LinkBucks Description

Linkbucks is a very unique advertising membership program created by internet marketer Charles Major that allows people to modify their own links so that they can earn ad revenue from them. This program works on the pay-per-click system, working with advertisers to get their ads seen in a variety of places on the internet.

LinkBucks Detailed Overview

Linkbucks uses a pretty innovative idea for its advertising program, although at first it can be a little confusing trying to figure it all out. Though some more internet and script-savvy people might not have a problem understanding it, beginners may have a lot more difficulty.

When you get past the Linkbucks tech-speak, it’s really fairly simple. As a blogger or a forum poster, you often have links in your signature that lead people to your website. As a website owner, you often put links on your site to other websites, perhaps if you’re trading links or linking to an affiliate website.

When you become a member of Linkbucks, you can submit these links to their program, and they will modify them with code, then you put the modified links on your website, blog, or in your signature. When people click on your links, they will still go where you want them to, but because of the added code, they’ll see an intermission ad for a few seconds first, or they’ll see a framed banner on the top of your destination page.

When someone clicks on your specially coded Linkbucks link, you earn money. You don’t get a lot for one click, but if you get a lot of clicks, your earnings can add up. The advertiser gets what they want, people are still linking to where you want them to go, and you’re making some extra money all at the same time.

Note:  If you're on IM Report Card because you're looking for a way to make money online, then you should check out our top recommendation.  It's the best method we've found that anyone can use to earn income online.  Click here to learn more!

LinkBucks Reputation

Feedback on Linkbucks is overwhelmingly positive. Though nobody is claiming to make a lot of money through the program, nobody really expects to. What members do report is that they are always paid on time, that the coded links never cause them any trouble, and that support is always quick and helpful when needed.

Nice but not easy

I tried Linkbucks a long time ago. The idea was interesting, being paid to promote links we can create... But it's not easy to create links that will appeal to people. And we need a huge traffic to earn something. So I gave up for a while. Then I started a small blog, which began to grow. Now I have the traffic I need to use linkbucks and I make between 6-13$ a day with linkbucks. It's easy cash but you might want to use other techniques at the same time if you want to live off of your blog.

Pretty good to make a little money

I started with linkbucks two years ago. I tried to publish my links everywhere I could but it didn't work out. Linkbucks can get you money but only if you use porn pictures. I used the forum and gallery dump methods along with shared images and deposit files and I was able to earn almost 10$ a day. But it was time consuming and I found better ways to make money. I recommend it for beginners and people who want to make a little money from time to time.

My experiance

Well I tried this program out and personally I found that they didn't pay out right away. It took me a while to get a hold of them and after about a month of hassling them I finally got my money. Though the money I got was the proper amount for how much traffic I sent them, so that part was good, but getting the money was difficult.

Linkbucks is ok but SkyZop is better

I have had experience with Linkbucks and have received earnings from them on average of $5 dollars per month. Then I realized the major drawback with the Linkbucks system. When you create links, there is no immediate way to promote them on Twitter, Myspace, Facebook etc. If you want to post your links, you have to do it the long hard manual way.

I just found skyzop.com a month ago, and have been using them instead. As soon as you create links you get the option to automatically post the link on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, or even email the link to people, increasing the chances of higher earnings. It's working for me, and I have since switched all of my links over to Skyzop.

Legit, useful, but SLOW!

Hi, I joined LinkBucks a while ago. It's a unique, useful site for webmasters to make money of people clicking links on their sites. This can make like 30 cents per 1k hits, which can be very slow to reach the 5$ payout.

However you can make easy money with LinkBucks if you don't have a site too. I tried this method. I pasted my link all around popular sites, and got great amount of traffic, however my earnings were very low. (It might be my tier, because it says, it normally pays 1$ per like 2000 hits) I can continue advertising, but it's still VERY SLOW!

Another useful thing is that, it makes short alias URLs for your links and you can use this like TinyURL to shorten your long URLs (No ADs, unpaid link).

