    Has anyone else experienced a total tank job with Brightshare? We have gone from earning not great but decent money to not even earning enough for a dinner at Applebee's. I have also asked the contact person I have there he seemed unconcerned.

    Last yr at this time we had many players in the casino playing and earned near 1300, this month we have 0 players in there earning 0. Last month was no better, the month before same story.

    We send them massive amounts of traffic which is about to change over to a better program such as Rewards, whom when we do direct traffic to we see great results!

    I think personally Brightshare is in trouble. I find it hard to believe they cannot retain at least 1 player for us after all these yrs.

    I agree, Before the changeover to the 2 affiliate sites I received a pay almost every month. Haven't received one in awhile now. I wish they had left all the affiliates under the one site like it was before.

    They Tanked for me about 5 years ago.

    They used to have top spots on my sites but due to bundling I couldn't keep them there. At one time I went 4 months without any payment, can't live on that.

    Now I use 1 or 2 casinos in very low exposure places and make payment maybe 3 or 4 times a year.

    Many better programs out there to choose from and can make a good living.

    (PS) The US platform sucks bad, just try and get an answer to an email. I been waiting weeks for login info ???

    Oh I know sent them an e-mail and finally when I did hear back they said the only payment method was wire for me under the new system and I haven't earned enough to be paid. Probably never will at that rate

    Never could do anything with this group despite good reviews over the years. We even have some decent pages ranking on mobile stuff -- nothing. Took some time to get paid when we did make some $$ -- but I agree with most on this thread... in my experience.

    I also see this at my mobile casino site : low / no conversions.

    Not been able to add players for all slots and all jackpots for months, every month winning players....... accounts locked......very shady IMO

    So seems like this is a sinking ship time to jump off!

    This month is not good for us because of winners but we have been doing well with Brightshare for last 7-8 months.Most of our players come from Canada and Germany so considering where we have positioned them I think the results are fair.

    I used to have one player who would make me at least $250 per month from brightshare, and this has been happening for the last 3 years. Even that player disappeared and hasn't come back. The only thing that is good about brightshare is their free casino games links because they don't seem to make money anymore. Fortuneaffiliates.com is a million times better!

    I, personally, have found Brightshare to be one of the most trustworthy places out there (which is why they were allowed to become Platinum Sponsors).

    This has nothing to do with that sponsorship at all, but this is what I found:

    I had several high rollers who were marketed to other properties within the Brightshare group. EVERY time, without fail, those players were mapped. Additionally, they converted some average everyday players into whales for me. My guess is that those were big players who were testing waters. Their stats are some of the best, which helps you be sure if they are on the 'up and up'.

    Sorry for a dramatically different point of view, but I have found them to do a very good job with my players. Since UIGEA, it is definitely tougher everywhere, though.

    And another month of sending them well over 1k unique views etc and not 1 new depositor nor any of my old players are depositing. Something is seriously wrong here! I have not heard back from Roberto in weeks either!

    Well, I have to say, I can't fault them.

    They are my best program (in terms of retention and player value) by a mile. They have been doing great for me for the last 12 months, when I started sending them quality traffic

    I wonder, for those not doing too great with them, which countries are the visitors you are sending them from?

    Looking at my stats, I see that 95% of the clicks I send them are from Canada and all of the real money players are Canadian. Most of the traffic I send came to my sites searching for long-tail, specific terms like "play real money casino games canada"

    Would be useful to know the visitor countries and search terms for the people here not doing so well with them...

    That's odd, most of my traffic comes from Canada as well, but I'm seeing the same poor performance as many others in this thread. I use the Canadian landing page too.

    I put them on the top of my toplist this month just to try it out, and not a single player yet, while others lower on the list have had a few.

    I've seen plenty of clicks since I put them on my site, several times more than casinos that I've sent players to, but it just seems to be a waste of good traffic.

    Maybe their website needs a new look?

    In the last two months I have seen a few top quality players disappear - poof. Not sure what, if anything, they are doing to retain them or if they shave. I was making decent money from these players for a good while.

    The departure of Lloyd in that same time span - it worries me.
