I am a member of Easy HIts 4 U too. I have been paid a couple times.
From what is being said by Phyllis Wolfe and others makes me think that PayPal may have frozen their money. It sounds like they are trying to limit surfing to limit payments and also to entice more money into their other payment processors.
I don't think PTC is that bad as long as you get a fair price on the PTC ads. Or penny surfers as they are called.
I have bought 3 million PTC credits at Clixten for $300 and advertised Donkeymails PTP, Rotate 4 All PTP, and No Minimum PTP.
It took about a year to use up all those credits but I made about $340 back from it and I got paid. Clixten use to have sales at
Christmas of 1 million credits for $100. They don't do that anymore though.
These were .0001 ads and I got about 2500 hits a day on each ad. It wasn't bot traffic because it was converting.
I also got 600 referrers on 5 levels at No Minimum in that year and that paid me another $60. So, a $400 return on $300 is good.
I will do that all day long around the clock if I could.
As far as conversions I heard that the signups to your promotion increases as you reach 7 views by one person. After they see it 7 times then the conversion rates go down. I imagine that it would be real hard to get someone at Easy Hits 4 U to see your ad
7 times because of all the traffic. If they are penny surfers then you want to advertise penny surfing sites.
On small traffic exchange sites that have the gravatar images of the leading surfers of the day on the surfbar. I like those sites because many of them only have 3 - 5 people surf it a day. Most of them also have the top surfer prize as well. It is easy to win
15 ot so credits for surfing about 25 sites.
I build up credits fast and easy there and those 5 people see my ads the 7 times and then they take action. They join my site and
I know where they came from because I seen their gravatar.
So, I think conversions is more about targeting to the market you are in and getting them to see it enough times to where they will take action.