Great site to use!

Before I joined this website 5 months ago I was using a free domain name and people thought my website was not legitimate, so I asked my friend how he pays for his domain name and he told me about LinkBucks and quickly explained to me all the basic info I needed to get started. Now I send my LinkBucks domain in all of my emails and in my blog posts, and it surely pays off.

I've cashed out 3 times now which has paid for my domain name for 2 years, it's a great website and most importantly easy to use.

One word - waste of time

When I first hear about linkbucks, people said it was great. I tried it and at first it was great, but it slowly died out. It took me around 5 months to get the minimum payout $5. Because linkbucks is well known to most people, when they see your link they know you will make money if they click on it, which is why they don't click your links. More importantly, most high-traffic forums banned linkbucks links, so as of today, it is pretty hard to make decent amount of money from linkbucks. So if you don't want to spend a lot of time searching forums and posting, I suggest you don't even start.

Trusted service, but slow

From the experiences that I have to make some money with LinkBucks you must have a lot of great patience. I used this service from about 6 months ago and so far I have earned about $ 300. I have 11 referrals, but I earned 1$ from them.

The service is easy to use but takes some time and work. It took me some time to learn how to create my own links but then working with them is quite easy. Moreover, I can use different techniques for making money but I have to reiterate that it takes me a long time. I use LinkBucks mostly for my blogs and find that the profit is not too much but is satisfactory. I have not had a problem with payments on their part.

Make Money With Neobux

 
 
 
Not for everyone

Linkbucks is a good money making solution. I am a blogger and I use it everyday. I cashed out about 4 times already, the payments were on time like they said. I had a conversation with the admin. He is very friendly and helped me out numerous times. However, their PPV rates are low for some users who aren't that popular. I do not recommend this to users who could not get about 100 clicks a day to one link. I will continue using this service, as I have not found any other service like this with a better PPV rate.

Linbucks good

I love their layout & the website is easy to use. The admin is nice & is always ready to help those who need it. They also pay twice a month. This website is legit & well worth your time. I have been paid over 16 dollars on the site in one month & all I had to do was sit back & let the funds come in. This is a great site to make easy funds with. If you are in to blogging or online marketing you can make some nice funds with this program.

This website is legit & well worth your time.

Achieved great results

I joined LinkBucks around four months ago and the results I achieved were not bad. I was able to get two cashouts and I am glad I tried the site despite of the small earnings I've made. Creating different links is a straight forward process and in a short amount of time you can create hundreds of links directing to your site. For people using advertisement platforms like me, this proved to be a useful thing since it is better having more than one link. It takes tons of time to earn money through the links you've made. For me earning at LinkBucks is not a priority and the advertising side of the site is the thing I am more interested in. The concept really has a lot of potential. Thanks to the site I got a lot of new sign-ups and also increased sales with around five percent which is not a bad result actually. If you put some effort then you can definitely make some effective promotions. Overall I would recommend trying the site out since in my case at least it worked perfectly.

Works, But Takes Forever

I would not recommend this service to anyone. I used it to try and make money from links posted on my blog and on various forums. But after using the service for 18 months I had only made five dollars. The service pays out and works, but it takes a very long time to make any amount of money using it. There are more efficient ways you could be spending your time other than using linkbucks. I give this site a C because even though it works, I cannot recommend it as it simply takes too long to make any money.

Not really enough money to spend

You shouldn't expect to make much on here but a couple of cents. The amount of clicks it takes to even make a couple hundred dollars a month is just too much to even be worth it. Also another problem is the constant popups and advertisements they make the "clickers" go through may discourage them from clicking the links or going through with them. I don't get several thousand hits a day to a website so this did not work out for me and I discontinued using it.

Not Even Worth the Effort

This website is not even worth the effort.

