Adult/illegal topics content mill

Postby SEO Speedwagon » Wed Feb 23, 2011 12:24 pm

I'm wondering if there are any content mills devoted to sex, drugs, alcohol, and/or other topics that would be taboo to mainstream mills. I know advertising bucks could roll in, and the page views/search relevancy for topics such as "How Do I Clean My Bong?" and "Definition of Hot Carl" would be through the roof. Do sites like this exist? If not, why not? And also if not, how about we start one?

There's forums, and urban dictionary is the only thing I can think of. And the only thing that comes up when you google hot carl.

Personally I think it's a good idea. I could write that shit.

Someone who knows more about SEO might have a better opinion.

I like the sound of that big style. Some of the old pre-DMS eHow stuff was actually pretty close, I'm thinking of those pieces on "how to finger a girl" and soixante-neuf your partner, etc, etc.

Everyone says that Break Studios has a lot of "adult" content. Not sure how adult it really is, though -- everything I stumbled across was mild (and corny and poorly written). So, I'm not sure if one exists, but I'd love to write for one.

I'd write for one, but I wonder how easy it would be to create a website for that kind of content and not end up buried among hundreds of porn links in Google results?

I love the idea of it--and if it was written in an intelligent and witty fashion I bet a site like that could earn a good following. My only concern (along the lines of what Natch said) is if it would be tough to rank in Google. But, good keyword research could solve that problem, I suppose. At any rate--I kinda like the idea. I think it's worthy of a little investigation and I bet those titles would be all kinds of fun to write. :D

The big problem you are going to come across is advertising. Obviously, you could not use Adsense and would have to go with adult ad networks and affiliates. Unfortunately, there used to be a lot of money in online porn. It's not there anymore. As everyone knows, if you pay for porn online, you're doing it wrong. It's all over the place for free.

You just aren't going to get as much money from ads/affiliates as you would from legitimate sources. You have to have mega-traffic. While adult material does get lots of traffic, the rule of thumb is that 10,000 hits on an adult site is the equivalent of 1,000 on a non-adult site.

Writing for an adult content mill would be fun, but the profitability might not be there.

I'm not sure keyword research would solve it. You'd be sharing the major keywords with porn sites. Not that porn's bad (A little hardcore now and then is relished by the wisest men, etc), but you'd get no hits if you're just one of thousands of sites with the same keywords.

Yeah, advertising could be an issue, too. I know Adsense won't touch adult sites. Adbrite is less fussy but it's shit and pays fuck all compared to Google, in my experience. I'm not sure how you'd monetize it unless you did it through commissions to hardcore porn sites but even those must be suffering with so much hc porn now available freely.

Isn't there some middle ground between hardcore porn advertising and Adsense? Think about online sex toy stores or sex columns like Savage Love -- just off the top of my head. Seems like there are a lot of racy but non-porn sites that would profit off of adspace on a how-to sex site. A lot of people want to know about sexual topics and not risk opening up a page full of porn. Google does put out clear standards for what is porn and what isn't, at least with its search evaluators, so it seems like it would be easy to navigate with strict guidelines.

And what about drugs? Would a stoner content mill, for example, be untouchable by Adsense because of promoting illegal content? What if it was hosted in a state with legal medical marijuana and had some legal disclaimers like "for medical use only"; or, in non-MM states, pulled the old head shop "for tobacco use only" trick?

There's gotta be loopholes big enough for cash streams to flow through somewhere.
