Conversion Rate in Dating Industry
Wondering what rate can be considered resonable when tracking user signups

 6:08 pm on May 18, 2005 (gmt 0)

Greetings Guys!

I've got a dating site doing adwords. It's been out there for three months, though it uses conversion tracking for the first time this month. It tracks signups and the stats show 3.5%

I wonder what conversion rate can be considered reasonable with this kind of sites.

I'd be very grateful to those who could share their experience and thoughts.

Thanks in advance!

For free signups that is about average, just depends on the keywords, the segment the site targets, whether the site has a recognizable brand, and how recognized that brand is.

On paid signups for dating susbcriptions, we've been getting an average of just under 1% over the last 12 months.

^Sounds about average for the bigger sites.

Seems to me you are doing well. I need to work some on mine to get to those.

Bigger sites do better.

My small site converted so poorly (to the paid option), that I made it all free and focused on Adsense instead.

Have made more money with Adsense than with the paid option.