First of all, they only pay about . 01 cent per click sometimes less. I started trying this and after two weeks, even with many people clicking on it, it only gets somewhat near 50 cents. I would never recommend this site for anyone because they don't pay high and there is a forty click limit per day, so If you get traffic that has over one hundred people, this site is worthless for you. You need so many clicks just to get one dollar and there are better websites out there right now. I would only use this site if you had a lot of free time on your hands, if you do not then please do not use this website.

Hard Way Of Making Money

Earning with linkbucks is very slow and time consuming. They pay a very small amount for your hard work. Only $1 for 2000 clicks. About 7 months ago I joined linkbucks and started posting my links to my blog and also to forums like ND-warez and 3 others. But after 1 month I was hardly able to make about $15 which is not enough. Still I'm posting my links because it is a little source of income for me. If you have extra time then you can manage, but keep in mind that you are not going to make huge amount of money with linkbucks. It can just fulfill your small needs.

Good Way to Earn a Few Pennies

LinkBucks is a great site for earning a few extra dollars, but that's about it. Unless you have hundreds of thousands of people clicking on your LinkBucks links, then you aren't going to be earning big bucks any time soon. They pay less than a penny per click so it really is difficult for the average internet user to make any real money with them. After using the site for more than a year I haven't even earned enough to reach the $5 cash out, so I eventually gave up on Linkbucks. They do have a few advertisement options and some pay more than others, such as the intermission ads, which appear before the site you want your LinkBucks link to direct to, which I would suggest in order to maximize earnings. But I do find their ads to be a little intrusive as they consume the whole page and many people clicking on your links might simply exit the page because of the ads before even seeing your site, which is what I have done.

Awesome Service!

As you may all know, linkbucks is a pay per click service, which pays you every time a user clicks on a linkbucks generated link. Roughly $1 per 2000 clicks. For me linkbucks has been a great service, so far I have added 70 referrals to my account, which gets me $2 per day, with me doing absolutely nothing ( That is $60 per month ). To make great income with linkbucks, you should mainly target sites which have a substantial number of views daily. This is the key to scoring users to click on your links. Plus as a bonus you need to provide the right content that link will redirect to, so that it reaches the User's intent.

Not even worth your time

I tried this about three weeks ago because I thought it was easy money. But I was wrong! After about 2 weeks you would think after putting it all over your website it would get you a lot of money but your wrong it got me like 50 cents. I don't recommend this for anyone at all. the pros of this product is that they of course give you money for just clicking, but the cons are that you need a whole lot of clicking to get a whole lot of money, so it's ultimately not good. So in my opinion, the cons beat the pros and I don't recommend this for anyone unless you have a whole lot of free time in your agenda.

Not good at all!

Poor payment, unless you have a ridiculous amount of referrals or a huge website and are prepared for your visitors to be annoyed by countless banners and 15 second pop-ups, I do not recommend this site. I tried this site for a little extra money but found it useless. Most forums have recognized this site and have banned linkbucks advertising so renders you unable to make enough money and could get you a nice little ban from a community.

However, payment is made on time and is not a scam in anyway. Instant payments per links occur and you can monitor the traffic through links to see which ones are more active.

Conclusion: I would not recommend this site as it does not provide a lot of money and provides too much hassle to your visitors who just want to browse around without annoying pop-ups or ads.

Many Links needed for Bucks

LinkBucks is a great site for page referrer hiding, and can be good as a source of income if you either have many links or many visitors. Personally, I have made around 35 cents in almost a year with this service. However, I do not do any spamming or advertising of the links. LinkBucks also has a forum for it's members where you may be able to learn better tips if you want to make money with the service.

Great service

Words cannot express how easy it is to earn money. I've had a great time using linkbucks on my blog links. I was earning upwards of $13 in a week, simply by replacing my old links with linkbucks redirecting links. Easiest money you will ever make doing close to nothing on your part. Recommended to anyone who has their own website or posts links a lot.

