zero - y, wow, really?!

Funny how they sure didn't "check into things" while there were thousands of visitors..

..or when they kept saying "y, please send more.."

Such bull&$^-! No words to describe how unsavory this kind of behavior is for a supposed "respectable" company about "news for the people by the people."

Totally disappointed in the process...took our traffic without a complaint until the money had to be dished out. I'll bet they made some good money from our group, you can't have millions of visitors and not one cent was earned.

Keep talking for sure, I guess I will have to wait to see if there are any dollars for the next month! Yikes, 90+ days of writing and payment to promote without anything to show for it.

Only good side... you tell me as I am not sure at this point in time!

@Belew - I hate to say it, but with some people you can't play nice. They only respect power. These are the people who created the mafia, after all.

This is downright unethical, but I'd say that it's time to talk legal obligation.

We acted in good faith. They did not. This is called a breach, and violates the principle of promissory estoppel.

We can sue in CS and win. But collecting is a different issue.

@Belew - there are people who specialize in small claims and collecting invoices. Like many things the question of whether is worth it can't be answered 'til the end.

But for me I'm behind now on multiple bills and owe folks that I borrowed to hire the Fiverr gigs. I'll leave it at that. We all suffering in our ways from this. 'nuff said there..

I got a fat zero 😠

I think it's worth investigating @jycmba

Some of my articles generated actually "real" viewers. It is only a few dollars but that is not being paid either.

What a pack of cheats.

Hi James,

we are very sorry about this. We have passed this issue to Western Union, which are the ones making the payments.
Unfortunately, your money will be sent over next month - we are very sorry about this but is is what they told us.

Thank you for your patience, James.

Kind Regards

Hi again James,

sorry to write to you again regarding the same issue, but I wanted to let you know that I have contacted the Finance Department about this; I will be writing to you tomorrow to confirm if we are able to pay you before next month regardless of Western Union's issues.

Thanks again for understanding.

Best Regards.

I got this reply ...

Hi Bill how are you? sorry yesterday I was not working.
The payment details inserted by James were not correct. That’s the reason why we contacted him, but unfortunately the payment period was already closed. Anyway now I’m calling the finance department to understand if they can “break the rules” an pay him now even if it’s late. I will let you know.
Thanks

Thanks. I still don't know what I entered wrong. They never said. If no one else got paid it seems like a bigger problem than data entry.

@Belew

If you still have a meeting with BN, I wanted to give you the latest info I have. Two days ago BN marked 10 of my stories as "PAID" instead of payment requested.

I still haven't received any pay however. I just checked paypal. No pay.

Just wanted you to know in case it comes up and they say they paid me already,

Jim

Hi James,

Sorry for the delay in the response but it took the Finance Department a bit to review your case.

I am sorry this happened to you.
This is the first set of payments we do with Western Union, some of the details inserted in the platform by some payees were missing or incorrect and for this reason Western Union was not able to pay you.
That’s the reason why Blasting News is now reviewing one by one all the last payments, finding out the missing information (and asking to the interested people for this missing information), in order not to repeat this issue during the next set of payments.
You will be the first on the list to receive your payment during the next round of payment (from the 5th of May)

Thank you for your understanding.
Please let me know if there is something I can do.

Amy,

23 min 16 sec phone call with BN ....

Analytics - the articles had less than 1% scroll down to read more. BN average was 60-70%.

Adsense - Our articles earned nearly zero. They got a phone call from Google direct asking about the quality of impressions generated.

Agreement - We did exactly what was asked - quick traffic would be poor I told them. "This is why the guy who made the agreement with you was let go." Is what they responded.

Aggregated Content Return - since our traffic nearly cost them their agreement with Google, CEO doesn't feel compelled to return it. But will ask one more time.

Traffic of the Month - the traffic this month is 10x better ... but still WAY BELOW average. 10% of visitors are scrolling down compared to BN average of 60-70%.

Best traffic source - Best source of traffic - search or otherwise is to chase trends in Google Trends and write about that. This strategy works exceedingly well in South America.

Our content - does not suit "Hot trends" and immediate traffic.

Questions?

@Belew - I find it truly hard to believe that they get 60 to 70% scroll downs on their articles - that does not happen on a hot site from a well-known guru - someone is lying here!

They had better pay us this coming month!

If they want HOT TRENDS they can have it but it will not change the scroll rates (they are extremely unreasonable to me). We may get 20% to 40% which is the average I have seen.

Everyone knows my content and how I write. If this is not suitable, I'm not sure I can fix it. I have written what I like to write and how I like to write. I can learn new things, but I don't see me writing about google trends.

Just so you all know what you are dealing with here.
Thanks, Jim
