    Last month i was there top earner.

    This month i got my relationship terminated for having a low CTR.

    I think its just a way for them to get out of paying me for it.

    Ouch...that's pretty harsh.

    Never heard of Graboid. Thanks for the heads up.

    Yeh i have written them an email.

    If there not going to pay me im prepared to take this to the next level.

    I hate small companies like this.

    But i hope things get resolved well. Im sure there is some accidental email and this isn't correct. Well i hope so.

    I've been using Graboid for quite a while now and have found it to be a pretty good service! It's something that I would recommend.

    I couldn't find much info on their website about an affiliate program though. A search showed a blog post about Commission Junction, but I couldn't find anything about Graboid on CJ either. Is the program still active?

    I stopped using it a few weeks ago.

    They dropped my 90 cent per sign up to 30 cents.

    I said they can stick it.

    30 cents is like less than adsense.

    Just my 22 cents.

    I've earned $328 from Graboid referrals in my first two weeks. Initially they bumped me from $0.70 to $0.91/ referral, now they are terminating the relationship.

    Seems like that is par for the course.

    Feel free to eMail me if you have more info. derek at {no spam} buyinvt.com

    Yeh im not to sure why they do this. It is a sly way to do business.

    I had referred a few thousand customers to them, and they wanted to pay me 30 cents per lead. Which is a joke.

    because from that amount of customers there profits would be throguh the roof!

    I am assuming that Graboid is going to come back with an offer in the $0.30/ referral area. (I will not accept that)

    When they cut me off, I had 62 referrals in 24 hours and had offered to boost that to 100-200 daily if they could increase my referral rate to $1.00/ installation. Quite the rude morning when I read the eMail offering me the reverse.

    Anyhow, where would anybody here suggest I send traffic instead of Graboid. :confused: My traffic comes from people searching for specific TV shows and movie downloads. I just do not want to try a half dozen sites that might not convert.

    My other option is to build a site on one of my TV related domain names that I am doing nothing with at present. (TVDL.info TVDL.biz and TVDL.us) Nothing there, so if you've got an idea, I am game to put something up. (Or sell the url to you) This morning I am spending 20 minutes to see if I can track the source of Graboid's movies. :cool:

    Took me almost 10 minutes to track down the source of 100% of Graboid's movies and TV downloads... Looks like I will be building a "How To" site for my traffic.

    The "How" and "Where" are not important right now. Glad that you are back up to $0.90. (I was at $0.91...???)

    HMM pretty weird i guess. Well i have earnt around $350 this month at 30 cents so i should be close to $1000, old times.

    But my site gets around 50 K uniques a day so its not that good i guess.

    This post is almost a year old. A lot could have changed in that time. Search for some more recent information.

    I've been a graboid affiliate since Sept 2007. I've gotten payed every 30th of each month.

    Two months into the program they raised my referrals from .70 to 1.00 and that's still were it is today.

    As long as your traffic is good (converting) you shouldn't have a problem and can make a lot of money with Graboid. I'm currently making around $4,000 each month just from Graboid.

    DO NOT join graboid! when you earn them lots of money they find every reason possible to not pay you. I've been with them for 4 or 5 months earning them $3000 and they refuse to pay me. DO NOT join graboid.