Slower than a speeding snail

I started using LinkBucks last year after seeing a promo in one of the exchanges. I was really impressed until after joining I saw the number of clicks my links would have to get to make a half way decent amount of money, over 1,000 clicks. Unless you have a site or your link is very popular, you'll be waiting a very very long time to make a $1. After 8 months, I've only earned 2 cents. But if you want to shorten your url and be able to keep track of the url you shortened, it's pretty good.

How Can You Argue with Zero Cost?

Lame. Too hard. Not worth it

You get paid like a thousandth of a penny for a click. It'll take you about 012938402938429034 clicks to even get a few bucks. Unless you want to waste your life, DO NOT, DO NOT, use this site.

I used it for a year and earned 2 dollars. Why do people take time to do this. IDK, you could be using other sites and making 200x the amount you would make with the time you would spend doing linkbucks.

IMO this site fails.

Only if you get a lot of visitors and got the time

I came across this site a lot when visiting different forums. Later I checked this site out about what it was and what it does and I found out it gives you money for redirecting people to another link.

I gave it a try and found out that you can best use this service when you have a lot of viewers to your website or forums.

The amount of money you receive when people click on the link is really low.

After a few months I got paid out about ~20 USD and was kinda disappointed because I get a lot of traffic and they click a lot on those links.

This is only useful when you get A LOT of traffic to your site and got the time to convert those links.

Bad Payments and Requires a lot of traffic!

OK,

I've been signed up on linkbucks for about 2 months and thought it was good at first.

I found that the best way for me to produce traffic was to sign up to a warez forum and link your download links through linkbucks.

of course if you got a download that has a real high demand your gonna get a fair amount of traffic so this worked good for me.

I made about $10 in the 2 months I was using linkbucks but when it came to payments I had to wait for 2 weeks.

which lead me to think it's a scam...

But I got payment in the end, wasn't totally worth it because I got told off a few times on forums because of the linkbucks link...

Overall... I personally I don't think linkbucks is worth the time and hassle.

Only work with social media sites

Linkbuck is a good program to earn with your links. I have applied link buck with my twitter and face-book account through some article promotion and the result was quite good. But when I apply it with my own blog then I found the visitors are jumping from my blog. Any one have only some premium content can use this program to earn more with his site where the visitors will wait to see the content. Other wise it will only work with social-media sites to earn some lazy bucks.

It's a complex process to use

Linkbucks at first appeared to be a great way to make some money but after a few months I had made around two cents, an unsatisfactory amount. During the few months I was creating and posting the links on as many areas as I could to try to get as many clicks as I could with no success. The system Linkbucks works on is not working well because the links you put out are able to be skipped so people tend to ignore them. If you have a high traffic website using the links that you create may be more successful but with the rate of $002 a click you would need high traffic. In my final remarks I must say the idea that Linkbucks has seems like it could be successful but needs more time. Remember though the program is still in it's beta so there may be more to come.

Only use this if you have a lot of traffic

This site is not one you should use if you're looking to make a lot of money because you will need a lot of traffic. I have gotten about $2 spending tons of time into that website. Still, even if you do get a lot of traffic this website will not be paying you what you're site is worth when you can be making way more money using services like ad-sense which pay very well and don't annoy the user clicking the links because of all the pop-ups. So when it comes down to it, do not use this service because they'll be making more money. It drives away valuable traffic, and you won't get disappointed when you see your mere . 20 cents go up.

Miserable Payments

The point of Linkbucks is that when people click on your link, you get money. The only problem with that is that it is pathetic money. If you display a banner at the top of your blog/website you earn something around $0002 with every click. If you choose for the pop-up method on your website, you can earn perhaps a little bit more than that. This means that you need at least several thousands of visits to your website or that many people clicking that link. If you have a good traffic website, that is great. But after three months or so I just got over a dollar, so I immediately gave up. Bad experience for me.

