    I've been doing adult dating as affiliate for quite some time.
    At the end of last year I've had enough of Adult Friend Finder's shaving and moved to SexSearch. For about 5 months now my traffic is consistently converting around 1/150, one in every 150 visitors I send to them converts to free sign up. So I think I'm doing my job pretty well. From here on was their job to convert this free sign ups to paid ones. Here goes the interesting part. First month they converted 1/5 free sign up to paid membership. Second month was 1/6 third 1/10 and the last full month March it was 1/14. Speaking in $$$ values a visitor to Sexsearch site I sent in Dec was worth 9 cents now it's worth 3 cents.
    I read on another thread that a guy was saying that he is getting good money from adult friend finder but he just started 2 weeks ago.
    I have the suspicion that affiliate programs are honest the first two months while you are still building actively promotions and then they start to SHAVE when you are lazy to go through all your promotions and change affiliate codes and so on. When you call them they start to bullshit you to use another "better creative" faking that they don't understand that the problem is not you and not the traffic you are driving.
    Has anyone of you guys tried to make new affiliate account every 2-3 months and see if things go better.

    Dude..my traffic is 1:18 (on a reaaaaal goooood day!! - otherwise it averages on 1:28) so just be happy you were getting 9 cents lol. Fuk I'd be happy to convert with 5 cents per click.
    And yes you're right ..they're good until they figure they can earn a little bit extra off you as you'll still keep pushing traffic. That's just the name of the game. If you wanna do the same you should start your own adult-thing HEHE ;)
