To both of you if you use it on the Forums don't make post around it, that's considered Spam,
and you are only allowed to put it in your Signature.

As a subscriber it is already setup, go to your account information a then 'refer a friend',
then goto the forum signature (under Forum Management), and put it in that

Then post normally, do not create topics or replies just to get your signature out there, & do not post only your RAF link

Posting normally, seems to get an acceptable number of clicks if your posts are liked, of course the more doing it the thinner those clicks are spread
Just like everyone else, here is my friends code , if you sub or re-sub we both get rewarded.

As mentioned above, don't put your referral link in the message. You should put it in your signature.

Some people pay for it in game. The rest is just luck and having a lot of friends.

I want to clarify a few things that have been said. To find your own personal referral link, go to the "My Account" section on this site (upper right under your account name if you're logged in) and go to the "Refer a Friend" section. Here you will see a link in the middle of the page. Give this link to other players to click on. You can also pay people credits in-game to click on your link. Usually people pay a few million, although there are some scammers out there who don't pay up, so beware of that.

If you're going to post of the forums for the hope of an occasional click, DO NOT create a post with your link in it, the only place you're allowed to put it on this site is in your forum signature. Putting your referral link in a post is considered spam. In your account section, go down to "Forum Management" and click on "Update your forum signature" this is where you edit your signature.

Normally, if someone clicks on a link and then subscribes to the game within 14 days of clicking on it, the person referring them gets rewards. Unfortunately, not everyone who clicks a link ends up subscribing (at least not within 14 days) and I don't think you get anything unless they subscribe. The exception to this is when someone who has an active subscription clicks your link. When that happens you get some cartel coins no matter what.

The person who is being referred gets a bundle of stuff that's different depending on whether they are new to the game or previously subscribed. They also get a free character transfer. The 7 days of free sub time might just be for previous subscribers who click a link but I'm not entirely sure. Either way, the normal rewards for subscribing make it worth subscribing for at least 1 month in my opinion. Subscribing for just 1 month gives free permanent access to all expansions even when you revert back to being F2P and you get free cartel coins each month you are subscribed among lots of other perks.

There's a promotion going on right now that ends very soon where you get double cartel coins if someone clicks your link and subscribes for at least 1 month (15 bucks) by either today or, I believe, tomorrow (when the promotion ends). The person being referred also gets cartel coins.

So for anyone who wants to, or has, clicked on a link, if you plan on subscribing at some point, doing it either today (Jan 2nd) or possibly tomorrow (after clicking a link) will give both people more rewards. More information on all of this can be found here:

Just a reminder, today is the last day for the double cartel coin referral promotion. To qualify, anyone who clicks a link must subscribe for at least 1 month (15 bucks) by today. This gives both people 500 bonus cartel coins in addition to normal rewards for both people. More information found here:

Subscribing for just 1 month gives numerous benefits including permanent access to all expansions. Even when reverting back to Preferred status, you will still have access to the expansion content for being subscribed previously. You also get 500 free cartel coins for each month you stay subscribed in addition to many other perks and less restrictions. Here's a table showing the differences between F2P, Preferred, and Subscribed:
