Paid Forum Posting Review

Name: Paid Forum Posting (PFP)


Founded: 2005 (at least they claim so)

Short Review: Paid Forum Posting is a website that has way more disadvantages than advantages. There are tons of complaints all around the Internet by clients and writers. In addition, their pricing is much more expensive than on other similar websites. Their support team has a negative reputation as being unpolite with their clients.

If you are interested in earning money online with paid forum posting, I recommend using Postloop. It’s a very reliable website that pays promptly. I have used their service a lot for buying content to my websites. Their support is extremely helpful and they have always answered all my requests.

I don’t personally do paid forum hosting because I found a better option. Have a look at My #1 Recommendation for making money online. I believe you will love it because the earning potential is much greater than with forum posting.

What Is Paid Forum Posting?

Paid Forum Posting (PFP) is a service that provides content for forum/website/blog owners. They also offer an opportunity to earn money for creating content for their clients. So, you have two options to work with them:

  1. Buy content
  2. Provide content

With content they mean:

  • Forum/blog comments
  • Standard articles
  • SEO articles
  • Tweets

So, you can earn money through their website by writing comments on blog and forums, by writing articles or tweets. As a website owner, I know that there is a huge need for this kind of services. We need new content all the time to boost Google rankings and provide valuable information for website visitors.

paid forum posting review
PFP provides all these services for their clients.

Is a great service for this purpose? Let me explain why I prefer to stay away from their service.

Why I Don’t Want to Try

I am always open to trying new services. I invest time and money usually daily for registering to new websites and paying for their services. However, I have made a decision that I don’t support suspicious websites even for my research. If a website/company isn’t reliable, I don’t want to support their work by paying them anything.

But why PFP falls into that category? Let me explain.

1.Tons of negative Paid Forum Posting Reviews

Many users (clients and writers) have been dissatisfied with their service. Have a look at a few examples:

paid forum posting review
Tobias wanted to earn money with Paid Forum Posting but his experience was awful.

Tobias’ example is only one of many complaints from PFP writers. I have seen many other people also complaining about the complicated process and tough deadlines. Sometimes instructions have been very confusing and the writer didn’t know well what to do.

In addition, you are tied to strict deadlines unlike on some other websites like.

paid forum posting review
This person was scammed by PFP.

The person who has written that long review tried to buy content from PFP fro $503,80. However, he never received the content so he tried to get a refund. That didn’t happen as easily as he would have wanted.

PFP team refused to give him a full refund. They charged $75 even though they didn’t give anything for that client. Let’s sum up what happened:

  1. The client lost money ($75).
  2. The client lost time. (He made an order, paid the money, contacted support, asked for a refund)
  3. The client didn’t receive anything he would have wanted from PFP.

If there would be only a few negative reviews on the Internet, that wouldn’t be so bad. However, there are almost solely negative reviews of PFP. Actually, it’s hard to find almost any positive experiences from their users.

2.Expensive Prices

Their prices are literally expensive. Have a look, for example, at their pricing of SEO articles:

paid forum posting review
PFP charges $40 for a 1000-word SEO article.

If you compare these prices to HireWriters or iWriter, they are ridiculous. I have bought several $8-10 articles from HireWriters that still drive me tons of traffic every day. If you want to get high-quality articles for a reasonable price I recommend trying HireWriters.

One 1,500-word SEO article costs $60 on Paid Forum Posting. In my opinion, it’s a big price. Only some very professional writers usually charge so much. If I would find an awesome writer, I could consider paying him $60 for an exceptional article but that kind of writers are extremely rare.

Of course, PFP can always say, “Yes our prices are not the cheapest ones on the market but we provide the best quality.” However, when I take a look at their reviews I am not so convinced about the quality.

3.Outdated Website

Of course, a design is not the most important thing. If everything else is working well, the design doesn’t really matter. Still, it’s a bit more enjoyable to use a website with a modern design rather than a design from 10 years ago. (Well, somebody could say that my websites also need a little update. But at least I am focusing on high-quality content and responding all requests from visitors.)

