Using Video Posting Sites To Get Traffic

Recently I wrote an article about using image searches as a way to get some extra traffic to your sites. Today I want to focus on another somewhat non traditional way of bringing in traffic to your site – video posting sites and searches. There are two basic types of video posting sites out there these days. One of the first, and arguably the largest, is Youtube. For those living under a rock for the last few years Youtube allows anyone to post videos on their site and anyone to watch those videos. With Youtube’s success search engines like Google and Yahoo started offering similar services. It was only a matter time before a porn equivalent came into existence.


Let me start by saying that I do not endorse using Youtube or Google Video or any of the “mainstream” video posting companies to drive traffic to your adult website. First off any type of actual porn will quickly be removed from their sites and you may end up banned from posting on the site. More importantly kids make up a large amount of visitors on these sites and trying to get them to your sites is a terrible idea. That said there are sites out there that are non-nude sites or bikini only type of sites. I have seen these types of sites promoted on places like Youtube and I would suggest if you are going to try to use these more mainstream outlets you stick strictly to that type of content. Also I would suggest you flag the videos as inappropriate for minors yourself. Eventually someone will probably do it for you and the videos will end up flagged, however, flagging them yourself is the responsible thing to do.

Sites like Porntube ( and Xtube ( are the adult answers to the Youtubes and Google Videos of the world. Sites like these are where you should focus your efforts when you post your porn videos. They want them and the people on those sites want porn so it is a winning situation for all involved. At the bottom of this article I will post a list of Porntube like sites. I can’t guarantee that they all have a lot of traffic, but they can give you a good idea of where to start.


Branding a video is the act of putting your url or site name on the video itself so that it appears in one of the corners as the video plays. I personally brand all the videos then end each video with a 5 second clip where the whole screen shows my url. Picking your url can be a key component to your success. You want something that is easy to remember. For example if you own and the second one is the one you want to use. It’s easy to remember, short and sweet and to the point. A word of warning here: if you are going to use sponsor provided content make sure you check with them before you go modifying their movies and branding them with your urls. Some have told me that they don’t mine me putting my 5 second url clip at the end of the movie, but they don’t want me to change the branding on the video and others have told me that I can’t alter them in any way. Both cases are understandable. It is their content and their program so you need to respect that and follow their rules. The last thing you want to do is put in a bunch of effort editing and posting videos and making sales only to have your account terminated for breach of terms. The best way to avoid this is to go out and buy some video content. There is a lot of affordable video content out there these days and you don’t need hours and hours of it so you can get what you need without spending an arm and a leg.

Once you have your videos branded you need to set up your domain to accept the traffic. If you are using your own videos to drive traffic to your site than you can have whatever you want on the site. If you are using sponsor provided videos make sure you follow their rules. Most sponsors don’t want their content used to promote other people’s sites. Design the site you are sending the traffic to accordingly and don’t be afraid to tweak the site as needed so that it turns the visitors to your site into clicks and sales to your sponsors. These sites are essentially filters between the video surfer and the sponsor so build them in a way so that they are always working towards getting the surfer to the best sponsor for their interest.

Now that your videos are branded and your sites are built, it is time upload. Most of these sites will require you to register before you upload and will have some sort of guidelines. Make sure to follow them. You are forming a relationship with the site so there is no use in trying to mislead them. When you post your videos you will be allowed add “tags” to your videos. These tags are basically keywords that will be used to find your videos when people use the site’s search function. Be thorough, but be accurate. If you have a MILF video, don’t use teen tags. If you have an anal video don’t use lesbian tags. You get the idea. It’s no different than people using a search engine. If they are searching for something specific and you lie to them about what is on your video, they aren’t going to check out your site and you’ve wasted everyone’s time.


After you have posted 3-6 videos and given them a few weeks to get into the system and start finding views you can start to take note of what is working and what isn’t. You may find that some of your videos that are getting a ton of views and others that get very few views. The key to success is figuring out what is causing the low views and fixing it. Maybe you need to alter your tag words, or you need to give your video a different, more appealing, title. Maybe you just need to drop that niche and focus on the type of videos you are getting good views for. Once you have a good system down and you are getting good views you can submit more movies. I wouldn’t go overboard and submit 10 a day, find a happy medium for yourself. Flooding the market won’t help you, but doing too few could hurt you as well. Don’t be afraid to make many sites and submit movies in many different niches.

Video posting is something that is growing fast and is already a very competitive world, but with a little persistence and some trial and error you can get some good traffic and earn some nice money by using these sites.

I personally use video charge ( to edit and brand my videos. It will cost you anywhere from $45 to $99 depending on what version of it you want. I’m sure there are other programs out there, this is just the one I use and wanted to share it in case there are people out there who don’t know where to start. One cool thing is that they offer a free trial so you can download it and play around with it to see if you like it before buying.

Here is a list of adult video posting sites. Again, I can’t personally vouch for the amount of traffic some of these sites have or how they will do for you, but it’s a nice place to start your research.

Now get out there are start posting some videos.
