    I signed up to adult date link (ADL) today and switched aload of methods from cash university over to them to see how I did.

    Things are going pretty well but...Ive been tracking the amount of traffic ive sent to them today through a bit.ly link thats hidden in a blog redirect and I make it about 160 minus a few of my clicks, but on the ADL site its claiming that ive only sent them 46 clicks, of which about half have converted.

    Now I know there is a slight delay as bit.ly is real time but its not that long as I made a conversion within an hour of switching to ADL.

    What are everyone elses experiences with adult date link? Do you think they have shaved over 50% of the traffic I have sent to them? I cant really believe they would do it this way, surely they would just show the clicks but not the conversions?!

    they only accept traffic from certain countries.
    they also shave a bit on the free signups (I saw this when I was switched to revshare, the stats suddenly changed...) but it's not really much. they're a decent company, specially good for niche dating.

    They may put you on revenue share program soon since your free to paid signup ratios will be very low.I'm not sure about adl though but aff does it.

    I stopped using it before I got to $40 as I dont think the traffic will convert. Hopefully they will still pay me this.

    Any other suggestions on how to monetize the traffic? It's from a porn site already. I was thinking of setting up some sort of site where they fill in a survey in order to get to see some photos or something, or perhaps promise them a free cam linka fter a download of a flv player? TIps much appreciated.

    You have to keep 1 1:40 paid to free ratio there as what Colin said in his exact words.

    So you should be good at $40. I always was.

    I mean NONE have converted though so do you think Colin will still pay me? If he does then i'll put another days of traffic through next week to get another 40! Surely he will switch me soon enough if I just keep sending email sign ups that dont convert, or do you think I will stay under the radar as such!?

    I have been using them and 2 other companies consistently for the last few years.
    I run the occasional test and they always pay.
    I have total confidence in them.
    If anybody has any questions, please feel free to hit me up on pm and ask.

    I rotate my biller pages and ADL is one of them. Ive never had any problems. On average Ill do a 1:3 free join ratio and do around 1:25 for a sale. They have always payed me and so I always look forward to getting that check.

    ADL counts uniques on the 2nd page of their join form, not first page.
