    I have a pretty unique sex related blog. I started it in November 2012. I'm now getting 55,000 pageviews a month. All my traffic is organic. I have no bank links, don't advertise anywhere, never guest posted, didn't try any SEO stuff, etc. Around 90% of my traffic is from Google. Two things I've written have been picked up on Reddit, bringing me about 200,000 additional pageviews last month.

    I run four banner ads and two buttons. The top banner is JuicyAds, getting about $.70 a day from filler ads. The right banners are promoting male sex toys but haven't converted even once. The buttons promote cam sites, through which I've made about $200.

    Even though the only thing I've put into this is $6 a month for hosting and my time and effort, I feel the earnings are low for the amount of hits. What kind of money should I be making from this?

    55000 pageviews.
    You can make 220$ a month from adsense.
    But adsense dont accept adult related thing.
    You can try CPA or if you want to go with ads then i suggest go for infolinks.

    Better try to sell as an affiliate some things (video cams, adult ads ) not really sure because i haven't been in that area.
    First step in any online website is to make a subscribers list in that area, you started one ?

    Are these unique views? You also have to consider these may be bots hitting your site too. My guess is with no sales and high traffic that this might be your problem. You should figure that out first and than figure out how many are actual people visiting your site. Then you need to figure out what people are looking for when visiting your site and market appropriately. It may take some trial and error to figure out what works best.

    Use CPA and Dating Offers! Don't use Adsense on this site. I guess you can make around $200-$400 a month from this site.

    Less than 0.01% bots and spiders. Most of it is search engine traffic like I said. A lot of new visitors, about 20% repeat. Low bounce rate (55%), average time on site around 5 minutes.

    No adsense or Amazon obviously, because it's adult. I wish I could! My non-adult site gets 12,000 pageviews a month and makes me about $20 with adsense and Amazon affiliate stuff.

    I tried two dating sites but they never converted. Anyone know anything good that isn't just a plug for their own affiliate link?

    Better yet, who wants to buy this site? I'm 429,350 on ALEXA. LOL.

    Here's an idea of the adult sex toys for men I promote. This month 608 unique referrals but no conversions. That's terrible right?

    Wow after making this thread I got my first ever conversion on the Fleshlight. I get $21. Great!

    872 raw
    617 unique
    1 conversion

    Now if I can get that up to about 2000 a month I can pay my bills!

    If you joined a CPA network you would be able to get paid for the visitors to complete an action. If you then install a content locker you will be able to increase your conversion and income.
