Wordlinx Review – Description:

WordLinx is 12 years old PTC program where members can get paid to visit advertisers links and get rewarded for referring others to the site. It is one of the oldest PTC sites, still online and paying. The site is owned and managed by Rogue Media, a UK based company. Wordlinx appears to be a reliable PTC service with a solid reputation among PTC users. Therefore it will be placed on our Established list.

Things we do like about Wordlinx.com:

Long-Standing Site – WordLinx has been online since October 2003, more than 12 years. It is one of oldest paying PTC Sites and has been recognized as genuine advertising service.

Paying on time – WordLinx is paying its members according to their terms. On the links below you can find payment proofs from other users:
Payment Proofs on Wordlinx Forum
Wordlinx Payment Proofs page
Payment Proofs on eMoneyspace Forum
Payment Proofs on Talkptc Forum

Instant Payments – Payments (below $100) are processed instantly after request. This is a great option, you will receive your payment within seconds of request.

Unlimited Affiliate Program – There is no limit to the number of people that you can refer to the site and this is excellent opportunity for members who can refer a lot of new members. If you manage to build big and active downline, then you will earn extra money with no hard additional effort.

Free Worldwide Service – No restrictions, WordLinx is free to join for people from all over the world. There is no need to buy membership in order to receive payment.

Buxenger Supported Site โ€“ Buxenger is a free desktop software that helps you organize, monitor and view ads from your numerous PTC website accounts. With Buxenger you can view all your accounts statistics and overall summary in one screen, view ads from all accounts and also create new accounts on multiple websites at the same time.

Forum – They have a forum. In our opinion, a PTC site should have a forum. The forum is a place where members and staff can communicate with each other. Members can post their success stories or doubts, post payment proofs, share the experience that they had with the site, ask for support and stay informed about the recent changes made to the site. Usually, on the forum you can notice the first signs if something is wrong. If members complain about non-payments or payment delays, then most likely the site is experiencing problems.

Downsides – Things to Pay Attention to:

Pre-View Adverts – Basic members are now shown non-paid ads before paid ads to encourage them to upgrade. Every pre-view ad lasts 10 seconds. If Basic members wish to remove pre-views they can exchange points weekly in the store. Although advertisers may get better exposure with the preview ads, members don’t earn anything by viewing the preview ads. Basically members are forced to view these ads before they can view paid ads. Wordlinx is supposed to be Paid to Click site, not Preview to Click site.

Personal Ad Click Earnings Required for Cashout – In order to cashout for the first time, all users must earn at least $5.00 from their own clicks and then at least $0.50 from their own clicks for all subsequent cashouts. If you are a promoter that can bring a lot of direct referrals and if you donโ€™t like this forced activity rule, then Wordlinx may be not the right site for you.

Very few Earning Features -It should be noted that besides the PTC ads and the referral program, there are no other earning features for users. If they had additional earning features, users could earn more and faster, also the site would have additional income streams.

High Minimum Cashout – Although the minimum cashout is fixed at $10 and does not increase after each cashout, it may be hard to reach this amount, especially if you are solely clicking on your own, without referrals under you.

Number of ads – The ads are geo-targeted. If you are not from North America or Western Europe, most likely you will get less advertisements. Also, the ads are added throughout the day. If you don’t see any now, there may be some later.

Wordlinx Review – Final Thoughts:

WordLinx is a pay-per-click advertising system which has been online and paying since 2003. It has gained good reputation in the PTC industry over the years. In our opinion, Wordlinx is a safe site to use and earn with, however there are some cashout restrictions in place, personal click earnings are required for each cashout (refer to the downside section above). Wordlinx pays its users once they meet the cashout requirements, but it may not be the right site for big promoters that rely mostly on their referrals earnings.

  1. Very funny site for me. I was never able to reach $10 minimum cashout balance. The site has only clicking options to earn and I didn’t had any direct referrals. I wasted months clicking ads, such a waste of time.
    The main problem is, even if I recruit some referrals they will obviously stop clicking because of low earnings. A PTC site need to have multiple methods of earning money so that new members can check for Payments as early as possible.
    The most confussing matter is that why an old site like WordLinx never thought of adding more earning ways to their site.

  2. Legit P

    stable ptc site with many ways to earn money

  3. ori

    I finally reached $10 in balance.
    How can I cashout in this site?
    I couldn’t find how. The option to cashout is either not exists or very well hidden…

    • ori

      Ok – I found it and got paid instantly.

  4. Jackchun

    A good site for both clicking ads and traffic exchange.



    Sir, I have rejoined your site recently , I am not getting ads to click and view.

  6. Very stable PTC Site with excellent 5 level affiliate program. The problem is, you can only earn money from viewing ads and referral commission. It’s hard to cash out without DRs because of the high payout threshold.



  8. Please join me at Wordlinx.

  9. niteowll01

    No ads to browse for the few days? Is that normal?

    • The menu of Wordlinx has changed. Paid ads and traffic exchange are now located on their “Rewards” tab.

  10. I think wordlinx is enough reliable to get payout here and nothing problem significantly

  11. Noemon72

    I got paid a couple of days ago.
    Wordlinx is getting much more interesting, but should plan carefully not to fall part.

  12. Noemon72

    Admin, watch out for Wordlinx in the coming weeks.
    I invested 120$ and I have been trying to cash out around 30$ for about 2 weeks
    and the system always says it has reached cashout limit.
    The rented referrals did not give any profit and the interface is too difficult to deal
    with to recycle and probably you will lose further money if you do it.
    I have been trying to cashout many times a day.
    And I am a Pro member.
    I contacted them in FB and still nothing.
    They say in their FB page that they deposit only a little money in their account for system stability
    but this reminds me of statements of scam sites before they exploded.
    While it still is one of the best places to advertise, I think something went wrong
    with their experimentation and new features and I hope they figure it out before they crash.
    Too many changes in a very short time can not be good.

  13. Wordlinx are stable PTC sites, but I think must clicks more ads without have direct reff

  14. Justin Miller

    Hello ๐Ÿ™‚ , please help me, have a quick question, only hope I’m asking it correctly and clearly. If I read the comment correctly, someone said that the only way to cashout is if $5 worth of the $10 minimum is from your own clicks. Is that right? I am a unverified user, I have 20 rented referrals and my balance is adding up quite speedily each day. Does that mean when I reach $10 I can’t cashout because my personal clicks have not added up to $5 ?

  15. muumiin

    Could you review Viru5? Some say that it has the same admin as wordlinx but on many websites it says it’s a scam… I’m confused…

  16. WordLinx also works well not everyone
