Does it help to have keywords in your domain name? A question asked so many times. Most SEO gurus will answer this rather diplomatically by saying it won't do any harm. In my own experience it's very valuable for niches and sub-niches where competition is limited to a small amount of players. Of course it helps to pick more lucrative niches that are not exploited by freeloaders such as fetish sites that enjoy popularity among high income customers who are willing and able to spend money on adult sites. Creating micro niche sites with exact domain matches is easy and very little work is needed.

How about this anal sex font?

You may have noticed less traffic from Google's image search over the past weeks. Their image recognition servers received software updates enabling them to filter explicit images and even nakedness. Try to search anal sex for example. It shows almost no explicit photos of sex acts. Instead it presents varieties of funny photos with anal sex typed across them. This delivers a low blow for adult webmasters, producers and curious surfers. Obviously, the Palo Alto based search giant wants to clean it's servers off of smutty content and shrink the internet to dimensions suitable for it's advertising platform Adsense. If they can't sell ads, they don't want to please public demand.

Publications of any kind associated to sexual activities are unwanted and illegal in Brazil according to one of it's ministries' interpretations of a controversial law limiting freedom of speech online.

Brazil has been known as one of the most liberal countries in the World. Prostitution is a legal business with brothels in every city, street hookers parading tourists districts and porn DVDs with sex toys sold in stores. Recently, thousands of website owners like Women of the World who had the word "Brazil" mentioned on adult sites received letters from the Brazilian government asking them to shut down as they would consider this an illegal activity. WTF? Read the full letter:

Washington state based credit card billing company Safshop LLC announced termination of their credit card billing facility for December 31st, 2012. Safshop.net used to collect payments for some of the largest adult niche sponsors like TSM Single Travel, World Sex Archives and Interdollars. However, lack of trasactions and increased reporting requirements made them close doors. However, it was considered one of the smaller players with less bureaucracy and quick payouts without holdbacks.

Reciprocal link exchanges have been very popular. Anchor text variations helped search engine popularity and high toplist positions from popular sites increased traffic. There are various toplist and link exchange scripts available like LinkEX. Some hosted solutions like Thunderball and Linkspun promise third-party policed and honest link exchanges. All those solutions have one huge exploit: backlinks to your site can be cloaked, easily.
How does this fraud work? A link partner clicks on your linkEx partnerships to setup a new exchange. After he is done, your link is installed on a cloaked version of his page that will be displayed to your script when it checks for backlink every day. Normal visitors and Google bots will see a different version without your link.

It was my big hope to conclude my Penguin recovery project last month, but apparently it is taking me at least one more month since I was distracted from writing my webmaster blog. Recently, I have been monitoring my search stats a bit more to come up with new articles. Most visitors seem to be interested in creating tube sites with half of people looking for way to cheat while others are questioning legalities like 2257 requirements. Another growing search trend is fraud and scams of adult affiliate programs. Many smaller and larger sponsors fail to meet their payment obligations. This makes me concerned and my ideas for a sponsor blacklist slips back on the table. Webmastering has changed a lot over 15 years I must admit. My next post will be in August as I am taking a summer vacation on Maledives this year.

stats of an adult site

This small niche directory was hit by Penguin update. Traffic fell on April 23rd, 2012 and remained depressed.

Google's new algorithm update Penguin has hit a lot of adult webmasters. Some of their pages were hit badly, while others saw no effect at all. Last days I was analyzing weblogs of my own sites and found one site that was hit by Penguin. That's from a list of 50 sites on my first server that I looked at. That's not bad at all. Traffic dropped from 1300 to 750 hits a day. It's a very stable site that mostly relies on search engine traffic. It is online since 2003 and I don't spend more than 3 hours a year of work on this site (yes, you read this right. It is a site concept that is easy to maintain).

Google is tweaking it's search algorithm once again. Last year's Panda update lifted quality sites over content farms using duplicate articles and spun text, a seedy method used in mainstream IM. Adult webmasters were hardly affected by it. Today's Penguin update is hitting porn industry hard. It punishes affiliate sites, TGPs and sblogs while tubes rank higher.

