What adult traffic broker pays the most for pop-unders?

This is a question I see repeated on adult webmaster boards and the answer is: Almost all of them!

How  is that so? I just got paid very little from my huge amount of traffic….  

That my friend, is either because you are not paying attention or because you are not tracking what you do. Either way, you are loosing money. Every hour, of every single day.

See the way this works is quite simple. Buying or selling traffic with self service adult traffic brokers is based on a bidding system and a minimum price. So the program usually sets a minimum price for a visitor (minimum cost per visitor or CPV) that advertisers or adult media buyers has to pay, in some cases the CPV can be as low as 0.0001 (CPM 0.01) or as high as 0.03 (CPM30) – it depends on how well the broker can monetize the traffic themselves. Some programs doesn’t buy their own traffic and just send it to a backup URL, that’s fine too.

So when a media buyer places a bid, he says he wants to buy X volume of Z type for Y price. If another buyer then comes and wants to by the same type of traffic, he will need to overbid to get it if the full inventory is sold out.

What? Okay, to rephrase it.

If the adult traffic broker has one million popunders of daily Android adult US traffic and they already sold the whole million for a period of time, anyone wanting to buy the US Android traffic, will have to pay more to get it. Or wait.

How does this affect you as a publisher? Well for one thing media buyers actually dictate the price you are getting for your adult popunder traffic and those guys (and gals!) monitor their campaign vigorously every single day. So. If they are buying YOUR traffic via a broker and it’s not performing well, they will lower the price…

or (and this is more likely of course since your traffic is top notch!) if they are buying a large portion of adult traffic from the broker you are using to pop with, and a large portion of that traffic comes from another publisher that isn’t converting, they will lower the campaign 😉

In reality it’s an ongoing battle between media buyers, when the price has been bid too high for their taste from that best performing adult traffic broker they move to the next one on the list, then the price drops with the prior one and after a while when the other guy has spent his budget or moved on, the first media buyer returns to scoop up the traffic again.

So the answer is all of them or none of them. What you can do as a publisher is another matter, here is what I wrote on GFY earlier today:

Playing the pop-under game is a constant game of monitoring what networks pay the most for what GEOs and this changes – almost every single day. If you have large volumes, you can instantly see when a big media buyer changes his bids or even when he moves from one program to the other.

There is nothing wrong with the above picture, it all depends on your GEO mix. First of all, most programs have a cap on how may times per hour/day they resell an IP. If your surfer already hit their network earlier, you won’t get paid when you pop him. So 24K visits, can easily become 20..

Then think about how some GEOs pay as little as $0.1 CPM you can easily end up only earning $10 or $15 for pops with your traffic.

You need to be able to track what programs pay for what GEO pops. For example, PlugRush allows you to use up to 10.000 trackers with their direct link for pops – this way you can track what GEOs pay for what. For example:

plugrush traffic popunder example
Obviously this requires that you are able to control where you send your popunders and that programs support a direct link option. Trackers or not, if you can control where and what volumes you send to the brokers, you can monitor what you get paid and adjust the traffic to the broker that pays the most. And you need to be doing this, every single day.

In the above example, it’s based on Country/OS. So traffic from China with the android OS is not a high price, but it’s an OK price for CN traffic.

If you can’t track the traffic, you simply have to monitor your average CPM. But then you have to use different programs for different sites and the GEO mix might not be the same and you end up picking a broker on data you can’t really use.

In any case, I know that ExoClick, JuicyAds, PlugRush, PulpyAds and SmartxAds have direct links you can use for pops.

And there you have it, it’s all a matter of the usual market mechanics – supply and demand. And you, as a salesman need to know what you are selling and who is willing to buy the most.

FEBRUARY 23rd 2016 UPDATE: You can get a direct link with ClickPapa too if you ask them (and don’t cheat!) and they have BY FAR the most advanced fallback system. They pay very well for pops too!

Trade traffic and win with PlugRush

Right now is a good time to start trading traffic with PlugRush. They are running a widget competition and as such, are probably gaining a lot of traffic. This means more traffic to trade (and traffic to buy if you are an advertiser).

Trading traffic is simple, you just have to create plugs. What’s a plug you say? It’s an ad. But it’s free ad for your content.

To create a plug with PlugRush, first you pick a piece of content that you want to promote. In this case we’ve taken a blog post, but you can use video clips or anything you want really. Once you have found your content, you go to: Publishers -> Plugs and click on Add Plug.

Select the website, the plug type (most will be regular plugs, unless you run a gallery site). A URL to the content in the plug (this is the URL that the traffic will go to!).

Now give your plug a title and description that matches the content on the page and in the image. Add a thumbnail with content that matches the content on the page. This is important, if you do not do this your plug will be rejected. Pick the category/ies that matches the content.

Here is an example:
create-plug-example

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now hit save.

Crop the image so it looks good, don’t make it too so small that it gets pixelated. Here is what I did:
crop-plug-example

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now your site will be listed as pending and you can go back to create more:

pending-plug-example

 

 

 

 

There is no limit to the amount of plugs you can create. The more you create the more traffic you will get. Once your plugs starts getting approved, you will want to go back and check how they peform. Good plugs will have a low CTR, that means a low amount of views is required for a click.

Like this one:

good-performing-plug

 

 

 

This plug got me 30.833 visitors. See how the CTR is “low”? You want to aim for that. Once you find the formula for what works for you, start building!

