Ad:Dynamo - Pay per click program review - Adsense Alternative


There are lots of pay-per-click programs out there, with all offering the best deal making you and most money. Just how good are these pay-per-click programs though? I have searched over the internet numerous times and can now give a review of the pay per click program Ad:Dynamo.

This article has been updated since first published (check bottom)
Firstly, let me tell you in short term how bad my experience with pay per click programs have been. Banned from Adsense and still haven't really found a replacement. As I live in the UK, I want my payments in British Sterling, not US dollars like most PPC programs.

I first started a website off that was a complete failure: I copied all posts and articles from other websites and put them on mine. This does not work for PPC programs as the ad companies know you have copied the content and find it more difficult to produce contextual advertising which is ads that are related to the content.

Now, because Ad:Dynamo pays users via cheque or direct debit, it was perfect for me. It has a wide range of sizes for the adverts making them fit exactly where you want. A good example is the advert in this post. Like adsense, it has customizable colours with no limit on what shade you want.

Now, there's the money side to Ad:Dynamo. Like with any PPC program, there are advertisers that pay pennies for a click on their ad and others that pay loads for a click on their ad. My clicks value range from 2p-58p. You can easier make your ads you show worth more by blocking them from being shown on your blog or website.

Not, only does Ad:Dynamo provide a publisher account, it also gives you an advertiser account, so if you ever want to advertise your website, you can too.

Overall, I have found Ad:Dynamo to be very good at being a adsense alternative and PPC program. It's the only PPC program I know that does direct debit and has as much customization as Google adsense. Plus, it can earn you some serious money! For more information on Ad:Dynamo, check out their homepage.

Update
Since writing this, Ad Dynamo in my eyes have gone downhill quite a lot. I was surprised by the amount of comments I got on this post on how Ad Dynamo isn't as good as what I thought in the above review it was. It apparently has been scamming many advertisers out of money they rightly have earned which is present from this picture:


In the forum this picture came from, an Ad Dynamo Client Service Representative comes up with the excuse of invalid clicks to explain why clicks have been reversed. However, these earnings have come from a website gaining more than half a million monthly page views. Within days, Ad Dynamo have reversed over $1,000 of earnings for a claim that no advertiser can argue with as we as advertisers have no evidence, no proof these clicks are valid or invalid. I think it's disgraceful that Ad Dynamo is acting in this way, just like a bully.

  1. I am in the Uk and placed Ad Dynamo on all pages but there are no advertisers!!!!! I have now switched back to adsense as they let me open a new account but have left ad dynamo running on a couple of pages to see what develops. but there are still no advertisers. My site is http://freestuffshutlebus.freeiz.com and you can see a sample of the page I have left running at http://freestuffshuttlebus.freeiz.com/privacy.html Anyone any ideas why there are no advertisers as when I had these ads placed in my main pages the site looked crap with just white spaces.

  2. The main problem is that because Ad Dynamo are EXTREMELY late in entering the PPC market, everyone is already using a PPC service with the obvious being Adsense. People may have tried Ad Dynamo temporary but most people would have found CPC to be low and no advertisers because it is so new. Therefore, everyone will still use Google Adsense.

  3. What I know about ad dynamo is that it is experiencing the pain of growth. From what I've gathered so far, the owner is really honest and will get there some day. My advice is: Let's all support him by placing the ads, then the money will come. If you need an additional way to make money check out here: smartcashsystem247.blogspot.com

  4. I agree Ad dynamo are suffering from the pain of growth but at least they are growing. They will get there in time, just as time goes, more people will sign up with them, then Ad Dynamo will become ever increasingly competitive to the likes of Adsense. The problem is while Ad Dynamo are growing, so are Adsense too...

  8. I could also say after having tried using them for the second time, the adverts are not related and have an extremely low CPC. However, I think stealing money is far more serious. I hope people read this article and comments so they know the true side to Ad Dynamo.

    1. Yeah that is a problem in general with Ad Dynamo and these adverts pay out in pennies. This may be because of the content on your website because if Ad dynamo finds it difficult to target adverts to specific content, it will end up with quite irrelevant adverts being shown. The biggest problem though is that Ad Dynamo have just not got enough advertisers bidding for keywords.

    2. From my experience when I started newly with Addynamo, I contacted their customer support about my placed ads on sites showing their default ad, and got a reply that my sites are now scanned to delivering ads. That's it and relevant ads starting showing. I wish the could work more on harnessing ads relevance with keywords used.

  19. Its a Big Scam....
    AdDynamo Not pay publisher earning they have provide stupid reason account under investigation etc.

  20. Never bothered.

    (However, these earnings have come from a website gaining more than half a million monthly page views)

    If somebody can make 380.00 usd out of 20k page views, then it is defenetly invalid clicks. (my expereince)

    It works out 17usd per thousand clicks. Atleast when you cheat you should some knowledge how much it cost.