4.I Have Already Found Better Alternatives

I am satisfied with HireWriters freelance writers and Postloop forum posting. That’s why I don’t even have a need to try PFP. They wouldn’t provide additional value to better services based on what I have learned about their company.

Earning Money on Paid Forum Posting

I wrote the previous chapters mostly from the client’s point of view. However, many same things apply if you are considering to work with them as a writer. Low-quality support doesn’t help you to earn money at all.

If you want to earn money through their website, you need to first go through their screening process. I have heard experiences from many people who tried to get qualified but didn’t past tests. The reasons were not that their English wasn’t the best. Some applicants had even a degree from English literature and were native speakers. Still, they were disqualified.

Some people find this process very confusing and sometimes you don’t even know the reasons why you are disqualified.

All in all, I don’t recommend doing business with suspicious companies like PFP. By the way, they don’t even have a phone number where you could call. You may contact them only by email or through social media. What if they just disappear and don’t pay as they have promised? I wouldn’t risk valuable time to see that.

Conclusion – Is Paid Forum Posting a Scam Or Legit? seems to be a suspicious website and I recommend staying away from their services. It’s much better to concentrate on more reliable websites and companies.

Yes, some people have earned money on PFP but most of them say it’s not worth the hassle. You need to go through their confusing screening process and meet strict deadlines.

As a client, I want to invest my money on websites where I get a positive return on investment. I invested on similar websites like PFP and the best one is Postloop. You can get high-quality comments from real people. All members have a rating based on previous comments they’ve provided. You can choose to qualify only high-quality comments.

Making money by commenting blogs and forums is more profitable than online surveys and PTC-sites but still, you won’t earn very much. If you are interested in making a living online, I recommend other methods.

My #1 recommendation for beginners to make a living online is affiliate marketing. The concept is easy to understand and anyone can learn it. I know many people from all around the world who make good money with affiliate marketing (including myself).

Some years ago I didn’t know anything about affiliate marketing. But I found a wonderful step-by-step training that taught me everything I needed to know. In addition, they offered all tools that helped me to succeed. At the moment they are still offering free membership for most countries.

By Roope Kiuttu

Hello! I am Roope "Robert" Kiuttu, the founder and owner of I created this website back in 2015 to help you to make money online. You can ask me anything and I'll be happy to help you out. I help people daily to make more money online and I love seeing people succeeding. If you want to get my 1-on-1 support and help to make money online as well, get started HERE.


  1. Hi, Roope! I just wanted to stop by again and say thanks for the more positive comments about PFP. All is going well on our end with the new ownership and we’re happy to report that we’ve had no client complaints since last April when the buyout took place.

    I would like to mention to any potential writers that we do have extremely strict standards for acceptance. I’ve seen many people on various sites who take issue with this, but hiring only highly qualified English-language writers has been a company policy since the foundation of PFP and since it’s what we guarantee our clients, we don’t allow exceptions to this rule.

    I’ve also seen several people who claim they have the requisite qualifications, but were rejected. This sometimes happens when applicants opt to use something other than a computer to apply or when they submit their application posts before proofing. Applicants are not allowed to edit their posts, so proofing prior to submitting is strongly recommended.

    From our family to yours, we wish you and your readers a wonderful year!

  2. Trust is very important to me. I only work on those sites that have been true and honest with me for several months or so. I work essentially as I should be since they pay me for what is due. Some sites can really be tempting to work for. That’s why critical and intensive research has been my ally to get that introduction or at least first step of TRUST.

  3. I haven’t tried paid forum posting but I’ve heard so many negative feedback from them recently. Postloop platform is still the number one and effective in online earnings and I’ll stick to this rather than signing up to paid forum posting. You are right Roope, one of my friend who’s a college professor and very excellent in English language failed in paid forum posting screening and she just laughed at me because it seems that they are a scam one.

    1. They have upgraded their services and now they have new owners on PFP.

      Anyway, have you tried other ways to make money online than Postloop? There are much better and more profitable alternatives if you are interested.

