    I have an adult blog with roughly 500 daily visitors. All organic traffic. PR is 2. Traffic is around 50% US.
    Domain is about 1.5 years old.

    I was contacted for a price quote for providing a hard link. How much to charge? I get around $30 on Juicy ads monthly from ads on this site - but that's not a hard link. I've never had an offer like this? What do you think I should ask?

    Cheers.

    I would probably just inquire on some other adult sites about buying a similar type of link to see what they're charging. That will at least give you a ballpark figure to work with, but you might want to go a little lower than that at first until you see how effective the traffic is for your client, then adjust the price accordingly as more time passes and you get a better idea of what the traffic is worth. But with only 500 UVs in the adult industry you're still very small so I would personally concentrate more on establishing relationships with advertisers instead of trying to maximize profits right off the bat.

    Off topic - Beven thanks for changing your avatar. Depending on the time of day, the huge bouncing boobs were quite distracting.

    @pitbully ... obviously, I wanted to thank the informative post, not the off-topic one :)
    Thanks everyone, I was thinking of asking some $50 monthly.

    This site actually earned more in the past, but it's pretty stale with posts now and I'm too lazy to update it. So cheers, that's what I was looking for.

    You're UV's are low actually.
    Focus on establishing a relationship (and more importantly getting your traffic numbers up...)

    $25-$30 to begin with is VERY good on your end to start with, considering most advertisers buying ads via adnetworks only pay a fraction of what you would make direct. Even if you charged a bit less for the first month, you can always give the advertiser an introductory price and raise the price after the 2-3 month. Make the purchase of adspace on your site worthwhile so that you will always keep your adslots filled on your site(s)

    In the meantime you should be studying his campaigns and site all the while, as you can run the same offers to profit for yourself on your site(s) should he not wish to make future adspace purchases. :cool:

    Things becoming more interesting... How much to charge for post including images from his site? I guess hard-linking to his site with embedded image/video.

    What do you guys think?