TGP Alexa Ranks

Worldsex.com and niche TGP japan-whores.com have taken beatings on Alexa and lost significant traffic ranks

Thumb nail gallery posts (TGP) were the first site model that exploited free content distribution for the sake of making money with porn at any price. People would select 12 or 15 images, crop thumbs and make a free gallery with banners. Then they were posted to gallery posts in exchange for reciprocal linking or paid submission password. The concept was much easier than free sites or AVS that were too difficult to build and probably the first and most successful adult promotion model of early days.

2257 legal age verificationIt's logical to think adult webmasters need to maintain records of their models' age to make sure they just deploy images and movies of legal adults on their sites. Most European countries maintain strict laws regarding underage content. Publishers are fully responsible for all content on their site - no matter if producers, secondary publishers or normal bloggers. If investigated they will need to prove legal age of models beyond any doubt - even when just holinked. There have been various legal cases in UK and Germany where webmasters were ordered to pay high fines as they had "juvenile models" on their site and were unable to prove age. I believe they just copy/pasted content from others. While this European systems works well, there is no record keeping requirement that mandates a formal arrangement of data. In the USA things are more complicated. Of course it is illegal to post non-legal content and doing so will be prosecuted.

A daily updating blog with fresh galleries and showcasing new graphic content is cool, but as long as each blog post is accompanied by affiliate links, it will most likely be considered as spam and traffic received will be of poor quality. It's commonly known that Google and Bing frown upon excessive affiliate links and banners. Imho it's much better practice to keep growing a blog with lesser frequency and larger, quality articles. Mix related outbound links and sponsor banners. Why not post a link to a Wikipedia page about a famous pornstar or a news article about female sextourism in Bali on BBC? It will do good! Over the past 5 years I have grown around 100 adult blogs and found sites with real genuine content that are updated once a month, are producing outstanding results compared to daily updated picture-sblogs.

FBI notice on Megaupload.com
Funny looking homepage of one of the largest file sharing sites: domain seized by the FBI

I was reading about it a couple of days ago: Megaupload.com founder Kim Dotcom alias Kim Schmitz was arrested in New Zealand together with his partners. Accounts, estates and valuables of 150 Million Dollars were seized and bail denied. Kim and his partners face long years of prison if allegations by the FBI were to be supported by a court. His site Megaupload.com has been among the top 50 internet sites for the past years allowing users to share files that included copyrighted material like songs, movies and TV shows. Now, it hosts one image, only: Owned by the FBI! It also hosted large archives of porn paysite contents that were downloadable for free or for a premium fee.

black hat seo

Black Hat SEO has become part in many webmasters' SEO strategies. Unlike stated on blogs and boards of self-acclaimed SEO gurus there is no clear-cut borderline between white hat and black hat SEO anymore. Adding a little bit of the other side is not so bad after all according to theories about Markov Chain, an important metric in statistical mathematics. Markov chain more or less translates to a certain amount of links in a chain of connections will be sick or obsolete and search engines accept this rule of nature. Actually, it's suspected to be part of Google's algorithm. A threshold for 'sick' connections is somewhere close to 20% and there is a possibility for a generous margin added on top.
This means, if you are a super clean white hat and your SEO strategy is 98% straight you are most likely going to be falling behind. Your profile might look artificially built according to assumptions of unnatural growth. Don't misunderstand me, I am not saying you should turn to black hat tactics. Most likely they are going to hurt you if done in a spammy way, but they could help building natural linking profiles and control branding.

shaved affiliate

Many programs advertise to be faithful to their affiliates and not skim sales or percentages by utilizing transparent scripts for advanced tracking like NATS, etc. In many cases they do a pretty good job making sure your sales are properly credited, but there are black sheep around who try to save on expenses or steal a buck here and there. I am trying to make a small list of potential dangers to look out for. I am not saying programs are evil in general, but a certain percentage is secretly using lube to get into your backdoor. Here's a small list of potential affiliate shaving methods.

paycounter

To be honest, I have been fairly lucky with my adult webmaster experience during the first couple of years. There have been failures of billing companies like iBill, Probilling and AC Pay aka EGS Pay, but they just cost me 2 weeks of revenue for each company's sponsor. Since they were little guys it was limited to a small 3 digit loss. Most of those billing companies had shaving options built in for their programs. I am certain, I lost more from shady affiliate programs like Bargirl Cash compared to actual bankruptcy of said billing companies. They were failed enterprises and I moved on. Shit happens and it's better to forget. It's impossible to get crazy about it and try to put up a legal fight. You can't win.
