How to make money uploading porn in 2020 [UPDATED] – $50+ a day guide

How to make money uploading porn in 2020

After half a year of porn uploading my earnings are up to $2,000 a month. I decided to make a complete guide for you guys, so you can earn from this method too. Many people say that porn uploading is dead but, as you will see, this is evergreen. The sooner you catch the train, the more money you can make. And I will teach you how.

First of all, I should give you some proof of my earnings. So, let’s look at my 3 months stats (November-January).

Earnings proof Crakrevenue

Earning proof Chaturbate

I have been working on this for around 1-2 hours a day, that’s a very small amount of time considering the results that effort yielded. By putting in more time you could make way more than I do, I am in contact with people who make 3 times more than me. It all depends on how much time you are willing to invest into this method.

This method is really simple and you don’t need any technical skills. For the slightly more complicated aspects I will provide simple yet in depth instructions. You will download porn videos, cut them in free software like Movie Maker (Windows) or iMovie (Mac) and upload them to porn tube sites. You will need a domain, which will cost about $1 with GoDaddy and I will explain exactly how to go about this. And that’s all. So let’s get started, go through my guide and learn how to make real income for minimum effort.

I recommend that you read the whole article so you will get a better overall picture of this opportunity ? After you read it all you can start from the beginning and build your successful online business step by step?

Overview:

  1. Make Crakrevenue (or other network) account
  2. Choose a niche (offer)
  3. Register a domain
  4. Redirect your domain to offer
  5. Test your domain redirection
  6. Make account on popular porn site(s)
  7. Download popular videos from your niche
  8. Edit videos (cut video, add watermark…)
  9. Upload videos on your porn site account
  10. Analyze your stats

1) Make Crakrevenue (or other network) account

First of all you have to pick an affiliate network where you will send your traffic. I recommend that you use these two networks:

1) Crakrevenue – sign up here (affiliate link)

Crakrevenue network

I recommend Crakrevenue because they have many advantages. They have numerous quality offers and great pay-outs. They have nice affiliate managers who help people to earn more.

One great thing on Crakrevenue is their Smartlinks. These are links that you create according to your own criteria and your affiliate link will test different offers and pick the best for you! For example: for webcam videos, I can pick the cams niche and my affiliate link will redirect users to different cams offers (Slut Roulette, Royal Cams…)

When you are making your Crakrevenue account make sure to use your real details. Crakrevenue is a large and trustworthy company. You don’t need to worry about the security of your details.

Crakrevenue have to approve you as an affiliate so you will have to answer some questions. I will give you some advice on how to get approved.

How to be approved by Crakrevenue:

I joined with the Crakrevenue staff to put together these recommendations on how to be approved. So this is not just my personal advice but also Crakrevenue’s recommendations.

First of all you will need to answer the simple questionnaire. There some questions that apply to things other than merely uploading porn. Just bear in mind that you are not creating incentive or mainstream traffic. You should answer that you will send social traffic and that you are interested in PPL and PPS offers.

After making your application you will get an email from Vincent, the CR affiliate manager. He will ask you some simple questions and then decide if you are a suitable partner.

Rule #1

“You’re going to need a plan of action before applying to Crakrevenue. You will need to explain to them how you will send traffic to the offers etc.”

The more specific you can be, the better. Methods of generating traffic are what you will learn in this article, BUT, you have to convince Crakrevenue that you are serious about it. Give them some details about how much work you will put in and how you intend to try different approaches to get good results. Just try to stand out from the crowd ?

Rule #2

If you come from a T3 country you will have it harder. As Crakrevenue has had lots of fraudulent traffic that mostly came from accounts in T3 countries they are really careful about approvals. You will have to do a good job of convincing Crakrevenue that you are serious. Remember you can start uploading videos before you register on Crakrevenue and this will give you some results to show them.

Rule #3

Don’t lie. I know that you might not have much experience with online marketing and you really want to be accepted, but don’t lie. Be honest and admit that you have little experience but lots of time or motivation to keep learning and getting better instead of telling them that you are a professional online marketer (unless you really are, of course). Trust me, a good relationship with your affiliate manager, in this case Crakrevenue, is mutually beneficial.

Crakrevenue sign up

2) Chaturbate – sign up here (affiliate link)

Chaturbate affiliate program

Chaturbate is a site with webcam models who make live shows for users. This is one the most well-known webcam sites, which is great for when you promote it because people know they can trust this site.

Chaturbate offers $1 per free signup or 20 % revshare. Revshare works well in the long-term. It makes sense – you have a share of all the profits made by the users you send to the site. And it’s for a lifetime, so you are growing your user base and you will make more and more money over time. Snowball effect.

Update 28. 6. 2018:

When you use revshare model, keep in mind that it’s a matter of luck to catch people that spend many $$. In fact, one of the people I caught made me half of all earnings. So you can catch few spenders that make you big money, or you catch people that spend little or nothing. Just saying.