Good but not perfect

I've been using LinkBucks for a while now and while it is easy to use and works well it's still hard to earn with it. You must have a really good website or some other ways to make people click your links.

I've been using it to earn some extra every time I need to post a link, but so far I haven't been able to earn too much.

However like I said before, if you have a good website or other means to get lot of clicks then it really is trustworthy and can make you some nice extra income.

Don't try this!

I have been using linkbucks a year or two years. At first I thought that it was a great way to make money.

All you do is just convert the url link that you have in to the linkbucks url converter tools until you'll get the converted link. Then you can post your links into any sites or forums so that it can be clicked by people, and you'll get your cash.

But the fact is that the only room where people usually place their links is in forums. I used to place my links in some several forums, but the fact is that almost all forums don't allow links from linkbucks, so in other words, is that linkbucks is banned from almost all forum sites!

So, I just wanna share this to you, don't you ever try this linkbucks service! It's a waste of time..

LinkBucks waste of time?

LinkBucks is a site that advertises your link and if other people click on it you will receive cash. On my experience with it I would not recommend it to others as I have advertised my link for a month and only received 7$ which is nothing.

But don't take me wrong it could be profitable if you had a lot of people everyday clicking on you links, but it would take hard work also I think LinkBucks need to change a few things in there site.

So for that I grade this a D.

Been a member for a while

I have actually been on linkbucks for a while now. I have not actually got paid yet from the site, but I can say that I am glad that I found it. One of the best things I like about it is that you are able to make hundreds of different links that can point to the same website. This can be very useful for doing advertising on craigslist and on vinefire type of sites. This way you can change the add around a little then make a new link and put it in the ad. This way you can post multiple times on craigslist if you want. Another great feature of course is being able to get paid from people clicking on your links too. You will not be getting rich from it but it is extra free money that can be made for pretty much just doing your regular advertising. If you wanting to join linkbucks just for the money aspect then I would say not to. But if you want to join it because it gives you ways to have multiple links and ways to advertise then I would say go for it.

Their AD filter does not work

I had joined linkbucks some months back. And I have never cashed out even though the minimum payout was $5 when I joined. I had also joined some other referral programs. And I used linkbucks for posting those referral url's. So, in a way, I thought I was getting double advantage.

But they have this parameter called 'performance score'. If all the traffic is from US IP's, then you will get a 100% performance score. But mine was only 38%. Surely, we cannot control the traffic. Any internet marketer will wish to have international traffic. This was one drawback I found out.

The second one and the worst is that, their AD filter does not work. When we create a link using linkbucks, they ask whether or not adult content is to be shown in the ads that appear in the thin top banner. Even if I enter 'no', the ads still displayed profane and porn content. I didn't find it until one day I clicked my own link. I was shocked to see the adult ads which affected the reputation of my web content. Thereafter, I never used linkbucks and deleted all existing links. Since it was only the beginning, fortunately I didn't lose much traffic. I don't know whether they have sorted out this now, but I don't want to take risk once more. I would not recommend linkbucks. There are many other alternates.

But, it is true that they make payments regularly. In that case, they are fully reliable. I have heard words from my friends that they received payment from linkbucks.

Not for everyone

It's a good service but if you have a blog or place that isn't popular or have a hard time promoting your links, you won't make a lot of money, it's all about promoting and get your site out there! But I would recommend it to someone who isn't new to blogging or site management.

My personal experience with this wasn't all that great because I am a bit inexperienced and my blog is fairly new but I am confident once I get better everything will be running smoothly.

Overall my payout has been 20 but that's after two months, those results aren't typical.

One of Many

For the past few months I have spent as much time as possible online, trying to make a few bucks. I have experienced sites that went from this is too easy to be real, to outright scammers. This site falls somewhere in the middle. I never got the feeling it was a scam, and I was paid, but the effort required would have been much better spent doing something else. The payout is just too low to be worth the time required. As others have already commented, a very large/popular site might generate reasonable revenue with this, but if your site is on that level, you probably have better advertising options available.

