what the heck is going on, I had a friend signing up this morning using my ref link and i still haven't gotten my referral bonus.
Also my youtube video is getting a lot of views and my advertising has gotten a lot of sign ups also.
Does it take a lot of time till i see my bonuses? because it's already been over a day.
Your friend must first confirm their e-mail before you'll get your $1 bonus. Then your friend must complete one offer on the offers page before you'll get your $2 bonus. A free/no CC offer would do it. Check the FAQs in the menu at the bottom of this page for info about referral bonuses.
If you look to the left side of your main page under the topic Referrals, you'll find a link entitled 'view referral activity details'. Click on it. There you will see either a red 'X' or a green '$' under the $1, $2, and $5 bonuses. If you see the red 'X', that means your friend has not completed the required task. Contact your friend and let them know their status. I think initially people are a little leery and are reluctant to give out their personal information. They are afraid of getting scammed. I had to coax my referrals a bit before I finally received my $1 and $2 bonuses for the two that did sign up using my referral link. You've got to get those red x's to turn into dollar signs.
Finding someone who will actively work the site and actually cash out to give you the $5 bonus is another matter entirely. 'Oldbuddy' is the master of referrals.
