    My journey with doorways began in 2010, when I started learning Python. Scraped one of the torrent tracker with educational literature and made doorway based on it. I uploaded books on the file sharing service and received my first $100. Before that, I was involved in the MFA and MFS (Made for Sape) sites, which paid for the hosting, but after the first money from The Internets that could be held in my hands I left sales manager position on computer store and went on this journey.
    Until 2015, everything was going fine: I worked a couple of hours a day; the average monthly income of $800, which is not bad for Russia; but then local war against piracy began. This killed my income by the end of 2016, driving me depressed. All I did in 2017 was watching TV shows and drinking vodka. About the time spent on watching TV, I think, as the practice of the English language. Well, everything is clear with vodka.
    On one of sites, a "kind person", in the form of revenge I assume, posted information about webmaster form adult niche. All of his domains, statistics from TDS and CPA networks. After checking the information, I decided to copy his method. It was the end of 2017.
    For a few days I wrote a parser and started using WordPress to create similar sites. The first batch of 20 domains gave 4,000 visitors a day in 2 months, 16 domains Google filtred on the first month - the rest in the third but this volume of traffic gave mee hope for good income. I burned 80 more domains in a next half a year, but stopped because tired of seeing 2,000 visitors per day on the counter.

    Studying Google serp I found fresh web of tubes for Asia, with an average traffic of 500,000 per month. Made 12 and traffic starts to go.

    And although recently I had to spend a lot of time on moving from digitalocean, since they started taking VAT, I will continue to work since the alternative for me is a seller at the grocery store.

    Sorry for my English.

    Thanks.
    This is imonetizeit adult dating smartlink, lospollos - not much better. Banners and other images ~10% CTR, tier-1 ~30%. Do you think I can get much more from this traffic?

    I would definitely try other networks. Adverten for example or crack revenue (even though I have heard they are not that great). What type of offers are you advertising? PPL or PPS? You could try PPS if you have a niche traffic (for example asians or whatever).

    Smartlinks (ppl), without direct offers, since their selection and tracking takes a lot of time, and the increase in revenue is doubtful. I consider direct offers as income optimization. I think, that if my mix-adult traffic converts on smartlinks from different partners badly - direct offers will be converted even worse, though payments on them are higher. But I try other ad networks. Today I tested profitsocial smartlink:

    On my tube sites SE traffic is growing steady,
    060119tubesSE.jpg
    but this traffic is dirt cheap:
    060119exo.jpg
    060119me.jpg
    First - exoclick 'in video' banner, second - banners on page (CPA smartlink).
    Will try English and niche targeting.

    1) Hi! How do you see traffic when do analyzing ? DO you use Similarweb? But it lies always. Кароче вот по русски :) Как ты проверяешь трафик у конкурентных сайтов, ведь similarweb показывает преувеличенную статистику и часто врет.
    2) How do you bypass copyrigth issues, because you use copypasted content? Часто ли тебе прилетают абузы за копипаст. Вроде в бурже легко стучать на кого-то и быстро банят. И вообще что думаешь про адсенс и доры?
    3) You said about vodka but you forgot bears :) Ты забыл написать про медведей как же русские без медведей :)

    1. Average value of semrush, serpstat etc.
    2. Not often. For the entire past year twice. I just delete page if have complaint. AdSense with adult content sites is not make much sense. I not competent enough in other niches to talk about monetization with AdSense, but heard that splogs are stIll a live and not as good as it used to be.

    I thought I found a gold mine, but with this volume of traffic - just sad results. Working on "download file" project (download button), but transferring 30Gb of files from the_big_tube_site to filesharing service is time consuming. Any suggestions to improve monetization?

    What do you think about PLR articles? They are free for copyrigth. So you can copy it legaly. But they have bad quality.

    I don't have experience with PLR articles. As replacement for lorem ipsum texts - I think PLR is good enough. I use NLG (markov and snippets).
    Thank you.

    As to spike in exoclick 2019-01-16 - someone trying to get my account in to ban I think. But support said that all ok, so - ok.

    Did some little test with CR. Lospollos and imonetizeit for now is better for my type of traffic.

    1) Can you explain little about content? Copypasted with mix other pices copypasted content? or copypasted whole articles from other sources?
    2) What about images? Do you upload it on your hosting or put links to images.
    3) So you upload 10.000 articles and then you get like 100 visitors per day from these 10.000 articles? How quick do you see results?
    4) Your articles short or long?
    5) I`m guess you don`t use wordpress?
    6) I think from 10.000 articles stolen from other resources you may get copyrigth issue. Because it is not Yandex who love copypasted content there difficult to abuse.

    1. For now Google snippets + Markov text generation. Before - a mix of sentences and h-tags from the Google top 30 sites.
    2. From my server. It's video screenshot or free pics from sponsors.
    3. Basically - correct. 2-3 month for organic search and 2-3 days for social traffic.
    4. Now - short. Before - long (more than 300 words).
    5. Plain HTML and python if dynamics needed. WordPress is too heavy for my purposes.
    6. May, but I dont get any except for 2 trademark issues in last year where my site get google top on keywords that they track.

    So it is not readable text? Нечитаемый бредотекст?
    What do you mean "sponsors" ? Is it CPA?
    So you only monetize with CPA?
