Build A Profitable Gay Site

Build A Profitable Gay Site
At industry events I am often approached — as are a lot of my colleagues in the gay adult online industry — for advice on how to enter the gay market. The questions come from very savvy and successful webmasters in the straight market who develop illogical mental blocks when confronted with same... More »

Traffic Through Acquisition

Traffic Through Acquisition
I spend a portion of my advertising budget every month on the acquisition of traffic generating properties. I find that it is often more profitable to purchase websites, domains and other properties that can generate traffic for me month in and month out. Dividing your budget and utilizing these tec...

Another Look At .XXX

Another Look At .XXX
The much-debated .XXX top-level domain has found patronage within the adult-industry camp, as well as on Capitol Hill. Supporters rally behind the idea that an adult-specific extension would provide access only to those who wished to visit. Detractors counter that this type of treatment would cr... More »

A Change In Plans

A Change In Plans
With market forces and business realities changing almost daily for operators in the online adult industry, having a flexible business plan that you revisit from time to time is vital to your success. While I'm not going to get into the mechanics of writing a formal (or even informal) business pl... More »

Protecting Your Content

Protecting Your Content
I believe that if someone pulls an image off of your server, plants it on his, and then displays it, that he is breaking the law. But if a user posts the URL to your image in a chat room, USENET Group or BBS of some sort, it is the webmaster of the content that is at fault. You are in control of... More »

The Inside Track

The Inside Track
There's a virtual treasure trove of money-making marketing information right at your fingertips if you only know where to look, and what to do with the information once you find it.

Traffic Brokers And 2257

Traffic Brokers And 2257
Much has been said and written lately regarding the proposed new 2257 regulations, and while there is a treasure trove of information available at this point, much of what has been written focuses on the impact of the new requirements on "primary producers," a term which, in a nutshell, means the ...

XML For Christmas

XML For Christmas
With Halloween costumes being put away and Thanksgiving decorations going up, there is a clear reminder that Christmas is approaching, and fast. You start to think of all the presents you need to buy and the additional expenses that will be wiping your wallet clean. This is right when adult webmaste... More »

A New Season Of Hope

A New Season Of Hope
It's official: George Bush will remain in office as President of the United States of America for four more years. While the reactions of some in the adult industry are bordering on hysteria over imaginary woes to come, I want to assure you all that "the sky is not falling..." Take a look around ... More »

Talking To Users

Talking To Users
I can't tell you how valuable it is to have a site news section. We think ours is so important that it occupies most of our main page. We cover headlines related to the site, system news and upgrades, tech tips, jokes and a section called "Mike's Corner" (I'm Mike). Surprisingly the most read i... More »

OPINIONS & VIEWS

The Skinny on the New DMCA Requirement

The requirements under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) have changed, but the sky is not falling. We have, even as a law firm, been hit with an unbelievable amount of spam sent out by law firms... More »

So, What’s the Real ‘Public Health Crisis’?
