|Setup an adult website without needing any extensive
programming or scripting knowledge and with the lowest possible investment(Total
cost incurred while setting up my website was 7$/month).
HOSTING : First of all, get yourself an adult webhost. Below
is a filtered list of the best possible adult web hosts - both free and paid.
This list contains only adult hosts which I have tried myself and found to be
satisfactory. Obviously, there are a lot of other adult hosting companies who
may be better, and you will find a lot of adult webmaster resources listing
- Paid hosting starting at 7$/month - 150MB space, 4 GB bandwidth. Includes
cgi,perl, php4, mysql, reseller plan, flash support, ecommerce ready, 200 pop/smtp
emails, password protected directories and a lot more. See
- Free hosting - unlimited space, unlimited bandwidth. No popups, free Russian
Submitter and Rove TGP Submitter accounts, free .com domain, full FTP management
and a lot more.
For max efficiency and economy, I would suggest that you register
with both and divide your files among them - the protected folders such as membership
scripts and pay to view services in protgp and the public or open folders in
CONTENT: The next step depends on whether you plan to buy
or shoot adult content or whether you want it all for free. If you plan to put
up excusive adult content, get it all ready first. Else, for free adult content
- join up with the following sponsors: Again there are a lot, and I mean a lot,
of adult sponsors offering free content in exchange for you promoting them to
your users with banners, popups, text links and any other way that you can send
them visitors. Listed below are the adult sponsors that I am using myself, who
offer downloadable picture files, galleries and movie files in zip format. Also,
some hosted galleries ( meaning all you have to do is put up a text or image
link to a gallery hosted by the sponsor. So, you don't need any space or bandwidth.
The downside is that it doesn't add to the adult content on your site ).
- The best - Videos, image zip files, hosted galleries for all niches. Highly
recomend this adult pay per signup sponsor for all webmasters.
- Galleries, free content, and more. Lots of sites for you to promote.

SOFTWARE & SCRIPTS: OK - So, you got your website hosted,
you got your harddrive full of free content. Now, the next step would be to
collect the tools, i.e. - the software and scripts necessary to put up all this
in a clean and appealing format.
Dreamweaver - HTML Editor
FTP Client -- Upload files to your webhost ( free trial download )
Gallery Maker - Make instant galleries from picture files ( free trial download
Multimedia editing ( free trial download )
Joiner - Join broken mpeg files to make one big movie ( free trial download

