Tubely – 100% Free Online Dating Service

We all know you can really make money online if you start a porn site, but a lot of people really do not want to go the route. There are a lot of other alternatives that will still make you good money. One of the biggest is online social networks, more importantly online dating sites. Tubely is a new online dating site and they have ordered a ReviewMe review to generate some traffic and increase their user base. Let’s see if they can find me a date!

What’s great about Tubely is that it is free! So many other dating sites have some fee involved, Tubely is 100% free! You can go ahead and signup and you are asked to create a user name and enter some information. I was surprised that I had to enter in my full address and phone number. Usually for any type of social networking site you only have to enter in your zip code. All of the fields are required for sign up. After you sign up you are asked if you want to participate in any free offers, there are about 25 of them and each is on its own page! So you have to click through 25 pages of offers! 25 offers really is not that bad, when you order anything from GoDaddy there are a ton of offers too, but they are all on 1 or 2 pages.

After you go through the signup process you are asked to create your profile. It is actually pretty in-depth. You can enter everything from your interests to your hometown. You are also asked to upload a photo of yourself for your profile. Although I have not found out how to add more photos or even change my current photo. After you have put in all of the info for your profile you are brought to your home page. Here you can do many things like invite people to join Tubely, join groups, see recent posts from your friends, and edit your profile.

Tubely

Tubely does offer some features that a lot of other dating sites do not have. They have a calendar system where you can list events and users on Tubely can view them. You can list these events as private where only your friends can view them or public where anyone can view them. Tubely also has a Rank system where you can rank other users from 1 to 10. Tubely has a list of top 25 women and top 25 men. There is a classmates section where you can find classmates that you went to school with. Only colleges and universities are listed, not high schools.

Tubely

Ok time to find a date! You can search for other Tubely members easily by going into the search page. There are only 4 criteria for searching; gender, age, country, and if they have a photo or not. Really for a dating site I would expect there to be more criteria than that, at least be able to find people in your area and not just by country. I mean I’m not going to fly across the country for a date!

When you go into someone’s profile you can see all of their information that they have provided minus the personal information like phone number and address. From here you can add them as a friend, bookmark them, invite them to a group, view their blog, and write in their scrapbook. Another cool feature is that you can introduce them to one of your friends. You just click on “Make an Intro” and then you can select one of your friends.

You can also vote for them on 4 criteria, Physique, Personality, Style, and Profile. These ratings will increase their profile rank. You can check out my public profile here. This public profile is a profile anyone can see, they do not have to be logged into Tubely. Once you are logged in the profile is different and you can do all the things I just listed.

Tubely

Finally Tubely gives you a chance to make some money. If you go in to edit you profile the last tab says Affiliate. Here you are given an affiliate link, which you can get other users to sign up for Tubely. Although there affiliate system does not seem to be working because if you click my affiliate link it says that Fernandes Mervin has referred you, not me. Also there is no information on the affiliate program anywhere on their site so you really do not know how you get paid.

Recommendations For Improvement

Tubely is a very new site so I was not able to find a date! Here are a few recommendations for them to improve their site. The biggest would have to be refining the search. Users should be able to find people that are close to them, not just by country. Also I could not for the life of me figure out how to change my profile picture. So for right now once you have uploaded a picture it’s the only one you can use. Finally a lot of people might not be so keen to sign up if you require things like a phone number and full address. I think zip code or city is just fine.

Requesting a review on John Chow dot Com is a good idea for Tubely since most of the readers are young, single (and no doubt horny) males. Like all dating/social sites, scale is very important. Tubely needs to get bigger and it needs to do that in a short time fame if it hooks to make a dent in the online dating market. Hopefully, this review is just the start of their marketing efforts. Join Tubely today and see if you can find a date!

    I doubt they will ever rival the Adult Friend Finder Juggernaught, but the affilaite program sounds interesting, once it’s working properly 😀

    1. Making money WHILE looking for a date…I don’t think I’ve ever heard of that before; definitely something new to offer to the public.

    2. John, does your wife know you were looking for a date? What do you tell her when she finds out… “oh honey, I was just doing a ReviewMe for this site.” Awesome excuse. 😛

      1. ricdes says:

        It’s not John. It’s bob the builder. 😛

        1. Shawn Knight says:

          hahah JOKES!! love that name hah

        2. LOL Bob the builder…”if you build it and they will come!”

      2. Matt Huggins says:

        Tubely probably didn’t really order a ReviewMe review, this is just an elaborate lie so his wife won’t catch onto him. 😛

    3. hmmm, another dating site

      i’m all fed up

  2. So good to see you as a guest author, Bob. 🙂 Well, I don’t see why this site can’t take off and hit it big PROVIDED they did make a few changes on search capabilities and not asking for a person’s telephone number or home address (email address, zip code, college — those are OK I guess). Oh, and your profile’s hot, btw LOL might want to check the movie field though. 😉

  3. Your first post Bob? How bout an intro?

  4. Kumiko says:

    Not sure how a review for a dating site really fits in here?? I would’ve liked to have seen more emphasis on their affiliate program!!

