When it comes to recommending sites, products and services, it can sometimes be a bit of a contentious issue in that what may be productive for one entity may not necessarily work for another. With that said, we have been in this business a long time and can certainly make recommendations based on experience. For convenience and organizational reasons, we’ve separate the resources into specific sections below.
Consumer Confidence and Trust
WebsiteSecure.org is a trust seal provider that generates improved conversion ratios and additional traffic, simply by allowing sites to monetize their existing ethical behavior. The seals have already gotten more than 1.7 billion views and are visible on many leading sites in adult and mainstream.
Major review sites also note in their reviews which sites have become WebsiteSecure certified which enhances review traffic and can also provide a lift in affiliate webmaster traffic as well. The small service fee covers the cost of site inspections, test joins and monitoring while the greater conversion ratios make it a profitable addition to pretty much any website join page.
EngineFood.com — Without question, this is one of the premiere services for receiving professional text copy created specifically for your adult product, site or service. The emphasis here is on adherence to legitimate guidelines as set forth by the search engines themselves while providing the type of text and structure required for success.
The service here is courteous, the staff knowledgeable, and the level of professionalism stellar. When combined with favorable pricing, this one is hard to beat and is well worth the visit.
AdultSEOTraining.com — This is a company formed to assist webmasters and site owners alike overcome the common mistakes often created as a result of misinformation perpetuated by the proliferation of inexperienced people and outdated articles, of which there are many.
This is a no-nonsense, albeit very thorough, approach created by a very experienced individual within the adult webspace.
LemmeCheck.info — We would be remiss to not mention our own webmaster community. Ours, however, is unlike most adult communities in that ours is more focused on peer-to-peer assistance among webmasters, especially as it pertains to common scripts used on adult sites, both past and present.
Xbiz.net — This is not only a webmaster discussion forum, but is effectively the adult social network. That is, Xbiz is a peer-to-peer community of adult professionals engage in discussions that affect the industry. It is, without question, one of the most professional communities in the adult web space and a definite site to join.
Other Communities: there are certainly other communities out there that cater to adult. However, the two mentioned above should provide a great starting point for anyone involved in the adult industry.
