    G'day everyone,

    been reading a lot of your posts, soaking up info posted here;
    everytime i needed some help and i googled for the solution there was a blackhat world post pointing at some solution, so i finally joined and since you sound like a nice community and here i go with my thoughts about my first nooby journey.

    About myself, i have been a part-time web designer for about 5 years now, typography junkie pixel-eyed enthusiast always taking projects for local bussinesses and such.
    Low price, payments come always very late.... so i started this journey half for the fun of it, to improve seo & advertising skills and of course for the money as well.

    My steps & project so far are the following:

    Project: Adult Tube videos.
    Automated WP scrubbing videos from other porn tubes.
    1 domain in english
    linked to all social media and bombing tweets every 3 or 5 minutes with relevant hashtags...

    Ads through:
    Crak Revenue
    Plug Rush
    Juicy Ads
    Tube camgirl

    Project is today 4 days old today and my "revenue" and hits so far are the following:
    day1 - 0.08 $
    day2 - 0.28 $
    day3 - 0.53 $
    (day 3 was sunday so i expect day 4 -monday- comes lower maybe?)

    analytics shows:
    443 page views
    255 users
    79% rebound
    2:41 mins average time

    I followed a how to on this forum from Reinstecker on how to create an automated wordpress photo gallery which helped a lot!


    After these 3 days my thoughts / questions:

    Stumbleupon is sending me more traffic than twitter (that came like a surprise to me!)
    and on the other side Facebook has hardly sent me one visit ~:-/ (literally)

    PlugRush is by far the best monetizer.... i barelly get one cent from the other sites.
    Is there anything i'm doing wrong??
    I tried to level them 3 ads providers evenly across my site but since i see plugrush is (dunno why) working much better than all the others i decided to puts some more ads from them on my site!

    I don't know if some of you guys has some advice for me coming from your experience, something i should be aware of... all advice is welcome!

    My target? don't have one XD
    10 bucks a day, 50 bucks a day... everything comes good right? :)

    Best greetings to you all and hope to hear from your feedback! :)

    Day 6...... update

    Earnings... 0.83$
    sessions yesterday: 316
    return 12.5%
    average session time: 2:01 mins

    Moved ads around a bit yesterday and added ex0lick, see which come more profitable.
    Been looking around for some info regarding ads optimization but can't find anything... guess i must go through trial and error process then.

    twitter is bringing me 50% of the traffic...
    and surprisingly flipboard is bringing around 10%, cool because never really signed up with them.

    i'll be back tomorrow see how it goes...

    Thanks y'all!

    hi there, just a regular shared cpanel 2$/month hosting.
    activated cloudflare & total cache to improve response, etc and seems to be holding up.

    Will try to improve mobile responsive layout/design today.

    G'day everyone

    Today is one month since i opened the page :D

    Ok, some stats:

    Average visits / day: 600
    Direct visitors: 22%
    Returning: 14%
    Top Referrers

    1. t.c0 - 1,412 Visits
    2. flipb0ard - 446 Visits
    3. 7umblr - 283 Visits
    4. s7umbleup0n - 141 Visits
    5. m . faceb00k - 53 Visits

    Site Usage
    12,951 Visits 72.51% Bounce Rate
    22,612 Pageviews 00:01:36 Avg. Time on Site
    1.75 Pages/Visit 86.88% % New Visits


    Revenue yesterday: 1.07 USD !! yay! :)

    During this time it's been basically a test / trial / error regarding how shall i place ads, which ads providers to use..... I found juicy ads works best for me. Dunno if it's the most profitable one or not but I feel it's working for me, besides they sold 2 of my ad placements so that was nice.

    Also tryinng reddit, commenting some youtube videos... whether that is of any success is yet to be seen.
    Autoposting photos with dlvr it & iftt to 7umblr & 7witter.
    Using a pretty useful plugin for w0rdpress too: "Revive old post" ... which takes any of your oldest posts and twitts it away every 2 or 3 minutes.
    My page has now over 6000 videos and over 27K tweets.

    To be improved:
    I got 2 facebook accounts banned during these weeks. And still trying to work out how to use faceb00k to bring more traffic.
    Seems i'm stuck at the 700 followers mark on twitter... i need to increase that figure too.
    My page is responsive but all my videos are on flv format so i'm still losing all the mobile visitors :( need to find a workaround for that issue too.
    Bounce rate... guess related to the flv issue mostly.


    Still on the process to clone the first site and make a second one, probably gay or shemale or whatever niche... thing is i am a design freak and i keep wasting time on design and typography and such :D :D :D
    but so far the process is being fun!

    hey, is fun also to see the reaction on colleagues and friends when you tell them you own a porn site ;D

    Hi there... I'm just embedding the videos.
    Popular porn sites such as redtube & others encourage you to do that.... since at the end of the day it delivers traffic back to them.
