MEDIA NEXUS – GOOGLE’S NEW WHORE

After Google and TBP parted ways in a blaze of glory back in January, I was able to replace them with some alternatives. Media Nexus was a new company that contacted me by email. My “good buddy” Roy Miller told me we would have a long and fruitful partnership. I added the code for their ads and they’ve been paying me an average of $8 per day for the last couple months based on number of impressions for their ads. I was earning a few bucks and their ads were getting 25,000 impressions per day.

One week ago I received this email from my buddy Roy:

 

Hello Jim,

Attached are your updated tags, these new tags are from our new ad server (Google DFP Premium), once these tags have been updated please let me know via email. Google will be sending you a link, please follow the instructions and register an account in order to view your stats.

 

I immediately saw trouble on the horizon. I responded:

 

Hi Roy

I’m confused by what is happening. Is the old log-in page now obsolete?

Will I still receive the money I’ve earned in April under the old program?

I clicked the doubleclick link to register me at the new site.

Is my partner media nexus or google?

 

Roy’s comforting response was:

 

Hello Jim,

The old login will be obsolete, the revenue earned with that login will be added together with your new earnings and will be paid out on May 7th.

We are still Media Nexus, we are simply using Google’s ad server to deliver our ads and ensure quality. We are two completely separate entities.

 

He told me Media Nexus was just using Google’s server to ensure quality. Isn’t that precious? Shockingly and out of the blue I received this email today:

 

Hello,

Unfortunately after consulting with our demand team, we have to terminate our partnership. We have deemed that there is no demand for your site at this time.

Your April’s earnings will be paid out on May 7th.

However if we do get demand for your site, I will certainly reach out to you. It has been a pleasure working with you.

Best,

 

No more Hello Jim. Just hello and goodbye. I wonder what the old “demand team” saw today that they didn’t see one month ago or two months ago. Oh yeah, Google instructed them to terminate me with extreme prejudice.

 

You probably realize by now that I prefer to burn down bridges when my fruitful business relationships are terminated. My response to my buddy Roy was as follows:

 

Hi Roy

What do you mean by “no demand”? Your ads have been getting 25,000 impression per day. How come it took three months for your demand team to decide this wasn’t enough?

Why don’t you tell me the truth? Google told you to terminate our relationship. Isn’t that true?

One week after you begin a partnership with Google, I’m terminated.

Don’t bullshit me with corporate speak. Your company sold out to Google and now you’re their whore.

 

My good buddy Roy hasn’t gotten back to me yet, but when he does I’ll be sure to pass it on.

 

So it seems my ongoing war with Google is going quite well. I think they will be surrendering any moment now.

 

David versus Goliath?

There certainly is no possibility I get rich from this site and sell out to the man.

If you would like to tell the Media Nexus Whores what you think about them, here is Roy’s email address:

[email protected]

 

I sent Avalon an email complaining that every time it seems like the site will generate a few bucks I get knocked back down. Her compassion knows no bounds as she responded by sending me this video:

    Hilarious, I needed a good laugh…..

    Google, a subsidiary of the NSA….. before long there will be no such thing as web hosting, or the internet for that matter, it’ll be Google and the NSA. As all roads lead to Rome, all web traffic leads to Google and the NSA. Screw the whores.

    Roy is a shortsighted pussy. I’m sure his partnership with google will be very lucrative long term. Reminds me of all those little furniture manufacturers that would sell out to IKEA and get screwed over very quickly.

    We are still Media Nexus, we are simply using Google’s ad server to deliver our ads and ensure they treat us like their little bitch.

    Say Admin, have you tried Commission Junction? And maybe consider swapping your gmail address for yahoo or one of the less NSAy companies. You don’t really want them snooping on your emails, do you?

    Hahaha that is pretty funny.

    It is even funnier that they decided to stop running on your site and now your all angry.
