    Hey Scout,

    This post used traffic data from January. At the time, Madbid’s rank may not have been that high, or we just missed them.

    Thanks for pointing them out to us.

    I think Scout was just being sarcastic, since you listed 10 highest traffic not the 10 lowest traffic. I mean at 27,217 in ranking, and the 10th on your list is Bidfire, Madbid could not even, and does not, come close. So, don’t apologize, you did great with your information. Keep it coming and keep up the great work.

    Wait a minute, I think I messed up. I was reading the info wrong. Please, forgive me :).

    Thanks for your contributions. The words “highest” and “lowest” should have been clarified better on our end.

    Hope to see more comments from you in the future!

    Give it a month or two and I’m sure BidOnCash will be listed on the top 10 list.

    Btw, I think you should do a monthly review of the high traffic sites..

    I don’t think there’s much to see on this list aside from swoopo and beezid. madbid is uk based.

    I’m curious what the listing requirements are for the penny auction traffic site. I am aware of quite a few sites that are not listed on it. Since they are showing the dead (RIP) sites you would also think that they would show all the “little” guys??

  10. fireforge June 29, 2010 at 9:45 am #

    I like Bidpigs question, if the sites are RIP why are they on here

    I don’t know about sites, but I recommend anyone interested in playing penny auctions to go to http://ProtoProtoss.net and view those. That powerbidder guy blogs there and list the sites he wins and receives his items from.
