    So I'm thinking about venturing into adult tubes in the near future.Not expecting to make the new pornhub or make any reasonable profit out of it, I just want to learn how it works.Hell, if it brings in $5 every other day by some miracle it'll be a welcomed surprise :p

    I am currently signed up with one of the programs that hosts your tube for free, allows you to customize it in some extent, put ads and so on and redirects a portion of your traffic as a compensation.What i want to know if there is a way for me to embed videos from major tubes that belong to a specific niche.I tried using the xml feeds of some adult sponsors who provide some lousy 1 min long clips just to see how it works, but i noticed that even though the xml feed would provide me with a video, title and duration it would not provide me with the tags and plus the content was crap.

    What I want to know is if there is a way to mass-embed niche specific videos from tubes with their own tags.Anyone who has gone that road before able to shed some light?

    PS:Excuse me if my English is not very understandable, I've been awake for what seems like a century.

    I did this before. I used wordpress with some tube-like template on it with a plugin called "PHP MyVideoBlog Pro". It automatically pulls vids from popular porn tube sites of your choice.
    Porn is not my niche so i quit. Hope this goes well for you.

    Edit: Site started lagging after something like 10k pages were generated. I think it was because wordpress is php and i had cheap hosting (about 2$ a month). It would be better to have it done in static html.
    If i were to start over this again, i would go for some very light html cms system + content pulled with the help of zennoposter. And forget that crap who puts ads on the site. Get your own hosting.
    Will post some more tips if you decide to go for it..

    Wow thanks a lot man.You've given me a lot of stuff to research.I've seen the wp templates but since I just wanted to do a test drive and then dive in if i thought it was worth the investment so I just went with a self-hosted program don't know If you're familiar with them so I can't do anything apart from adding videos a logo and a name.How do you monetize the traffic if you don't put ads?From what I've heard adult traffic doesn't convert very efficiently unless the niche is really specific so I was just thinking about using popunders and selling traffic.Chump change but I am more interested into how it works since I wasn't hoping to generate any income at all from it.Would definitely be interested in what you have to share if you have the time at some point.

    He didnt mean that u'dnt put ads. rather he was telling that you shouldn't go for free hosting providers who put ads on your pages in return.

    Now it makes more sense (i blame sleeplessness) , but the ads are mine.The hosting providers earn by redirecting a percent of my traffic as I already stated in my first and pretty incoherent post.Thanks for filling the communication void!

    Exactly.
    Thats even worse than having a free pornhost with their adl-link on your site, and you will never know what percent is taken away. Traffic is your money and you need it all.
    If you dont want to pay you better do it on some popular free host that doesn't allow porn (they probably wont notice your site), and upgrade when profits come in.

    I used ppv method for monetisation and got about 0.4$ / 1000 views. I wanted go for ppc, because my ads got up to 10% ctr, but couldn't get approved for juicyads account by phone. Juicyads are best adult ad provider from what i have heard. I ended using Exoclick and Adxpansion. Tip: Networks pay much more for uniques than for just views so use some ad switcher plugin.
    If you have some local domain named porn site or if you get local traffic, then try approaching small adult-shops and sell them ad-space for more $.

    Feel free to ask help if needed.

    I've seen you interested to make money with adult sites. I recommend you to use plugrush , it's a big advertising network, pay very good so far.

    They also have mobile ads, it's more like redirect, however I make a dolar every day on autopilot from that too. To be honest with you, I don't use adult videos, I use cost per action affiliates to earn from there too.

    So I recommend use adult affiliate sites to get some content from which you make money, also put ads from plugrush to earn even more. This way you don't lose nothing. All traffic convert in money in a way or other. good luck and I hope I helped.

    You've been extremely helpful so far I can't thank you enough.I decided to stop the whole thing with the self hosted tube a couple of days ago as after a lot of research I figured out they did not allow embedded content only sponsored vids from adult affiliates.To be honest, even if they did I wouldn't go through the trouble after your advice.

    I am indeed very interested in making money in the adult sector.I seem to have a lot of trouble getting traffic in every other niche and I really don't mind that adult traffic "converts less" as they say.I just want to work with something i enjoy and have a stable income while learning how things work.Thanks for your suggestions, after i dropped the idea of the self-hosted tube I was thinking about doing something else that will effectively do exactly what you suggest; squeeze every cent out of my traffic.

    Thanks to everyone who answered, I really appreciate your help!

    You can setup a website at 100tb.com. They allow adult content but be warned that if someone sends a DMCA removal you'll have 24 hours to comply or provide info showing your the copyright holder or they'll shut your site down. If you go with a cheaper host like GoDaddy they shut you down and ask questions later.

    Also you can get video embed codes at github.com/xfloggernetwork/embeds

    They use a bunch of xhamster, porntube and tube8 videos.
