In 2005, I was a new and inexperienced internet marketer looking for ways to drive traffic to my web site. I came across the Adblaster by MegaPromoter, the site promised to instantly and effectively submit my websites to over 2,500,000 internet advertising sites and search engines.
It sounded very promising to me, so much so, that I immediately whipped out my credit card and purchased Adblaster. Basically, all I needed to do was enter my website address and hit submit, and I could see a little bar going across the computer screen as if it was indeed sending my websites to the 2,500,000 sites and search engines. This piece of software did not even bring 1% of the traffic that it promised me and it was a complete waste of my time and money. I felt that I had been taken and lied to and I was very disappointed.
Later I learned that the Adblaster by MegaPromoter really only submits to ffa pages and that ffa promotion is actually out of date. Not only that, I also have heard that the search engines will penalize you for advertising on the ffas because they are considered link farms. I do not know if this is accurate or not but its something to investigate nonetheless.
Looking back on the situation now, I regret ever trying the Adblaster by MegaPromoter. If I had it to do over again, I would research what other kinds of free advertising is available today. I would also try to find ways to advertise my website which do not require the use of my credit card. In addition to that, I wish I’d known back then that the company I purchased through actually offered refunds, because had I known, I would have requested my $50 back immediately.
I sincerely hope this review of adblaster by Mega Promoter has helped you steer away from ineffective advertising.
