Angry Warning! Beware of NoMoreHits.com - it's a **** .

Beware of www.nomorehits.com
Here is how it works.
You set your start page to an address that they give you.
Every time your start page opens, it shows somebody's web page along with one of there pay ad banners and instructs you to wait for credit. After about 20 seconds, it shows a 2nd pay ad banner and then tells you that you have received credit.
So for every credit that you earn, they get 2 banner exposures.
For every 2 credits, you are supposed to get 1 visit to you web page.
The adverage pay per exposure ad banner pays out $2.00 per 1,000 ad exposures.
Yesterday, I racked up 500 credits.
That means that they received 1,000 ad banner exposures or $2.00.
I only got 5 visits to my web page!
To sum it up, they got $2.00 and I got 5 hits on my web page.
And if that's not bad enough, they also have a section where you can pay $40.00 to receive 1,000 credits.
They also offer an insentive to refer other customers which is really just a piramid type **** .
STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!

While I'm not doubting your claims, this statement may indicate the problem:

If the program only counts uniques within a certain time period (which is likely), refreshing your start page 500 times would very likely earn you only a few credits.

Anyway, this doesn't sound particularly productive in any case. Have you looked into standard banner exchanges or popup exchanges? They can provide your site with far more exposure (for far less effort) than the system you outlined above.

Thanks!

Isn't their URL alittle ironic?

Well anyway, I doubt this thread will survive. It really belongs in Web Promotion since it is a form of Link Exchange where you're paid in visitors rather than dollars.

I did receive 500 credits.

It goes by how many time you go to your own start page. (the home page when you start your browser)

And it does seem to be time sensitive. 500 credits per 24 hours. (I think?)

It was FREE so I decided to test it's limits.

I do know that there are better ways of getting hits.

I found this company on the mp3.com message board. There are alot of musicians who are falling for this. Mp3.com has a pay per play program where the bands can earn money by getting people to listen to their music.
So, bands want to get hits to make money and also to help them climb up the charts.
