    I've been with ihookup awhile now and i've converted ok.I just started using them again and they are shaving big time.There even shaving the free signups.I ran the same traffic to another adult affiliate to test if I was right and out of 40 hits i got 4 signups.So that proved to me there shaving hard.If you look at your refferal statistics you will see the big difference.Anybody else getting screwed over by ihookup right now?

    How does that prove they are shaving? 40 hits is not nearly statistical significance. That's like saying you flipped a coin 3 times, and because it came back heads 3 times in a row the coin must be weighted.

    i've been with ihookup for 2 years and know how my traffic converts.4 days ago I got 500 hits and only two free signups.Thats it.Then two days later send the same traffic and get 230 hits and 19 free signups.The days I get no signups I run the traffic to the other adult affiliate and get a bunch of free signups..So they are shaving big time...I didn't have this problem with them in the past.

    If you're using a new network or one that you've not used in a while, it's a good idea to rotate their offers with ones that you currently use, and drop the poor converters.

    You can see it on a small scale too...I've always made $50-80 a day everyday with ihookup.Using the same traffic all the time.Now i'm at $4-20 a day and that isn't shaving?Thats shaving big time...I just want to know if anybody else is having this problem.Its the whole reason I made this account.

    I also ran some other traffic to it too with the same results.I even signed up behind a proxy and never got the free signup.So anybody using them I would love to hear from you...I want to know if its site wide or just my account..If so i'm going with another affiliate.

    I don't like bashing cpa firms, but I do think affiliate.anpremium.com does this, I was with other cpa networks and got around 10 tax leads a day steady 8-14, avg 10, then tried affiliate.anpremium.com and only got 2, then switched back to other network got 9 that day then switched back to anpremium.com and only got 1 and then switched back for good and still getting 8-14 daily from the other network... So that leads me to think not all networks are honest, Oh well, you live and learn... Part of the game I guess

    I'm running completely different traffic today which is all USA and have no signups at all.Looks like i'm going to have to find a honest adult affiliate if that's even possible.

    Dating affiliates paying for free sign ups are mostly shave at all means today in some way.

    ihookup is part of loaded and they started shaving real bad last year. There are many threads regarding their shaving on the forum.

    i can give you my referral to a dating network if interested ( does not shave ). PM me

    I've sent 200 hits today so far and not even one free signup....This is pretty weak...I only need 1 paid signup to get paid too and it looks like there basically going to rob me of my money.

    Well I totally got screwed by ihookup.My $1000 check I was hoping to achieve will now be about $150 if that..Now I think I know why they were shaving.Ihookup and loadedcash are down and i'm wondering if they shut down with no warning.
