    Just to flag up to anyone promoting them, I've logged in and some of my previously live websites were pushed back into test mode. They have done this for 'KPI purposes' - so you could have been sending traffic to a site that won't allow users to convert. They also did not feel the need to inform webmasters of the change.

    On top of that, they have lowered their commission rate - I'm now making what I would for a match.com registration compared to a White Label Dating paid member.

    I've always felt they have a cosy coterie of affiliates at the top and couldn't care less about smaller players, and this illustrates it perfectly. I'm going to give Dating Factory a go, or maybe just adsense, I think I will make more of CPC!

    If anyone has a portfolio of domains that previously worked well on the WLD platform and would like to sell please let me know. Thanks

    I too noticed that they'd lowered their commission rate. How nice of them..

    Did you give Dating Factory a go? Can you clear out your PMs as I tried to message you :)

    WLD definitely pay attention to a select set of affiliates and the reduction in commission recently was ridiculous.
    They have a rule not to have similar brands/names.
    We registered our dismay however when a near identical name to ours appeared on there platform a year later.
    The "We don't want to upset the big player" (their words) was allowed to carry on.

    Moving C a s u a l s dot co dot uk to a new platform shortly
    onwards and upwards :)

    Yes, it was certainly an extreme reduction and it essentially makes dealing with the pointless. Who are you thinking of switching to?

    Don't know your background but a very good friend of mine has built dating sites before, one very well known one too from the ground up so shout if you need any developers.
