    I just spent (gulp) $100.00 to findout that aadvertising enticing adz on porno sites is a joke - heres the stats - trying to sell fling.com signups

    i cant believe it ! - 426 hits on my ad and only 10 FREE joins - wow - -that means the paid one must take, like 50,00000000000000000 hits!!!

    this was through the Fling.com affiliate program called Huge Traffic. You have been duely notified

    Well yeah I don't want to sign up for an account to get porn when all I have to do is search free porn and get it with a click or two

    Idk, its not that bad to convert 1:43 for a dating free signup ad actually.. you are just paying too much for the advertising to make it profitable.

    I have some sites that sell adult novelties and PPC is OK with longtail keywords. BUT when I was getting started I went with a network that had pretty crappy clickthrough so I "expanded my target audience" to dating and chat and porn sites. What a bunch of deadbeats. I swear I'll never, never advertise novelties on jerk-off platforms again. A bit diff from your sign up issues, but still, I think when people can only type with one hand they're not in the mood to pay for much.
