Is Docstoc.com Adsense Revenue Share Scam or Legitimate? A Personal Review
Wondering whether Docstoc.com Adsense Revenue Share is a scam or legitimate program? Continue reading this article so as to know whatever you might be interested in knowing. Docstoc.com is a an online electronic document storage, sharing and repository Adsense Revenue Sharing website where members can upload documents like PDF, Word Doc and others in addition to uploading videos and other resources in the different categories including but not limited to financial, legal, business, make money, web design, forms and many others as per individual choice.
Creating an account or becoming a member of Docstoc.com is free for all although one is required to go premium if he or she planning to sell his or her uploaded documents, and which is a paid plan.
For those who are willing to offer their uploads as sharing and or to simply download their preferred documents, there is no need for a premium package and all one needs is to register an account and start uploading/downloading his or her documents and that is the one fact I love on the site.
When it comes to the issue of Adsense Revenue Sharing, Docstoc claims to be a 50/50 revenue sharing website and being an Adsense partner site of which is true since during the linking process, a member is requested to grant Docstoc.com access to his or her Adsense account just like any other Hosted revenue share site works.For a new member, you are given an option to link your Adsense account during sign up and which later you can change assuming you want to use a different account other than the one you added during sign up.

The BIG question comes when it comes to getting impressions and earnings on Docstoc.com by a member who has linked his or her Adsense account. Basing on my personal experience as a member of the site (my account now closed under my own request), having linked my Adsense account first time before even making an upload and having too uploaded a few documents (now deleted from storage by myself) which had some good traffic, what I can share is the fact that I never earned a single cent on the site, a single view and not even a single impression for the whole week I was a member.
On my Docstoc.com account settings, I could see well a message showing how my Adsense was linked and the site being a 50/50 Revenue sharing, I could at least see a few impressions from my Adsense account and which I never did. Four days down the road, I tried the source code option while reloading my documents pages but never found my Adsense PUB attached to the site apart from the PUB which I believe that did belong to the site itself.
What I wonder up to now is whether the sites revenue sharing feature is legitimate or scam and basing on my own findings, you can be able to tell out the answer by your own self from the above. Thinking that thus happened to me only, check out this thread on Google Forums.
