This company is a scam. I got an email from them regarding one of my clients saying they had received a new query on their millionads listing. I was naturally curious since I don’t remember registering my client with a company called millionads and an actual query from one of these unheard of directories would be rare.
Millionads Resorts to Lies to Attract Customers
The first lie they gave me was that my client’s ad on millionads.org had already gotten 545 views and 59 clicks to my client’s website. I checked the Google Analytics dashboard and it showed zero referrals from millionads.org.
The second lie they gave was their website’s traffic count. They showed they have had about 50 million visitors yet their Alexa rank was about the same as my website. I’m quite sure I haven’t had 50 million visitors. A website’s Alexa rank tells us how much traffic they get in comparison to other websites. A rank of 1 million means 1 million websites get more traffic and the rest get less. millionads.org has an Alexa Rank of about 1.2 million like my website. I would expect a website that has had 50 million visitors to have an Alexa Rank of 1,000 or better, not 1.2 million.
The third lie millionads gave was that my client even had a listing with them. They don’t.
Millionads Wants You to Pay a Monthly Fee to Get Your Ad “Pushed” to the Top of Their Listings
As if anyone actually uses their listing to find a website. It doesn’t even have a search function. It probably will shortly though if they read this post.
They reel you in by saying they are already getting your ad views and clicks but will delete your ad if you don’t manually “push” the ad to the top in the next 30 days. They then hope you will find their automatic push feature and get you to pay anywhere from $10 per month to have your ad pushed to the top every 24 hours to $50 per month to have your ad pushed to the top every 15 minutes.
I would image they could make a ton of money this way but I can also imagine they could land in jail for fraud.
Who Is Millionads?
The phone number on their website is listed with 3 people with the same last name: Neena Goyle, Kuldip Goyle, and Idika Goyle who live at a house at 370 Hawkcrest Cir. in Sacramento. They’ll probably be moving up to some nicer digs before long.
