    Yes; it is completely true. There is no more demand. All of the major porn producers have gone bankrupt. The actors and actresses are all out of work.

    It is because of video games; everyone plays video games now, like Pokemon Go. There is no longer any reason why people should pursue sex, either in porn or in person.

      Do you think this is why the more popular porn websites are now free? (Because nobody is willing to pay for access anymore?)

      Then again, I expect you could easily make money from advertisement, but I don't really know any stats in the 18+ niche.

          Hopefully you could get the sarcasm from the guy in the thread saying their was no money in porn because of pokemon go. lol!

          One of the best networks to get adult traffic from is TrafficJunky. One of my former clients had the top porn site in Australia.

    I imagine that many of those who answered you made fun of you. But I'll answer seriously.

    Of course pornography is always popular:

    1) In July 2013, Around 8% of clicks were on legal pornography sites, according to figures released by Similar Web.
    https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...net-traffic-uk

    2) From July 2009 to July 2010, about 13% of Web searches were for erotic content, according to neuroscientist Ogi Ogas.
    http://www.forbes.com/sites/julieruv.../#357efa5d61f7

    But the revenue that web site owners derive from their activities decreased dramatically since 2005. Why? For three reasons...

    1) Competition from free sites: Few people are willing to enroll in pay porn websites when they can see whatever they want for free. (For the same reason, affiliate revenues are low)

    2) However free porn websites owners can make money with advertising. Unfortunately for 10-year advertising revenues have fallen dramatically because many people have adblockers nowadays (near 50%) and companies pay less for advertising since the 2008 financial crisis.

    3) There is a lot of competition in this market and the big players collect most of the revenue. For newcomers probability of success is very low.

    The majority of porn websites earn 5 to 10 times less money in 2016 than in 2006. Small erotic websites are struggling to earn over a few thousand dollars per year.

    However, there is a sector in the adult industry that still works well: the erotic webcams.

    So is porn video site profitable nowadays? Not really. Except erotic webcams. How to get traffic? SEO is the best option.

    Hope this answers your question!

    P.S. There are specific forums for webmasters interested in this field. Type into Google "adult webmaster forum" and you'll find them.

    You will have faster success and more profitable success if you specialize in a niche in which you have some interest and authority already.

    Inventory your own skills, education, passions, hobbies, previous training, talents, interests, and those things that other people who know you would say you do very well.

    Choose a niche that you know something about. It will give you an advantage over others, you'll already be able to speak about the niche with some authority, and you may already be seen by your prospects as an expert in the niche. You'll be able to write about the niche and help others in the niche that want to learn what you already know.

    Why not start your IM career by "hitting the ground running?"

    The very best to you,

    Porn sites are not profitable now a days, You have to spend a lot of money to build a good site and then you can't earn enough. Because already there are many strong sites are available on google. So this is better to leave this idea and think about something new, That really helps others and a good legal business.

    Unless you're running your own niche fetish-targeted affiliate network, the affiliate game for porn vids (HD and otherwise) is dead.

    If you don't believe me, do a search for all the bellyaching regarding Manwin's vertical integration of the online porn industry.

    It's not pretty.

    If you're going to do anything adult related, try sexcams.

    If I were you I would get your mind into thinking in terms of getting into a niche in which you can offer constructive helpful advice.

    Forget about "making" money, you have to "earn" it, and until you have some traction, presence, and trust, in a viable niche (there are plenty that are craving for information), you'll probably not earn a cent.

    There is some sound advice throughout this thread

    We can't really answer that question without seeing your goods first.

    Porn in the early days of the Internet was like picking gold off of the street. That industry pioneered much of the Internet Marketing that is taken for granted today. If you knew SEO tricks back then (cloaking, hidden text, keyword mispellings, satellite sites linking back to your main domain, link shares, keyword densities as high as 6%, long tail keywords...it used to be so easy to rank. SEO was the closely guarded secret at the time. Google wasn't such a monopoly back then - there was also Yahoo, Altavista, Excite, Northern Lights, Google, Overture, Open Directory Project, MSN Search and I'm sure that I'm forgetting a couple.

    If I could just go back then and tell my young self what I know now, I'd be a very rich individual.
