Mgid widgets

I added mgid widget on my site and i regretted it because i got a lot of negative complaints from my visitors about the mgid widgets that they get you redirected to asian *** sites. It includes a high risk for a user to click on those sites and child safety is another main problem about the mgid widgets.I don,t know why is mgid doing this or maybe the *** sites are financed by mgid. anyway,I got my lesson of staying away from mgid. And not only that after a couple of minutes they even get the firewall alerts post clicking the mgid widget.

They're scams themselves. Stay away from this company. I agree with the friend.

MGID stop exploiting innocent people

I was so surprised when i first heard that MGID guarantees 150-400% visitors on every click.I think i have not studied at all and my mathematics is very weak after hearing to this.if i send them one click they send me 400% which is 4 clicks ,if one click is considered as 100%.So for every click they are guaranteeing me 4 visitors to my site.If there are 1000 visitors on my site on per day basis then they guarantee me to give 1000x4000=40,00,000 visitors per day.I mean i like to ask is it possible or am i an illiterate guy?this is concerned with xxx sites only then otherwise its not possible at any cost!MGID stop playing your xxx tricks on innocent people money doesn't come as easy to us as you!

mgid is scammy, but you are an *** for thinking there are grounds for multiplying 1000 by 4000. Your basic math skills are rock bottom and embarrassing to yourself.


I hated it opens a new page every time when I use Google, I think it should consider some kind of Internet Virous, malware?

I worked for mgid as one of those ad creators. We were encouraged to just take images from Google images and other photo sites.

Also I think the click counts are fake. We would only get commission if our ads got more than 600k in one month.

When Iworked there some of my best ones got a max of 70k however after i left (I logged on a month later: they forgot to remove me from the system) my best old ads were around 6m hits in just a 2 week period ie after I left they didn't need to pay me commission. Coincidence?


Best digital media agency I have ever worked with.


MGID is cool if you have an entertainment website. They won't be able to increase you traffic if you want to promote finance, politics and world news.


Comments below are really strange because I've used MGID for a while and I must admit that it's a good company to work with. Traffic is good, and they're able to stick to their promises.


"Credit to the workers were being paid and unauthorised content are the only thing which are shown in advertisment of that widget" - most review which showed me when i searched at google. On clicking links the page is directed to 2-3 pop-ups and one directed page which shows some unrelated content and with full of advertisement which never makes a user to stay on that page no more longer.

If i uses the widget for my site, it is quite obviously that I will be sued for using unauthorised ads and copyright pictures. I think its better to stay away from third party traffic generators other then getting into bars for copyrights.


MGID is a third party traffic generator and is supposed to generate traffic. It does that but it generates a lot of other irrelevant traffic.

The widget is basically a set of images with links. However, numerous popups and popunders come which simply cannot be blocked. The traffic increases tremendously but it does not convert. There is a lot of activity but not result.

There is a lot of smoke but no fire. My original organic traffic went to MGID and the traffic that I received from them did not convert. My web page was littered with all kinds of ads. Ultimately I found my dedicated visitors left my site and only the traffic from mgid remained.

This traffic did not convert and was thus useless to me. My page bounce rate shot up and the page rank fell. I removed the widget with great difficulty. There seems to be some adware remaining which I have to remove.

A very bad experience indeed.

It might be possible that mgid widget may have installed some phishing code to extract my financial and personal details also. Maybe it is thinking too far, but a possibility exists.


Doing business with mgid may get your site blacklisted by Google Adsense, as mgid breaks the terms of service of adsense. Google Adsense does not favor MGID because of the backlinks in their widgets.

They take you to useless sites, which in turn have the widget installed, so you get more links to click. You just go on clicking from one link to another, without ever bothering to read any post or convert. MGID earns for every click that you make and you earn nothing, but useless traffic. If the traffic clicks on the adsense ads that you have on your site, then due to such fraudulent clicks, Google will surely blacklist your site.

As an advertiser myself, I do not want to pay for any click that directs a visitor to my page and that same visitor leaves my page within few seconds without converting. I think this is the reason why Google Adsense and MGID are at loggerheads.

The reputation of Google is being spoilt by mgid. Moreover, there are many reviews on the web that say mgid ads link to xxx sites in Asia.


From my experience, MGID is just a glorified spam delivery system. They are in the business of making money from buying and selling adverts and PPC.

It's another one of these scams that are technically legal, but very bad practice.

Traffic exchanges like this have a detrimental effect on an individual's website as bounce rates skyrocket, and the only traffic attracted to your site is the lowest quality. COmpanies like this also use fake traffic bots instead of real traffic as part of their ***.


Can quantity compete with quality? I have quality content on my blog and dedicated readers who come daily, and my page rank is slowly improving.

All my traffic is organic and many do convert to buy my products also. The traffic is dedicated but low. I am thinking of installing the MGID widget to increase my traffic. I am aware that the traffic will increase but then will they also read my posts?

Because if they don't read, they will not become interested and will not convert. If many do not convert, then the bounce rates will increase and my page rank will also go down. I suppose having quality content in a large quantity is best, something like what Wikipedia has. But that takes time or lot of participants.

I work on a meager budget, so I cannot get participants to write for my blog. I am seriously thinking of giving the mgid widget a try, but then again, I am afraid that the quantity may overpower quality.

And besides mgid has so many negative reviews on the web. Any thoughts?


thank you! royroh for informing this problem regarding Friends and I were about to install that widget for traffic exchange but your information gave me a good idea what this all about....and before also i heard its a sort a scam site and all i was just confused. And thanks man I must say, You saved my life from putting into trouble :)