Update 26. 3. 2020:

I still recommend Chaturbate as main affiliate program for Cams, but there are many people complaining about models stealing registered users. For example: You bring user that register and spends money for few months, you’re happy that you have lifetime revenue, but some model ask him to make another account and sign up with her affiliate link = more money to her. This means you’ll lost this user and never have money from him anymore.

If you want to try another affiliate program, I can recommend BongaCash affiliate. You definitely heard of their site BongaCams which has huge marketing exposure.

Update 21. 5. 2020:

If you want to try Chaturbate affiliate program, which is still the best affiliate program for cams, in my opinion, you can check whole Chaturbate affiliate program review I published.

Don’t worry about approval here. I think that they approve everyone so don’t hesitate to sign up.

Chaturbate sign up

2) Choose a niche (offer)

First of all you need to choose your niche and offer. I would recommend you choose something you personally like, at least to start with. Otherwise you can ask your affiliate manager on Crakrevenue which offers are converting well.

These are examples of niches and offers related to them:

  • Classic webcams – Imlive.com, Chaturbate.com, Myfreecams.com
  • Shemale webcams – Shemale.com, Chaturbate.com
  • Hardcore videos (anal, whipping, cheating, domination…) – 18andabused.com, Punishtube.com, Brokenteens.com, Kink.com
  • Asian – JavHD.com
  • etc.

Or you can choose to send general/mixed porn traffic to dating offers using smartlinks, for example.

Update 21. 5. 2020:

If you want to know more about smartlinks – how it works, why should you use it, and what are the best dating smartlinks out there, check my new article: Best dating smartlinks

3) Register a domain

Your url should look like a serious site. The shorter the better. You can buy a domain anywhere, a well-known domain provider is GoDaddy.com.

Exclusive offer: Click here and buy a .com domain for only $0.99 on GoDaddy.com (note: GoDaddy renew this offer from time to time, but it is possible that it is not available while you’re reading this article)

Ultimate tip: If you want to promote a specific offer try to choose a domain that is similar to the original offer. For example, if you promote the Bangbros.com offer try something like Bang-bros.com, Bangbros.biz, Bangbross.com etc. People won’t be confused by redirection as your domain matches the original offer.

Update 26. 3. 2020:

It is great to have domain similar to offers name, BUT I found that it has some disadvantages, too. For example, if domain is too similar, they can force you to give them your domain. Another bad situation is when their affiliate program ends, so you have to choose another offer to promote. And it looks bad if you use bangbross.com domain and direct them to superhotnewoffer.com.

4) Redirect your domain to offer

You need to link to an offer of your choice. The link is generated by your network, so it depends on which one you use. On Crakrevenue your affiliate link should look something like this: https://t.frtyr.com/xXxxXxxXx?offer_id=X&aff_id=XXXX&bo=XXXX,XXXX,XXXX

Important! You should always insert additional information to your affiliate link. For example, you want to know which domains are bringing in traffic, especially important as you build up more domains. You will also want to know which landing pages you are sending traffic to. For this purpose you can insert additional info like “source” or “sub id”. You will need this for analysing your stats – the last part of this guide.

Example #1

You picked the Filf.com offer on Crakrevenue and you will send traffic to that offer through your “Myfilf.com” domain. Also, you picked an “auto-optimized” landing page. Your settings should look like this:

Crakrevenue link setup

Example #2

You decided to try a Chaturbate offer and chose Best Converting Tour (I recommend that). You will send traffic through Mysupergirlcams.com. Your link should look like this:

How to setup link on Chaturbate.com

How to setup domain redirection on GoDaddy.com:

1) My products -> 2) Manage -> 3) Use my domain -> 4) Connect -> 5) Forward to any site -> 6) Finish

1) My products
How to redirect domain on GoDaddy.com
2) Manage
How to redirect domain on GoDaddy.com
3) Use my domain
How to redirect domain on GoDaddy.com
4) Connect
How to redirect domain on GoDaddy.com
5) Forward to any site
How to redirect domain on GoDaddy.com
6) Finish
How to redirect domain on GoDaddy.com

5) Test your domain redirection

Make a simple test. Wait for about 5-10 minutes, the time it takes for the redirection setup to be completed by the provider. Then insert your domain into the browser and see if you are redirected to the offer you chose. If yes, open your Crakrevenue/Chaturbate statistics and look to see if you have a click recorded. It can take a few minutes until a click is displayed in the statistics. If not, check that the domain you typed is right and check that your domain is redirecting in the providers domain information page.

6) Make account on popular porn site(s)

Now you need to choose porn tube sites where you will upload videos. I highly recommend Xvideos.com as it’s the biggest tube site. More importantly, they are not strict about approving videos. Most other sites won’t let you upload videos with a domain in the title or with a watermark etc. So start with Xvideos.com and then you can progress to testing out other tube sites.

