I?ve been lurking the site for quite some time and finally decided to sit down and try to be productive for the sake of the board. I do not see much discussion about the money to be made within the adult industry here so I?m going to give you a in-depth look into how I have managed to make an average of $1,000 a week promoting adult content through blogs. First, do not believe anybody who tells you that there is no money to make within adult anymore. Is the money substantially less? Of course. Instead of making $4,000 a week, some now only make $2,000 a week. Big deal though, right? That is still a nice chunk of change. Also, the whole industry is changing. TGPs no longer rule the landscape and illegal tube sites are to blame for a lot of financial ?instability? within the industry. However, blogging is still on the rise within adult marketing and money is still there to be made simply because of SEO and organic traffic. Firs t things first though. You need to pick a niche that you would like to promote. If you wish to follow me through this step-by-step, fine. If not, pick a niche that you would be interested in. The more specific the better. If you pick a niche that is too broad you WILL have trouble building traffic. For the sake of this tutorial, we will be going with amateur emo girlfriends. There is not a lot of keyword competition for this yet and the biggest sites that promote this niche are still relatively young. With some hard work and SEO know-how, you can be competing with them for traffic and money within a couple months. First thing you need is a domain name. I do all my hosting with Certified Hosting. They are extremely adult content friendly and cheap. They are the best customer service I have ever experienced and I have yet to experience any kind of problem with them. Also, by hosting your domain with Certified Hosting, you gain access to the automatic install of Word Press on your server. After you research keywords for your amateur emo girlfriend site (Google Keyword Tool, etc.) go ahead and set-up your site. If you need instructions on how to properly purchase a domain fro Certified Hosting let me know and I?ll help you further. Once you have your domain, it usually take Certified Hosting about an 10 to 15 minutes or so to properly register it and give you full access to it. In order to access the backend of your website, go to the following URL: http://www.yourdomainhere.com/cpanel Enter your login and password. Scroll to the very bottom of the page and select Fantastico. From there, select WordPress and install it on your main domain. It is that simple. After a few moments, you will have a fully functional install of WordPress ready to go. Again, if you need more help, let me know. Next, go back to the main menu of your Cpanel and go to File Manager. Go to you public root. You will be brought to your file manager where it list every file on your server. You will see an index.html and an index.php. Go ahead and either delete index.html or simply rename it so something else. This enables your WordPress install to be your main index. This is a step that you must do or your site will not be visible. Now that you have properly installed WordPress on your servers, go to: http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin Fill in your username and password. You will then be brought to your WordPress administration page. There a quite a few tasks to do here so follow closely. First, delete all links that are already installed. Once you do that, create two categories: Blogs and Other Directories. Once you create them, leave them go. We will come back to them later. Next, go to your Permalinks section and chose to create your own permalinks style. Input %postname%.html This is important for SEO purposes. Next, go to appearances and chose a theme that you like. Make sure it is at least two columns. Install and activate it. Now we move on to plugins. The most important plug-in you want to install is All-in-One SEO. Go ahead and install and activate it. Go into the settings and fill in all the required information. Again, do some keyword research for this to make sure you will get the most bang for your buck from Google. I also like to install StatPress . You can also install an anti-spam plugin of your choice. With that, your adult blog is now successfully setup and ready to go. But, now, we need content to put on there. I will give you the two affiliate programs I use that generate the most cash for me. I recommend you sign-up with these two if you decide to promote amateur emo girlfriends (I would recommend using Pay Per Sale on these as RevShare does not really work for FHGs much). 1.http://www.amakings.com/track/MTg4Mzo0OjU/ (non-affiliate: http://www.amakings.com) 2.http://www.niceratios.com/?ref=mygfisbetter (non-affiliate: http://www.niceratios.com) I also like to promote the I?m Live cam site by simply placing a banner on the side of the blog. Gets some money using RevShare. 1.http://Affiliate.ImLive.com/wmaster.asp?WID=425266632&promocode=BCODEL0000051_00000 (non-affiliate: http://www.imlive.com) I?m Live is currently offering $175 per-sign-up through the rest of October so I would quickly set my site up and begin to push this sponsor hard. Go through the process of signing up with both and you will be given immediate access to the proper marketing material. Now simply start filling your blog up with the adult content. I like to use this format: Use the free-hosted-galleries (FHGs) from the affiliate programs and save to your desktop three large photos that to you like. Create a new post in WordPress and write a small paragraph on each photo using as many as your keywords as you can. Below the paragraphs, place the thumbnails of the photo with them linking to the larger image off your server. Below the photos, put your call to action. Something like ?Want to see more hot emo amateur girlfriends doing the unthinkable? Click here now!? Then simply link the ?Click Here Now? to your affiliate program. Pretty simple, huh? It really is but it takes a lot of work to keep the site updated. I like to do at least one post a day ? at minimum. Before you publish your post, remember to makes tags for it and place it into the proper categories that you can create. DO NOT FORGET TO ENTER ALL THE INFORMATION INTO ALL-IN-ONE SEO. The plugin is usually installed at the bottom of the create a post page so simply drag it up further so you don?t forget to use it. And, as usual, it is important to build backlinks. There are plenty of adult blog directories you can submit to along with adult social bookmarks. A simple Google search will yield results for you. If you are unable to find them, let me know. There are also forums where you can talk to other adult webmasters and exchange hardlinks. Some of the better ones include: 1.http://www.gofuckyourself.com 2.http://netpond.com 3.http://www.ynot.com Just remember to be polite and not pushy on the sites and you have people exchange links with you. You can also leave comments on other adult blogs with your link. May favorite thing to do is to download some of the videos that sponsors supply to you and then upload them to YouTube with a watermark for your site and your URL in the description. I regularly get a hundred hits a day or so to my site this way. Currently, I run three blogs. All of them make me money ? as I said, about $1,000 a week. Not to shabby. Two of the three are relatively young compared to my first blog that makes a lot of the money. As the newer two mature and gain backlinks I would assume that my weekly income is going to go up. For examples of what your site should look like, visit one of my younger blogs: http://www.punkyouporn.com http://www.doctorjizz.com Both are pretty good examples of a quality adult content blog that will make you cash. YOU HAVE TO BE PATIENT THOUGH! The money will not ? and I repeat will not ? start rolling in overnight. I had a ratio of 1:3,000 before I made my first sale. But now, nearly six months after beginning this project, it is a rarity if I don?t make a $30 sale every single day. I can tell you this: Thousands of people decide to become adult webmaster everyday ? and I would estimate that 99% of them don?t make it pass the first week and they realize that it isn?t quick cash. If you stick it out, YOU WILL make cash. No questions asked. The hard work that it takes hardly seems like work sometimes because you spend most of the time looking at hot naked emo chicks. If you follow these steps, get backlinks and link exchanges, use All-In-One SEO, and submit your sites to adult social bookmarking places, you will make money. I'm by no means going to twist your arm but, if you follow this method, I'd appreciate it if you used my above affiliate links as a small token of your appreciation. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I hope many of you have success with this method like I have. And I also hope that was a first good post to place on BHW. Good luck and take care!
