Web Traffic Control: Scam or Not?

Recently, I received an email saying that I was qualified for a free account at Web Traffic Control, a website that offered automated advertising for Wordpress blogs. At first, I thought, great! It’s a free offer, so I might as well try it. Then, in the middle of my application, I started to wonder: Is the Web Traffic Control website a scam or not?

web traffic controlI then started to sign up. After I entered my blog information, it asked me to make an editor account on my Wordpress blog. I was about to do that, when it dawned on me that they were basically asking me to let them control my blog.

Wait a minute. Why didn’t they want an author account? An author account can publish blog posts, edit posts that have already been published, and schedule posts. Is that not enough (to think that creating an Author account for a company I’m not familiar with is already scary enough for me)?

Apparently, the Web Traffic Control website needs an Editor account on Wordpress to create new categories. Shouldn’t they just ask me to create new categories for them instead of asking me to just hand over my blog?

I balked. I shied away from the, um, “free” account given me. I’m sure that it’s just some marketing scheme they thought of to make signing up seem more enticing.

Actually, Web Traffic Control promised that their minimum price for each paid post on your blog is $15. Hm, not bad, which is why I started to sign up in the first place.

Perhaps Web Traffic Control is not a scam. Or maybe it is. But I’ll never really know until something happens to prove either point. In any case, I was too scared to tweak my Wordpress blog and give them almost full control of it, just for $15 blog posts. The Trinket Princess would rather get paid $5 for each post as long as nobody messes with my blog’s settings.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm
assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
