    My blog is one month old and I would like to know if I'm doing the job right.
    I know when it comes to traffic I cannot expect much from a month old adult blog but I suppose there must be a way to let webmaters know how they´ve been doing so far even at this early stage.

    First of all, you got to make sure you are putting it in the right hole.

    Visitor stats, bounce rates, income from adverts.
    You won't see much though. You've got nothing to compare the stats to. Wait 'till month 2 ends, compare the stats to month 1. Then find out how to grow (more).

    Where are you currently advertising your site? Are you partnering with other related sites to exchange traffic? Take a look at what you have done so far and see where you can tweak your performance to enhance traffic. Track your efforts daily, even hourly to see if there is a spike after your promotion efforts. Then repeat whatever is successful.

    AS you are saying it is a one month old blog, have some patience for it to age. The recent updates with google says blogs to rank well need some age.
    Regular postings, using plugins like yoast to help engines to know about your site ( if wordpress), regular back link ingestions, analyzing the stats, analyzing the backlink strategies of the competing blogs and adopting positive strategies from them are few things that can be done as basics

    It is still difficult to tell whether you are doing great or not, especially with the age of the blog that you are currently handling. What you can do at the moment is to wait for changes that can happen for another month that will pass. Constantly check your website stats, then make a move depending on the results.

    Can't say whether you are doing it right or not without seeing the blog in question. However, if you are experiencing so much as liittle bits of success, you are definitely doing some things right.

    Better you check it in Google Analytics, If you are doing the work, with the help of that you can get the visitors means you are going in the right path.
    Otherwise you want to work more....

    I find google analytics interface a bit messy, but I'll have to start paying more attention. I'm using clicky, statcounter and histats right not.
    I started getting some visitors from google and yahoo. I know the keywords for the yahoo hits but google doesn´t provide that info.
    I was bit skeptical so I decided to try it myself and using either my home connection or my french vps my site gets on the 1st result page of yahoo.
    Using the same keywords on google, my blog also gets on the 1st result page. Typing in my blog's name, the link appears on the 2nd or 3rd page.
    Btw, the keywords are from my title tag.

    What I have done so far:
    Make a "seo friendly" blog by using the alt tag for my images, using customized permalinks, editing the meta and title tags, updating it daily, using keywords in content and sent the blog to google, yahoo and bing to be indexed.

    To promote my blog:
    Post watermarked images on gallery dumps.
    Put my blog's link in my signature for the several adult forums I visit.
    Uploaded veral videos to adult tubes
    LE with adult forums and blogs
    Trying to build reputation on reddit to drive traffic later
    Post links on link dumps



    That's about it. Quite a bit of work I've done and still have to do.

    Any ideas are most appreciated

    What are your goals for this website? Do you want to rank on google for a keyword? Or do you mean are you promoting it properly?

    If your traffic and advert's income increase consistently then I could say you are on the right path.
