How to Choose the Perfect Porn Niche

Niche is often associated with a single and powerful keyword that can ramp up your earnings. In layman terms, a niche is a segment of a big market. Porn industry is huge. It has a potential of more than 100 billion USD. For all intents and purposes, this gigantic market can be divided into various segments such as the following:

  • Ass
  • Amateur
  • Step Family
  • Gay
  • Lesbian
  • Black
  • Anal
  • BDSM
  • Blow job
  • Transgender
  • MILF
  • Feet

It’s pretty much evident that the aforementioned list is not comprehensive. There are more than 200 adult niches.

Let me hit on this interesting observation – Every year, new niches keep surfacing. In other words, new niches evolve. To acquaint yourself with the different types of niches, hop on to xVideos and visit the tags section.

Let’s say – you are a straight web master. You decided to go ahead with Gay niche. Let me ask you a few questions:

  • Are you comfortable with uncut dicks?
  • Are you comfortable with huge black monsters?

Of course, you aren’t getting yourself featured in gay porn videos. Then, do these even questions matter?

Before setting up a porn site, it’s important to identify the factors that motivate audiences to flock to your adult tube site. Audiences may visit your site to watch guys sucking their partners’ big uncut cocks. But if your tube site contains videos of average sized cut dicks, audiences may not be receptive.

When you upload a video to your adult tube site, make a point to watch it yourself. There’s a lot of generic porn which is of hardly any significance to niche lovers. There’s no point in uploading irrelevant content to your adult tube site.  Not many straight web masters are comfortable watching gay porn videos. As a matter of fact, I’ve seen many web masters abandoning their niche adult tube sites owing to discomfort and embarrassment. 

The bottomline is simple – Learn your niche, understand its intricacies and research a lot. Keep reading posts on adult forums, magazines and blogs. Take suggestions from adult tech consultants and experienced web masters.

Here’s a caveat – Do not just assume anything and take things for granted.

Consider this scenario – An influencer / consultant ‘A’ says that a particular niche ‘X’ has immense potential. ‘A’ may be right. ‘A’ may be wrong. The onus is on you to verify if the niche ‘X’ has great potential. This brings me to the nest question – How do you verify?

You can bank on extra-ordinary Google Chrome extensions such as Keywords Everywhere. This extension doesn’t work to its best capacity in incognito mode. You can use it in normal mode. Now, go to google.com and type the name of niches.

You will get instant insights on three important metrics:

  • Volume
  • CPC
  • Competition

Here’s a sample snapshot

start a porn site

It’s evident that there are more than 6,000,000 searches per month on Google for Gay Porn.

Are these numbers genuine? Of course, they are!

Keywords Everywhere uses Google’s Keyword Planner API. This pretty much substantiates that the numbers are indeed genuine.

To get an insight into competition, use Alexa. Alexa throws crazy insights. The following parameters are very much covered:

  • Visitors by Country (Geography of Audiences)
  • Bounce Rate
  • Daily page views per visitor
  • Daily time of site

Alexa and Google are your best friends!

Now, curious webmasters keep asking me another question – How long do I have to wait for my adult tube site to rank on the first page of Google? There’s no definite answer. It depends to a very large extent on how you do adult SEO, identify different sources of traffic, process streamlining etc. There are no shortcuts.

However, here’s the good news – There are tools such as KWFinder.com that give you an estimate of the time. You can play with it and keep yourself abreast of keyword difficulty index.

We have now completed the first step in the 6-step process of how to make a porn tube site.

Read on to understand the advantages of a porn niche site.

 Advantages of Porn Niche Site

how to start a porn website

Before looking at the advantages of porn niche sites, let’s first understand the benefits of generic or general porn sites.

Link building is effortlessly easy. Only one site has to be maintained and updated. There are too many general porn sites. Do you want your site to be a me-too porn site? Truth be told, me-too porn sites hardly make any money.

Let’s now look at the advantages of porn niche sites.

Advantage #1: SEO – Internal Linking and Link Wheeling

The biggest advantage is SEO. All keywords are centered on a single fetish. Header texts can be optimized for fetish – specific keywords. More importantly, branded backlinks will be rich in fetish – specific keywords.

Internal linking and link wheeling sub-niches will be insanely easy. Let’s say – you have chosen MILF as your niche. Sub-niches such as Big – tits, Fake – tits, Shaved Pussy, etc. can be added and category pages can be updated easily. However, do not over-do. Establish boundaries and don’t explore too many sub-niches. Google is pretty serious about excessive link-wheeling.

Advantage #2: Affiliate Offers

Link sites have the best conversion rates across the industry. In case of generic porn sites, audiences are bombarded with irrelevant banners, pop-ups and pop under scripts. As niche sites attract niche traffic, it’s easy to increase the relevancy of affiliate offers. Un-astonishingly, conversion rates and monetization increase.

Advantage #3: Niche Traffic

There are two types of audiences – Niche conscious and Passive. Passive porn viewers jerk off to any porn video. For them, niche is irrelevant. They don’t dig deep into Google SERPs (Search Engine Ranking Pages). They just visit the websites featured on the first page of Google SERP, watch a couple of porn videos, jerk off and get back to work.

