    I started to respond in a different thread and realized this should be a thread of its own.

    For sexy videos to stick, the system is as follows:
    1. There is no way to guarantee your videos won't be flagged, as there are people who pride themselves on being the moral police of the world and will spend their lives flagging anything they find offensive. You also have competition, like the douchebags who come into this forum and try to manipulate others into flagging videos for them for one reason or another. Unfortunately, YouTube relies heavily on the community, comprised in part of the above characters, to make its banning decisions. For this reason, it's really advisable to upload no more than 3 videos to any one account. An account can have 2 videos flagged without the 3rd one being affected. But once the third video is flagged, the account will be banned altogether.

    2. There is always inefficiency in any sufficiently chaotic system, and YT is no exception. Therefore, if you upload enough videos, you will have those that stick for months or years, simply because the competition and the morality nazis will not find and flag everything. So, the key is to do more uploading. Simple as that.

    3. Certain things offend more than others. Obviously, nudity is a no no. But more risque topics, such as homosexuality or certain fetishes really piss off the moralists and tend to get flagged quickly. The flip side to that coin is that those are often the niches that convert the best, so you've got to strike your own balance and figure out what will tease your potential customers but not offend (too much).

    4. There is such a thing as too much traffic for sexy videos. The reason being that the more people see it, the more likely it is that the WRONG people will see and flag it. I always know there's about to be a problem when I see my traffic suddenly spike without me doing anything. That means one of my videos got a bit too popular and suddenly everyone's looking at it. Soon after, that video gets banned and I've got to do some more uploading. Also, the rise in traffic usually comes with a decrease in overall conversion ratio. The best scenario I've found is a video that's getting a good steady number of views but not a huge amount. Most of my videos get 1,000 or fewer views per day, but I upload a lot. It should also be said that you should really think about your niche when you're choosing keywords. If you just use sexy generic whatever keywords to try and get as many people as possible, the traffic isn't likely to convert. So, hone in on what the people who are likely to actually buy are searching for. You'd be surprised at how much traffic can be had for niches you probably didn't even know existed.

    So, there's the formula. Hope that helps.

    Good stuff. I just started regularly uploading 2-5 videos a day since my old vid (2 months ago) started earning me $1-2 dollars per day.

    pewep, do you use pay-per-sale? Or do you mean by conversion a free-registration?

    My problem is too, that my video get to many views in a few days (7.000 in 3-4 day's), and then get flagged. I'm not uploading many videos, I'm using another method, so that really pisses me off. But as halfalump said, some are staying, who are getting steady views.

    Darkone, you can techincally do it but it's not worth the risk IMO. Just drop some CPA links in those motherfuckers.

    alba - pay per lead but I'm getting a whopper per conversion.

    Edit: I'm kinda niched too.

    But people are searching for those keywords, do you mean that when they are searching offer something what they really want to what is related to there search ?

    My point here is that "Sexy Bimbo Girl Paris Hilton Britney Sextape Horny" may very well get you views, but it won't necessarily get you conversions unless you are in fact sending them to some celebrity sextape site with britney or paris or something. Craft your keywords in terms of the content in the video, and perhaps more importantly, the content of the paysite you're sending them to. Guys searching for big breasts will be more likely to convert at a site catering to that specific niche. Guys searching for nubile teens want exactly that...

    Obviously, there's going to be some overlap. Especially when it comes to more generic offers. This is really more of an art than a science and there's no substitute for just trying a lot of different variations to see what works. But the point is not exactly to get huge views, so much as it is to get targeted visitors as much as possible, because those folks won't be flagging the shit out of your hard work and are more likely to visit the site and buy a membership.

    I tend to stay with offers where it is very clear exactly what the customer wants and there is very little content available on the free tube sites.

    And for anyone curious, membership sites DO convert and, IMO are still the best way to earn money in the adult niche long term. Because after a couple of months, your rebills start to really add up and it can double your income or better.
