10 seconds and all visitors were bots, stay away.

Sorry for the long post

    I have an account but never used them
    Have an account with infinityads which I think is owed by the same crowd
    Traffic is awful takes ages to get ads approved as customer care is dreadful

    I had issues with them as well. I set up my account and deposited $20. When I tried to log in it told me my password was not correct. I sent them an email and they responded and said it should work now. So, I tried logging in again and it didn't work again. I sent a few more emails but never got a response.

      I had this issue as well at the beginning, after a lot of searching I found that you can't login from the obvious login page which is:

      Clicksor - Login - Yesup

      but you should use this one:
      https://account.yesup.com/dpt/login

      Which is like a completely different domain. I'm guessing they belong to some kind of network? But still, why redirect someone the first login page when it doesn't even work?

    I never knew that. Thanks. I'll try it. Then I'll see if I can blow my entire $20 on 10 seconds of bot traffic. Not like I plan to use that traffic source again.

      Well I don't know how they stay in business if they offer such crappy traffic and treat their customers like that.

    I had the same experience. The same Sylvia (do they have other support staff?) Transferred into my campaign $13 without by approval and I wasted 4 dollars only thanks to my to daily limit of $5. I did not know they are scam. Only know Vick Strizeus is advertising with them.
    Does anyone filed successful complain with PayPal?

    Hi everyone,
    Clicksor is undeniably one of the Worse advertising company. Last year, I signed up for a Publisher account 6 months later I still didn't get paid for the ads that were running on my website' I deleted the plugin, but the intrusive ads and scrips are still popping up. I sent them numerous messages through Facebook, and they always respond with the same proverbial excuses. The ads are annoying...I am getting ready to get a third party involve.

    Thank you for reading my mini complaint

    Clicksor has malware issues, as I know. Summing all reviews here, it's a good idea to look for alternatives. Kontera, I think, would suit the best.

    they have malware & charge advertiser alot ..

    they buy shady traffic with bots to increase the views ... and use ptp sites ..

    when i ask them in support they don't take any action & just suspend my account

    and i heard many similar horror story from

    definitely not worth the money ...