  4. I know, I even applied as a writer. However, they did not accept me. They took three weeks to send me a notice that I did not meet their requirements. There are a lot of complaints about this forum. I know a person who was also rejected. He was a native English speaker with a degree in English. If they are not accepting a native writer with English degree, who are they accepting?

  5. I am using Postloop as of the moment. And and i already had my 2nd payout. I just received it through my paypal account. That makes Postloop a legit and trusted paid forum posting site. The instructions are easy to understand and follow. You just have to love what you are doing and everything becomes a lot easier. That is why i am looking for another reputable paid forum posting site because i believe that i could use this skill of mine to make some extra cash online. I hope someone could suggest another paid forum posting site that is legit and true to their words.

    1. Thanks for sharing your experiences with Postloop as a writer. I will recommend it to my friend who is starting to earn money online.

      Postloop is certainly not the best way to earn money online, or even close, but it can be a reasonable way to get started. In the long run, I recommend that you also start doing more profitable activities like affiliate marketing and others because then you’ll earn more and have even more fun.

  6. Again, thanks for this article and i also have a question. Is there any other website that you could recommend other than postloop? I am only just a beginner at commenting on forums and blogs and i am just starting to get the hang of doing this kind of job. And postloop is really a good website for me to do and hone this skill of mine. I think that it would be great if i could join another fantastic site like postloop. So I’m hoping for your positive response here. 🙂

    1. I highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate for beginners like you. It’s also great for more experienced people and there are some people in the community who have been making money online +10 years.

      You can also check out other online jobs here. I recommend that you don’t stick to Postloop for forever if you want to make good money online. There are much more profitable alternatives available. For example, I earned on Friday +$500 just by using the methods that Wealthy Affiliate teaches.

  7. Thanks for all the information that i need. Maybe I’ll just wait it out a little longer and see what the new owner will do to this website. After that, maybe more positive reviews will come out, then I’ll decide whether to join the website or not. I just hope it turns out better for them and for the people that wants jobs and services that they are offering. 🙂

  8. Thank you for sharing this information about PFP. I tried joining but I never did the screening tests. I have also read negative reviews about the site although I wanted to experience it for myself. I find the information you have given to be very well detailed and now I have a reason to not focus on getting approved on PFP.

    I also like postloop very much. 😀

  9. As a long time content provider on PFP, I would like to add my 2 cents to this piggy bank. (The 2 cents I just earned on PL ;)) I have been through 3 owners on that site. During my first few years there it was not uncommon to see 5 pages of jobs that needed to be filled. Some of the oldest jobs on those pages, the site links didn’t even work anymore. My first “owner” was a hoarder of sorts. She cared about her job, but she had a habit of biting off more than she could chew.

    The 2nd owner was not U.S. based and was not as hands on as they should have been for an online business that is decidedly VERY competitive. She cared, but not enough to meet the demands that running a business like this calls for. I don’t mean to be overly critical of past ownerships, but I felt it was important to give a little history lesson so others can know how far this site has come over the years.

    The current owner has been an active contributor to PFP for as long, or longer, than I have. The team that runs the site now is very hands on, very knowledgeable in the business itself and seems to genuinely care about running this business the right way. Meaning, they care about their public persona and the needs of clients, they care about their writers, they care about the type of content they ask us to write and they care enough to keep up with the constant changes that Google brings to the internet. Namely, how Google treats content these days.

    Content is king right now and the search engines are crawling for the best of the best. This business is just like any other in that you get what you pay for. You want to pay someone 2 cents for a 25 word post? Don’t expect Google to be impressed with the results. You want to go the route of PFP and pay substantially more? You will posts like the one I am writing right now. You will get people like me who will probably give you more than the 25 word minimum if the situation calls for it, SEO friendly content without necessarily being asked and a product that search engines will like. Why? Because us writers like what we do, we typically pick forums whose online topics match our offline fields of expertise and, most importantly, we want to keep clients coming back placing orders.

