[JOURNEY] My Porn Tube - Road to 5$ Daily

Hi Guys,

reading some inspirational posts on this forum, I decided to open a Porn Tube (even if everyone says IT'S DEAD). So I'm going to share my journey with you, also some tips when possible and all the strategies ( working and not ) I'm using to receive referral and organic traffic.

Started: 28th September 2023


Recognize your Niche
This is the most important part of the whole process. If you aim to generate some revenues but your niche does 10k views month, you just can't be successful. So choosing the right niche is a key part of the whole process.
Choose a niche that you know ( fap on lol ), also try to understand which actress/actors are the most searched, viewed and liked. You can do it by navigating the big Porn Tubes like Spankbang, Xnxx and so on.

Once you found at least 10/15 trending topics/actors, you can start to create your Tube.
Even if, by reading the posts on this forum, most of the users suggests to self-host your videos ( I mean it's not wrong ), in the startup phase, you can still get nice amount of traffic by just embedding videos from bigger tubes.
Try to understand if you can "stole" the video source ( url.ltd/this-is-the-video.mp4 ), instead of using Iframes ecc.



Porn Tube Infrastructure
Another important key is the Infrastructure you're going to use. In fact not all the hosting want to host your porn site, or some act in a strictly way when DMCA enter the game. By doing a fast research on this forum you can find the best hosting for your tube.

If you are going to self-host videos you need 100% a VPS, with FFMpeg module enabled otherwise you'll not be able to process videos properly.
If you want to embed / paste sources like I do, a normal shared hosting can reach the goal easily.

Theme: I'm using WP-Script and Retrotube plus some code customizations
Video Embedding: I've created a JS script to try to automate part of the process, the script is automatically loaded on the source sites using ABC JS-CSS Injector Chrome Extension
Thumbnail Generation: While importing the video using the JS code, into Wordpress I run an Ajax action that create the Video Post and also using this free endpoint ( thumbnail.video ) generates thumbnail. If you need some hints about the whole function, write me in PM.


How to Get the First Visits
If you've experience with site development or wordpress, creating the tube and import script is not that difficult. But getting the first visits can really be a challenge, especially if it's your first experience with Porn.
So how we can get Users? Let's see some strategies that works still today ( but sadly with more restrictions ):


Upload on other Tubes
Sites like Spankbang, eporner and so on, enable users to freely upload videos onto their platforms. Avoid using Actors name and instead try to describe the video content like other ppl does, provide tags and if a description field is available, put your domain there with a call to action ( with out https:// prefix ) ex "Find more FREE Porn Videos on mydomain.ltd".

Bans can come after hours or days, so stay prepared! You can also try to put your Domain in the Title or add you domain as watermark in the video. For this purpose I asked ChatGPT to create me a script in python using moviepy and flask. So once hosted on a server I can call the Flask Endpoint and by passing the video URL as parameter I can get a watermarked version in minutes. I'm using the watermarked version only on third-party sites. Since on my tube mostly they're imported.

By using watermaked videos, if you account and videos are not taken down, you'll receive a lot of free traffic. If your content is valid and "trending", ppl will search for you site 100%. You'll see this as direct traffic in ur analytics dashboard.
Finding more porn tube that enable you to upload videos and are in the same niche you're attacking is really important. So on a daily basis search for other tubes.


Link Exchange and Porn Directories
Another way to receive traffic is to ask for Link Exchanging from other site that are in the same o slightly different niche. Also online you can find a lot of Porn Sites Directories, contact their admin and ask to be added. This approach can really boost your traffic.

Notice: If your site is new, bad indexed on google and is not showing up in tools like similarweb, most of them are going to answer you with a big NO. So I suggest to do this step after 2/3 months or when you reach a decent number of daily visitors. So you can share you stats in the email and try to get the link posted on these websites.

The traffic coming from these websites will be recognized as Referral Traffic into the Analytics dashboard.
I'm still waiting to contact them since the site is pretty new. Will do it once I've more consistent stats and numbers.


SEO Optimization
As always, SEO is king. If you're nice with SEO you'll get tons of organic traffic and rank fast but... if you site is slow, full of ads and not properly optimized you'll receive just nothing. I'm not going to explain you how to do SEO since is not a science and we're on a SEO Forum so, do some research and feel free to Test different approaches.

Just to give you some hints: avoid useless JS, provide images in next-gen format ( ex .webp ), keep the site loading time under 2/3s. If the site is slow, people will just go back and search for a faster site, even if your content is the best on the planet. Remember that people want to fap. Most of the blood is in their di*** not in the brain. This is true for UX too.



Monetization
Now we can talk about Money. There're a lot of Adult networks out there, but differ in how they pay you, what they display, and how much for X metric.

  • PopAds: provide popup and popunders, paying nice in my opinion
  • JuicyAds: provide you banners, in-video and so on. If you're lucky, some ads slots can be purchased by advertiser at fixed prices
  • ExoClick: a famous network that provide banners and in-video.
  • Linkvertise: it's a short link generator ( former adfly ), I use it on Download Link. Before redirecting the user to the Source Video, visitors must skip some ads
Here some screens about my traffic and the networks dashboard.

wtf what is this algeria 9
 
Good job buddy,
I need help to create my website like from scratch can you help me bro
 
I'm also using crackrevenue but it's mainly CPA network, meaning that if no user converts, you earn nothing, so I preferred to use banners and popunders as well so I can still monetize ( less ), and aim to some CPA, but I'm still discovering the best placement and network.

Regarding the traffic, right now 70% is direct, 20% is organic traffic and the rest is referral I receive from a backlink I got.

Most of the direct traffic comes from ppl that already know the tube and users that see my videos with watermarks on Spankbang and erome. Since SEO is competitive and require time for indexing, right now I'm preferring sharing some Videos onto other tubes and try to veicolate traffic to my site. My goal about organic traffic is 33 clicks, all branded. So is ppl that search for the site instead of writing the entire domain.

Also another traffic source I'm trying to increase is the Telegram ones. I've created a telegram channel where automatically I publish the new videos added to the tube, right now counts just 20 members, but growing every day. I'll try to make it more appealing on the website hoping that more users subscribes. In 2 days I received 30 visits from it. The nice part about telegram is that is a traffic source that you own completely, so you're free to advertise your content with out any limit, sort of email newsletter but compleatly free and for some reason nicer.
Just one hint with telegram, try to hid any nudity or sexually suggestive images and videos on your posts, I'm sure as shit they don't like porn on their platform, from my experience when there is enough report to your group/channel it will be banned.

Exactly I don't want your work on it be in vain after it's getting larger, so it's better to be careful from the beginning, trust me I have run twitter, telegram Profiles and groups before and they all don't like leaked copy righted content on their platform, they will ban you at the end once there is enough user reports. Just my two cents
 
How can one become a publisher on Linkvertise? I didn't find any option to register on their website.
 
You're doing a good job. Keep going bro!

I think the biggest concern with porn tube is law. In my country it's considered illegal. How is it in your country?

Just use an offshore hosting, vpn, use crypto for payments, and target traffic other than your own home country with different language, that way noone will know about your site from your country and you will be mostly fine running an adult site if noone sneakily took your device and ofcourse if you're not the original producer of content and just used others content.
