    Hello

    I hope I'm asking this question in the right section, if not mods feel free to put it somewhere else.
    Anyhow, I'm pretty green when it comes to IM, but I happpen to work for a client that has around 250 xxx domains. Those are all pretty good domains, lots of them are EMDs with pretty decent search volumes etc. Till now not much has been done on them, we just put some affiliate stuff up and just left them alone. Anyhow, some are already performing pretty well, have some good SERPs. Most of them are still PR 0, but some are PR 2 or 3.

    So, I know there are some pretty experienced and knowledgable people on BHW and I would greatly appreciate their opinions.
    Which way to go from here? How would you use these sites best for marketing? How to pick what sites will be money sites? Is it possible to make some small network for backlinking purposes etc? Any idea appreciated.

    Thanx

    The best way will be to make micro niche websites using these domains with aff. links or dating CPA offers.

    OP didn't mention that the domains are on .xxx TLD. He said his client has xxx domains.

    So, to the OP, what TLD are those domains on?

    if its xxx TLD that would probably be the best way to monetize them, don't see much people after these xxx domains and selling links is not so much of an option with this TLD

    They are all .xxx TLD. But as I said, these are mostly EMDs for keywords that have pretty big monthly search volume. O know everybody says the EMD doesn't play role anymore, but, for example, one of my domains on the 1st google page for 4 keywords that together have over 300K searches monthly. And thats with absolutely no seo done. That's why I think this stuff have great potential.

    You could build content on a few of them build up some traffic and earnings
    flip your low earners and keep your higher earners to fund building some more
    and so on until you have a few strong sites earning you recurring rev

    one of the things that im intending to try on one of my niches over the next few
    weeks is sms pay wall's 30 - 40 sec into some of the videos

    also from what ive been reading over the last few weeks i would say the days
    of EMD's with low value content good Meta tags ranking front page are
    dead but good EMD's with good content to match is far from dead.

    I like emd myself,but dont like .xxx.It will cost about $25k just to renew the domains,you have to build a solid network fast and flipp the whole (or keep),i dont think many people will buy just the domains coz the .xxx hate in the adult webmaster community

    Thats what I've been thinking about, focusing on a few that I estimate have the most potential and try to build them up. However, what I've been also thinking about is using some of the domains that I'm not actively trying to cash to build some backlinks to money sites. Lot of the domains hass PA/DA over 20 or 30 so I guess those links could count for something. But as I said I'm pretty green in IM and don't know would that be a good idea or would I leave big footprint that way.
    What do you think, is it possible to make a small .xxx network for linking to money sites without leaving a footprint? And ofcourse woud that bring any benefit?

    Whats with sms pay walls,, how does that function? I've never heard of that.
    Thanx

    Yeah I know people don't like .xxx
    However, I think my client has pretty good connections and they will keep and renew the domain that we estimate are worth renewing. So, there's definitely no selling, at least not yet. Which means I have to find the best possible way to monetize them big.

    I would go with (atleast a few) webcam whitelabels,but make sure to use the ones that have seo options,and submit them to search.xxx,they have some traffic (alexa 38k) and only index .xxx sites

    Some thing like this allopass dot com/uk the video would play then
    at a particular point in the video a window would popup over the video similar
    to a CPA content locker asking for there mobile number to receive an access
    code to unlock the rest of the video the code would be sent via Premium Text
    Message's which yeah the network takes a large chunk of but no charge backs ;)

    This sounds pretty interesting. I'd be gratefull, if it's not too much of a problem for you, if you could write some feedback of that method. Or maybe even open a journey topic. I might use it if it works for you. Anyhow, good luck!

    You can start by telling your client he's an idiot for buying all those domains, as if they were worth something because they are a .xxx extension.

    Nobody uses the .xxx search engine and no one cares about that extension. They care about content. Everyone still uses Google and Bing for adult searches.

    As for an sms gateway, i will be very surprised if you find one that allows adult content, let alone micro transactions for the US. Been there. Done that. Got account suspended.

    I know everybody searches porn in google. But a lot of people searching for porn content ad "xxx" to the query so its good to have .xxx in that case. As I said before some pages we have already rank on the first page of google for some keywords with fairy big search volume and thats with no seo, solely because of the domain.

    US traffic im not so concerned about just now my current projects are based on harvesting purchasing and profiling UK opt-in data across several niches for re-marketing to i can implement geo targeting so only UK visitors get the payment wall for the time being.

    In the UK premium services services need to comply with PhonepayPlus code of practice and Adult services need to operate on an adult short codes i.e. short codes beginning with 69*** or 89***. which the carriers will block unless the handset is Adult Verified which allot are as some networks at one point or another were requiring adult verification for things like Facebook

    providing the subscription is under £4.50 it also only requires a single opt-in plus a standard rate confirmation message as the subscription starts.

    UK carriers also request that a users spend is limited at no more than £30 PPPD.
    as the mobile operator is able to claw back any spend over this amount.

    There is allot more but that's just the gist of it for now
