    Hello, I've been trying to make decent money with an adult content blog setup for the past few months. At this point I made about $30. I've been inactive for the past few days really just because I've been looking at other ways to make money. I used to make $500+ monthly with my YT business till I decided to sell my accounts and move on since YT turned sucky. The past few months though, I'm starting to regret my decisions. My main blog has over 31,000 followers and gets an average of 2K-3K total views daily. At it's peak point, it got around 6-7K total views daily and I was making about $.50-$.60 every day. I make the money by redirecting with every post to a tubesite and on the tubesite I use a combination of normal ads and also every 5-10 clicks the user gets redirected via a monetized link. Now I'm making less than $.15 daily and don't know what to do really. I have 3 more blogs with over 500 followers each but slowly I've lost interest. I could easily queue up the 4 blogs with a decent amount of pics and gifs daily for a week, but I'm slightly discouraged by my earnings. I don't want to use bots, since I prefer growing blogs organically. I don't follow for follow, just wait for some pictures to get a lot of notes. I have hundreds of pictures with over 5K notes, and a few with over 20K notes. Mostly I get 50-300 notes per pic on average. Every 20 or so posts gets up to 500-1K notes. I post only HD content to make sure quality's there.

    I use juicyads and ero-advertising for the ads on my tubesite btw. Any tips to make at least $5 daily within the next month or two? My best day ever was probably $.91 max.
    I'm only discouraged lately since I spent most of last year's and this year's earnings and am very close to being broke now. I'm not in serious trouble since I can still sell a few things to make enough money for a few months, but after that yeah.

    Do you have mobile redirects with juicy ads? Also are you using click through links on your content? It seems like you should be making a minimum for $5/day with those kind of numbers.... Something seems off.

    Increase the number of your tumblrs. Use the bigger accounts to grow the new ones.

    Consider directing the traffic first to your own website. This way your tumblrs will tend to be live for longer periods of time. Also, you will be able to monetize the traffic better.

    Make use of stumbleupon. It can bring extra traffic, both to your tumblr and to your main site. You can use iftt to automate it. And stumbleupon accounts are easy to set-up.

    douglife31, I just made use of mobile redirects! I doubt it will bring that much in though, since most users are most likely using tumblr on desktop. (Just my guess, since tumblr app isn't too good and especially for nsfw searches it's just terrible) I've already been making use of pop-under ads and just regular filler ads. For click through links, every tumblr post I do I make sure to redirect both to my website (that's first) and secondly to my secondary blog.
    mindmaster, I might check out stumbleupon since I've never even really heard about it.
