    Is there any good money to be made out of porn? It occurs to me that the majority of people just want free porn. Does anybody have any success with paid subscription content sites marketing their affiliate programs or is the monetization elsewhere? Successes and failures please.

    There is money to be made in porn but you have to pick a niche that's profitable. I have promoted adult affiliates for years and have made money but it's not my focus. Adult sites are harder to backlink to. Most SEO companies don't do adult.

    I have 2 adult sites that are custom blogs and they do make money. The conversions are higher than main stream, like 500:1 whereas my main stream stuff is 25:1.

    If it's your passion, go for it but do some serious research and find a niche that is profitable.

    How do you find a profitable niche in porn? Then what do you do, just promote paid subscription content sites affiliate programs, or what else is there?

    So where do you promote it if you can't use the usual places?

    To make any decent money in porn you need at least 4000K in TGP traffic or 1K in organic traffic...per day.... which will trickle down to around 700-400 click-throughs to your landing pages respectively... and by decent money I mean around $100/day... u could also send PPV or PPC traffic but I am guessing you don't know much about those.

    Anyhow, my thought is this > Porn is one of the most competitive venues you will EVER get into.. .so if you can't make money in mainstream where there are tons of places to promote your site and the back-linking opportunities are nearly endless then.... your hopes of making money in porn are very VERY slim.

    There was a time when porn was easy cash, but from what I understand it is hard to make decent cash now. Also, I have heard (cant verify) that some banks will not cash or accept deposits from companies that are known to be porn vendors. Once again I cant verify this, but was told so by my banker at Bank of America

    Good answers. Again how would you monetize porn? How would you generate 1000 organic visitors a day to what?

    Dont waste your time with porn,i have been doing it for 10+ years (was a great ride while it lasted) but now its dead. I find its 100x easier to mkae money in mainstream.

    My adult traffic now converts at 1:6000,while mainstream is 1:50.
