BannersGoMLM Description

BannersGoMLM is a traffic exchange network in which users receive traffic from banner advertisements run by other participating sites in the network. It also has a MLM (multi-level marketing) downline system which gives you extra impressions for referring other people to the service. Like common MLM structured system, if people in your downline refer members, you get more impressions.

When most people think of multi-level marketing, they immediately become skeptical and suspicious. But when you apply the concept to web traffic, it can be a great way for webmasters and marketers to get additional traffic without spending a ton of money on advertising or taking up their time.

BannersGoMLM Detailed Overview

BannersGoMLM is a service that Internet marketer Mike Glaspie has created. Members will get a 1:1 exchange ratio on the first level (meaning you get an impression for every impression you show on your site). You get extra impressions as you go down the 5 levels. At level 2, you get 10% of the impression and the same amount for each level all the way up to level 5. While 10% is not a lot, if the people you refer start referring other members and so forth then the impressions can really add up.

After signing up, you will be able to design a banner using their banner creation tool then upload it to get started. They also offer a tutorial on designing a good banner. I personally prefer using clean text only banners without any fancy font, colors, or flashy designs. You also get some prewritten ads to promote the service and add people to the downline.

By adding a simple code on your website, you will have set everything up. If you are a webmaster that doesn’t get a lot of traffic, this service will not benefit your much since it is a 1 for 1 exchange. I think this service is also suited more for content sites rather than sales or ecommerce sites so marketers using contextual programs for monetization will see good impressions.

Everything is easy to set up but there is a major flaw. Because you can put the banner anywhere on your site, many users are inclined to place them at the very bottom. When a visitor lands on a site to read some content on the top fold and leaves, it still counts as an impression. There is no rule that forces webmasters to put their banner where it is prominent. However, users that try to cheat the system by having a site filled with banners or using a loading program to falsify impressions are banned.

BannersGoMLM Reputation

Overall, BannersGoMLM works the way it is supposed to but it is not without many serious flaws. There have been reports about impressions not adding up to the downline structure from users. In addition, there is no system in place so you only receive traffic from related sites. You will get exchange impressions with any site on the network regardless of the topic (with the exclusion of porn and scam sites)., leaving you with untargeted traffic.

If the service was based on clicks rather than impressions and similar sites were matched up, I can see it working but obviously this isn’t the case. There are also many complaints about the lack of customer service, and marketers who have bought advertising on the BannersGoMLM have reported a poor return on investment. Based on both user experience and feedback, I would not recommend this service.

Very disappointed

It seems that every time I try one of these traffic promotion sites they always seem to let me down. I came across BannersGoMLM and was interested in their services after viewing their website. After buying their services I decided to go ahead and make a banner and test it out. The banners weren't even appealing, they were all basic graphics and text layouts. After around a week and a half of testing the site to see if my traffic was promoted, it resulted in no excessive traffic to my blog. This left me disappointed and my blog eventually died out with no excessive views from this site. I do not recommend this website for anyone who is trying to get serious views, if your looking for some basic banners, then I guess this is for you.

Lame lame lame lame

I went to this site to get traffic to my blog as I had just started out and was desperate for a way to get hits. I came across this site by another traffic exchange site and thought, "If they are promoting it, there should be SOME positive experience accompanied with it. " I was wrong. Not only is creating a banner too confusing (well, for me), the banner graphics are sort of lame and cheap. I would never get hits with banners like that. I was disappointed. I still managed to create one in the same day and waited for the traffic to come in. The one to one ration is not bad at all, but I still realized that I only got one referral to one of the sites on my blog. Not worth it at all! I stayed here for a week and a half, going on Banners Go MLM everyday and clicking and waiting. I did not get anything out of it.

This did not produce results for me

I signed up with BannersGoMLM a while back hoping to gain more exposure to the new website I had created. First, I liked that the code to add the banners to my site was real easy to put into place. Second, the banners seemed appealing enough to make visitors want to click. Third, the site itself was real easy to navigate and to use.

Now what I didn't like is that with this site I didn't receive much more traffic than what I'm already receiving. I went into my account and noticed that even though my banner impressions were adding up quickly because of the banners I placed on my website, my own site was not receiving traffic. I noticed that my credits had only gone down a handful to say the least. I did not like that this was happening. I feel like this is a program that only wants you to display their ads for them, but is not willing to return the favor.

Right now, I would not recommend this site to get additional exposure to your site. There are many more programs out there that will deliver a lot more. As this site is not bad, it's not great either in terms of traffic to your site. I would look elsewhere.

Don't try it.

I signed up here awhile back when I first made my blog and was desperate for page views.

I thought this would be a good opportunity for me to get that.

I added the banner to my blog and waited for some results.

What I noticed is that I was not receiving many views at all.

I do not recommend this one because I do not feel you can get a good number of page views.

There are tons of other ways to get page views; this wont be one of them.

I Agree With The Reviewer!

Oh yeah, this was a bunch of mess! Granted, I was just starting out when I signed up to this one, but even then I knew this was pure garbage! It's funny how I came to this site through Bravenet, and also saw it advertised on Traffic Swarm, but they just really dropped the ball on this one! Those are pretty good sites!

For one, this site has the cheesiest banners I've ever seen! Ok, so they're free, but come on, put some creativity to it! Then 1 to 1 traffic exchange, are they serious? How about 0 to 0, I got nothing! So this means I must have been the only one on the net who didn't know this thing don't work; I'm still shocked to see the site is still up. I totally forgot about them til I searched the products section here... lol! It's so terrible that Bravenet doesnn't even promote them anymore, and it's their site! But why is still up? Don't waste your time. This is one free site that needs no members!

Pretty Much Dead

I joined this program when it first started. I placed the banner code on my websites and loaded my banners. It worked OK, as far as banner advertising goes. I built up a large number of banner impressions in my account but noticed my own banners were not being shown very much. I stopped displaying the banner code on my websites and kind of forgot about it. Just recently I went back into my account. I still have impressions left, which leads me to believe the program is pretty much dead.

PIE IN THE SKY DOESN'T TASTE VERY GOOD

Mike G's bunch had been pressuring me rather heavily for some weeks ~ constant messages, phone calls. This really sounded - as often said ~ too good to be true! But, well as Mike says, he IS the greatest thing to hit the WEB! So, what? It was said to be FREE (at first) & I grabbed. First thing off, I was in over my head! How could I whip up a banner in the 10 to 15 seconds given to me to set up my ad?? Thinking I could fix things up in the AM (this was Mr. Big, after all!) I contentedly went to bed, 11:30 & up for work at 6. Real quick I hit the internet only to find there was no access to do what I did not have time to finish the night before! Perhaps mine was a unique experience; maybe I just don't know enough. But why did I feel so suckered? I'll never think of MG the same way again.
