Adgitize is Closing Down

At 9:30 in the evening, I received an email from Ken Brown. He's the owner of Adgitize, a program that sends traffic to your website and earn the bucks again if you become an Advertiser. The email states that Adgitize is closing down because "the costs to run the business were more than the revenues generated". Furthermore, on the 27th of December, there will be new accounts. Adgitize will shut it down. On the 1st day of January 2012, Adgitize will officially stop showing ads and all members publishers will not receive revenues. If you have ads running on them, they will refund it on assessment and divide it into your ad price.

Prorated portion of ad price means if you have an ad running and it expires on January 15th, 2012 then we will send you a PayPal payment of 15/31st of the purchase price. If the purchase price was $14 then you will receive $6.77 USD from Adgitize. We expect to make all payments to refund advertisers fees by January 4th, 2012. If you want payment by check then you will have to wait until after the 12th of January before we send those payments out. 

Payouts for publishers and affiliates for the month of December will run on the normal schedule and should be complete by January 10th, 2012, except for those requesting checks which won't be processed until January 12th, 2012. There is a processing fee of $5.00 per check if your preferred payment method is by check. All publishers with monies owed them who have given us a valid payment method will be paid from $0.01 USD and up.
 Adgitize is great especially for newbies. I become a member in Adgitize 2009 without understanding fully its process. I add it in my blogs with the given-codes. I didn't bother to add the rss (feeds) url in adgitize. All I know is gain 100 points in adgitizing and post an article everyday. But, now that I understand it, add my rss and will decide to renew it on January, Adgitize is closing down.

I am very sad with the news. One, traffic - Adgitize is the number one traffic source for this blog. Second, revenues' as a publisher. That is the reason why I want to renew it because for the 1st month $14, I will not earn anything. I did not adgitize and post articles everyday. Renewing the ad for $8 is the best option and chance to earn what I invest, little by little

After Adgitize, now what? We will be facing a new year without Adgitize and one source of income was taken down, again. There's nothing we can do but follow and look for another way to earn.


  1. It was definitely sad news for me too. I very recently joined adgitize with a hope to earn some revenue for my blog, but unfortunately i wasn't so lucky enough. Anyways i dont regret too much, because with adgitize i got at least a little exposure to my blog and i am happy with that.

  2. IMHO, Adgitize was unsustainable. You need to look at ways to increase your traffic. With traffic comes profits.

    I believe this is where most people are completely mislead. Adgitize mastered the hype, but that's it. Long term sustainability should always be considered. This situation with Adgitize only illustrates that fact.

  3. This is really a sad news for us .. I really relying on adgitize when it comes to traffic tapos eto pa ang sad talaga :((
