Keeping Webmasters Honest

Keeping Webmasters Honest
Affiliate revenue sharing models have the potential to generate mass amounts of income for both the providers of the end service or product and the affiliates that send the traffic their way.

Keeping It Real

Keeping It Real
The adult industry is one of the best working environments in the world.

The Party's Over

The Party's Over
I've written before about "the end of the gold rush," but today, it seems that we've gone beyond all that, and if asked for a sound bite, the quote would be "the party's over – all that remains to be seen is who will stay to help clean up, and who will be stuck with the bill."

"Ya Gotta Wanna"
I was chatting with my neighbor the other day when he revealed the fact that he once knew another couple who had an adult Web site, and thought having one of his own would be a cool and profitable hobby.
