    I'm interested in views on whether an adult site can get away with lower quality backlinks than more mainstream sites? A few things to consider;

    - Don't want to churn and burn; sites need to rank as long-term as possible.
    - Many of the sites in the niche I'm looking at have quite low DR and few backlinks or if they lots of link they are pretty spammy.
    - From browsing some adult webmaster forums it seems that there are plenty of webmasters actively trading/selling/exchanging links.

    Given that this is an industry where it's always going to be quite difficult (granted, not impossible) to generate truly 'white-hat' links (i.e 'proper' guest posts or 'earned' links to good posts etc) and given the state of competitors backlink profiles is it likely to be a reasonably safe bet to copy some of the less spammy links or techniques from competitors, even if they are perhaps more spammy than links I would accept to a more mainstream site?

    Or in this situation, would you go for trying to create the best content possible and look for anywhere that might accept editorial content of an adult nature?

    I would be interested to read some of the replies to this thread OP. I have resorted to spamming social media but with rotating intros in the hope it doesn't get instantly ignored. eg - "I'm sure i've seen her before at - website

    Thanks for the reply deadsteve.
    I know for a fact there are some good ways to generate traffic and I'll quite likely try social media and other avenues.

    I guess I'm just going to have to get testing on link building methods and see what happens! I'll try and give an update if I notice any results.

    As a general rule of thumb, the backlink profiles of adult sites in general tend to be spammier and of lower quality.

    I strongly believed that Google uses a different set of rules in ranking adult websites.

    If you do a backlink audit of the typical adult site, such a backlink footprint would get you banned, penalized, or lost in the serps, if that site were a mainstream site.

    Obviously, adult sites are being evaluated using a different set of rules.

    I highly suspect that the name of the name when it comes to adult sites, is link behind.

    Forget about earning backlinks or building spammy links.

    You're better off buying quality links from established players.