    I am a firm believer that you make your own luck. As a writer, that means going above and beyond when you can for the sole purpose of job security……for the sole purpose of clients coming back every month ordering more work. By no means am I the only writer there who feels this way. As an owner, that means fostering a family atmosphere among the writers which extends to the clients. Yes, there is a certain level of anonymity involved. I like to make the analogy that PFP writers are to their clients what the traveling Uncle Bob is to the rest of his family. Someone you don’t know as well as the rest of the family because of his mobile lifestyle, but yet someone who sends you photographs and postcards to keep you as up to date as possible.

    In closing, I will just say this. If you care about getting exposure to your website, the chat forum section of your site, your blog, your comment section of your sales page or the marketing copy on your sales page…….come on over to PFP. The ladies and gentlemen at the top of the ladder will work with you. Do they charge more than others? Yes, I won’t lie. But as they say in Googleville, you don’t nickle and dime your way to the top of the search results pages.

    I hope this dispels any negative vibes or past experiences that people have about PFP.

  10. It looks like they have a nice site but I will still not be using them. They might have new owners but I will be reluctant to use them personally until some others have tried it out and have a good experience with them. I had a quick look at their forum posting service and their prices are quite astonishing really. They charge $8.00 for 10 forum posts. I could get 10 forum posts for around $3 and they would be high quality from other places. Sounds like a rip off.

    1. Yeah, that’s pretty expensive. Postloop prices are cheap while the quality is still top-notch.

      Anyway, at some point I paid $1 per comment on other service so PFP is at least cheaper than that. And if their quality is good, then the pricing isn’t so big problem.

      1. I agree. If you like PostLoop, I would even recommend TheForumWheel to you. They have quite cheap prices as well (I’m not too sure how they compare to the PostLoop) but they have a lot stricter guidelines regarding the content posted by users so you are always guaranteed high-quality content on your site. The only issue is that I’m not sure if they offer support for blogs as yet but I’m sure the owner will be able to do something if you have a strong interest.

        1. Yes. As I’ve said before, Forum Wheel hasn’t answered my emails so I don’t know how to get started with them. I don’t know why they didn’t answer but that’s not a good sign for me. Well, I send now another message to try to get started.

  11. Hi all! I actually work for Paid Forum Posting AND Post Loop. I have worked for Paid Forum Posting since 2007 and earned thousands of dollars from them and have the payouts to prove it. I have worked for Postloop off and on for three or four years and have only earned a couple of hundred dollars although I don’t use the site daily by any means. Paid Forum Posting pays a lot more per post than Postloop has ever considered to their writers, but in return they do expect your grammar to be perfectly written English.

    In regards to the outdated website…we just launched a new one at the end of October so you should come by and see what we have now. I absolutely agree that it was outdated before, but looks wonderful now. Paid Forum Posting has had 3 owners, with the newest owners taking over in the Spring of this year, so if the complaints you mention were from before then, then you are trashing the wrong people unnecessarily. The new owners are working very hard to grow the company and provide the very best customer service that they can.

    PostLoop certainly has it’s perks but Paid Forum Posting is a good company to work for as well and they provide the content that they promise to deliver as ordered and on time. If there is any truthfulness in you, as you bemoan the lack of in your PostLoop review, you will allow this comment to go through so that people can see the other side. Perhaps you will even give Paid Forum Posting a try for yourself, we have inexpensive starter packages so you can see how we work, and their is a discount code up for Thanksgiving right now!

    1. Hi Ally,

      thank you very much for sharing your experiences with Paid Forum Posting. You are right that the article was written based on the “old version of Paid Forum Posting”. I have added a note at the beginning of this article.

      And yes, you can completely trust in all information that you read on my website. Honesty, integrity and transparency are values that I represent.

  12. Hi, all. I am an administrator at PFP and I just wanted to come on here and introduce myself and clarify some points. First, the company is under new ownership and our recent interaction with clients has been very well received. We do guarantee all work to be completed within a timely manner and clients are informed of every aspect of their project from the time they order through to completion.