So what are you waiting for? Grow you traffic today with PlugRush traffic trading!

Free Money Making Guide for easyXsites users

Use Responsive PlugRush Ads on  easyXsites!

Not too long ago easyXsites released their new blog script, this script meant that everyone can now add their own banners to blogs and have a lot more freedom than the old script allowed. As always, you can use the new PlugRush widgets on the tube script.

But it also meant that you need to re-add your PlugRush ad widgets to your blog if they were missing!

So if you still haven’t done this, you should get to work because PlugRush widgets will earn you both traffic and cool cash.

UPDATE: PlugRush has now released their responsive widgets for everyone, so please update all your widgets to the responsive version to ensure that you monetize your mobile adult traffic!

In this adult webmaster guide you will find a simple guide to getting it done. The guide works for both blogs and tubes, so let’s get started adding some adzone widgets to your adult site so you can start earning some money!

1. First log into your easyXblog or your easyXtube and sign into PlugRush.

2. Find your site in PlugRush, click ‘Manage Adzones‘, copy the prXXXXXX part of the Library Integration code for your site, like this:

 3. You now go to your SEO Editor page on the site (Manage Site -> SEO) and input the pr code you copied, like this:

 Remember to save the code, by clicking the ‘save changes’ button at the bottom of the page!

4. Now you go back to PlugRush and create an adzone. But make sure that you opt in for the new and responsive adzones for your sites first, by enabling ‘PlugRush Labs’, like so:

 5. Now you are ready to create your first Adzone. You do this by clicking ‘Create Adzone’ and then you pick the ‘Widget 2.0′ option (if you don’t have the ‘Widget 2.0’ option, you can wait for it to be enabled or add the old widgets.If you add the old widgets, easyXsites can update them for you later when the 2.0 widgets are released for everyone!

You should now see a screen that looks like this:
PR-responsive

Pick the responsive option. You want this. Responsive means the wiget will adapt to the size of the screen your visitor is using – this is a must – so please always have the responsive option set to on. Google will love it!

Now you select the size:

PR-responsive-2

The size you pick is the minimum size that the widget will load, so do not make this too big.

 

Now you can customize it with niches and types. Try out the different styles, but usually the default one works the best. Once you are done customizing the widget, hit ‘Save as a new widget’, give your widget a name and hit ‘Save widget’. Now a box appears with a bunch of code, copy this part:

 

6. You are now ready to add your adzone widget to your site, so go back to your easyXsite and navigate to ‘Manage Site -> Layout’ and once there, you click the ‘New Ad Widget’ button and select ‘New Javascript Ad’ – like so:

 7. Now you give your adzone a title and paste the code you copied from PlugRush, you can use basic html in this box. Like this:

You hit ‘Save Ad’ and then you drag the adzone into the area where you want it to display. You drag by left clicking on the widget and holding the mouse button down, drag it and release it in the zone where you want it to appear.

In this example, we want it to be a header ad, so we drag it into the Top Content area, like so:

Voila! You are now done, your adzone widget should appear on your site and you are now earning money and trading traffic!

Here is how it looks on the example site:

That’s it! You are ready to start making money and trade traffic at the same time. It’s quite simple really, if any traffic that isn’t sold is traded. So if you send 1000 US visitors, you get 1000 fresh US visitors back to your site. You might think why would I trade 1000 for 1000? Isn’t that like swapping beer? Maybe, but the beer you are swapping is not the same and maybe you like what you get more than what you had….

In other words, 1000 fresh visitors to your site will raise the awareness – it’s 1000 NEW people that don’t know your site and maybe they like your site and bookmarks it. Then they come back.. again and again.

So what are you waiting for!?! Join the community of more than ten thousand webmasters over at www.easyXsites.com and get started using PlugRush today! I promise you that you will not be disappointed!

Is the age of mobile redirects over?

With the latest buzz in the adult webmaster community about Google cracking down on mobile redirects, we might ask ourselves, is the golden days of redirecting mobile traffic and making good money doing so, over? Yes and no would be my reply.

The age of blind redirecting all user agents that comes from a mobile device is over, don’t do it. I cannot stress this enough. The only exception is if you have a mobile version of your site optimized for that particular device, then you can do it.

So what now? Well you can keep selling blind traffic if you want to, but it has to be clicked – but why would you do that? Why not start today and redesign your sites to be responsive? It makes perfect sense and allow me to tell you how.

In the past (that is a few years ago) most mobile devices had small screens with poor resolution and a small percentage of your traffic comes from mobile, combine that with the mobile billing that most phones had enabled by default – well – let’s just say that some found a way to make a fortune with this. Today, it’s different. Most consumers (surfers) using mobile devices are on wifi, not carrier based and even those that are, know how to protect themselves from charges they did not want. People are also reporting that tablets and smartphone traffic is now surpassing desktop traffic. Do you really want to sell that traffic and risk being penalized by Google? Not anymore. It was worth it 6 months ago and before that, but it seems those days are over? Now what?

Well you can still use pop-ups and banners on your mobile optimized website. Make a responsive website, slap a PlugRush widget on it (disable blind/mobile redirects!) and you will avoid the penalization risk. You also present the visitor with your actual website and if they don’t want to buy your content, they will probably click on the widget or banner on the site. Win/Win
