    The story is simple.

    Started a site a while ago, for my personal entertainment. And by site I mean - blog, WP powered, exclusive with Photos (no text in posts), Adult - but with Unique content that is not in any way Sexual - all girlst are clothed, but Sexy.

    After 1 year I didn't monetize it at all - and bills for hosting and domain come.

    One friend told me to start optimize the blog and monetize, because the GA stats were looking promising.

    After 1 more year, I now know a bit about link-building, keywords, etc. but still didn't start to take off with the revenue. My site is now around 150~ unique / day and after one of the two publishers simply vanished (blackblabla advertising) I was left with a JuicyAds account that summarize about 12$.

    Billing period again.

    I'm now hitting the all best, days, weeks and months in terms of visitors, visits came from search and so on. I'm around around 500~ unique / day and my balance is around 30$ in my JuicyAds account. I've started using PlugRush and the trade trafic stats makes me intrigued a bit.

    SO I Pay again for one more year (current year)


    As far as my concerns, I started doing manual work with Backlinking and Partering on Linkspun, create a support Tumblr blog that has an own domain (that has now around 1000 followers) and it's linking on everypost to my site, and using dlvr.it to post my blog posts to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr linked accounts for my "money" site. --- but I'm willing to scale it up a bit and looking for methods to do this (what would you suggesst?).

    Till now:
    • - ~100$ made from hosting and domain costs(debts);
    • ~30$ in JuicyAds account; All PlugRush revenue that I make I'm hoping for starting a campaign using one of my succesfull Plugs that is now approved;

    • Current Income: ~.35$ per day.



    To be updated.
    Suggestions appreciated.


    Alex.

    I would suggest you not to start a campaign on plugrush... cash it out!
    You seem to have good quality visitors - but you will get the worst traffic in return...

    Have been in adult for a long time, what you have sent in months, they will send back in minutes just to leave you disappointed...

    Thank you all for all the kind words.

    Have been on vacation for some days and only scheduled some posts for the blog. I know I need to automate the site posting somehow - still thinking about it.

    jAds - Delivered 11 unique clicks, 11 raw clicks, 5,633 impressions yesterday.

    Also, i'm considering the advice you guys gave me here, and looking up for other methods to scale it up - as I don't earn much with PlugRush. jAds account balance now is showing
    $32.60 available

    Updates!

    Starting driving traffic from another social source, as it seems that the Facebook Hashtags and Tumblr traffic gone down a bit in the last period - and it's working really good - hitting new visits records / day currently.

    Also someone bought some direct ads - through JuicyAds on my site - ~2$ for 1 week for me.

    35.26 available - and another 3$ pending for next week.


    Is anyone here experienced with Adult Ads? Is anyone out there buying banners at better rates than on JuicyAds?

    From my experience, Plugrush's traffic is very, very low quality. Just an fyi.

    Some updates on my journey.

    I'm now at 1k visitors / day. 50%+ are from US and 20% more from Top Countries - UK, DE, etc.

    I'm close to 50$ on JuicyAds and I will cash it out, without scale this out.

    After I cashout from JuicyAds I will start seeking for new ways to monetize my blog - as currently I have pop unders, ads and mobile redirects from JuicyAds - so I'll have to seek and see who pays the most amount of money on each type of ads.

    Some updates.

    Hit 2k uniques / day - and after that I got penalized after 4th of September Google Update.

    Succeeded to cash out from Juicy 50$ and switched to PlugRush when I deff earn more than from Juicy - and they pay at 25$ milestone through PayPal.

    I've started another blog with a different Adult niche, but for now, i'm so dissapointed because of the penalize I got on awsum.me

    why don't you offer your visitors an advert from some kind of adult friend finder? I heard that they pay for every new signup and they have recurring billing. But this is not my niche.

    I would also try to offer them some clickbank products. Maybe something like "how to be a real man" or "how to date" or anything that you think your visitors may be interested in.

    1-2k uniques per day is A LOT and my best day was when I got like 1055 unique visitors and made around 700$ from them. In a few hours.
    But next day I only got one big 0 of visitors. So you have a lot of potential in your site.

    I don't know how will your visitors convert, but I would suggest you to try with clickbank.

    Well, i'm not at 1-2k uniques / day, and I've tried PPL offer in the past - I don't think I will get a sale in a whole month - because 1 sale = ~25$ and that will be good - but before starting the PPL thing I need more uniques / day.

    It's damn hard to convert in adult, more after my site got somehow penalized.

    But thanks for your ideas anyway, appreciated.