    We also launched a new website shortly after this article was written and we invite everyone to visit. We agree that the old site was a dinosaur and we are very proud to have moved the company pages into 2017. 🙂

    Regarding our writers and the hiring process, it is true that English competency is a very strict requirement. The reason for this is because our clients expect it and they are not tolerant of typos and improper grammar on their sites. If someone is looking to simply populate their site with little concern for the quality of content included, they don’t usually come to us for this purpose. PFP’s client base is focused on having professional writers who take client needs into consideration at all times. It is for this reason that PFP writers are compensated better than any other writers in the industry.

    We are always happy to consult with clients prior to ordering and this can be done through the main site. Anyone interested in applying to be a writer with us can click on the Contact Us button and follow the Employment option.

    Thanks for your time!

    1. Thank you very much for the info and the update. I took a quick look at your site and it looks way more professional! I consider buying some content from your site in the future.

    2. Thank you for posting that information. I just want to ask if there is a job for someone like me who “post comments on blogs and forums”? I am really interested in joining your site if there is such a job. Hoping to hear a positive response from you soon. Thanks in advance. 🙂

  13. I agree with you with, they have been true to their promises and their system is not very complicated. I guess the truly legit sites are sometimes being dominated by scam sites through search engines. I hope that those legit websites should come up with something that their sites will be found by those people who truly needed help in terms of earning.

  14. Hi Roope! Nice article…

    Over the past several months, I’ve come into the realization of how valuable content can be. Whether you need writers for blogging, SEO purposes, or affiliate reviews. Original, informing, unique content are gems in the website world.

    Initially, the idea of a paid posting content exchange sounds nice. But it needs to be backed by quality writers, in order for the service to receive quality reviews. Postloop is one of the only content exchange services that deliver what’s stated on their website; quality, engaging content worth purchasing.

    In my opinion, I think you have a few alternatives like Paid Forum Posting. However, they fail to present the consistency, nor credibility that a service like Postloop offers. Personally, if I was seeking paid content (excluding Postloop), freelancing websites would be my next best option.

    Because you have a lot of genuine freelance writer’s who are willing to work with you directly. So it depends on your scenario, as well as what type of content you’re looking for!

    1. Yeah, high quality content and consistency is king. At the beginning of this year (2017) I started publishing new content daily on Google rankings and traffic has literally boomed. Some people (including myself!) have been amazed by the rapid growth.

      I have used several freelance marketplaces for outsourcing some articles but I’ve noticed it’s not so easy to find good writers for a cheap price. That’s why I produce most of the content myself. In the future I’ll train a few regular writers who can write content regularly for my websites. Content creation takes time/money but it’s worth it because it can serve so many people around the world who read/see it.

  15. I can also vouch for Postloop. They are very quick to respond to concerns and inquiries. Also, the processing of your withdrawal is fast and easy. I guess from most reviews that I read about paid forums, Postloop is at the top, if not the first.

    When your rating is high on sites like Postloop, chances are, you’ll be writing comments for hours and reap a good amount pf points in no time. I will most probably skip this Paid Forum Posting site and thank you for this review.

  16. From the looks of things and your review on Paid Forum Posting (PFP), it’s definitely obvious that there is shady business going on with the site and if one is not careful, one would end up being duped or made to work for nothing after wasting his or her time.

    Now, I would 100 percent agree with backing the horse with Postloop, as I have earned quite a couple of hundred bucks from the forum and it’s their processing of cash withdrawal that gives me joy. It’s quick, smooth and swift without any stress whatsoever.

    1. I’m happy to hear you’ve enjoyed Postloop and they’ve paid you already hundreds of dollars. Actually, I have already paid Postloop hundreds of dollars for receiving comments to my websites. 😉

      1. Really, you must be kidding me but I doubt if you are because I have come to understand that you are really good at what you do. And if you said that you have paid postloop for receiving comments on your website, I definitely have no reason to doubt that.

        The main reason why I actually believe just about anything that you said is based on how you carry out your review on most site, that is definitely a meticulous task in which only one with refined skill sets can effectively and efficiently carry it out successful.

