To give you an idea of ad revenue

18 satoshis = $0.0001678453
49 satoshis = $0.0004569122
That means if you claim the max amount each time, you still earn one third of what I pay out. You can also only claim once every 20 minutes.
Average claim is 290 satoshis apparently. That equals $0.0026992113 which is more than what I pay out (2 times) however they have 11 ads on their site (compared to my 4), allow 1 claim every 15 minutes and are in a higher paying ad network (Mellowads) that only allow sites in the top 200000 in Alexa to join. You can claim 3 times on my faucet for every once on there so in total you could earn $0.0039 on my faucet which is 0.13 cents more.

Less than ClaimBTC and still a claim time of once every 10 minutes.
There is a list here - http://ifaucet.net/bitcoin/browser/
You will see the payouts on page 1 of 4 range from 500 satoshis to 88. The higher paid ones typically allow you to claim only once per day or with a long gap between claims made possible by ad networks mainly rewarding for unique impressions meaning that allowing 1 high claim a day will usually be cheaper and more profitable than allowing multiple smaller claims where users will typically end up claiming more than that amount of satoshis when you combine the daily earnings of the user.
Many also have min withdrawal limits... in some cases high limits, have questionable annoying ads. One I looked at seemed to be closed now. Taking 100 satoshis which is a pretty common payout on that first page, that equals $0.0009372138 per claim. That is 0.03-0.04 of a cent less that what I pay. There is potentially some withdrawal fees to contend with.
Ultimately I could flood the site with ads or alter claim times to heavily restrict your max earnings a day to less that what a handful of claims today is worth. Ultimately I would rather allow users to earn a decent amount if they put the time in an give users a pretty clean ad experience and no popups and fund the gap between the lack of advertising income and the payouts. Baring in mind a typical PTC ad earns you 0.1 cents aswell, the time to earning ratio is pretty much the same.
There is not many sites in this sector that are created with the intention for the owner to make a loss every day the site is active. Faucets are slow earners and trust me, a handful of claims on my faucet in an hour is more profitable (in 99% of cases) than spending an hour claiming on another faucet.
Frustrating yes but that is how these type of sites operate... with minimal income. Sustainability and financial control is what keeps good sites online like ForumCoin.com for many years where others have failed. Some sites start off paying high amounts and then close soon after because they have no money left. Smart people like Fergal and me control the finances and make controlled losses. In other words Fergal loses money running FC and I lose money running ForumCoin.win but the losses are sustainable but do give other benefits in exchange for these losses. Fergal has a community and content which has high financial value in exchange for his high losses. I have the ability to promote and keep the FC community more active by giving another reason for users to join or stay active on ForumCoin which is a site I pretty much volunteer to help run and that is in exchange for my small financial loss to support my hobby. That is the reason I gave out $15 on Christmas day to members here. Yes it is a financial loss to me but that serves as a factor to please and keep our members aswell as attract new ones. There comes a point though were making a loss of a certain degree is not really in proportion with the benefits.
Basically what I am saying is that end users like yourself want to make as much money as you can which I fully understand however we are the ones that have to fund it and if we are paying our own money to pay you, we need to get sufficient non financial benefits in return as we don't have bottomless pits of money. I have a saying (not sure if I actually made it up or if it already exists) that I have used many times on this site. 100% of something is better than 100% of nothing. Chasing higher paid sites might seem good but really these sites are badly planned and thought out and in reality the chances of seeing any returns is quite low. A stable low earner can end up being more profitable. ForumCoin and my faucet are planned out well and financially supported and are stable earners. Not going to make you rich and certainly not going to make us rich but both will probably survive longer than 90%+ of the sites promoted/referenced here that may seem more profitable.
It can be easily increased however there are downsides. If you make a claim and go off and do something else and comeback 9 minutes later, you can claim again. If the gap between claims is set to 10 minutes, you would come back and not be able to claim and therefore go off a again and not come back again for a while or until the next day meaning you lose a claim. 5 minutes is quite good as it is short meaning the thought of claiming may not stray too far in your mind and typically if you do forget for a short while and come back to it, it is almost always possible for you to claim again.Collinberg wrote:CyberFreak,please is there any way to increase the claim time? The give minutes is low especially when am multitasking,because of the 5mins timer,I have to be there but with a longer timer,I could claim,do other things I have in mind and when it's time to claim again,I cone back to claim again
