So, I also need an upline for this program, in case someone is already in:

I am a member for quite sometime. I became member for their affiliate program, but didn't get any advertiser to sign up.

I'd be glad if you can use my link: http://www.planet-traffic.com/?5006

I'd like to test their advertising options too, but may be later because most of my programs are for India only and are offline opportunities.

Are you sure your referral link is correct? Because it seems incorrect from the PHP point of view..
Variables and values go in pairs.. The (?) symbol indicates that a variable set will follow in the form of:

Code (html):
http://www.ptcbox.me?variable=value

etc.

Code (html):
http://www.ptcbox.me?refid=12345

One can then add multiple variables by concatenating them with the symbol (&) like this:

Code (html):
http://www.ptcbox.me?refid=12345&username=bla&email=bla@bla.com


So, I think your link is not valid.. can you double check it?
Btw, I also can't seem to find the register link anywhere on the site..  :o
Could you point me to it?

Hey SS, how about you join under me in Planet Traffic? Be fair! Spread it out! After all I've done in the forum. Ok? ;)

Also, I'm in YOUR downline in some of the program. And I don't think Venkat is in your downline in any of the programs? ;)

I've also made more than 3x posts than Venkat in the forum!  ;)

SS,

For a long time, venkat wasn't even hanging out in the forum. He only started showing up a little lately only cause you kept asking him questions about Leadsleap (i.e. $2.56 in 6 months? please!).

Now, all of a sudden you're going to join under him in the different programs? ::)

[edit]-Merged posts by SolidSnake-[/edit]

Another thing is that you could have given us an advance notice. For a while there, there wasn't much happening in the forum. So I was thinking maybe just logging in once or twice a day would be sufficient.

All of a sudden, you posted all at once, asking if you could join in their downline in about 5 different programs. And I didn't have a chance to read them yet. After all I've done in the forum! ;)

Although some of the blame goes to SS for allowing this to happen to begin with!

I know of many other forum owners, including some successful net marketers, that would not have allowed this to happen to begin with!

That's ok Dan, I haven't joined yet, so I'll join under you on Planet-Traffic, please post your referral link here.

@Venkat, Sorry about it, but it's Dan turn for this one since I joined under you on GPM and if I decide to get in Leadsleap in the future I'll also join under you there, so it's more fair for the team this way.  :dontknow

Ok, I'm going to be joining under Venkat and SS could join under me. This way everyone wins. I'm also going to send the program owner a support ticket, asking about the referral link, making sure it's working and all. I'll keep you posted.

I didn't expect this twist.  :cool1

By the way, the referral link is the same as I copied and pasted from my profile. (I can't make sure whether it works, but I am sure it's what displays on my profile there.)

Here is the screenshot of my planet-traffic account.

Anyway, I joined, can you check if I'm in your downline?

If you did not have any affiliates before, then I should be your first.

I contacted their support.

Yes, I joined through this link:

Then I clicked on the "Affiliate Program Earn

I just did as instructed in the support ticket that I sent to him even before I joined:

If you haven't showed up in Venkat's downline, I really doubt this works..

It's actually not how it is supposed to work from the programming point of view since we're talking about PHP..

On the other hand, it's not impossible to implement, however if they actually made it to work like this, it could even prove to be a vulnerability for the site's security..

You can see how the ticket tracking is correctly set up: ?track=DMN-N5G-AU3B
..as it follows the proper pattern: ?key=value

The proper way is to capture the "key" as the variable name and then collect the "value" that is assigned to it, and use them in the code.

If they pass the value as a key, it would be easy for a hacker to pass "something fishy" in the system this way and use it as a tool to extract information.. and it should be concerning because the site requests a lot of sensitive info such as the address and phone number of the user.  :-/

Let's just wait for their reply to the ticket..

SS,

Would you be willing to join under me in a different program to make up for it?

If you want, you could still also try to join under Venkat in Planet Traffic?

If they confirm it works I will join under you in Planet-Traffic..

Since they can find this thread through their support system, I should bring this to their attention for security purposes..
Taking it one step further, in testing how the PT referring system works, take a look at this..:

When the link is: http://www.planet-traffic.com/?5006

The string of characters passed after the questionmark (?) gets parsed and then saved to a variable called id that is hidden in the registration form and will act as an input for the referrer field in the database.

So, after testing a few patterns to see how the unwanted characters are dropped out there is a pattern that escapes the check which for example can be the following..:

http://www.planet-traffic.com/?(5006)OR(1)OR(2)OR(3)...

In this case I could enter an unlimited number of IDs and it seems to be passing the checks before being saved as the id variable value.
So, if one opens the following link and proceeds to the registration page the id variable will show up like this :



As you can see the whole pattern has been saved as the referrer's id and if one proceeds to register the system will probably add that line to a database query that normally looks for the id of the referrer and assigns it to the referral or the opposite (assigns the referral to the referrer).

My point is that if this isn't prevented by further security checks the referral will end up joining in up to everyone's downline blowing up the system..

I haven't tried it because I don't want to mess anything up, I'm just bringing it up for the admin to notice and check it as a potential danger of the site.

Title: Re: I need an upline for Planet-Traffic.com
Post by venkat on 21st Jun, 2016 at 6:00am
In that case the query would fetch and return the first matching row / value and place the new joining person under that referrer. Is that correct?

Sebas says something about cookies. What will happen if someone has disabled cookies in browser?

If the link is not working as we doubt, again even if SS signs up with my link it's going to be the same. So we have to make sure if the link works. If it works, SS can very well use Dan's link.

If the link is not working as we doubt, again even if SS signs up with my link it's going to be the same. So we have to make sure if the link works. If it works, SS can very well use Dan's link.

It is based on how it's designed to work.. if the system is designed to use only the first row of the results, it may work.. however if the system is fully dynamic then it would sign up the referral under all ids.. which could mess everything up..

When you load the page with your referral link, the system stores the id value in a session cookie that is stored in our browser.
Then when we click on the "Affiliate Program Earn up to $35 per Sale" link to browse to the registration page, the system loads that value from our browser.. so with cookies disabled the value will be null.. cause the cookie will not get stored.. So the member will join un-referred.

@Dan, I don't have plans on purchasing advertising there for now, but there is a probability for the future.. so I can't promise anything right now.
Anyways, I'll try to join under Dan and see if this even works as intended. I'll use a private browsing session so there's no need to worry about cookies not being clean or sth.

So, I've used Dan's link:
http://www.planet-traffic.com/?5029

And my ID is 5033.
Dan, can you please check your downline for an update?

Title: Re: I need an upline for Planet-Traffic.com
Post by dansbanners on 21st Jun, 2016 at 7:45pm
SS,

It worked. You're in my downline now. Although they don't show the ID number. But since I've not been promoting the program, it must be yours. Also, the timing of your post and the notification of the sign up e-mail I received afterwards.

My Downline count shows 0 in first level and 1 in second level.

Since it was manually done, I think the script didn't update the count. (There should be a column for that, instead of counting in real time.)

I was thinking of getting the 25 signups package for $9.99, for a campaign that I have in mind, so I'll probably try that in a few days.

I'll let you know about it once I do so.

To tell you the truth, purchasing signups is frowned upon in some of the affiliate or PTC programs. If you do purchase some, just make sure you don't do it in some of the programs that already frowns on them and do it in some of the programs that don't mind getting them.
