Xomba Referral Link Issue

    I noticed one of my hubs had a broken link and upon inspection, I saw that it was my referral link for Xomba.

    I couldn't find any info on the Xomba website about losing the referral system, and I haven't noticed anyone here talking about it.

    I was just wondering if it is gone or just moved.  Has anyone had similar issues?

    Thanks for your time.

      Yes I had the same happen not that long ago. I just assumed they have stopped their referral program - either that or I have been booted off the site seeing as I haven't written anything at all for them since they changed their format.

        I'm still on the site, just no referral link anymore, and no information anywhere (that I've found) mentioning referral links at all.  Which is a shame because I know I was getting signups for both there and SheToldMe.

      Xomba discontinued their referral program when they changed their revenue share formula to 60/40.

        Thanks for the heads up! I must not have gotten the memo.

    Xomba were dropping out of the "content farm" game the last I heard and taking the site in a diff direction.

      Yeah it looks like they're going in a News-oriented direction.  They still allow you to add your AdSense code in, but as I said, I don't see any mentions of referral benefits anymore.
