    Hi, usually I lurk, trying to find interesting stuff to succeed with.

    I have a tumblr blog based on erotic photos (actually non of them is NSFW) of just one body part - the ass.
    So it took me 2 months to get my first 100/day, and now I am constantly growing, hitting ~150/day for the last 2-3 weeks. To this moment, I have 3700 views.

    I know it's a little number, but I see the potential growth. I already opened another (this time a NSFW) blog that got 700 views in less than a month, mostly because i advertised it with my main blog.

    I have a hard time monetizing the blog - i tried various adult ppc and i hardly get a buck a week. yesterday i switched to adultfriendfinder since they are a shark next to the sardines i tried to make money with (like blacklabelads).

    I need advices. Ideas, how to convert them people to money. I know it ain't easy.

    What I am doing now to try and fix this: I bought a long tail EMD, consisting of three words that i wish to rank for. the three words complete 4-5 keywords of 5k+ searches/month. I'm at the 20th place for a 2 word keyword of 5.4K exact searches. That's after 3 days of buying the domain.

    ---
    It's a bit of a messy message, but i tried my best. it's my second thread here and the previous wasn't successful.

    Thanks.

    I remember reading something on here about monetizing tumblr blogs (can't remember the thread title) that suggested something like you throw in a CPA link that's relevant to your niche every now and then as the clickthrough link of your blog post. But don't put it as the clickthrough link for a lot of your posts because you're more likely to get reported; I guess the amount of CPA links you put in would depend on how many posts you're making.

    My problem with CPA now is that I kinda build trust with my viewers. People will flee away once they get redirected to shit like CPA. That'd make you mad either. But I will consider this anyway.

    I just need to find a good CPA network to try this.

    Not familiar with how tumbler works but is there a way you could have it so people can see some of the photos and when they want to see more you put in content locker to get to the good stuff? This way you don't scare off your regulars and if you have good pics already, they might be so curious to see what lurks behind door #2 so to speak that they will fill out anything you point at them. Just be sure to reward them with good content and then maybe they will point friends toward your site as well.

    Did you try adding adsense ads?
    An tumblr blog example would be http://www.1000notes.com/.
    Once in a while they also promote a product or service.

    Adsense is not compatible with adult content (even if it's SFW). I tried putting adsense in the beginning and the ads disappeared after a week.

    Take some affiliate program which pays to download (there is many and someone just opened new one and made thread here, they accept adult). Under pics post link like - download whole gallery from here: your download link - and they need to do CPA offer before they get to download those pics...
