ReadBud (readbud.com) - Is it a Scam? | Not Recommended
After fully testing this site we have cashed out and been paid.
However we have our doubts about whether or not this site pays all
honest members. Just because we were paid, it doesn't mean everyone else
is getting paid from this site. Received many complaints about non
payments. Anyone that posted proof has either shown a fake payment proof
or they are from Australia. Which is were the site was founded.
Site will be moved to the Not Recommended List and here are the combined reasons why: 1. How can they
afford this? -
This might not be issue with most users, but I
have to ask...how can they afford to pay these rates? On my first day I
made $1.14 by reviewing 20 articles.
Some have hinted that advertising prices
help to make this
possible and sustainable. They use to have google ads on their site. Now
they are removed. We are guessing that google suspended them for asking
people to click on their ads. Which they are still doing with
Bidvertiser and InfoLinks.
I know for a fact that Bidvertiser
will not honor payment if they find out if you are asking your readers
to click on your ads. Which is what readbud is doing. Occasionally you
will see a sticky note that says
2. Taking Articles From The Web -
is pretty much telling people to commit click fraud for the sake of
getting more articles. People are not suppose to click on bidvertiser
ads or infolink ads unless they are genuinely interested. Not for the
sake to read more articles on a site so they can cashout!
Most of the articles
can be found online on other sites. Are
these being advertised by the actual author,
or are these
articles being copied and pasted without their permission?
Most of these articles on readbud are not even crediting the
Just about every article can be found elsewhere on
the web.3. Bugs
Had a hard time registering with this site. Both Chrome and
FireFox would not accept our registration. When we did get a chance to
register the site was down and not available. Finally we were able to
register using Internet Explorer

For whatever the
reason is, whether lack of staffing, time to manage one, or spam... this
site does not have a forum. Forums are a excellent tool for every site
to have. Members can post proofs and have a open line of communication
between staff and other members. This site does not have one.
do have a blog which you can find here:http://blog.readbud.com/5. Complaints & Negative Feedback -
