    I've had the idea of creating a porn site for over a year now because I think I have good taste in porn...so why no share my personal collection and make some cash while doing it.

    The process started with finding a domain name, I thought I had found a good one but I was afraid it would be perceived as a knock off and I wanted to make my own brand. Then I went host hunting and damn was this a pain in the axx. I found some good hosts (cloudways, inmotion, flywheel etc) but pretty much all of them don't allow porn. After an endless search of a reputable host, I decided to go with upcloud, it took a while(tons of researching) to set up wordpress but in the end I got it done. They have a free trial so I had nothing to lose testing it out. I am using their $20 plan and it has been good since.

    Then it was time to choose a theme I usually go for nulled themes but this time, I decided to make an investment because I needed the dev support. after contemplating between wp-script and tubeboss. I went with wp-script because it includes the grabber plugin for free.Ultimately I regret this decision because I ended up not using the grabber plugin and tubeboss has alot of features that I really wanted (arg!). Don't get me wrong, wp-script is amazing but I wish I had went with tubeboss.

    Anyways, now it was time to start publishing videos, I deciding to avoid just scraping content from popular sites and handpicked the videos to ensure quality. 1 major problem was finding somewhere to host the videos. I did not want to use openload because that will drive away possible return visitors, I thought about going legit and pay for video hosting but that would be too big of an investment. BTW I invested $65 in this project ($50 for the theme, $10 domain, $5 ssl) and remeber I got 1month free hosting.

    Back on track now, I am now using google drive to host my videos but this will not be long term, I will go legit and buy hosting as soon as I am in the green. As to how I use gdrive? There are ways to get direct link to gdrive video, you can find out if you search hard enough. I am also using blogspot to host my images.

    On the fist day, I published 40 videos in 8hours of straight work. I wanted to keep to 100 videos before I started getting traffic.

    By Aug 4 my site was up and running. It was loading in less than 1 sec and I was happy af (ps: I am a speed junkie). By the second day, I had I had a total of 800 visits so I decided to put a few banners ads. When researching on adult ad networks I was dissapointed to see how cheap adult traffic was. The cpm is rock bottom, this was discouraging but I continued anyway.

    The two ad networks that I ended up going with are exoclick and juicyads. Exoclick has the better cpm ($0.038 vs 0.25 avg)so far but I will do some futher testing before coming to a conclusion. I also tried adxxx but their cpm is literally SHXT, it's $0.006. I also have a crak revenue banner.

    To date, these are my google analytics stats(see attachment)


    Revenue so far:
    exoclick: $35 (915,000 impressions)
    juicyads: $20 (770,000 impressions)
    crakrevenue: $22 (1500 clicks)

    1 big mistake I made was using pop unders so early. I used it for 1 day and my bounce rate went from 15% to 40% and my traffic took a 30% dive. I will refrain from using until I reach 15k-20k uv a day.

    Right now, I am looking for the best ways to monetize my traffic without using pop unders. I would really appreciate any input you might have. I am looking into affliliate networks but most of the big payouts are pay per sale and I don't think that's right for my traffic. I am currently using 1 cam banner from crak and it's doing ok...I think.

    I havent's got any of the money yet because of minimum limits but I requested a payout from exoclick and it was approved.

    I hope I will have time to update this thread from time to time. Any relevant questions are also welcomed.

    To be honest, I don't know much about porn seo. only 15% of my traffic is from google. SEO is difficult for porn. I get most of my traffic from uploading videos to xvideos and watermarking.

    They will probably put ads on your site. I would rather complete control of my site. But you can try and make your own journey post

    Damn already almost a million views in under a month?

    So traffic is just from people manually typing your site after seeing watermark?

    so you basically extracted videos from main porn websites and redistributed them through your new website?

    how do you extract videos without the loss in video quality?

    "There are ways to get direct link to gdrive video"
    So your website has a thumbnail of a porn image, clicking that image will redirect you to gdrive video?

    what host will you be using later on to host your porn videos?

    your only method of advertising and marketing was through posting a watermark of your porn website url on a video posted to a main porn website?

    thanks and sorry for my noobie questions.

    aoao video watermark pro

    I have been searching for a good video host that's cheap. The best I found was bunny cdn. They charge $0.005 per GB and they have useful features like hotlink protection and Auth. I might end up going with them but if anyone knows any other host feel free to mention it.

    As of writing this, it's 8:45 and I have 1.1k visits, 13k page views and 34 users online.

    Interesting, thanks for sharing!
    Why don't you think affiliate products will work for your traffic?

    Yes

    It's easy to download videos from porn sites. I use idm.

    No, I have a video player on my site that streams the direct link from Google drive. So the user never leaves my site.

    I'm thinking about bunnycdn but I am still searching

    Yes. This is my only method of promotion right now

    Hi. Have you had any success on two tier referrals on porn affiliate programs? I was thinking about setting up a site for just affiliate referrals to porn affiliate programs.

    I just don't think that people who watch free porn are willing to sign up for paysites. Because I wouldn't (lol). But maybe I'm wrong... I will try it eventually when my traffic increases.

    Haven't tried that yet. Only doing free sign up cams for now

    I was thinking affiliate products like sex toys based on your porn niche, not pay porn sites.
    For example, if you had a BDSM tube you could do bondage gear affiliate products.
