Hey guys. Exoclick just stole my money and gave the shaft. I want to warn anyone who is thinking about using them.

Without dropping any links or tooting my horn, I'll give you the rundown on my site:

* site is 10 years old
* site is 47% organic G/B/Y search but mostly Google
*53% return traffic
*made $xx,xxx.00 dollars so far this year from just one of my other ad networks
* in 10 years I have never been banned from any network (EVER).

I've used Exoclick in the past for 1 or 2 ads and have made hundreds of dollars with them (never a problem).
Haven't used them in about a year and decided to replace one of my ad spaces with their ads.

in about 24hours I sent them roughly 50k impressions and about 80-90 clicks earning about $125.00 then boom! $75 vanishes.

I contacted them about it and this is what I got 2 minutes later:

Am I missing something here? I send you 50K impressions, generate $125.00 from focused top tier traffic and you pull this?

    I try to be fair in all of my dealings. With that said, here is the most recent update on my issue with Exoclick. I want to tell the whole story and not some pissed off rant. I run a business and understand fully what reputations are about.

    I got an email this morning telling me that a mistake was made in regards to locking down my account:::

    Ok Great. The account is back up and the funds are available. But, keeping with fairness, I've decided that I will update this thread if anything new pops up.
    My trust-o-meter is rather low right now.

    Why don't you run the traffic to certainly affiliate offer, I guess you might benefit more than selling traffic?

      I also send traffic to affiliate offers. I try not to put too many eggs in one basket. Sometimes 40k impressions with pay beats 500 uniques @ $0.
      Split the aces and eights.
