I’ve read on many forums that there’s a problem with their tracking system as far as how many impressions are being calculated. I can speak first hand about this issue. I just logged into my WidgetBucks account and I see that in one week I’ve only had a small number of impressions. This is way off, as my other ad systems are showing in the thousands for my other campaigns. Hopefully they’ll get this fixed soon and up to date.
Yesterday I spoke with three other internet marketers who have blogs similar to mine and they are also reporting little success with the program thus far. Very low CTR and again with the funny impression calculation. I’m going to give WidgetBucks some more time though. Anything new needs at least a month or so to get completely going and get any bugs worked out.
The good news is that eCommerce sites, such as sites based around the shopping niche are reporting excellent CTR. This makes sense, seeing as how WidgetBucks is based around, well – shopping ads!
