How To Make Money From Blogging
If you’re starting a blog, you’re probably doing it so that you can make some money from it. Luckily there’s easy ways to monetize your adult blog. The main ways (described below) are through affiliate programs and adult ad networks. There are some more colorful ways, such as paid “Advertorial” blog posts. By getting creative, you can also discover other ways to monetize your site.
Adult Affiliate Marketing – This should be your main focus when monetizing your blog. The different adult paysites will pay you a commission or revshare (I advise revshare) for referring new customers to their sites. You can blog about their sites, specific scenes, or simply add banner ads featuring the different sites.
Adult-Friendly Advertisements – Adult friendly ad networks that match you up with advertisers in the same category as your sites. You get paid based on the number of impressions or clicks. Simply paste the code snippet where you want the ad to appear and the network takes care of the rest. Banners, popups and tons of other ad types to choose from.
Blogging Vs Building A Porn Site
You might be wondering what the difference is between running a blog and running a website and what’s the difference. A blog is where you make regular posts. These might be simple photo / video posts with a description, long, opinionated articles about a specific topic, erotic stories, reviews and many other type of posts.
A website, is usually a little more structured and standardized. For example, if you’re running a tube site, it’s expected to have a main page and category pages featuring video thumbnails. It’s also expected to have a video player page that might also feature recommended videos, the studio channel and more from that particular pornstar. Blogs have the luxury of being much more sporadic.
Make Sure To Use An Adult-Friendly Web Host!
This is very important. Not all web hosts allow for adult content. If your web hosting provider doesn’t support adult material, your account will get suspended and your site shut down. Your site won’t be able to go live again until you’ve resolved the issue and migrated to an adult-friendly web host. To make sure this doesn’t happen, go with one that supports adult content the first time.

Topics You Can Blog About
The best thing about running a blog is that you can blog about anything! Your creativity is the only limits. Granted, some blog content might perform better than others, and you somewhat have to cater to your readers, but you’re in control. Blogs can either by highly structured, or they can be a collection of random things. Here’s some blogging ideas to consider.
Reviews Of Different Sites
Reviews perform insanely good. Especially if they are honest and not just written to promote affiliate offers. Since affiliate marketing is the main forum of monetization, and pretty much every porn site has an affiliate program, reviewing the different sites is a great way to drive traffic to that affiliate offer. People are looking at reviews because they’re thinking about joining the site, not because they don’t want to pay and are looking for free content. This makes reviews a great idea for adult blogs.
Photo-Blogging / Video-Blogging
This format is really simple. You add a video, photo or collection of photos to a blog post and then blog about it. All the affiliate programs offer new content all the time and will give you free hosted galleries or embed codes for videos to promote them. Many of the networks are good about sending out emails with the new content as well.
Simply by watching your email, taking a look at the new content and blogging about it, you’ll have an unlimited stream of traffic. Describe the scene, tell readers what you think about it, blog about the performers and talk about whatever else you want to talk about.
Writing Erotic Stories
There is a large audience of people who are not looking for hardcore multimedia, but instead are looking to read. If you are an erotic writer, you can cash in on this! Simply blog about erotic stories. These stories can be of your own sexual exploits, or they can be highly fictitious. If you really want to take this to the next level, it’s possible to accept guest submissions and put your erotic writing on autopilot.
Blogging About Different Porn Stars
People love porn stars. They’re interested in what’s happening in their real lives, when they come out with new scenes, want to read their bios and know more about them in general. Blogging about the individual porn stars is a great way to attract more traffic. Take it a step further; contrast the different pornstars. Maybe write a list of porn star lookalikes. Write a piece on the ‘Top Tweets from _______‘, embed a bunch of tweets from a porn star and write something about them. Get creative about it.
Blogging About Newsworthy Things
There’s a lot of things that happen within the adult industry itself. As I’m writing this, Proposition 60 is a major topic. Follow all the industry news and write about that. Who was the latest porn star to get a Fleshlight designed after her pussy? What’s the newest pay site to launch? All these are newsworthy things that you could be blogging about.
List Style Posts (“5 Best _____”)
List style blog post perform insanely well. These lists can be anything; ‘Top 10 Sites For Big Tit Lovers‘, ‘5 Petite Teen Porn Stars You’ll Love‘, ‘10 New Webcam Models To Check Out‘, ‘Anna Abella’s 10 Best Scenes‘, you get the idea. List style blog posts perform insanely well. The design itself is so basic. Choose an idea, create the list, add supporting text for each list items, a couple links and you’re good.
These aren’t the only things you can be blogging about. You can be blogging about practically anything. If an idea comes to your mind, write it down. As far as blogging is concerned, anything goes. If you can put it into words (or multimedia) and add it to a blog post, it’s possible. The sky is the limits. And with how many new scenes are produced daily, you should never run out of content ideas.
