    I've been using them on a couple sites for the last few days. I noticed some times(a lot on otmp3) that the ad doesn't show up at all. Any of you experienced this?

    I'm using ff beta not sure if that has anything to do with it or not

    I've had that happen a couple times(where it says loading?) but what I mean is not at all.

    widgetbucks sucks. Their tracking is BS. Just do a search for "widgetbucks scam" to see all the people talking crap about it since it came out. Great concept but bad tracking...or they just flat out screw people on purpose by "skimming" hits.

    I had WB on my site for a couple days. I had the ads placed below my content at the end of articles and the ad didn't even load until the browser was scrolled down and looking at it, then they took forever to load. Pointless waste of space if you ask me.

    I had them on BestReactions.com for a bit, and removed them shortly after.

    Useless clicks for revenue.

    maybe I should just stick with adsense and adbrite?

    Might as well give widgetbucks a couple weeks or so

    still going to "find out by yourself" ? lol.

    I'm not saying they don't pay or that you can't make money from it but just that it had the worst tracking I have seen from an ad network yet...though a close second was auctionads after shoemoney sold it.

    I don't know if their bad tracking was on purpose or not but they didn't seemed to be too worried and my guess is someone was getting paid for the clicks and since I know I wasn't getting credited for many clicks then it wasn't me lol.
