Earlier this year I announced the sad news that Smorty had closed its doors, the way they suddenly shut down and disappeared during the night still leaves a bad taste in some people’s mouths to this day and it looks like BlogToProfit have gone down the exact same road.
Personally I was paid for my work with them a long time ago and I never received regular work from them, when I added a new blog I would receive a couple of tasks straight away and then that would be it, but I have seen a couple of bloggers comment on their blogs that they are still owed money from them.
This was one of the sites where I made far more money with their referral scheme than I did writing for them ($10.00 per referral, yes please!).
The domain now directs to a site called The Blogging Institute (but keeps referring to itself as The Blog Profit Academy in the content) , who promise to show you secrets to making money online for a modest $19.95 a month. I’m not sure if this is run by the same people or if they sold the domain name to someone else.
This is another example of why it is important not to use just one network, I use as many as I can find and you will find them all listed on my Make Money page.
It is a shame when legit networks like this go down the plughole but scam networks like Blog Advertising Store continue to go from strength to strength.
