    Hey guys,

    So after stumbling across BHW, I've spent about two weeks reading through the site constantly (so much info on here - thanks to all who contribute!) and have finally decided to start my own site. I have a couple of other ideas, but I thought I'd start with a porn blog and see how that develops. I'm aware of how poorly adult sites convert these days, but I'm treating this as more of a learning experience - plus if i ever get to like $20 a day at some point that'd be plenty!

    I've chosen an amateur niche - it's not totally micro niche as there are about 5 or so sub categories within it, but hopefully this will let me attract a larger user base in the future. My key selling point is that all the videos I post are reviewed by myself, so they're not poor quality nor shitty professional porn pretending to be amateur (which clogs up so much of the amateur areas of most porn tube sites). I hope this will encourage my users to check back on a regular basis, checking for new videos etc - so I will have a recurring user base (not sure if that's the correct term for it). I also hand write descriptions of each video (about 100-150 words each), so I'm also hoping this will generate unique content for Google.

    After reading some recommendations on the forum, I chose the third version of the free-wp-tube theme and have got that setup with some decent plugins (such as Yoast for seo) and filled the ad spaces with juicyads filler ads with the auto standard pricing.

    I currently have 8 videos up and I'm going to be adding a further 10-20 this weekend - keeping the distribution as even between the sub categories as possible. All my videos are embedded, which is a bit of a pain but keeps hosting cheap just now.

    So the initial setup part is done, I'm now looking towards how I can attract and keep visitors. From reading around, I have the following:

    - post to porn forums or similar (not spamming just natural posting) to add some back links and generate some traffic
    - post to adult directories - is this worthwhile though after the latest google updates? surely it'd produce only low quality backlinks?
    - add newsletter functionaliy where people can sign up and be emailed when a new video is added
    - create a twitter account - does this work for adult sites though?
    - possibly contact other porn sites to put my link on their page and vice versa

    Does anyone have any suggestions or criticisms so far?

    I also had two other questions if anyone wouldn't mind answering. Firstly, I selected softcore ads only on my site - I want to create a relatively decent user experience so didn't want any of the more nastier hardcore ads on my site - will this be detrimental to ad clicks? Secondly, I registered my domain name before I realized that the shorter it is the better, so it's very long, like so: theamateur<niche>sexblog - should I consider finding a better domain name before I go about promoting the site? Or will it not make that much of a difference?

    Sorry for the long post! Thanks so much for any input you can provide =)

    You are on the right track... I've set up Porn sites in the past and like most websites, it's all about Traffic=$

    As for your questions, gear your ads towards your theme/niche and as for the domain, it should not be an issue.

    Nice approach man.

    About your question if Twitter helps on this kind of adult sites (despite the fact it's a blog or File-sharing webpage) it does help.

    Take for example twitter.com/fakku
    They update (obviously automatically) each time new content is added on their site, and it sure works. If you can achieve 7000+ followers like they did, you have business. Of course many people will say "if you have 7000 followers in Twitter anything is profitable". Clearly it works that way, but in specific niche adult media it works absolutely gratefully.

    Let me explain that further, you said you plan to add quality videos selected manually by you. Promote that, make that your sales speech, it's your differentiating element and it is what will add value to your followers that are not looking for an update bot that will tell them each time a video is uploaded to xvideos or such, but are interested in a specific niche, with quality (real amateurs in this case) elements.

    Just my personal experience, if you take it, great.

    Good luck on your endeavors. Hope you tell us how your site is going once it starts to get a visitors flow.

    Nice man, congrats.

    If you use Wordpress install the Twitter tools plugins for auto updates on tweeter and such, but don't just rely on them, write a couple of personal, customized entries by yourself, it seems to work a little better on some cases.

    Diversify your approach, think of it as creating an update for each kind of possible visitor, e.g.: guys looking for a quick porn fap v/s guys lookig for their new soon to be number 1 porn videos homepage, they all can make you some bucks on different monetizing methods.

    Good luck.

    I've just gone through the tube sites and kept a list of videos in my niche that fit my requirements. All the videos are amateur, so it's unlikely I'm violating any copyright laws and, if I am, I'm just playing videos embedded from the original tube site, so they are the ones liable, not me =)

    Thanks for the vote of confidence! Yesterday I updated all my ads, I'm now using loadedcash's BlackBooks & iHookup dating sites and their sexplaycam cam site as well. They are much more visually appealing that the juicy ads' ads so hopefully should result in more clicks! I am considering using a dedicated cam site as sexplaycam seems to combine dating and cams, when I already have dating well covered.

    I also added a mobile redirect code, using juicy ads. I wasn't going to at first, as it'll likely decrease the amount of revisits as people may well want to visit again but from their phone or whatever. However, my embedded videos won't play when viewed on a mobile device so I thought I might as well.

    Now all the ads are setup, I just need to add a load more videos, I'm currently only on 12. I think I need about 30 before I can start properly marketing it.

    I've also added a follow me twitter button to the site, and I am tweeting whenever a new video gets uploaded. No followers yet, so I will need to scrape myself some followers soon.

    Cheers =)

    You need do do linkexchange with major topsites in your niches. Adult website is not your regular site that you can spam everywhere. as everyone said before you need huge generic traffic for conversion or you need to be in front of the porn appreciators of your niche. I would say find them first and the twitter method explained above is a good way to start.

    How do the loadedcash BlackBooks & iHookup ads work? Are they Pay Per Click like Adsense or are they purely Pay Per Registration?

    CyberSeo, thanks a lot for the links! The skins you linked there are way better than the one I have been using. I've now switched over to it and the site looks a million times better :D - I'll be updating this blog personally so no need for your plugin atm; however, I have an idea for another porn tube, which would be automated, so I may well call upon it then.

    creep, thanks for the info - as soon as I reach a decent amount of videos on the site (I think about 30) I will be hopefully scraping some twitter followers and start seeing if anyone is willing to link exchange.

    gravija, you can choose which method you like, dependent on the site you are promoting. For iHookup I have used Pay Per Lead (so it pays for every verified email) and for BlackBooks and SexPlayCam I have used Pay Per Free (so every signup)

    How much are payouts for porn site leads?

    I'm interested in advertising on Porn sites or perhaps doing a JV for my dating product, but are porn leads expensive or not?

    It could be an interesting experiment. I know a guy who used porn banner ads for his dating product and got a good amount of traffic of that.
