TNX Pissed Me Off

Not too long ago I wrote a TNX Review. What would draw in any advertiser is the low cost of links. PR 3 links run as low as 200 points which is only 26 cents! Do you realize how little you are selling your links for?

Advertising is a Pain

This system would be great for advertisers to get tons of links for cheap, if it was easy. I’ve had a lot of problems, with a very unhelpful staff. Since there is no support system via email you must take it live or through the forum.

My problem (which can be viewed here) was that several of the websites I had purchased links from weren’t displaying them. Support kept telling me to wait and so I did. Before my monthly link expired I checked the websites again. Only 2 of 8 websites were displaying the links. Apparently I must be blind because the support said “I found pretty much all websites displaying your link.” I didn’t know invisible links existed. Now that my thread is closed “Alex” the support has changed his mind and said “all websites did display your link.”

Funny how things change.

TNX Points Giveaway

I did secure a refund and have no intention of using them again. I would have to be given a lot of free points and I don’t see that happening.

I currently have 2,400 points, but only 1200 available for transfer. I figure I could give 6 people 200 points, which means a free pr3 link. All you have to do is leave a comment about your experience with TNX. I am interested in hearing how you like them and would love your input on the support problem in question.

    Oh, thanks for the reminder for TNX. I too did a review and but I did it for credits instead of money as a genuine desire to understand how their marketplace worked. But I never did get around to spending my credits but seeing your review, I might just have to cash out and sell it back to the system. I wonder how much they are worth now…

    Anyways, I found you through Entrecard, so I am one of the few that reads ;)

    Much of the TNX “hype” were sponsored posts (at least what I read), so generally you get a positive spin. I gave it an okay review, but as you can see my experience now hasn’t been the best

    A while back I did a review of TNX as well. I also did one of their past offers on Digital Point Forums to get a free starting 2,000 points – I never bought any. I spent those on some advertising and, to be honest, never went back to the site to check how things went. However, wouldn’t the links show up in my Technorati? They never did.

    Same here. I spent all my points on November and only saw few links. I am not happy at all with TNX as for now and probably will close my account there…

    I bought quite a few links with them and pointed the links to pages in supplemental. It didn’t work.

    Google probably can tell they’re bought from the fact the links are always in the sidebar or footer.

    If you want to get pages out of supplemental you’re better off getting the links naturally or from a few really strong sites.

    I got them to give me 20k points an I think they are worth 69c now. Given that my blog was a PR 0 at the time and not much readership, I treated it like a PPP. 10-15 bucks, whatever :)
