    Before when i was a student i joined hundreds of ptc sites just to earn money. Unfortunately most of them are scams. I felt bad about that,after my hard work i get nothing... zero.

    those GPT programs mostly are scam, especially get paid to click. I will suggest you get some proper task or work as freelancer if you have some skill.

    PTCs are a waste of time period. Just picture it in your head; earning .04cents a DAY. How much is that worth? Barely anything...I quit ptcs a while ago because I realized I was being scammed. From that I lost about $50.

    Most GPTs are scams. Theypay at first but not after the first few cashouts.
    Pretty big waste of time.

    I have tried them before but I only end up earning $15 for 6 months.

    They are not, in my opinion. They try on the start. But of course, who would pay just to get visits on your sites without even having a single sale?

    And that's the key to PTC's. The PTC's aren't the ones scamming you, it's the sites that are being advertised on it... The site is acting as the middleman, but the sites advertised on the PTC aren't paying up meaning the PTC won't pay you. Even the ones that do pay are a useless waste of time... You can earn a maximum of about $3-$4 per month, silly money.

    I'm guessing pay to click, but I don't feel like googling it so someone correct me if I'm wrong. Also, I wouldn't really bother doing anything like that. It's a waste of time mostly and you get nothing out of it.

    As An Alien said PTC stands for Paid to Click. These are sites that act as middlemen between advertisers and viewers of those ads. The PTC site get paid for displaying ads on their site, they then share a proportion of this payment with their members who click on the ads.

    Fergal, if I remember correctly, this type of discussion is not allowed for sites displaying Adsense ads?
    I remember we locked one similar discussion before.
