FWIW
1. This program is not working for me. I get 20 visitors or so per day to the games. Done this for last 2 months or so. Total earnings to date = $2

2. FWIW I thought I'd share my other comments on this program : they didn't reply to e-mails when I had problems at the start (it took about 4 or 5 e-mails at approximately weekly intervals before I got a response). Supposedly bi-weekly stats e-mails are not always forthcoming.

3. There doesn't appear to be a way to set the minimum check value (or is there - please tell me if you know). You just get a check when you reach $50. This is definitely bad news for those of us outside the U.S.

Maybe it's just me, but I think this program is overrated. If anybody has an ideas on how to make this program work, please let me know. To give you an idea - I am doing substantially better on the banners on my trivia games page than I am on the games themselves.

Yeap, I checked it out before and I'd rate it as pooh pooh. It's one of those programs you join and make a few bucks on, but will never see the money because you drop the ads, therefore, not being able to make the minimum payout.

I can't figure out why Ryan gave it a good rating (unless I'm doing something dumb)

Conversion rate is terrible

I reckon I've had 2000 people _play_ or atleast choose to visit the trivia games page (they have to click on a link to get there).

Approx equivalent
$2/2000 = $0.001 per click
(that's not a typo I mean a tenth of a cent)

I guess the home page link might disappear in my next site up date. Though I'll probably leave the directory there for as long as I have spare disk space.

What's worst about it is I don't even think the games are that great.

Having said that I might keep the games, as my visitors seem to agree and like to sign-up for other banners I put on that page (maybe this is just to get away ???)