Niche conscious audiences are extremely patient. They delve deep into Google SERPs – sometimes, they visit pages 20, 21, and beyond. If you upload niche specific porn videos to your adult tube site, this category of audiences will be keen on viewing them.

Other Advantages:
  • The success rate of publisher and advertiser networks on niche sites is high. Click-through rates are indisputably better on niche sites.
  • It’s easy to acquire social media traffic if you are running a niche site. Many social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Quora, etc., provide NoFollow backlinks. Tumblr provides both DoFollow and NoFollow backlinks.
  • In case you have decided to scale your porn site, you can target multiple niches. You can use your expertise and experience and focus on multiple projects.  

Here’s the bottom line – If you are keen on starting a porn website, make a list of your favorite niches, map their profit potential, identify the key players and observe the type of content being uploaded to dominant niche websites.

 Follow & Capitalize on the Amateur Porn Trend

how to make a porn tube site

Amateur porn category is breaking the internet.  In 2017, more than 800,000 videos were uploaded to one of the most popular porn tube sites – Pornhub.com. The significance of amateur porn trend is remarkable in countries such as Italy. According to PornHub insights, keywords that accounted for the top trending search of 2017 in Italy are amatoriale italiano and amatoriale napoli.

In Sweden, amateur porn category is 27% more popular than elsewhere in the world. And here’s an interesting fact – We are living in a digital age wherein the selective and sustained attention span of audiences is less than 10 minutes. However, amateur porn is successful in gluing audiences to amateur content for an average duration of 14 minutes and 31 seconds. This is according to PornHub insights.

Remarkable, isn’t it?

No doubt, people love HD porn. Popular adult membership websites such as Naughty America, Brazzers, etc., have been dominating the HD ecosystem for quite some time. There’s a difference between amateur porn and professional porn. Professional porn is scripted. There’s a lot of lighting. Dialogue delivery is unnatural. More importantly, orgasms are fake.

Amateur porn is mostly sloppy. It may not be in ultra HD (4K) or normal HD (720p). A vast majority of times, footage is raw. However, dialogue delivery is genuine. Sex is legitimately natural. While amateur porn performers may fake orgasms, the perception is otherwise. There’s bonding between the actors. Bonding between the actors in professional porn videos is absent.

Let’s now look at the most viewed categories from 2009 to 2017.

CategoryYear
Amateur2009
Amateur2010
Teen2011
Milf2012
Milf2013
Milf2014
Lesbian2015
Lesbian2016
Lesbian2017

                                                                                     Source: PornHub Insights

It’s pretty much evident from the above table that Amateur porn was the most dominant category in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. And yes, it’s in the top 3 dominant categories in 2017. According to industry experts and influencers, trends are cyclical by nature. Before it’s too late, capitalize on this amateur porn trend!

I don’t want to flood this section with too many pointless offers. That’s it for this section.

Let’s now look at the next section – how to start a porn website.

 How to Start a Porn Site

To begin with, you require a domain name. A domain name is nothing but a virtual address on the internet. Your domain name should be niche-oriented.

Where can you buy domain names? Hop on to M 3 Server

Quite a few adult webmasters may prefer Bluehost. Bluehost sucks a big time. More importantly, it doesn’t tolerate pornography, nudity, escort services and adult sex toys. You are likely to get banned.

All those adult webmasters who suggest you to purchase Bluehost are possibly doing it for two reasons:

  • Bluehost has very good affiliate schemes. Webmasters just want to leverage them
  • They are too ignorant to accept the truth that BlueHost is good-for-nothing when it comes to porn sites.

Of course, there are alternatives such as Hostgator. Do you think it’s a good idea to go with Hostgator?

Here’s why you shouldn’t:

Adult Hosting Solution

When it comes to adult hosting, remember two important keywords – Storage and Bandwidth. And yes, uptime should be at-least 99.9%.  I recommend at-least 2GB RAM and 50GB HDD (Hard Disk Drive)

Apart from great storage, bandwidth and uptime, here are other genuine reasons to go with M3 Server:

  1. Server setup is free.
  2. Control panel is power packed with ample resources. It’s easy to use. More importantly, there isn’t any license fee.
  3. You will be given a single IP address. You are at absolute liberty to load as many domains to your IP address.
  4. Data is secure. They offer a free SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate. After all, it’s not at all ideal to expose customer data to hackers.
  5. Customer service is prompt and action-oriented.

Curious to know about different plans? Visit M3 Server now.

Content Management System (CMS)

Truth be told, CMS landscape is dominated by WordPress. Other alternatives to WordPress are Drupal and Joomla. WordPress is so popular that it’s used by more than 30% of websites. It’s scalable and absolutely user-intuitive. More importantly, it’s affordable.

A vast majority of adult hosting service providers such as M3 Server automatically install WordPress on your adult tube site. If you are interested in installing WordPress manually, you may follow the steps detailed out in popular WordPress guides available on the net.

In more than one way, WordPress is an incredible CMS. However, it has its own restrictions. It should be used in conjunction with a porn site script. There are many porn tube scripts. I recommend xStreamer. The very fact that it has assisted many adult webmasters in building, configuring and monetizing adult websites in an intensely obsessive and competitive market is a testimony to its strength of built-in features.
