    I have 500 uniques aday yet I don't make a living from my website, I'm far from it to tell you the truth.

    Is there anyone here that is actually making a living from an adult site, if so how many uniques do you have?

    500 uniques a day for an adult site is far from enough to make a living on it.
    Unless you're running a micro niche site that receives VERY targeted and high quality traffic (like the type of traffic that you get when you advertise in other paysites' member areas) you'll need to have at least 2-5K unique visitors per day if you want to make a 'decent' income, and that number can easily go up to 10-20K... Adult sites are converting like total shit these days... Porn tubes and a shitty economy are the top reasons for low conversions in adult online market, imo.

    I think you'd be better off talking about adult sites in plural, unless you are dealing in profitable micro-niches then you'll be better served by a good number of site's then you have your own traffic bouncing around your network. It's more stable, less prone to the vagaries of search engines and will keep a lot more than 500 uniques visiting your empire of filth every day.

    Always aim for the niche markets, the people that get turned on by niche stuff are more likely to pull out a credit card than those who are just looking to see tits.

    And as for me - making enough to live on? No.. getting there? Yes..
