Default Ads Clicking>>>real Or Fake????

I have received a mail regarding about clicking an ad. It says that they will pay you $1 per click you've made and you have to make a registration before you can do this.. Is this some kind of a scam or something that I should pay attention too?

I'm not for sure about the peice of mail you were sent,but there are alot of companies that will invite you to put their ad on ur site.Once the ad is uo and someone clicks on it then you will get paid from it.Hope this helps!

This sounds scammy. One company that can put ads on your site and pay you for clicks is Google... and there are other really legitimate companies doing it to. They don't need to send you emails because webmasters come to them. If the email was talking about clicking on other people's ads, they could be trying to get you to help them with click-fraud. Maybe not, but this sounds too good to be true. If you decide to register, make sure they don't ask for anything like credit card numbers or even cell phone number - a lot of these scams make money by billing your credit card or setting up text messaging you end up paying for.

You aren't, because there are not real ones. Anyone paying you to click on ads is junk.

You can make money by having ads on your site (Adsense).

Default Scam-spam

I'd also concur that that is spam mail. Unless you requested information, if you received an email from someone trying to offer you something- especially when it comes to the web and online marketing, chances are they are trying to make money off you. I'd move it to your junk folder and move on!

ad clicking payouts are legit but i havent heard of $1 per click payout. usually they pay as little as 0.01 or 0.02 per click and you cant really profit much from it with all the other terms included.

Default $1 buck? wow where can i find that offer?

Think it's a total scam...There is no way someone would pay you $1 buck to just click on ads...I understand them paying you a $1 if you convert them, but not for just click on ads...yeah like someone else said here average is like maybe .02 per click. However, I know a lot of companies willing to shell out the dough as high as $50 bucks, but again there would have to be conversion... usually high ticket items....debt settlement...etc...Check out click bank...