        1. I’m not kidding so I have really bought lots of comments on Postloop. Before that I bought some comments from another website which was even much more expensive so Postloop rates are fine.

          Thank you very much for your positive feedback. I really appreciate it!

  17. Why should I go to outdated websites anyway? Why not go for those have more positive comments and competitive topics? I’m one of those thousand of people looking for extra income and I’m glad being part of Postloop. Aside from variety of forums you can choose, the standards are above average. It’s trendy and support will get back to you as soon as possible.

  18. Thank you for this review. Now people know what sites are truly legit, I use Postloop for almost 2 weeks they really pay you when you get 100 points through PayPal.

    All you need to do is post comments and you will earn money base on your writings.

    1. It’s true that PayPal is the only financial platform that postloop uses in paying out it’s members cash out withdrawal. This is good but also bad as well because there are some countries that doesn’t have PayPal services functional in it and as result of this, it’s makes withdrawal very difficult for such person.

      So therefore, in my opinion if postloop can improve on including other cash out methods with PayPal, it’s definitely going to make withdrawal a lot easier for people.

      1. True. It seems that most money-making websites like to pay their members through PayPal because it’s easy for the company and the one who earns as well. But it makes a bit challenge if PayPal isn’t available in a country where you are living… Sometimes contacting support team helps and they can figure out other ways but not on all websites.

        1. I have actually tried that on several occasions but all to no avail. I know how stressful it is for me to cash out from all these money making website. I was fortunate enough to meet friends from one online football gaming community (Top Eleven football manager) it’s with his help and use of his PayPal that I make my withdrawal and he then sends it to me across here using western union money transfer.

  19. That whole procedure seems just a little to much like amateur hour if you ask me, there are no TOS or privacy policies found on that site that you can read and make an effort to find out. My main concern with this is actually the entire “we are employing” and “deadlines” parlance. If you’re going to take care of me as an impartial contractor then, do you know what, we should indication a proper agreement that has your and mine responsibilities clearly defined which I could use to start some legal action and defend myself if you fail your commitments.

    Considering they charge a complete dollar for a tweet and then pay you 20 cents for this while challenging it to be achieved on a routine rather than even automating the procedure for you I say: no many thanks.

    You may get more than 15$ for a well crafted article someplace else if you are actually into being truly a freelance writer and you have the talent.

    1. Good points. And you can earn even much more than $15 for writing articles. I just yesterday talked with a friend who earns at the moment on average around $55 per article she writers.

  20. To be honest, I never seen this website before. I have been looking for trusted and legitimate websites for online Internet jobs from Nepal but however I can not locate the right and legitimate website yet. I had been join so many websites but 99% of websites are scam and fake but I am still trying to find best one. So many people are recommending different websites but most of them are not trusted some how I found this website called Postloop but I am not sure this site is trusted or not because I am a new user for this site. So, Hope this will help us!

    1. I have reviewed more than 300 make money online opportunities and I can say that 99% of them are NOT scams. Of course, there are lots of scams online but there are also many legitimate money-making opportunities as well.

      My #1 recommendation for beginners is Wealthy Affiliate because their training teaches you step-by-step how you can earn a living online. It also helps you to avoid scams. I think that when you go through the Wealthy Affiliate training you will never fall into scams anymore.

  21. I’ve never seen this site before, that PFP something. It’s a good thing I’ve seen this blog, if I would’ve seen that PFP site earlier, there’s a possibility I’ll be Tobias in the near future. Your posts really sure is amazing and very helpful sir.

    It’s not just you’re helping me about new sites in this modern day, but also you’re giving us an idea whether the said site can be a scam or legit, preventing us to be part of the nationwide scamming trend. Hopefully I can also find a topic here that discusses BTC, for sure there’s a lot of sites that scams people about these BTC’s.

