    OK, I need some advice and input here...
    I have a non-adult tube site with currently 25000 uniques per month, 99% of them are from search engines. The site only makes a few dollars a day with adsense, so only about $70 a month.

    The people that come to my site from search engines have all inputted porn keywords to find my site, when they get to my site they dont stay long because there isnt any porn on it.

    My idea just now is to delete the entire site, put in my .htaccess file a 404 redirect to the main page, and make the main page a porn video site with my 9 year running sponsor AEBN, which I make a living from since 9 years.

    Please tell me your thoughts on this and if it seems a good idea, or if you would suggest something else.

    Cheers and looking forward to your input!

    P.S. Please dont PM me, Im sick of receiving PM's, share your thoughts with the rest of the forum members!

    Just use a php header() function to redirect the page to whatever page you want. In your case, it is your affilaite porn video account.

    The code is simple to use. You create a blank php page as your homepage and put the following code in the top...Anyone that accesses it will be taken directly to your video site.

    Don't use the 404 error redirect, as those count against you with SE and will eventually get your site de-indexed for being so long without a working page. They log errors in their history about your site and will take you out if they think your site is of no use.

    The header function does the same thing CORRECTLY and gives no error history in doing so.

    Code:

    PHP:
     <?php header" Location:linknamegoeshere.com "); ?>

    Thankyou for your interesting reply...
    So, if I delete the entire site and do as you say in your post, will my millions of pages still be indexed for good with the search engines?

    Or is there a way, so I dont have to delete the entire site, but when someone searches for a video, I can take them to my redirected homepage?

    Don't delete your site, post this as a subdomain, targeting the adult niche keywords and post an additional link to it for anyone looking for ' adult content ' in your current site.

    Then, you don't have to delete anything and have an additional flow of traffic and keywords pulling power to your site.

    As for staying indexed, they will if you keep them in the domain registry as an accessible part of the domain. Leave your current site alone and just create this linked page to promote to that market from your existing domain.

    Eitherway, NO MORE ERROR PAGES. They will seriously get you de-indexed and those pings show in your listings when backlink resources list them and hit that 404, which DOESN'T pass through on a redirect, to the correct subpage you want. For security, the server won't follow the redirect in an error page. It will however, ALWAYS follow a header redirect listing, as they aren't a threat within the server or browser protocals.

    Thanks for you input but Im confused now as you mention SUBDOMAIN.


    If I add the code you provided above to my BLANK index php file, when someone clicks on say google for the video they want, will it ignore the actual exsisting video page that google came up with and redirect to my index.php file?

    That completely depends on the way you do it...

    If you keep your domain as it is and add the ' adult content ' link for those searching for adult videos, your site will still be the same and they will simply be taken off to the seperate redirecting index page if they click on it.

    So, what I suggest you do is this...

    1. Create the new php page that redirects to your adult affiliate site.

    2. post a link to direct traffic coming to your present site, to adult content if that is what they are interested in...by adding a link to your existing page/site, to the new redirect page.

    ( if the traffic searches for your site, they will still come to your original site first this way and you will be able to redirect only the adult traffice hunters. The reason to use the redirect in this method and not just outright link to the page is that with the redirect, your traffic STAYS ON YOUR SITE until the select their first search through your affiliate domain and change the page to their link at that time. )

    3. Directly point adult content keyword campaigns at the new redirect page, which should be on your domain as a subdomain or page within...your choice. It still pulls the same traffice and rank juice to your primary, as you can link back to your main domain in the same way, for users looking for ' non-adult ' content.

    Don't overthink it. Keep it simple and don't make it any more complex than it is, as it really isn't at all. You'll be fine.
