    So I have been having trouble driving traffic to a particular site and decided to try to see if people would go to the site if I offered them free pics of nude women. My theory is that this will drive plenty of traffic (which probably won't convert). If this doesn't drive traffic then... I'm not sure what else to try. I have used Pligg Desktop,SocialSpeed,Xrumer,SENuke, you name it and I tried it. So now I am trying some porn... I guess whatever it takes.

    No links from my main page and no links on any page that serves any ads. Risks? Rewards? Any thoughts?

    Thank you.

    sex does not sell, or at least not anymore, you will need shitloads of traffic to make decent cash, but if you do things right you'll get it since it is much easier to get adult traffic and it is much more fun in my opinion, . I tried different stuff... i got bored. Once you get good traffic you'll start seeing money, thats the way it works... especially with adult sites ;)

    it all depends on who you are trying to sell to, but yes, sex sells most of the time. :)

    I am using CURL to show the pics and redirecting any links associated with the pics to places where I want the traffic to go. So if they click on the woman of their pleasure... they go where I want them to go (at least until they hit the back button).

    What is your site selling you may get traffic but will it convert? Sex still works but what is the demographic you are targeting?

    You can use programs to build or generate traffic exchanges. This names CJ sites (or circle jerks) use programs like cjoverkill, traffic trader, .. there are much ones like this.

    Cjoverkill is IMHO the best when you tweak some things about it. Also use a nasty exit popout with visitors who don't buy or who are not targheted to buy.

    It's all about beïng original... but that's again difficult becausse sex stays sex it's nothing more or less.

    Try to find some micro niches where you are willing to becomme a authority on...

    When you do have enough money, the best thing you can do is creating your own micro niche. Something original.

    Cheers,

    If you're in the USA, consider your 18 USC 2257 liabilities also. Google that string to find out what the issues are.

    FleshJoe... good advice. I didn't think about any legal liabilities. I'll have to figure that out. I am really just serving up ads and completely unrelated content and trying for a different hook to generate traffic. It is probably best to not mix the two (an adult site is an adult site... not 1/2 adult and 1/2 not).

    Thanks again.

    it depends on the product, no?

    i don't think sex would sell acai berries...

    unless....


    yeah forget it, sex sells everything. anything could be portrayed in a way that involves sex. "buy this bicycle seat- it's great for sex!"