    1. Thank you for the positive feedback Genesis.

      Do you mean Bitcoins with BTCs? I have used Coinbase and Kraken for buying/selling bitcoins and they are at least completely legitimate websites. In Coinbase you also get a $10-bonus right away by using my link. I have also recently joined to Poloniex platform but I haven’t yet got started.

      Overall, I have earned thousands of dollars with bitcoins and one of my best friends actually became a millionaire with bitcoins. That was quite impressive.

  22. From that site layout alone I would stay so far away. I’ve come across a lot of supposed paid sites that have a similar amateur looking layout and they always turned out to be scams once I did enough research on them.

    If they didn’t turn out to be scams then they often just turned out to be run by amateurs, which is pretty much the same, and by your review I can already confirm that. Thanks for posting your review so hopefully others will be warned.

      1. This is true, and I agree. I suppose not all bad layouts automatically mean that the site is a scam and further research should be done for all opportunities as much as possible so as not to pass up good ones just judging by looks alone. That is why I think your site and service is very valuable as it does most of the testing for us workers and consumers. 🙂 I hope that the new owners will prove to be a welcome change for this site because I could always use a new site to spend some spare time on and get a few extra dollars here and there.

        1. Exactly. It’s always good to do research before investing money.

          Thank you very much for the positive feedback again. Always feel free to share my website with your friends if you think they would find it helpful as well. 🙂

  23. They seem really sleazy in handling the financial aspect of the business which is one of the reasons that shows they’re not to be trusted.

    When I try things that I am not familiar with, I would check out the reviews first before deciding if it’s worth my time, effort or money, and Paid Forum Posting having tons of negative comments and issues, especially the ones with their admin, that is a problem which is not to be neglected.

    There are a lot more options to choose from for both content writers and forum owners, and this should obviously be the last on their list.

    1. It’s good that you always research before investing your time and money on new products/opportunities.

      What other similar services do you know for forum owners in addition to Postloop and Forum Wheel? Do you know if there are some other similar networks?

      1. I don’t know any other websites that offer these same services, but from what I’ve read, Postloop seemed to have the best reviews. I joined Forum Wheel too but the number of forums and blogs affiliated to it were a lot lesser than the ones on Postloop.

  24. Before I started using Postloop for comments for my blog, I looked at PaidFourm posting. They had a kinda slick website and I curated their selection process, it looked legit.

    Yeah, I was naive, never ever again.

    I went for their basic package for about ($100) for a bunch of comments (25-30ish). From the start, I was promised that the comments would have been added in the next week, but within 2 weeks there was nothing, only comments from my regular users. I contacted their support, the wait was short, but that was the only good thing to say about it! They were rude, clueless, and blamed me for not monitoring my site properly! The cheek!

    After a month of dealing with them, I finally just gave up in my $100, they weren’t worth my future time and effort, I’d rather use my time writing a good blog post. Thanks for exposing them, as I see many clueless bloggers lured into their trap, I hope much more are made. Poostloop forever!

    1. Hi Anton,

      thank you very much for sharing your experiences with Paid Forum Posting website. It confirms that their site definitely isn’t worth the hassle. So many people have had similar negative experiences with them.

      I’m glad that you have found Postloop and you enjoy using it. That service is awesome. One comments costs like less than $0,20 or $0,15 so it’s almost nothing. However, comments clearly boost Google rankings and overall user experience so they are definitely worth the investment.

  25. Reputation is one of the key things to check on finding forum/websites that offer payments for offering services. Most of the people who want to make a quick buck get deceived by the high pay-outs offered by these websites.

    Gladly there are a lot of reviews that can be quickly searched through many popular search engines to avoid being scammed. Thanks for spreading awareness and offering free reviews that startups like me could check.

    I am new to these kind of offers and there are only two sites that I have tried so far. Keep it up and I hope for your success. I am making a startup and would love to keep in touch with people like you who have a lot of experiences in online marketing and earning.