    Kumiko

    1. Maybe it’s because it offers more than just potential dates with other people from the network. I agree though; there should have been more info about the affiliate link.

    2. Marc says:

      There’s no emphasis because it’s broken 😐

      Its pretty tough to go into detail on something that has no details about it.

    3. well, you know they paid 400 dollars for it.

      so it fits, at least in john’s point of view

    4. Entrepreneur says:

      Yeah, I think it would have been more appropriate if the review was focused on the affiliate program.

  5. Heyyy John,
    How do u come to jump in tubely ?
    Are you getting paid by them for referring to others ? or they choose u for tubely’s brand ambassador ??

    Anyway,
    all the best for finding your date …!!

    Cheers…!!

  6. The ghost review reappear! :mrgreen:

    Because it’s just starting, they are bound to be missing somethings and it won’t be able to satisfy everyone first. But, the search by city should had been one of the first thing.

    But with a ReviewMe like this, they will get feedback and members should make their own suggestions for them to add to their TO-DO list. 😉

    They do ask a lot of tracking info(telephone number and home address). One way to look at it is that the person searching is more serious in dating. But if no checking is done, then it’s worthless. It could be a paid option later like “Verified dater”. 😀 How? I don’t know. 🙁

    1. Marc says:

      Sure you can be missing some things, but if you’re asking for a review from JohnChow.com, you really should have your affiliate program working. Otherwise look for websites who won’t care about that feature to review you.

      1. Your are right, I forgot to point it out in my comment.

        This could be an example for the others that have an affiliate program(not finished) and want to be reviewed here. Set the base before and nothing is stopping them on improving it later on.

  7. Tech news says:

    Dating and johnchow.com? yuck!

    Oh please, we want net ramblings and girl ramblings, not dating 😉

    1. Matt Huggins says:

      Yeah, I think accepting this review was a pretty bad idea. I mean, turning down $200 for a single blog post can be pretty tough I’m sure, but I don’t see how this relates to making money online…

  8. Michael says:

    The problem with free is the high percentage of fakes. If you have to pay for something there is less a chance of fake accounts.

    1. Marc says:

      That’s going to be the major issue that will lead to their success or demise. If I find someone that is a match for me, are they real or not?

    2. I think alot of these are just fakes that are loaded to lure guys/girls to join so as to get traffic so as to get ad revenue.

  9. A dating site pays for a review on a web development / ‘make money online’ blog? I disagree with Bob that purchasing a review on John Chow was a good idea.

    1. Ali says:

      It’s still “The Miscellaneous Ramblings of a Dot Com Mogul” or Bob Buskirk in this matter.

      I choose to skip it as I’m already married, just reading the comments.

    2. Marc says:

      I don’t think it was a fundamentally flawed idea, I just think they should have had their affiliate program working. Then through that reviewme investment, you would get a heap of us piling on to their affiliate bandwagon growing their registrant base.

  10. well the site lookis goood

    tho the is not yet perfect

    the affiliate section is not yet completed

    and it will surely take some time to get it fixed.

    I don’t think I’d go to a dating site named tubely, it just sounds weird.

  12. blogdinero says:

    The skin is some bad according the theme to find people.

  13. simon says:

    Oh~ yes
    We got another writer for JohnChow.com’s reviewme review.Cool~ 🙂

  14. Andreas Bard says:

    Too bad that they are using that crappy script. If they have not customized it a lot they will regret using it.

    Well, maybe that is just my opinion, but there are a lot of better dating site softwares out there.

    1. Matt Huggins says:

      Yeah, seeing sites like this gives me motivation to complete my custom-coded free dating site. Maybe I can order a John Chow review for comparison to Tubely by the readers here. Hmmm… 😈

  15. Roberta says:

    I noticed this review on my bloglines the other day, so I had the opportunity to check it out there. Weird…. I used to run an online dating site and this one doesn’t seem really user friendly. I wouldn’t ever name a dating site, Tubely, it sounds strange and non-memorable.

    1. Matt Huggins says:

      It makes it sound like it’s going to be full of fat people. I agree with it not being user-friendly though, as I’ve been researching dating sites for awhile and custom coded most of a dating site myself.

      1. Dude not fat – Horizontally Challenged 😯

        1. LOL yeah, I believe that is the politically correct term for that.

  16. My buddy started an internet dating site a few years ago. It was sort of like this, when you sign up, there are tons of pages of offers to go through. He finally sold the site for 2.5 million. He was 23.

  17. Entrepreneur says:

    They have a looooong way to go before they can rival PlentyofFish 🙂

  18. You are rigth Bob, really difficult to find a date if you only have country search!, unless you live in Liechtenstein or Monaco 🙂

  19. Great Review. Unless you live in Lichtenstein I can’t see how you could use this as a dating site. Sounds like a MySpace wannabe with less features and ill thought out to me.

  20. green says:

    Thanks, i won’t go dating sites currently 😆

  21. i don’t use datings sites tooooo

  22. hello friends
    Beuatiful with Agloco!!!!!!!

  23. Wahlau.NET says:

    but wouldn’t free actually be a lot of fraud and your eGirlfriend may actually be a guy… 😆
