    I have an adult site that averages 3K uniques per day and 30K page views a day. What are some adult friendly ad networks out there and what kind of CPC/eCPM can I expect?

    Also what are the best ways to increase traffic? Adult sites don't usually link a lot. Or do I have to resort to traffic exchange sites?

    I'd say you can go with Adult Friend Finder and chaturbate ads. I've heard good things about both.

    I have a Site with a bit more traffic, but almost the same. At first I only used juicyads, but then I tried exoclick,blacklabelads,plugrush and a few others.
    Plugrush Ads and Plugrush Popunders both earn me more than juicyads ads and Popunders. I read a lot of bad things about blacklabelads, but it also makes me more money than juicyads. Exoclick is also not bad for me.
    With juicyads alone I made $3 a day. No I replaced most Ad spots from Juicyads, but still use it and I make $4 with Plugrush, $0.50 with Juicyads, $3 with Blacklabelads and $2.50 with Exoclick.

    So my Earnings jumped from $3 to 10 which is good.
    But my traffic is not increasing anymore. Does anyone know how to boost traffic. I use Addthis and I link from different Boards and Tumblr.

    I'd say a good way to bring traffic is to:

    1) Create accounts on several adult sites that allow user uploads
    2) Watermark your videos with your site name
    3)Upload them to all the sites you created accounts for

    Maybe you should launch your own version of adult dating? Maybe an expansion? Could be lucrative.

    how is crackrevenue when it comes ot payment? do they pull any typical BS at payout time?
    I will prefer to have an ad company though that pays for pop unders or pop ups or for cpm per user basis.

    You want to go for "free" trials etc. if you want conversions. I dabbled in adult sites a few years ago and conversions are brutal. You either need a fuck ton of traffic or a free offer(s) that converts really well. It's a tough industry now with all the tube porn man, good luck though.

    If I was you I would concentrate on building a fan base and a lot of traffic. In other niches your amount of traffic could make some good money, but in adult you aren't even on the map.

    That is a very small amount of traffic in the adult niche, but I guess the best way to monetize it is with juicy ads/ plugrush (had similar experience with both) and to have webcam offer ads.

    Adult traffic is tricky. You have to do "everything" in your power to convert. Try different offers, use A/B testing, try an opt-in (if you're using dating or penis growth or some similar product)... use exit pops and show them something else (depending on your traffic demo that could be one of many things...