    1. I’m glad you enjoy my content. If you are interested in making money online, I highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate. You can sign up and get helpful training series and resources for completely free. You can also connect with me personally inside the community and I’ll answer all your questions that you want to know about making money online. I would be happy to help you out 🙂

      WA is great for beginners because their training is understandable even for persons who don’t have any experience of making money online. Their reputation is also very good because there are tons of positive reviews of WA on the Internet and they have more than 12 years of experience in the industry of helping people to earn money online.

  26. Thanks for this informative post Mr. Kiuttu. Your inputs and suggestions are very much appreciated by us, the online job hunters. May your online business grow more and gain more audience. More power to your blog .

    1. Thank you very much! The business is actually doing quite well. Every month I am hitting new records with the traffic and the income. It’s exciting to have a “raise” every month. lol

  27. Thanks for this review, I was planning on joining that website to make some side income. However, with such a sketchy reputation, I would better stay away.

    On the whole, I am really impressed by the quality of reviews as well as detailed explanation of your blog. You seem to be putting in a lot of work in each and every review which is helping us, readers.

    1. Yeah, better to stay away from Paid Forum Posting. Just stick to Postloop if you want to earn some extra cash by commenting on blogs. You can also create a profile on Fiverr where you sell blog/forum comments. I’ve seen many such gigs there and I tried some of them once.

      Thank you for the positive feedback! It always encourages me to do better and more. I have big plans for I want to grow it and I’m planning to work on this website for years to come. That’s why I want to provide the most helpful information possible for my readers.

  28. Someone referred me to that site and took a look on it. They are okay in the first look and read some reviews about their services but only to found out that their are some hidden client complains on other page about it. There are also videos on youtube on how you will earn from them and i noticed that the comment section is disabled and i wonder how will the interested person will reach them and comment back and i think this is to avoid bad comments about them.

    1. Interesting to hear that. I’m wondering why they would disable comments if they would be a reliable company. I always want to hear comments, questions and feedback from my readers and on YouTube videos as well. It helps me to help other people better and communicate with them. I don’t understand what’s the point of disabling comments.

  29. Again I agree with almost everything you posted. I think if the quality is good the prices can be a bit higher than on other sites but here I don’t know if the quality would be so much better that it requires the client to pay so much more. The negative reviews and ugly website are definitely red flags.

    1. Yeah, I would definitely pay more if the quality is better. However, my own experience shows that the price doesn’t always correlate with the quality. I have bought $8 and $30 articles and many times those $8 articles get ranked better on Google than more expensive ones. In Finland we use to say, “He is not stupid who charges the high price but he is a stupid who pays the high price.” 😉 I don’t know if there’s an idiom for this in English as well.

      Another example are MLM-programs. Prices are almost always higher than in similar products in the supermarket even though the quality is the same.

  30. I actually looked at this site a while ago to become a paid writer for them but after reading some of the reviews I decided to stay away. There are quite a lot of people that have complained about their fees when returning the money which is awful.

    They don’t do anything but take an absolute large amount of money for no apparent reason. The pay is just not worth either and their prices for buyers are stupid as well. Much better to stick to PostLoop & TheForumWheel

    1. Yeah, company takes huge part of the cake. They don’t share so much for the writer who actually does the work. Postloop service is great and works very well. I have tried to use Forum Wheel but I wasn’t able to submit my website there. I contacted their support but didn’t receive an answer. Maybe I’ll try again…

      1. TheForumWheel currently only allows forums to be listed with them which I actually believe is a big problem for them because they are losing out on potential revenue. PostLoop is the only service I know which offers both forums and blogs. Maybe TheForumWheel will introduce blogs in the future so it is worth trying to contact them

  31. One good thing about writing on sites as paid writers is the prompt response of the admins and if there are lots of complaints against Paid Forum Posting, I don’t think it is worth joining. There is no need joining somewhere you will have issues getting paid after spending your precious time. I won’t recommend Paid Forum Posting for anyone either.

      1. I should be thankful to you for taking your time in reviewing some of these sites. When I started out as a freelancer, I had in mind in joining most of such sites, but reading most of your reviews have given me a new insight on how some of them and the need to avoid some sites as well. I appreciate foe the wonderful work you’ve been doing.
