and can do the same
here are my results, not sure if normal for this gig but I did not nothing but change nameservers to them:
I added several more domains to my account last night. What is it with hostedtubes nameservers- some work immediately, others don't. I cannot determine where the issue is- at the registry or hostedtubes nameservers. Any input, I read above baseball's comments. thanks.
Yeah would be great if someone who's been using hostedtube for years could comment on these numbers. 5,000 unique visitors a month for your first tube, were you getting that kind of traffic even before you put your domain on Hostedtube? If so then, then the $5.53 you earned over 11 months seem really low. However if you weren't getting any traffic at all before then of course earning $5 is awesome. I have a domain that's earning me around $2 a month from parking (5000-6000 uniques a month), that's around $25 a year.
I have several expired adult names 301 directed to the main site. Lot's of backlinks from older porn sites and domains with them.
This payment It's actually a joke imho. I avoided normal "parking" on all my domains based on all the threads I have read here the past year, so this was one thing I thought was interesting. I did not sign up for any of the adult ad's outside of hostedtube when I did it, simply those are what is paid for the traffic. I have quite few names, and plan to list elsewhere too. Funny thing too, was that I have not checked the website for several months. When I did last night, it was populated with THEIR AD's. This morning, I see returned back to normal with blank space for MY Ad's. Not sure if that was some funny business or they rotate.
Not to change the subject too much but all this pay per click stuff isn't really worth it to me. Even amazon affliates at 4% to me is a joke, unless you go big with them and tons of work and sites and investment in SEO ranking. Competition is fierce too. I got (2) checks for $30. this past year. have probably 100 products listed in various websites. Of that, $10 goes back like 10 years accumulated. Then they at least did not forget to send that in a gift certificate email, which I cannot locate. lol.
Yeah I added 1 domain as well around 20hrs ago and it's still not up, DNS showing as inactive on Hostedtube, could be something on their end.
Regarding my last comment, I'm gonna put my $2/month domain on Hostedtube and see how it fares. I'll post my findings here, basically, I'd have to earn more than $0.07/day for it to be better than regular parking.
It will not be better than average parking, if you will not rank. Actually I have to warn you, it will be much less. Simple as that. Hosted tube is more appropriate for People having dozens of domains and know how to get free traffic from G. Rankings. PBNs still work in 2017.
Yeah, I got only $0.03 for the 6th Dec (full 24 hrs) . With parking, on average I can get anything between $0.05 to $0.20, it's even happened once where I got $1.19 from 7 clicks in 24hrs.
Ok, so say you do all the optimizations and rankings and stuff, what kind of earnings per month can you expect for one tube?
It depends, but anywhere in between 0.10 - XX USD per day per tube.
Wow xx/day per tube is actually pretty awesome, I wonder if anyone here has managed to reach that level.
But it does sound like it'll take a lot of work to get there, not sure I'm up to the task. Anyways, I'm gonna leave this one domain on there for a few weeks and see how it goes, normally I get between 120 - 300 visitors per day through parking, if having a tube means my daily visitors increases, it might still be worth it. My Alexa rank is around 5 million right now, I'll see if it improves.
Ok, took at look at bestcams.xyz and decided to give it a shot also. I put up a domain on AWempire, 2 days worth of traffic results below, better than expected. Note: have 301'ed a bunch of adult domains with backlinks and past traffic. Question is do these stats eliminate bot traffic (626 raw, 457 unique)? Created a a wider network of other domains and tubes @decades80 on the free sites you suggested on hostedtube and put in the one linking to AW cam site. Will see what happens! Thanks! PBN's are a pain to maintain though so thought raw clicks non-masked redirects might be better. Opinions?
@decades80 So here is Nov 1st to today with additional sites. I don't understand how they calculate the payouts. If you see the site with less traffic getting $0.37? versus the top 2 sites that have been there for awhile. I put links as you suggested on hostedtube header out to the AWE live sites, and found no stats yet displaying any click throughs yet on those sites with clicks from my AWE site. Most traffic I believe is only from the heavy backlinked sites I have 301'ed to the AWE sites.
Any particular reason to prefer 301 vs 302 for this purpose? Just wondering...
The 302 is temporary right, so for me I want visitors to learn my nice sleazy domain names. I bought some real winner joke ugky long string domains with backlinks with dashes... rather view them as expendable in a year, and continue buying up old expired.
“A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect which passes between 90-99% of link juice (ranking power) to the redirected page. 301 refers to the HTTP status code for this type of redirect. In most instances, the 301 redirect is the best method for implementing redirects on a website.

In fact I am just experimenting. For a year I was stealthing the redirects and decided that now its better to educate the users to learn the new URL and forget the old ones with all the backlinks. PBN’s are such a pain and with all the WP attacks lately I am lazy so just sending traffic the lazy way. That and I am not interested at hosting my own content.
Google has screwed me enough on organic ranking on other projects, I decided to ban all crawlers on another unrelated site, doubled the content and then throttled the scraping they are allowed.
A few years ago I found that banning crawlers including google from previously expired domains which I got because of backlinks etc. and was redirecting elsewhere - such as adult related redirects - not only did not decrease the human traffic the domains were receiving, but even made it more stable in a long run. Maybe it was an isolated case. My best guess is that legitimate bots who suddenly learned that they are banned and no more allowed to enter simply elected to provide SE visitors with old results to previously developed sites. Not sure how it works in todays enviroment though.
The bot environment from like AWS is a remote server ghetto. In addition to banning the usual majestic, ahrefs, etc I blocked all their IP's out of Amazons cloud. The only bots to ad value are those that index and provide search rank. Majestic and others are spying tools as you know anyway, I dont mind using them for screening names but disallowing them on my sites. The scraping is really frustrating. Google used my curated humsn intelligence to rank their youtube videos. my goal is to reach 100,000 videos this new year. I need dedicated hosting to do it though, trying to figure that out.
It depends where your traffic is coming from. I would guess on a tube with 0.37 USD the traffic is from USA, UK or EU. The India traffic pays the lowest, as well as Turkey, Indonesia or Thailand.
Here are my updated statistics for december 2017, remember that the Traffic is Kind of low because of the Holidays....
Wow, excellent results and performance. Thanks for sharing.
@decades80 this one baffles me. Check out no video views, yet $0.17 payout. ? Even if the traffic is from the US with this low volume as well these are my top performing tubes for today only.
You dont Need any video views to get paid, because the pop unders are appearing when the users land on the Website.
hi to all
is this ok "SCENES AVAIL " 0
thanks for the reply
Probably you put Tags "include all" try to put tags "include any" it works much better according to their support.
Hi, I've been reading a few of your posts on monetizing adult domains and you seem to know your stuff
I'm thinking about giving easyxsites a try, was wondering how they compare to Hostedtube?
Also, I'm trying to start my own self-hosted tube using Wordpress, I've already bought hosting with Hostgator and I'm looking for a reliable script to automate the site. I've been Googling around and Mechbunny has some good reviews but it costs more than I would like to spend in this early stage. I'm also looking at Tubeace which is much more affordable but I'm a complete noob when it comes to scripts, do you have any recommendations? Thanks.
I have tube ace and would recommend you use that over sharing income but so much to mention that could write forever. I can just tell you what domains will succeed or fail in adult world rather than fruitless trials.
