Does performing search engine optimization for adult sites require special skills that are different from mainstream marketing? Looking at search results for the terms adult seo it seems to be far easier to score with mature content and free porn clips than it is with competitive mainstream niches like "weight loss", "car insurance" and self improvement advice. Exact match domains and explicit anchor texts still work better than spun texts and other shady techniques that are sold for monthly subscription fees. Pretty easy. I have been thinking about offering adult seo services myself, but have shyed away from it, because everybody with a little bit of common sense can do it by themselves, basically. But: there is still a growing market for adult seo. Let's find out: Why?
Webmasters who work in adult are not necessarily porn surfers. Yet, many cash programs chose to plaster admin areas, logins, stats and even payment slips with explicit images and messages. For business minded webbies this comes as a negative side effect, diminishing opportunities to work with programs while traveling or working in public areas. We neither want to work in dark corners nor do we want to observe a cum-splattered genital close-up appear on our laptop screen while checking stats in a Starbucks Cafe or while using inflight wifi on an aircraft from Dubai to Sao Paulo. And after all, we see so much porn, why do we need to see the same stuff every time we want to check stats? It just makes no sense. We found a way around this.
Until it's demise in 2010 Epassporte NV of Curacao was the first electronic wallet provider for adult webmasters. Webbies were able to collect many smaller affiliate payments into one wallet enabling them to withdraw combined funds by wire or offshore issued debit card. Other, similar services emerged with Canada based Paxum becoming the business leader for adult affiliate payments, today. Years after the disappearance of Epassporte services the original domain epassporte.com expired and was deleted from domain registry to be auctioned off to the highest bidder on Dropcatch.com.
Mainstream marketeers recommend promoting products on pinterest.com, a portal allowing users to stick images from websites onto a virtual pinboard. Along with those pins posters are able to select tags, add informative text and enclose links back to the source page of pinned image. Pin boards also exist for adult content, the most famous being sex.com. What's the scoop on marketing porn niches via pin boards? Basically, it's nothing but spam similar to social bookmarking sites. Without prejudice towards spammers it can work well for those who operate in small niches while using common sense.
Blog owners have to fight spam comments all the time. Staying clear of annoying content is easy by disabling comments or by deploying plugins such as Askimet or Spambee. But how can a site administrator delete existing comments all together? You might have underestimated the impact of spam or believed captchas and other plugins would protect you. However, spammers found ways around your protection by injecting fake trackbacks and utilizing cheap captcha solving services using bots for spamming. Suddenly, you are faced with thousands of useless comments. This dead data inflates accounts. It may slow down database performance when reaching critical levels. The question is: How to mass remove spam comment in bulk?
People who use control panels for their hosting have an easy way of purging all comments with one click, basically.
Some weeks ago me and a friend who produces videos in Japan went to have lunch for a business meeting inside a crowded shopping mall. During our search for a Sushi place we rode the escalator up to the fifth level. What I did not know: while we rode the electric stairs my friend placed his iphone on his knee to take upskirt footage of two office ladies standing in front of us. They were certainly worthy of looking at them. However, he insisted on showing off and explaining to me what he was doing. I was slightly surprised and mildly offended. Why would he brag about that in public? The sexy office ladies looked at us and appeared to be shocked. Obviously, they understood English very well. They threatened to report us to police and security. I made a promise to myself during this unpleasant situation: Never ever meet with pornographers again! The situation started to escalate and the ladies demanded to see his camera roll.
Few months back I wrote a piece about Taiwanese courts rejecting claims of Japanese porn producers regarding piracy:
A few weeks ago, a German court had to make a decision on claims of an American offshore company producing adult movies in Europe. The Munich based court ruled that normal pornographic illustrations and streaming images are not worthy of copyright protection as they are neither considered art nor profession. Their conclusive verdict is an epic defeat of a struggling industry and an ill prepared company who was unable to provide basic evidence.
For many webbies it seems to be like a huge compliment: an agency wants to buy a link from your site and pay several hundred Dollars for your service. No, they don't just ask for their link to be placed on your site. Usually, they require you to publish a page or post on your site with an article they provide. Inside this article they place a link to their website(s). All you need to make sure of is their article will receive a link from your homepage and sitemap.
Arizona based factoring company CCBill is possibly the best known credit card billing company for adult sites (see here for list of programs). They are very popular because they offer consolidated payouts for affiliates and programs. For smaller webmasters it means they are receiving commissions from many different sponsors into one account with weekly payouts. While analyzing my stats and logs, I do see webbies have questions regarding CCBill's payout schedule from time to time.
It's highest quality porn with beautiful Asian girls - although censored in many cases: Japanese Porn. Neutral observers will possibly say it's much more of an art to produce this hot content in Japan compared to lousy Quality of British or American sex movies. Fact is, most Japanese porn in circulation online and on DVD is pirated by the Taiwanese Mafia. Chinese gangsters make the biggest profit off of Tokyo pornstar exploits while expensive to run movie studios from Japan face financial losses.
