    Hey guys, signed up with Dating Gold and got 100 uniques in a few hours from my dating site, but NO sign ups at all!

    Have any of you heard of this?

    Am I being scammed or is people simply not signing up?

    Doesnt seem right though, at least one should sign up for free out of one hundred yeah?

    I actually had about 28 uniques, and made $18.00 from AMatch.....

    Dunno what's goin on?!

    People probably aren't signing up.....

    If it's a common dating site, they've probably seen that before.... Everyone online is good at noticing ads....

    It really depends on the type of traffic... how are you sending clicks? I worked there a long time ago

    Dating gold is a very reputable site. I doubt highly they are scamming you. 100 uniques is very little, and it is much harder to convert adult programs than it was a few years ago.
    Conversion rate depends greatly on your traffic source. It could range from 1 conversion in 20 uniques to 1 in 10,000.
    Either way you look at it 100 uniques is very little.

    Clicks are being sent pure and clean by their own banners, so the traffic should be somewhat targeted yes?
    Otherwise guys, I had 600 unique visitors on my 5 day of being up, can you recommend some affiliate, ANY NICHE, that always converts just somewhat. Maybe one with free gift?
    Thanks

    It still depends on your traffic. Even if its banner clicks, are they US visitors? What country are they from? What type of site is the banner on, where does that site get its visitors, there are a lot of factors to consider what normal conversions would be. Try the same amount of clicks to hugetraffic and see if there is a difference.

    It is funny this should come up because I have noticed recently how guys dont be seem to be converting. I have been positive that 3 leads were confirmed and done the other day and not one of them showed. They always were real good with me and I used to send a lot their way, but it really did grate on me the other day....

    Yes I want to be sure! I just cant understand why noone would sign up, after all, its not like they are tricked there, its all upfront and FREE. You would think that one in 100 would spend 1 min filling out the form just out of curiosity?

    .... Honestly you should try using the landing page that's not dirty....

    If it's a dating site, use the one with the 20yr old guy & girl.... not chicks spreading their legs and shit....

    ...that's pry why

    Boosey, the whole thing is clean, no nudity and different links and landing pages. The thing is, when people click the banner they know what to expect, thats what i dont understand.

    For me, the ratio of free leads to uniques ranges between 1:3 to 1:11. Overall it averages out to 1:4.

    Your traffic is probably not targetted enough, or your landing page needs to be better. But 100 uniques is not that much traffic to make a judgement on. Drive more traffic, then work on diagnosing the problem.

    How are you sending traffic?

    You should provide some more info on your traffic, because that seems to be the case

    It's your traffic... DatingGold is legit. My Brother works over there on their other site webcamclub.

    They usually convert fairly well however they are an established site and they have been "seen" a lot from users already.

    Depends what you are after... DG is about the only decent site I know that pays on "frees" or "leads".

    If you are looking Per Sale I would probably steer off to PimpMansion or LoadedCash. Roger at Pimpmansion will hook you up with a decent bump if you send good traffic and so will AJ at LoadedCash.

    No Doubt it's your traffic. I used to make $3700 mo with them on autopilot. I once switch my traffic to to YOUTUBE and it took 4-5 times as much traffic to make the same amount. It's the quality of the traffic. What sources are you using maybe I can give you advice on monetizing it.

    Cashdummy,

    Its traffic that could go to porn or erotica but end here.

    I am new in this, but could you give a tip on how to get dating traffic?

    Many thanks!
