Couple of weeks back, I got an invitation from folks at Axill.in [ http://axill.in ] to join their ad network. I didn’t accept as I thought it was yet another ad-network. Couple of days later, I read a review about them which said good things about Axill folks. I decided to give them a try.
I searched online for Axill and found out two links – Axill.com & Axill.in . Both these domains use the same logo – and the review I had read pointed to Axill.in. I decided to sign up. Got my account approved in a day. I put them on the site that receives thousands of unique visitors and a huge number of pageviews. Two days later, I logged on to check the stats.
To my surprize, the counters showed ‘0’ [all zeros!]. I wrote to Axill.com [Note .com] and they replied back soon asking if I’m using the code from Axill.in or Axill.com. I told them I had gotten the code from Axill.in. I was asked to write to firstname.lastname@example.org. I wrote to them [ email@example.com ] but no one has replied back yet. I wrote a mail back to axill.com folks and asked if axill.in and axill.com were different domains – and was shocked to get a response that said ‘yes’! 😯 [My Question: If they are two different domains and do not represent the same parent company – why the heck are they using the same logo?]
I investigated further and found out that actually axill.com links to Axill.in !
Whatever it is – publishers – do NOT use Axill’s services.
