    Hey guys,

    I've been lurking this forum for a couple of weeks now and finally decided to post my journey here. I've been inspired by Travax' journey http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/pr0n-autoblog-journey-to-50-day.728429/ and by Reinstecker's Method "Make money with (Porn) Auto blogs & Social media accounts" (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/626864-continuation-make-money-porn-auto-blogs-social-media-accounts.html). Main reason for me to be trying this is that I want to be financially independent when I finish my Master's degree. I want to go do a PhD program, but absolutely don't want to be in a position where I have to work multiple jobs to make ends meet. Plus the prospects of a PhD in history (money wise) aren't very great, but hey gotta follow your passion ;). Anyhow, down to business.


    What have I done so far?
    • Set up four automated blogs and one automated tube site on the same domain. The tube site is my main domain and the automated blogs are sub-domains of the tube site.
    • I've done all this using Reinstecker's Method and tweaking it here and there. For instance, it took me a while to find the optimal Wordpress theme, etc.
    • Traffic sources: I'm using Tumblr, Stumleupon, Twitter, and Sex.com for traffic. For my main tube site I'm starting to look at link trading with various other tube websites. The socials network postings are fully automated but I do post to Sex.com manually every day (just a few posts here and there).
    • I have Arrivex cheap hosting for now, no specific reason for using them just followed Reinstecker's suggestion here.
    • I only have 1 IP address and don't use VPN servers for the social media accounts or anything like that.
    Affiliates and ad placement:
    • Currently my active affiliate networks are Crakrevenue, Exoclicks, Plugrush, and Chaturbate.
    • Plugrush traffic trade and sell ad in sidebar of individual posts.
    • Exoclick footer ad and IM popup in corner.
    • Crakrevenue header banner ad and popunder.

    Current state of affairs:
    • Yesterday my traffic from Stumbleupon exploded and I now get around 200-400 uniques from stumbleupon a day (which is huge for me). This helped me to make my first sale via crackrevenue (2.50). The Stumbleupon traffic is pretty shit though and my bouncerates are quite high.
    • Trying to slowly build followers on social media in the hope that that traffic converst better.
    • Also noticed that Sex.com yields quite good traffic. Haven't figured out how to automate posting to sex.com. The NEXT autoposter Wordpress plugin does have a premium adult version script that can do this but costs 250/year which is too much for me.
    • Hoping that the traffic growth from Stumble will keep, but not sure.

    My goals:
    • Long term goal is getting around 25$ a day. I have very little experience with IM marketing and adult websites so this is a learning experience for me too. I hope that keeping this blog post up-to-date will help me stay focused on my task.
    • More immediate short term goals are trying to get more quality traffic, do something with SEO, and try to reduce bouncerate, etc.

    Thank you for reading :) Let me know if you guys have tips, questions, or whatever.

    August 24th Update:

    • Unique visitors across all pages 4 atm, 5th one still working on getting online = (36+927+33+24) = 1020
    • The bounce rates vary but are around 70-80% on the blogs and around 35-40 on the Tube site. Note that I don't use Stumbleupon as traffic source for tube, I don't actually promote it on social media at all.
    • No earnings on Crakrevenue today despite the 176 uniques. Plugrush and Exoclicks amount to about 0.05 today.

    Thanks all for the encouraging words :) Back with a daily update.

    August 25th Update:
    • Finished my 4th automated blog which makes grand total of 5 sites now. 4 automated blogs and 1 tube site up and running!
    • Total unique visitors across all 5 websites today : 32+39+577+29+23 = 671
    • Bouncerate wise same story today (stumbleupon traffic doesn't stick).
    • Conclusion: Stumbleupon still giving good traffic on one of my blogs for some reason, but traffic doesn't convert well at all.
    Total Twitter followers across 4 accounts: about 1100.
    Total Tumblr followers: about 150.

    By the way my Tumblr blogs are all on one account, so 1 main blog and 3 secondary blogs. However, I noticed today that Tumblr allows max of 250 posts a day across all blogs on one account so this might be a problem.
    Not sure what to do about this, maybe open up more Tumblr accounts. Also gaining followers on Tumblr is super slow but it grows naturally by 20 followers or so a day.

    Goal for tomorrow: Figure out how to get better sources of traffic that actually convert. Also, figure out the Tumblr situation and how to get more followers on Tumblr in general. Any feedback if very appreciated :)


    Good night all!

    Hey whats good, BHW people? Here is my daily update and reflection on my goals from yesterday.

