Oh God… I did not submit fool… :lol:

I use backlink checkers to track down all those that link to me and I then take a look to see if it’s of a certain quality (ie: non auto-generated ones) to add it to a “partner’s list” I created.

Some of them even write to me informing that they wrote up an evaluation and linked up to me so as to take a look and link back to them.

You’re funny man… :lol:

Here’s what I’ll do for you Sotos… I’ll send you in a private mail some sample emails that software distributors send to publishers so that you may see how it all works…

I really didn’t have to do much other than add them to my Partner’s List and link back to them, so as to say “thank you”.

Right. So you never submitted forms like this: http://www.softpedia.com/user/submit.shtml :roll: They searched Google for "browser" and they found your website on the billionth page :lol: Sure, some nobodies scrape the more popular websites and then might mass email all the apps listed there asking for backlinks (and some fools like you offer it to them), but for the more popular websites you submitted it yourself and you would be lying if you deny this.

No, I swear I didn’t have to…

They all check on each other to see if someone has discovered a new software package so that they can add it to their database too. They’re always hungry for new material.

In my case I was still building my site and had just uploaded my archives and was testing my DL links when “The Windows Club” discovered my then “.exe” files through automated bots they call “grabbers” or something like that, and they just went ahead without me knowing and wrote up an article on it and within two weeks it was all over the place!

I wasn’t impressed because this was a version I never intended to distribute outside the forum because it was still rather primitive, buggy, and I just wasn’t ready yet but it happened…

To this day I don’t need to do anything… within an hour of uploading a new version some 20-30 sites update their corresponding article automatically with special bots that check and grab archives. Pretty amazing…

I can’t complain, I’m grateful to all of them and that’s why I created the “Partner’s List” to link back to them… give something back and show my appreciation.

"I believe that there was a miscommunication, as what we offer you is a way to gain extra revenue. So in this case, we want to pay you and there are no investments required from you.

Our SDK is used to collect public internet data using your customer's network resources while their device is in an idle state. Also, our SDK has no UI, so it won't slow down your app and would not drain an extra battery. It does not have any annoying pop-ups or advertising messages - this means the better user experience and better app reviews for you!

Most importantly, XXXXXX SDK does not collect ANY personal user data, we are only interested in IPs, that would be used for our proxy solution.

Our payment methods are bank transfer, PayPal, and Bitcoin and there is no minimum threshold for payment. Also, if you do integrate our SDK on your app, you will be provided with a personalized dashboard so that you could see all kinds of stats, like how many daily active users do you have and how much you've made.

If you are still interested, please let me know, and I will be able to provide you with our SDK for both Windows and Android for you to test. Oh, and you will be paid for the test period as well :)"


So did you accept their offer, did they pay you anything, what? :roll:

Thanks.

Thanks.
