    Just more misleading bullshit that proves nothing. To click your ten ads a day you need to click through at least 36 pages. If you are a keen mapper running ads on the traffic exchange and checking other things on the site you could easily click through hundreds of pages. 80 million views a month is only proof that you have lots of gullible members. Not proof of legitimacy or external revenue

    and then there are the bots that tumble through.


    Bot Traffic: Are Your Visitors Using You?


    By George Weiner - March 2, 2015

    “The monthly users are up this year. We did it!” Many nonprofit managers rely on web data to inform and deliver their services, as well as tell the story of organizational impact. Nonprofit websites are used for impact in multiple ways — to increase resource downloads, new registrations/sign-ups, and of course, monthly users.

    What if it turned out that these users were actually bots? Would the “impact” still feel the same? In 2014, bot traffic reached a new all time high of 56% of all Internet traffic (Incapsula Bot Traffic Report, 2014 bit.ly/NPT-botreport). Most of this traffic is filtered out by analytics platforms like Google Analytics, but there is still a certain percentage of bots that fool analytics. Over the coming years, we will need to share lanes on the information highway with an increasing numbers of bots.

    Does anyone else see the irony of a company claiming to be "The next Google" using Google Analytics to attempt to prove they are legitimate? Ask the folks at Coke to direct you to the Pepsi vending machine. As was pointed out, 80 million Pageviews is meaningless if for no other reason than the whole narrative of this scam is get rich clicking ads. Would hope the numpties at least comply with that decree!


    Let's do something for the folks looking to advertise their business by way of comparison. ET started http://www.realscam.com/f10/team-beachbody-4247/ just a few days ago. Us spent a few hours looking into BeachBody, and had a few things to say mouthy lil tyke I am.

    Now have targeted ads for, oh the suspense must be killing you...

    Sponsored Ads.JPG

    That was on Facebook, get them on Youtube and several other sites I visit. Not only that, get them for their offshoot products like P90X. After just a few hours of poking the web.

    By contrast, this thread was started 09/18/2014 and there's mouthy lil me page one http://www.realscam.com/search.php?searchid=45479 I couldn't say how much time I have spent looking at MAP, a few hours more than BeachBody a safe bet.

    NEVER ONCE have I seen a pop up ad for My Advertising Pays!!! MORE importantly have NEVER seen an ad from one of their customers like 4 Corners Alliance. Keeping in mind, I look at a lot of scam stuff so most of what I get is "business opportunity" type ads. Just visited TARA TALKS: MyAdvertising Pays SCAM page 2 and SPECIAL REPORT: MyAdvertisingPays, Zeek Figures Sued In TelexFree Class Action; AdSurfDaily And Zeek Cases Cited Repeatedly; Alleged 'Private Jet' Also Referenced In 200-Page Complaint - PatrickPretty.com

    Two ads for Brother printers back to back.

    2 sites.JPG

    AMAZING, how Google knew to share with their advertisers I was hunting a printer yet MPS Anlytics blind to my existence?

    Oh, look. They've just got their pipes unblocked, and now there are worries about VX Gateway charges annd not being "compliant" by showing earnings.......

    The "oops!" is mine. Do you think they are referring to a scheme called Vemma, which has just gone down - and been declared a ponzi?

    And there's more. Because of the upcoming August Bank Holiday, payments will be closed over the weekeing - and not reopen until Tuesday morning.

    Bummer, eh?

    Maps 757 Aug 15.jpg

    Except.......according to this: Office Holidays | A calendar of public and bank holidays around the world Monday 31st August is only a Bank Holiday in the UK. Ok, so it's Kazakhstan's Constitution Day, but I'm not sure that many Kazakhs are Mappers. And isn't VX Gateway in Venuzuela os somewhere? That hasn't got a Bank Holiday on Monday, has it?

    Course, the ladies with laptops might want to go to the seaside and have a picnic on Monday, or go shopping for more cushions for the sofa, so that might be the reason for non payments.

    Why should Mappers worry about "people watching" them? Or their posts going on blogs? It's all publicity, isn't that what they want? To sell their opportunity?

    the sticky wicket is that anyone that truly wants to 'advertise' will see there is no advertising and that the conversation immediately went to income anyway.
    I harken back to one of the other fundamental questions......why aren't huge mass merchants being sold 'advertising' and then, why wouldn't they just join since they owe it to their stockholders to make as much money as possible?

    This closure for a Uk bank holiday is a complete red herring IMHO.

    A more significant bank holiday would have been 15th August - Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is observed in Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Poland, Malta, Luxembourg, parts of Germany and Switzerland, and several South American countries. But not the UK. But the Mappers missed that one entirely. And in any case, if MAPs is an American scheme, founded by an American (Mike Deese) European Bank Holidays should have no effect.

    Which makes me wonder if MAPs is a lot more UK based than it lets on, and that the Booths (and one or two sidekicks) are really running the show.

    There are more Mappers in Germany than the UK, aren't there? I bet they aren't too happy that payments (and presumably what passes for support) will be closed for 3 days for a Uk bank holiday.

    There's a lot of worry about screenshots of "earnings" going about. And some of them seem to have heard about Vemma - not before time - and that has worried them too.

    GOOD!

    Over on Oz's Behind MLM site, I found this:

    FTC issue warning to MLM opportunities similar to Vemma

    Vemma Aug 15.jpg

    I find it very interesting when thinking about MAPs. The ASA have already found that Mr Stepsys's claims of very high earnings could not be substantiated. The Mappers are starting to get panicked now about all the focus on referrals - which no-one can deny there has been - and are flapping about shrieking that they are an "advertising business" really. They've also shared and promoted videos in order to recruit more people - thus arguably providing others with the "means and instrumentalities" as Lesley Flair put it. (Lesley Flair is a senior attorney with the FTC)

    Will be so, so interesting to watch over the next few days/weeks/months......