    August 26th Update:
    • First things first, the total unique visitors across all 5 websites today : 25+37+1332+27+32= 1453
    • Bouncerates still suck, apart from tube which has one of 45% but only 32 uniques a day though. Also, like you can see the Stumbleupon traffic is really taking off on one blog which has over 1k uniques now.
    • Money wise its roughly the same today. However, I've noticed an increase in revenue form Exoclicks, which is at around 0.30 today.
    • Haven't really figured out how to get better sources of traffic yet, just working on building the social media accounts. Also if anyone knows a way to automate posting to Sex.com, please do let me know :)
    I put an extra PPL popunder on my high traffic blog today from Crakrevenue. I have two popunders from them now and not sure if two is too much, it might be. But, I want to test if the second one does better, so more on that tomorrow.

    Goal for tomorrow: Figure out best ways to monetize the blogs, what banners and offers work best? Figure out how to autopost to Sex.com.

    First of all good luck with your journey.

    Let me ask you a few questions:
    - Why should people visit your blogs? you have something special: like design, content, no-ads. etc?

    I highly recommend the following:
    - start of with no pop-up/unders. Who would visit your blog/tube again if they have to deal with 2 popunders/popups.?
    - look at the competition in your niche. Open 20-25 websites which are your competitors and take only the best parts out of their website and implement them into your main website / tube.
    - go with unique design no matter the cost.
    - content should be very good. Now I don't know your niche, but content is quite important.
    - (Optional): if you have good design and content, buy a little bit of traffic.

    Again, good luck! Be unique.

    Hi Monkey,
    I'm posting to sex.com using a self coded bot. I'm managing 15 accounts on full auto at the moment. But sex.com is not worth the effort, very low traffic from there close to zero.

    Try to find another traffic source because sex.com will not make the deal. Or if u want to try sex.com find someone who can code a bot for u and use proxys. ;)

    Hope this help you with sex.com.

    Thanks for the Feedback, Boris. Unfortunately I don't have any special design or really special content. I have put in good work to make the websites look presentable, and quite honest I'm pleased by the results. The pictures are automatically updated from selected Tumblr RSS feeds. I do my best and use the most high quality/niche specific Tumblr blogs for this. I am constantly looking to upgrade the appearance of my website, but its hard finding a good wordpress theme for an adult picture blog (if anyone has a suggestion let me know :) ). Right now I have a couple of niches, ranging from foot fetish to cuckolding. So, monitoring what works and what doesn't.

    But, I'm a total noob when it comes down to coding. Most of my experiences with that have been manually modifying my theme files in wordpress and seeing what works (a lot of trial and error lol).

    Huh, interesting. For me sex.com (with manually uploading a couple pictures a day) gives better results than Twitter or Tumblr, but I might be doing something wrong on those social media platforms.

    Hey guys, here is the daily update :)

    Woke up today not feeling very motivated at all to work on the websites. But, tweaked things a little bit today. Finally figured out how to get rid of an annoying black bar above my header (knowing no coding is proving to be a hurdle at times). Plus decided to give Plugz a go today, thinking about switching them for Plugrush. Thinking a lot about ad placements today, and probably going to remove the popunders to see if bounce rates drop and people stick around more.

    August 27th Update:
    • Total unique visitors across all 5 websites today : 160+39+967+31+20= 1186, so uniques dropped a little bit today.
    • Revenue: Exoclick for today 0.39, which isn't too bad. Crakrevenue 219 uniques and 0 leads :(
    • Excited about a Fiverr ging that was deliverd today, I've got 100.000+ backlinks to 3 of the blogs and my main tube site today so interested to see how that pans out in the upcoming days/weeks.


    Goal for tomorrow: removing popunder on two/three of the websites to compare bounce rates.

    Is XXX still profitable? A lot of people starting these journeys but the niche is pretty saturated.

    Hey guys, pretty uneventful day quick update:

    August 28th Update:
    • Total unique visitors across all 5 websites today little increase from yesterday, not very significant though.
    • Got 1 lead on Crakrevenue despite removing the popunders from my main two blogs, but removing the popunders didnt affect the bouncerate.
    • Total earnings today from Crakrev and Exoclicks around $1.60
    • Build one more automated blog for another niche, tomorrow I'll make social media accounts for this blog and start that up.

    recommend using firebug firefox plugin for website coding changes if you are inexperienced, it basically allows you to edit code in the client side so you can test changes then apply them to your site/blog ect. (web dev Student here)
