I must admit and apologize that I have now found out that, yes indeed IBOtoolbox/IBOsocial is a scam and a total waste of time.
I have many friends at IBO and that is the only reason that I have yet to write a full article on this and also why I have waited until now to update this post.
To the friends who I have in the past referred to IBO, I sincerely apologize and am now asking for your forgiveness.
I didn't know that the traffic at IBO was almost all entirely fake, now I do know!
How did I find out?
As a past Club IBO member ($19.95 per month) I created a banner ad and pointed the traffic to my website specifying only one platform within IBO to share it on. I also uploaded a few YouTube videos and had my website there as well.
Much to my surprise, my traffic shot up!
At first I was excited but then I saw that the time spent on my site along with my bounce rate were negatively affected. Not only that but I was getting traffic from all of the other IBO sites as well.
Yes, that confused me as well, how did my banners and/or YouTube videos get seen on those other IBO sites.
I then had an idea …… I uploaded more random YouTube videos and pointed the link to my own IBOsocial Profile page.
Guess what happened?
Overnight, I became the #1 traffic leader at the site, so I loaded more and yes I remained easily the traffic leader by far.
I also did the same thing with 2 separate profiles and had the same results, it was so easy.
I am so glad that you asked, it has become so obvious that IBO utilizes BOTS on their sites. I am so amazed that they haven't been found out by Google Adsense as the fake traffic should be against their terms of service…… then again, Google probably doesn't care as long as they are being paid by their advertisers.
Are you reading this and are a member at IBO? Send me a message if you want more details on the sharing of YouTube while having the learn more link directed to your IBOsocial Profile page. Any YouTube video 🙂 Load about 13 of them and you'll see that within 24 hours you'll be a traffic leader.
OK, I am usually not a negative person and that is why I haven't openly disclosed this information until now but I must now share so that more friends don't fall for the IBOtoolbox/IBOsocial scam, especially Kris Karafotas who is either the owner and/or the owner trusts her to run the show there.
Terrible support & leadership is also part of the IBO scam, the community of friends is the only reason why I stayed a member as long as I did. Please disregard all of the content below as it was written back when I had no idea that IBO was a scam.