Not Very Good But It Works

I tried this site out. It was pretty hard for making money since not many people went on these links. The ads were not that distracting but their were some that just made me really mad and I couldn't even close it or go to my destination. I would give this site an overall C since it works and I got paid $10.

This is how it works, you make the links, and send it to people and if they go on it and do the ads they will get paid. You may think it's easy but it's not that easy. You will need a lot of time to do this so that’s why I gave this site a C.

Eh... its ok

Linkbucks is okay in my opinion but it requires time and patience. I tried linkbucks for awhile and it takes a long time to get some decent money. I posted my links everywhere I could think of and in the end made a few dollars. I don't think linkbucks is worth it since it takes forever to get some money, but if your one of those really calm and patient people I guess it could work out for you. Linkbucks would probably work out if you have a lot of traffic on your website but don't expect to earn a great amount of money. Linkbucks isn't for everyone, but it can earn you some cash if you could wait long enough.

LinkBucks - Underwearcash

The reason I gave LinkBucks a Pretty Good rating because the amount of money that you earn from LinkBuck is not a lot. Therefore, it required a lot of time and effort to even earn one dollar.

The problem about LinkBuck is that it is very difficult to get people to click on your links because most people already know that I am making money from people clicking on my links. I've been using tricks to make people click, but that is not always the best way due to the lack of resources I have.

Furthermore, I can't put LinkBuck links anywhere in forums because they don't allow them anymore, so right now the ways to utilize the LinkBuck links are very limited.

Anyways, this site is still some ways to earn pocket change if you get bored of sitting in front of your computer doing nothing and you'll like to do some LinkBuck job to get some money to add to your paypal account.

My total amount I earned from LinkBuck is $4, so it is not too much compared to other sites I do online.

Great way to add to your online money making list. Very trusted site.

LinkBucks service sucks

It took me 4 weeks to reach the minimum payout of $5. I had to sit in front of my computer all day, pasting LinkBucks links to forums, chats rooms and inviting friends to visit my site and blogs, and yet, could not make any good money from this service. Compare to the money I made from other Ads, like Google Ads.

LinkBucks, it’s really waste of time and energy because you will receive a small amount of a cent for each link view from a unique viewer.

They paid me $5, but it took me 4 weeks to earn that. It pays, but demands hard work. It’s not an easy way to make money.

But, if you have a site with millions of customers visiting daily. It could earn you some good money, but with my experience, I will not recommend this service to anyone.

It does not comply with 20/80 rule

I always believe that as an IM-er one must follow the famous 80-20 rule, that is: for 20% of there should be an 80% revenue (in marketing terms). LinkBucks is exactly the opposite, if not even worse.

Now don't take me wrong, they are not spammy, or a scam in anyway. It is a decent and legitimate business, but executed in a very lame way. While a person with unlimited amount of time at hand would be able to make some money with this, for most of us who are looking for more effective ways to make money online, this is just a waste of time. In addition to that, Linkbucks system could seriously mess up your stats and traffic.

There are several points here that make Linkbucks a service to avoid:

1. It is very annoying for your clients, and they lose interest in returning to your site.

2. Since people are bored with waiting, they click away before you get a quality link (no one wants to wait 15sec just to be redirected, if they have a chance to click and terminate the waiting)

3. When you do get paid, it is a truly miserable amount.

4. It will take you high amounts of traffic, lots of time investment (to build links) and a great deal of patience to get a very modest amount of coin out of this. (in case you have this kind of patience, time and stamina, you'd be better off building backlinks to your own sites. )

I think their idea is good, but in order to make this truly attractive service for all, interesting and profitable, they'll need to remodel their way of thinking entirely.

Until that day, I'd do something with better ROI.

Linkbucks is just fine

I started using LinkBucks a month ago for linking MP3s on YouTube and download links on various forums. They make it really easy to add links, as well as customize the links you make (Single/Multiple Links, Full Page Scripts with various alias urls and ads).

