    Been running an adult tube since July...Promoted this bitch in every way I possibly can. Reddit at the start, porn re-uploading afterwards. Now I'm stuck. I setup offshore hosting so all my DMCA complaints are ignored (Thanks to @dev666).

    I was getting around 1.2k organic traffic a day a month ago. Since then my organic traffic has just gone to shit (down by 50%). I found a nice forum I was posting links in threads that people were requesting so everything was relevant...they since banned that from happening anymore so it's hard to keep up the referral traffic anymore.

    I tried going back to reddit but one thing I learned that the bounce rates are complete shit. My stats are as follows so far this month:

    Comparing to last month:

    Screenshot 2020-03-21 at 04.34.27.png Screenshot 2020-03-21 at 04.34.58.png

    My traffic is pure tier 1, I'm using Exoclick for VAST, banners, class pop unders, video sliders and pushes. I also have a whitelabel cam site setup with revshare with a notifications popup on arrival. Also Lospollos navbar smartlink with the popunder every 12 hours.

    I started selling blog posts which has made a bit of money but I dunno I think I'm not doing something correctly here..my main target keyword I'm ranking on the second page. Obviously the gods like pornhub,xvideos etc are ranking the number 1 positions for my keyword which I thought I would be able to outrank with my backlinks? According to semrush I have around 24k backlinks..all mostly porn related.

    Help? :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Reach out to top-lists, some might require a fee, but some will list you free of charge.
    Traffic is usually of good quality.

    you didn't sell your sites lol, but what I'm gonna say is that you got hit by Google's update, and obviously you have to check your on-site SEO as those backlinks won't push you if the on-site SEO is not on the spot

    I did it manually from the beginning of creating of the site, but in your case, you can download the Screaming Frog SEO Spider, and it will analyze your site

    Depending on what your niche porn market is I could help with promotion and links.
    I've got 3k followers and seven subreddits with combined 40k subscribers. The top group is organically grown to 10k. No fake accounts or upvote buying on them.
    I also work with a link-sharing site with 2k visits a day, and that has Gfycat API integration and community participation.

    Reddit doesn't convert plus the bounce rate shoots up. I have a nice bounce rate for the last 3 months.

    nice to see you doing well !!! my organic traffic got a hit also since last year, ever since it remained at it's lowest, until now it still haven increase at all, i believe its not the posting of links anymore, google just do whatever they want to it, maybe just let it be like this and monitor it. It might increase again but if you still havent' see any big increase after 6 months, your status probably be same as mine, gotta depend on direct traffic (try promote more and increase more better user experience, add more nice videos also to retain the users), good luckk bro !

    Random ask:

    How long would it take affect for a big d0follow backlink from a related niche to bump up my keyword rankings?
