    Hi guys, I was wondering how profitable are porn tube-image user generated content sites? I was thinking about the idea couples of months ago and left it because I was discourage by the dying of the industry. But I'm back to it again, and everything is ready. Basically my niche is teen-amateur from Eastern Europe/Asia.

    You could watch free videos, and pics, if you want to download any of them you will have to register, which is free. I try to get videos that are not copyrighted and are purely amateur, so my next question is....how profitable can it be? How do I attract more traffic?

    Thanks for the help! :D

    Sex never dies. Specially watching it. Lol.

    Original exclusive content. Buying traffic also helps.

    It can be profitable but from what I hear it can be super expensive because of how much bandwidth they use up, you'll need a good monetization method.

    Porntubes are really hard to make money from. It's kind of like drug dealing though. The people at the very top are pulling in tons and tons of money, but your average street level guy probably is making very little. The biggest problem as another person said is bandwidth. Porn can take up a ton of bandwidth, and convert very little. I've had friends getting xxx,xxx visitors a day and make about $xx. The conversion is very low generally. Plus the competition is ridiculously high. I don't know, theres a chance you can make it big, but that chance is pretty slim without an intelligent twist.

    Are you talking about creating your own site like youporn, pornotube etc?

    If so, you're looking at crazy expenses for hosting. That being said, you can find a few hosts that provide a crazy amount of bandwidth for really low prices. Check out some of the other video hosting sites out there like putlocker and wootly and you'll probably get a good idea where to start.

    I would bet that it's really not difficult to get scores of traffic, even without paying for it.

    I was looking at the stats of one of my websites yesterday. It's not a porn site and I don't have any porn on it. What I do have, however, is a keyword that's also a keyword that might be used by people looking for porn.

    For this keyword, I'm getting about 30 visits a day. True, that's a small number. But, on Google, I am not even ranked in the first 10 pages of search results. So, people have to be doing a lot of searching to dig down to where ever it is I rank just to visit my site (and be disappointed there is no porn).

    So, I can imagine that if I ranked higher, I would be getting even more traffic. And, I would bet that if I actually had a porn site, I would rank higher.

    From search engines alone, I bet you could get a ton of traffic for porn. Throw in some paid ads and ad exchanges with other porn sites, and I don't doubt that it's possible to get tens of thousands of visitors per day.

    Porn site earn mainly through advertising space.

    since there are literally millions of porn video available for free,
    people rarely pay for premium unless you provide a unique content

    I used to run one.
    Tubes are good as traffic pumps. But you will never make money directly from the tube traffic since the quality of traffic will be extremly low. You need to funnel the traffic to other niched sites and trade traffic to make it work. Not to mention the bandwidth costs and time to monitor people uploading crap.
    If you have never run a high traffic adult site before, I would suggest you to stay away from them.

    Use a traffic exchange script with other porn sites, for every visitor(s) they send you you will send x amount back. The script will be on you site and your partners will be able to log in and see there stats. The more they send you the more you send them. You can get a traffic exchange script for $35 i think which is the cheapest just do a Google search. Also buy adult traffic that allows traffic exchange that way you will be able to fill your needs. After all is set up go to an Adult advertising place and place adds on you site or sell advertising on your site so you can make some cash. Hope this helps.

    Just seen this thread and you might be able to do a bit of traffic swapping with this guy.

    Thanks for all the answers! ;) Yeah, I was seeing that the bandwidth might kill me, so I decided for only embed content. People can choose to watch the content for free, and they can sign up so they can embed (from other tube sites such as xHamster, Xvideos, etc) their favorite content relating to that specif niche. It's kind of those sites of TPG, but people sign up and post their favorite clips. I also manage to strip down my niche even more; teen amateur from eastern Europe/Asia who do BJ/DT/Gagging and Squirting....is that good enough?

    Thanks for everything! ;)

    I am doubtful it makes any money. There are lots of story tellers online. My own experience is that i could not reach $1 per day of adult advertisement revenue with 600 visitors per day.
    On the other hand, i know that a non adult website who do more with google adwords.
