Axill.in is a fraud – I’m sure!

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 bix@axill.in.  I wrote to them [ biz@axill.in ] 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.

    hmmm .. it could be that Axill.in is the Indian counterpart of the Axill.com corporate, hence the revenue streams would be different. So in effect, although they represent the same parent company, the parent company may not cater to the sister concern’s customers. Too much administrative costs if they start doing that. It could also be a franchisee … as it is, if you really want the ad revenues, would it not be better to market directly instead of succumbing to google ads or axill or omniture, et al?

    Yeah, but when they promise you 47 Indian bucks for a click…

    …common sense freezes to work.

    … You know what I mean 😉

    I am working with Both axill.in and axill.com and I am fine with them! Axill.in always send via check and axill.com pays via moneybookers.

    The only thing I liked about them so far is that their ads load very fast. I will update this thread if I receive any response from them.

    What bothered me about Axill is that their ads show pop-ups { totally unwanted } and open other sites even if you choose not to show pop-ups! Even if you hover over their ads, they open up! woa!

    My experience wasn’t good at all. I believe they have changed their name.

    Btw, you are theAnand? Right? Glad to see you here! 🙂