Although they make it very easy to add links, for me, making a few penny's on LinkBucks is a good day. I started using LinkBucks at the end of December 2009, and now in almost a month I have only made about 40 cents. Linkbucks won't get you rich, but if you are linking to other moneymaking opportunities, it is just the icing on the cake.

Waste of Time

This is basically a full time job I think. I have spent hours after hours on here and have not earned anything. If you spent 8 hours a day everyday well then you might get somewhere. I advise you to save your time and not do this. I can't say I haven't got any unique clicks, because I have, but I still have not gotten paid or anything.

Never got anywhere with this one

I had signed up with LinkBucks hoping that I could generate some income just by people clicking on my links. However I quickly found out to generate any income from this site you must have A LOT of people to click on your links. The pennies I made just weren't worth my time or effort.

Not so good

Linkbucks is okay, but you would have to work really hard to make any money at all. It's okay if someone wanted to spend all their time on trying to get people to click links. It's for sure not a full time job. I have tried it, got several unique clicks and not even a cent in my account. Just save yourself some time and do not sign up.

Takes Time & Patience

LinkBucks is a 100% legit site if you were worried. It it really good for people who have a big blog or site. but it doesn't pay that much, like $1 for 1000 is way to much for me, but for some people who have massive blogs or sites that receives a lot of visitors than I tell you this will be a really good site for you, but for folks who don't have massive blogs or sites can use LinkBucks, but it will be quite boring and will take quite a while to earn money.

Ok Idea, Not Great Pay

The idea of linkbucks is great. I joined linkbucks just wanted to make some money to buy stuff off of other websites such as ebay. Linkbucks is not a scam. It works, but the thing about it is, it is very slow. But the amount of money you get is not worth it. I got half a cent from 27 clicks in a day. Honestly, how much money do you think you are going to make from earning half a cent each day. The idea is original, and could potentially be helpful for people who have websites with a large amount of users/viewers each day, but this site is not for the average person just trying to earn a little bit of money. It may also be very annoying to users to constantly have linkbucks pop-ups, banners, etc. , after every link they click. Linkbucks is a good idea, but the pay is not amazing, and it may come off as very annoying. C.

Very low pay per link click!

I've tried to use Linkbucks for months and I haven't even reached the minimum cash-out of $5. It probably is because my site doesn't have SUPER traffic, but it has a rather large amount of daily traffic. However, if you are committed to spending a lot of time, then it may be well work it. If you wish for a "get money quick" thing, then this is definitely not a right site for you. If you ever use it, I would advise people to not do pop-ups because many people have pop-up blockers which render it useless. Linkbucks is still a good way to add a bit into your income. It is easy to use because after you set your link, all you have to do is sit, relax, and watch the clicks roll in.

LinkBucks, not for me

When I first started with LinkBucks I was hoping to make a few dollars a day, but to my disappointment I only could a few cents after a week, so the only way to make big money from this program is to post a link buck link on every blog and article you have.

LinkBucks are good is you have a mountain of traffic or loads of blogs/articles but for me it is just a few dollars a month.

Personally I make more money from ads then with LinkBucks.

Didn't earn anything with them

I joined to linkbucks some months ago. And I did it for two reasons – first, I have seen many sites with mystical green line above them, where was name of linkbucks and I thought that it was something like ad with which people can make money. So I looked in linkbucks and their offer seamed interesting. I hoped to earn some extra cash like with google adsense. I checked their paying conditions and I thought that it could go. Also I searched for payment proofs and there was lot of them with big earning proofs. I added their link on two of my sites. But after three months I had zero in my linkbucks account. I was very disappointed. If on google ads I have about 5 clicks per day, in linkbucks I had nothing. Maybe my sites were using wrong people, or maybe their link doesn’t seem very attractive. I don’t know. But so I quit my work with them.
