Referrals: 114 tracked clicks & 5 new non active users signed up

Are they opening a new window? - I tracked my referral link. 114 clicks and only 5 non-active referrals acquired.

Yesterday I published for the first time my referral url and and I have been tracking its clicks because I created several redirecters. You can createthem in seconds at http://notlong.com. I hope you like this idea that many of you I know are still unaware of. There has been a total of 114 clicks or visits to mylot to my referral link and a total of 5 referrals added in these last two days, not active at all. Although I am not giving up for now because it has been only 2 days, my question is, are these people opening another mylot window and signing up or they are not interested? All opinions will be highly respected in advance.

Hey people I want to update you. In 4 days I got 29 referrals in total! Yesterday they made more money than me and for me. Average of 7 per day. I have to keep going like this. I promise soon I will make a discussion on how to do this.

Thats really a good piece of information and I was looking for this to track for a long time. Abt your queries please note that there are many ppl who does not want to join through a referral link as they dun want others to arn from their effort. So cool u try as much as u can and do not expect any result. Finally u wl b surprised to see that ur referral are really earning for you.

Thanks for the link. I think a lot of people just aren't interested. If everyone was there would be a LOT more members on here!

at the moment i have 44 refferals but theyve only earnt me like 70cents! the referral thing is tricky. firstly its hard to direct people to your link, then you have to trust them to sign up under you, and then they have to be actually active!! getting good referrals is very hard!

This is a good lead for many of us to follow. We have been crying out for more referrals all the time. This may be one of the solution to getting referrals. Do you mean that after we have created the short urls, the notlong.com site will publish them for us? I am not too clear on that.

Well, I think that not everyone is interesting in this until they actually do try it out. So, maybe they are not into it right now and maybe they will be later.

I think it's important that you tell them what you'll get if they sign in, not that they loose anything and things like that, also that they have advantages to be your friend. Explain the system a bit maybe, it can offcourse be hard that they found your link in a signature or something..but don't give up, 114 links is way too good! :)

Well as you must know that 99% of online earning opportunities are scams and I have been in this line for about 6 years and have been scammed numerous times, I have gained a lot of experience and believe me I did come across myLot once when it had around 5k users and thought of signing up but then again the feeling re-occured and I left the website when the e-gold registration failed and then finally one day I just thought I would give it a go and here I am now :) So my point is that it takes sometime for some people to trust a source and believe me I have even trouble convincing my real life friends about myLot but I do know one thing and that is when I have the cash in my hand and show them, they will certainly sign up!

I, for one, do not follow refferals. I don't know why. Even to this site, I've got from a link on a blog (sorry, for whoever's blog it was), but opened a new window to make a registration. I don't like the idea to be anybody's refferal. I know it's stupid and silly and I would like other people following my refferal link, but I am feeling different about that.
