The most popular way to make money writing online is to sign up for Google's AdSense Program and display ads on your website or blog. According to Google however, adult encompasses the following and is therefore prohibited: lewd or provocative images, crude or indecent language including adult stories, adult toys and products etc. Obviously photos or videos which depict nudity or sexual activity are also unacceptable. Since sex sells, it is possible to make a reasonable side-income with an adult website or blog. Here is how to make money writing erotica and/or maintaining an adult blog.

Items you will need

  • Niche
  • Adult Blog Host
  • Sponsor Sites
Step 1

CHOOSE A NICHE Choosing a niche in the adult porn industry may require a little thought as there are a myriad of choices such as amateurs, Asians, anal, BDSM, gay, lesbians, MILF, shemale etc. out there. Always choose a niche that you have the most interest in, and where you can be the most original.

Step 2

SIGN UP WITH AN ADULT BLOG HOST Register with an adult blogging host such as Thumblogger, SensualWriter, BlogBugs, or Mysexylog just to name a few. Do some research and choose the one that best suits your needs. Most of these hosts supply ready-made templates for members to use, eliminating the need to have web page design and layout experience.

Step 3

CHOOSE THE RIGHT NAME FOR YOUR BLOG The name you choose should be easy to remember and should describe what your blog is about. As your blog expands and starts receiving more traffic, consider registering a domain name with NameCheap.com, Moniker.com, Domainsite.com, Xrdomains.com, or Name.com. Expect to pay about $8 - $10 per domain. By registering a domain name you ensure that it's easy for people to find your site on the internet. A good domain name will also attract lucrative sponsors and advertisers who want to advertise on respectable, well put together blogs.

Step 4

SIGN UP WITH AN AFFILIATE MARKETING PROGRAM Essentially, you make money with an affiliate marketing program by promoting and collecting a commission when a product sells. Additionally affiliate programs may offer webmaster referral revenue. If you refer another webmaster to the program, you'll receive 5 to 10% of their income. This is a great way to earn passive income without having to do any work yourself.

Step 5

DISPLAY SPONSOR WEBSITES You may also choose to provide links to other websites with adult content galleries, videos and chat. Such sites then become your sponsor sites. If a visitor on your blog likes a sponsor website and decides to buy a subscription, you the blogger then receive a commission. This is another form of earning revenue through an affiliate marketing program.

Step 6

SIGN UP WITH AN AD NETWORK Much like traditional bloggers make money through Google's AdSense, adult bloggers can also make money when the ads displayed on their blog are clicked on by visitors.
Here are a few advertising networks that accept adult content: AdBrite (Black Label Ads), AVN Ads, AdEngage, Etology, and Ero-Advertising. Do some research and decide which ads to display on your blog. Remember the ads you display should be content relevant

Step 7

PROVIDE GREAT CONTENT Providing good, original and/or useful content is critical if you're looking to monetize your blog and earn a significant income. You want visitors to like your content so much that they will subscribe to your blog, and perhaps even help you make some serious money by clicking on your ads and/or signing up with one of your sponsor sites.

Good Luck with Your Adult Blog.
