    How much do you think the big popular ones make like xhamster, uporn, etc.? I always wondered that. They must make alot because just to keep those sites running with servers and stuff would be insane. Do they spend alot on SEO? Also where you think most of the profit comes from on those sites? CPA? Camshows? Not that I want to start one but more curious than anything.

    I'm pretty sure some of them are in the millions, though I don't know. They make money from paid memberships, people paying them for advertising, camshows, cpa and whatnot. The adult industry is years ahead from anything else in terms of advertising.

    My thoughts exactly. While I am sure money is made, not sure if porn is as big as it was due to all the free porn floating around.

    They must be in $$$$$ daily range but the actual figures are quite hard to judge.

    Majority of those big porn sites have those pop-under ads or when you click anywhere on the site for the first time, an ad pops up. I'm sure they make $$$$ daily off of just ads.

    I'm sure they're making a lot, but in adult you need TONS of traffic to see anything happen. You could get 20,000 uv per day and not see much of anything cash wise in adult. Most visitors get what they need then bounce.

    Well said. With college educated mob consultants pron sellers were able to quickly able to secure 70% of dot com earnings (in the late 90s). We are still catching up to them even as they push forward.

    Their main source of revenue is CPM advertising. I won't go into exact details about who makes what, but I do know some are selling in the mid to higher $xx xxx just in CPM advertising daily.

    Then, all the clips on their site are usually linked to affiliate programs with their ref code in it. So they get Revshare or PPS on sales they generate. I know some popular clips can generate 10 or more sales a day. Multiply that by 15 to 30 updates in a day (some clips make 0 sales, some make hundreds).

    Then there are the cam/dating/premium member upsells.

    Then there is mailing the user database consisting of millions of emails.

    Are tubes making a lot of money? Yes, but only a select few have a majority control of the traffic, the rest are fighting for scraps.

    If you look at some of those sites like youporn, they're up there in the top 100 websites. I'm sure that they easily make $5k per day. Just the popunders alone would probably earn them a ton.

    about 3 years ago (approx) pornhub was turning over $1.6 million a month , with either 1,000,000 going on hosting, and 600,000 in gross profit, or vice versa, this was a few years ago, but the figures were accurate because they had to disclose these figures to the court when they were being sued , but it will be a lot more now - more traffic etc because they've bought more sites since then, look up winman or vice versa.

    I have no idea but if I see one more fucking Russian porn video of some guy banging his "mom" I'm gonna stop perusing for porn altogether.
    I need to hear people screwing in english.

    As Jules Winfield said in Pulp Fiction: "ENGLISH MOTHERFUCKER! DO YOU SPEAK IT?!"

    totally, millions.
    for people who can't get porn for free (they didn't know the site etc), well-known porn site is the place. try the first month, then move to other big porn site.
