Selecting the Most Effective Adult Dating Sites

The Internet is full of Adult Dating Sites all claiming to be the biggest, best and most effective. Only a very small proportion of them have any right to make such claims. Those with a really large membership, are well established and deliver a truly effective adult dating service, are certainly worth joining and will deliver. Finding these highly effective sites is not difficult if you know what you are looking for.

Start by considering what the essential requirements of an effective adult dating site are. Firstly the site needs to be based in your country. There are several good U.S., Canadian and Australian adult dating sites but if you live in the U.K., it is best to look for a U.K. site. Although it is perfectly possible for these non-U.K. sites to have a lot of U.K. members, all other aspects being equal, a U.K. site will be better at delivering a U.K. service. But don’t try to guess where a web site is run from by it’s domain extension. There are many dot coms that are British – take Tesco for example! Instead, look up the site owners’ address. It should appear on one of the prominent web pages, such as a ‘Contact Us’ page. An absence of any address might well indicate that the site isn’t worth joining anyway!

Having established that the adult dating site is based in your home country, the next thing to check out is how long they have been established. Use either Network Solutions or Nominet (for UK registrations) to find out when a domain was registered. There are two reasons why the age of a site matters. Firstly because it takes several years of active website development and search engine optimization to make a site popular enough to attract the constant daily supply of new members that are necessary for effective adult dating. Secondly, because the longer an adult dating site has been operating, the more likely it is to have been doing so effectively. Most fail within the first two years of their existence.

The third thing to check is to get some idea of how many active members the site is likely to have. Unfortunately there is no way of being absolutely certain but if the site has been running for more than ten years and is based in your country it is almost certain to have the membership numbers needed to make it effective. Use a free search for members in your local or chosen areas to provide further evidence that the number and current level of membership activity are as good as the other factors indicate. You can eliminate any sites that do not allow you a free search.

The final thing to look for is whether the site claims to be free. If it does, you should be hearing alarm bells rather than celebrating the fact that it isn’t going to cost you anything. Just ask yourself one simple question; why on earth would anyone provide a free service when the setting up, maintenance, developing, marketing and search engine optimization of an adult dating site costs thousands of pounds per year and is often the work of a large team of people? If it’s free its because they are either just starting up and desperately need some members or it’s true purpose is not to deliver adult dating at all but it exists to capture personal information for scams ranging from email spamming to identity theft. If you want to avoid being the victim of those sort of things, stay well clear of adult dating sites offering entirely free membership.

However, totally free sites are not the same thing as partially free sites. Those that offer you limited free membership to browse profiles and make searches are likely to be absolutely genuine. They offer limited free access because they are confident that you will like what you find and quickly upgrade to full membership. If you are satisfied that the site matches the other criteria discussed above, a limited free membership of this sort should be seen as a further positive indication of the site’s effectiveness.
