This adult webmaster blog is based on my experiences selling porn online. All opinions are my own. Do not freak.

The Hun Tgp review time

Just thought I’d note I received a TGP gallery submission acceptance email today (Dec 31st) on a TGP gallery I submitted on Aug 17th. So it looks like the long queue means a review time of about 3 1/2 months. Wow.

Maybe my Christmas gallery will be approved in time for St. Patrick’s day.

How to create a free adult blog at Sensual Writer

This basic post is aimed at adult webmasters who want to start with a free adult blog network and/or use free hosted blogs to increase incoming links into their main network. There are several great free adult blog hosts and I’ll be using Sensual Writer for this example, but Sexus Blog has the exact same owner and back end.

If this is your first time using Sensual Writer, click on ‘Get a Free Blog’ on the main page to create an account. Type in a subdomain and blog title to see if it’s available to use. Your first blog will always be your default blog that loads when you log into Sensual Writer. I used for this post.

After logging in you will see the default admin screen like the above screenshot. Use the second menu from the top to set up your free adult blog.

Click on ‘Plugins’ and Activate the All in one SEO Pack.

Click on ‘Options’ and ‘General’ and set the tagline for your adult blog, rich in keywords you want to target. Click on ‘Discussion’ and uncheck ‘Allow people to post comments’. Click ‘Permalinks’ and set custom structure to ‘/%postname%/’. Now click on ‘All in One SEO’ and set any fields you don’t want the addon to handle.

Click on ‘Users’ and set a Nickname that you want to appear on your blog posts (instead of your account user name). Make sure to set ‘Display name publicly as’ so it shows up. This only needs to be done once for all your free adult blogs.

Click on ‘Presentation’ and choose a theme to use for your adult blog. Next click on ‘Widgets’ to set up your sidebars. You’ll use mostly Text Widgets, so select 5 or more of them at the bottom. Click and drag these to your sidebar(s) and fill them with any ad text you like from related sponsors. You won’t be able to upload sponsor banners, so you’ll have to use ‘hotlink’ ads from your sponsor (like an iframe). Webcam and dating sponsors most commonly use hotlink ads. Now use one text widget to link back to some of your other adult sites, and another text widget to link to adult blog directories where you will submit this new adult blog for traffic and link backs.

Click on ‘Manage’ then ‘Pages’ to edit or delete the default About page.

Click on ‘Write’ to start your blog postings. The editor should be intuitive so just play around and you should get the hang of it easily. Write in whatever style you feel most comfortable with. 1st person, 3rd person, narrative, whatever. Sprinkle the text with your target keywords, but don’t spam it. Longer post descriptions are usually considered better because of the amount of unique text, but don’t fret if you can’t force yourself to write that much. It’s more important to get something out quickly than be a word sleuth. Aim for 5-10 published posts to start each adult blog. You can always add more later if you want to.

Done! Now submit this blog to the adult blog directories on your list. Your first free hosted adult blog might take a few hours to complete, but after some practice you should be able to get one finished in about an hour.

Adult sponsors and cookie tracking

Lots of adult affiliate programs use cookies to track your affiliate code in addition to or instead of using them in the urls. This way if a surfer comes back to the sponsor site at a later date to make a purchase and his cookie still has your affiliate code, you will get credit for the sale.

However, the expiration date of these cookies is set by each adult affiliate program, and many set it short so that when these ‘late buyers’ come back to purchase, there is no cookie with your affiliate code, and they get to keep the entire amount of the sale without sharing any with you, even though you originally sent the buyer in the first place.

The question is, what cookie expiration is acceptable to you? Many affiliates feel cookies should be ‘for life’, but many adult affiliate programs don’t agree, or just accept the default cookie expiration length set by their 3rd party billing software (such as CCbill). However, adult affiliates seem to agree that anything less than 7 days is unfair.

The best but slowest way to check cookie expiration times is to clear your cookie cache, visit your adult affiliate link to get a fresh cookie, and then view the cookie details for the expire time.

For Firefox, you can select Tools->Options->Privacy->’remove individual cookies’ to search.
For Internet Explorer, you can select Tools->Internet Options->Browsing history, Settings->View Files to search.
For Chrome, you can select Options->Under the Hood->Content settings->Cookies->Show cookies to search.

Luckily, someone has already done a lot of this grunt work for us. Sign Bucks Daily has a page of low cookie time CCbill programs. See if any of your adult sponsors are on it.

I also found this CCbill cookie checker tool.

The Chameleon submitter tool for submitting TGP galleries

Brad sent in an email asking if Chameleon Submitter was worth it for submitting TGP galleries. I’ve used Chameleon Submitter for years, and here’s my thoughts.

I’m unsure without paid partner accounts from the bigger TGPs that this tool is ‘worth it’. It might pay for itself with a little extra using free TGP submissions but no windfalls. It’s not the tool though, it’s the TGPs. Almost 90% of my TGP traffic and sales come from my paid partner accounts. The TGPs with big traffic that are free to submit to I could count on one hand. I use the Chameleon Submitter because it speeds up creating mirror pages, thumbnails and submission times, and the additional 200+ TGPs it allows me to submit to for free is just extra. In short, if you’re not going to buy premium partner accounts I would look elsewhere.

Custom made adult blog directory

omg sex blogsSo I’ve been taking some time off expanding my site network to write the script for OMG Sex Blogs, an enhanced porn directory for adult blogs. I’ve been surfing a lot of adult blog directories and I think a lot of them are just awful. I wanted to make one I wanted to be a part of, that wants to get the surfer to the adult blogs he wants to see, easy to navigate, and has a lot to offer for sites that participate.

Instead of your adult blog falling lower and lower in the category pages like some other porn directories, there are various locations to get multiple linkbacks. There are backlinks on the new blogs pages, category pages, top 20 sidebar for those that send traffic (site wide), and spotlight sidebar for random blog selections (different on every page), as well as sections for your blog’s last entry via RSS for deeplinking. This way participating adult blogs should always get good linkbacks.

It’s brand new so most of the adult blogs are mine, but I’m hoping to get more submissions and some link love from Google soon.