8. Webposition Gold - How to increase traffic to your Web site
without spending advertising dollars.
List of scripts:
Membership Script from cgi-central.net
script archive - (Free Downloads)
3. Menu script - This is one helluva scam - I tried menu building
software from at least 4 different companies, and found that either they got
popups when you see the menu on the net or there's some fuckwit blocking mechanism.
So, finally, i decided to code it, and you can see the result up top.Click
here to see the source code. Just copy paste and change the URL's and names
to get your own menu.
DESIGN: So you got everything. Now it's time for some hard
work and to show your designer genius. Design seperate pages for everything:
To download free adult templates zips - visit the design section
but remember that a lot of people are doing the same.
1. Disclamer & Home page - Please go through a lot of disclaimers
and study the laws to see what fits your site best.
2. Thumbnail Gallery Page - subcategorize as per niche
3. Video and movies - subcategorize as per niche
4. Live Cams
7. Webmasters ( In case you decide to start an affiliate program )
Two points to consider when you're designing your pages:
1. Minimize banners - A couple up top, and maybe one or two small ones inside the pages. Leave space for the banners.
2. Include as many text links as possible( you can replace them with exchange
links later - we'll get to that).
REVENUE: So, hopefully, by now you got a good looking website
and you're feeling proud of yourself. Now is the time to start worrying about
how you're going to make money after all this hardwork. Well, cheer up, and
read on. Considered that it's difficult to get people to pay money for watching
porn on the web nowadays, but there's still an enormous amount of money being
made by a lot of people. Here's how they do it: Signup for every program in
this list and try to include as many as possible in your site - this is where
the money is going to come from.
Type of programs:
Pay per signup - These sponsors pay for every user from
your site who lands up at their site and sign's up for their membership. You
already signed up for ten of them above in content. Just use their content to
get signups credited to you. Send as many people as possible to their sites.
Pay per Impression: Make money off every user who visits
your site - These sponsors give you a few lines of code to incude in your site.
Any visitor who comes in will get a popup, either when he comes in or when he
leaves your site - you decide. Warning: If you incude any sponsor who opens
multiple or chain popups, the user is going to be drowned in popups or end up,
as we say - in "popup hell".
Here's a live example:
We were unfortunate to receive your
application to Suze Randall's
Pics4Clicks and visit your site to land in POP UP HELL.
No thanks, best of luck.
Suze Randall's Pics4Clicks
I suggest a sponsor who gives you a single popup on entry or
exit, such as FPCTraffic
High paying chain popups are: Yourxxxsponsor
per click - Now, you got to be very careful here, or you could end up
in deep shit. Read all Terms & conditions carefully before you signup and
decide if you want your user to end up in some place where he doesn't want to
go. Blind clicks( where the user clicks on something like - Click here for free
Teen Movies - and ends up at your adult sponsors webpage ) are easy to make
the user click, but may result in a loss of regular visitors. I suggest one
single popup per page along with a lot of signup sponsors, text links for per
click and a few images for pay per click sponsors.
Sponsors include Freepassbucks,
and Adameve. These adult sponsors offer about
1$/confirmed email. Big money and easy to promote. Visit Formmail
to setup your own ezine.
DO NOT SPAM!
See the directory resource listing at top of page or do a search
for listing of any particular topic.
MEMBERSHIP & CREDIT CARD SETUP:

One word of advice, do not setup a paid site unless you feel
that you have something substantial to offer your customers.
ADULT TRAFFIC: Ok, so we're all set to go. Only problem is
- you got no visitors and nobody knows about your site. Fear not, help is at
hand. Just follow these tips and you should be on your way on the high seas
of adult porn.
1. Search Engine Optimization - involves a
lot of hard work, but probably the only way to go.( visit www.submitcorner.com)
2.Buy traffic -
be careful - not only are you spending money instead of earning
it, results are far from assured.
3. Trade traffic - For more details
traffic trade listings.
4. Start an affiliate program, where you're the sponsor. Find
a good adult
affiliate network. I would advise against installing your own affiliate
script in the beginning, considering the large possiblity of fraud and cheaters
stealing your hard earned money.
5. Advertise your site on search
engines and other adult sites. ( again, you're spending money but this one
is slightly more likely to bring in some revenue).
Advertisers List: Google Adword.
6. TGP Posting: Post your galleries on Thumbnail Gallery Posts
7. Link Lists: Submit your site to all the reputed
link lists here. They'll drive quality adult traffic to your website. Warning:
Submitting your site to FFA sites can lead to search engine ranking falling
TIPS & TRICKS:
Search Engine Tips - Before you submit to the search engines,
get text links exchanged with as many adult sites as possible. Google will search
for links to your site on the internet before listing you. Warning: Link only
to pages with a Page
Rank™ higher or at least equal to your link. Suggest that even if
you use auto submitters, check every site to see if your link is up.
404 page exits - Use 404 pages ( these are custom pages shown
when the user tries to find a page not there in your site) to send visitors
to adult sponsors.
Use free gifts like dvd/s and adult toys to attract signups.
Keep your content fresh - rotate pics on all index pages at
least every fortnight. See random
html script to randomly load a page.
Keep your pages clean and simple. Sites which look very attractive
have relatively lower signup stats.
Use a lot of text and text links throughout every page. Search
engines love text.
Keep in mind that this is just one of the ways to
get started in the adult industry. The rest depends on your hardwork, talent
and let's hope that ladyluck smiles on you.
