Tell-a-friend: The 3 reasons why they work
1. Your site is simply spectacular. Breathtaking graphics, perfect colors, unique and exclusive content, loads in milliseconds etc. etc. If you have such a site, GREAT! You'll get tons of referrals every day (unless your visitors want to keep your incredible site a secret)
3. Your tell-a-friend program is based on incentives or contests. Every time they refer someone they are entered in a contest... the more they refer the greater their chances. This method is extremely effective especially when you give your visitor a chance to see how many visitors they've referred.

I'm getting tired here.
Twice I've written 2 long replies & 1st the electricity ruins things & next the Submit button takes me to a blank page !
Now I'll have to keep it in bullet point short format ; )
Was with 6-7 statpage progs.
Used only 1 actively.
Got 150 or so referrals.
Initially-all active & so got 100-150 hits to my site.
Later between 30-50 & now 15-30.
After about 5000 hits I hardly made 5$.
But then atlast I tweaked so those kinda folks coming could make use of what I provided & voila, had near 100$ in sales that month !
So, in short, you guys are right, most of that traffic is useless, but then what's important is how you use the commonly referred to worthless traffic to earn from them. Just a little creativity would do.
thinkfuture : I just signed at your site, have not completed configuring & stuff.
But just wanted to tell you, it's a very good effort as from what I currently see. I am SURE< if you keep it going well, you could EASILY get funding//additional f... soon from interested firms.
Best wishes on the project.
