Right now if you do a search of Google for "free robux" you'll probably be presented with a huge steaming pile of clickbait and scams on the first page. These include deceptive sites, such as free robux generators, which claim to be able to generate robux out of thin air.
Personally I find the most objectionable thing about these websites is that they are clearly targeting very young people, who are more likely to believe them. In this guide I'll explain how to find real sites that will reward you with free robux, and hopefully put some of these scam sites out of business!
Yes, there are websites where it is possible to earn free robux. Later in this article I'll be giving you all the juicy details - so keep reading!
Now, you're probably asking yourself, how is it that a seemingly infallible company like Google can be fooled by scam artists into placing deceptive websites on their first page?
Well, the truth is that Google actually finds it incredibly difficult to rank websites in small niches like this. Google has to prioritise new content, since people are usually searching for fresh information. Scam artists can take advantage of that by creating a pop-up website, which they only intend to run for a few months.
Since they don't care about the long term future of their website they are free to spam backlinks as much as they want. They will usually shoot up to the top of page one in search quite easily.
It's then up to the employees at Google to manually review their scam content and eventually to de-index their website.
Actual Roblox codes are quite rare online because, if you're willing to use a credit card, you can just buy robux on the Roblox website. Therefore online wholesalers don't tend to stock them. This means that there's only three effective ways of getting free robux online:
Ok, so what are points sites? You'll find a few large companies, including PointsPrizes, that allow you to earn points by completing offers such as testing out gaming apps, filling surveys and signing up for various free stuff online. Points can be exchanged for gift codes and other prizes once you have enough saved up.
The key thing to remember here is that these sites don't lie to you about how much effort is involved. Unlike generator sites they will be clear that you're going to have to spend a minimum of several hours completing offers in order to earn enough points.
If you live outside the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia or Northern European countries then it may take you longer. You may even need to supplement your earnings with referral points.
Before using a points site we recommend you verify that they are a registered company. Points sites give away millions of dollars in prizes each year - so it's an obligatory tax requirement that they be registered.
That means they have an actual company number, registered directors and a registered office. They must make their identity publicly accessible, pay taxes and have their annual accounts scrutinized by an accountant.
You can usually verify this by visiting online government registries. For example, here's the PointsPrizes company registration page.
Additionally, you should carry out a whois check to verify where a site's servers are based and how long it has been operating for. Generally speaking, I wouldn't recommend you trust any website that has existed for less than 1 year. The same goes for any online service or marketplace actually.
And lastly do a search for reviews and recent payment proofs so that you can be fairly sure the site is still active and still paying users.
I know all this sounds boring - and it probably is - but you want to make sure a site is real before you commit your time to it!
