    Hi there!

    We have a couple links on http://www.LesbiansClick.com from Commission Junction.

    We have had 104 hits on our link for Metrodate. Our balance is still $0.00 - We are supposed to get $1.50 per lead. That is every time someone puts up a profile.

    Our conversion rate on our other dating affilaite links is always better than 1:10 - With FriendFinder we get a 1:3 conversion.

    We're starting to wonder if perhaps we did not set up the links correctly.

    Would someone be willing to go to http://www.LesbiansClick.com dating category to look at our Metrodate link?

    We would really appreciate it!!

    Don't know if this is the cause (dating is not related to my sites, so...), but I couldn't find the 1x1 pixel that comes with the code (it wasn't around the text of link in the html, if it's somewhere else on the page, I missed it).

    That code is required, but I don't think it's absence should fail to record a sale... more likely target your site for "fraudulaent" activity -- clicks/sales with no impressions.

    Check your transaction report - a Metrodate lead will show up on the report with the $1.50 commission.
    Check their EPC figures on CJ - less than one dollar per hundred clicks. I've got a dating page that gets a higher EPC of about $4 but still makes almost nothing... I just don't thing dating is a money maker.
    Anyone else got good/poor results with dating ads?

    Hi, Spiderman...

    We have done well with a few dating sites.

    http://www.Dreammates.com has been the best and most reliable. They pay $1.00 per free profile posted. Our conversion rate is about 1:10. They are very punctual with mailing commision checks.

    http://www.FriendFinders.com gives us the best conversion rate... 1:3. They pay $2.00 per free female profile posted. Unfortunately, they have not been as consistent or reliable with payment.

    We used to do well with http://www.LavaLife.com , but we think they changed the way they do their statistics. Our conversion rate has really dropped these past two months.

    Can these be put on a semi-adult site? I have a "dating" message board that I have no porn on, but people sometimes post links to porn or will even post a pic of themselves that is more than R rated.

    Ck, I believe they have an adult friend finder. Click Below unless they have a 2 tier and someone has an affiliate link.


    Friend Finder

    Hi CK --

    Here are a couple of sites I found when I was doing research for our dating site. I haven't checked them out yet, haven't had time, but one or two may be what you are looking for. Check them out carefully though 'cause I don't know anything about them other than they offer adult personals affiliate programs.

    iwantu-personals.com - they have some strange commission schedule, I couldn't figure it out.
    swingtowns.com - may be a little too risque for your site, they pay weekly - b/w $10-$20 a registration
    adultmates - pays 10%

    We just started up our site so I can't vouch for their payment history, but like Paula, we've had good success with Dreammates so far. They may be good for your site b/c they have a special chat room area for "intimate encounters". We have done okay with Friend Finder too, but not as well as with Dreammates.

    Best of luck,

    Paula;

    If I'm not mistaken, CJ does not do pay per click or pay per lead anymore. I think they stopped about 3 months ago. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]