You can try these sites:

Making account on porn site

Of course this is easy but here are a few tips.

Profile gender – always female.

Profile name – choose either name related to your niche (Whipped whores) or to your domain (Meganfoxnudecom) or just name of imaginary person (Annie Fox).

Profile photo – this is easy. Add some hot amateur teen selfie with big tits and you will have tons of profile views and friend requests. Google “hot amateur mirror selfie big tits” or something like that and you will have thousands of choices.

Profile description – you can introduce yourself (your fake account), or you can advise people to subscribe to you. Adding a description or subscription prompt will make your account look more real and will net you some subscribers.

7) Download popular videos from your niche

You can download videos from any porn site using plugins but as I am a Mac user and there are not many free plugins for this I chose sites that offer downloads without plugins.

Redtube.com – Just make a free account and you will be able to download videos with quality up to 720p. There is a download button under every video (screenshot below).

Downloading porn from Redtube.com

I recommend Windows users find some good videos to download with Chrome plugins/add-ons.

How to pick videos to download

First of all, you need to download videos for the niche you chose before. Then you should pick videos by views and ratings. Views can often be faked so try to pick videos with high views that also have high ratings.

Quality > quantity

Ultimate tip: It’s not great when you need to show some .pdf to your boss and you open a folder containing hundreds of hardcore porn videos. So you should create ghost folders.

How to make your porn files not show in “All My Files”: (Mac users)

The “All My Files” search seems to respect the privacy settings in Spotlight. You can add a folder to the Privacy list there and it will no longer show up in “All My Files” but, of course, it also will no longer be part of Spotlight searches either.

Spotlight settings -> Privacy -> +

8) Edit videos (cut video, add watermark…)

I am using iMovie but you can use any software you are comfortable with. For example Windows Movie Maker, Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas etc. Editing videos maybe looks time consuming but it’s not that hard as you will create templates.

I have a different project for every domain. What I mean is that I have one template for one domain. This contains an image with a watermark and imported videos. With this I can move a video on the timeline, add a water mark and that’s it. Then I just cut the best part of video (cut scene is 1-10 mins), it’s good to look at the sound line, as it shows you where the video is most “emotional”. Pick that most emotional part and export the video with the name you want to upload it with. For example: “This teen enjoy her dildo – yourdomain.com”.

Ultimate tip: If you want to work faster you can just cut every video in the middle or cut after the first 5 minutes of the video and export it.

How to insert domain

Watermark

This is a simple domain text overlay in the corner of your video. Type “camgirl” on xvideos and you will see what I mean ? or you can look at the screenshot below.

How to make this watermark? Just take a screen shot of a video on xvideos for example. Open it in something like Adobe Photoshop. Delete the image, so you have only blank space (with the width and height of the video window). Then just add a text watermark (as on the screenshot below) in the corner of the image and save it as .png – with .png files the rest of the image will be transparent.

Domain name in video title

Xvideos takes your file name as the title so just name your video something like “This teen enjoy her dildo – yourdomain.com”. I use this in every video. It looks like xvideos don’t care about this practice so it’s a great way to get your domain name in front of viewers.

Update 26. 3. 2020:

Actually it is not a good idea to insert domain in video title as it’s the easiest way for porn sites to ban all your accounts. Focusing on watermarks is better option.

The final result should look like this for example:

Video with domain - Xvideos.com

9) Upload videos on your porn site account

There is nothing difficult about uploading. But I just want you to know that the title and tags are really important. That’s what influences how many people will find your video and how many of them will watch it.

As always, think outside the box. I will give you an example of one of my vids. I found a video of a teen having an orgasm in a café(?), it can be anywhere, there is just her on a couch in some room that looks like a public place. Okay, so what could I do with that? I can use the name of a well-known public café. So my title is something like this: “Xxxxx xxxxxxx at Costa Coffee”. Maybe you can find something much better, this was my best idea after the first month of doing this and now it’s my most viewed video on one of my niches.

Upload as many videos as you can. I started with 5 videos a day, but more videos = more views = more conversions = more $$$.

Important:

As you upload more and more videos to your account, sooner or later you will get a copyright notice. It just tells that you should prove to them that you have the rights to use the video or they will delete it. So just let them delete it. Every deleted video = 1 strike. If you have 3 strikes, they will delete your account. You really don’t want them to do this because you need your videos to stick around and generate stable traffic for you.

Xvideos copyright = 1 strike

Solution:

After your account gets 2 strikes just make a new account and start uploading again. Now, all your accounts will be operating with a max of 2 strikes. Videos and accounts will then age and you will get stable traffic.

10) Analyse your stats

Once you start sending some big traffic to your network (at least 100 clicks a day) it’s time to analyse your stats. Statistics are different on every site but I will show you the basic statistics on Crakrevenue and Chaturbate.

Crakrevenue:

These are statistics by date. You can see if your traffic grows over time with these stats.

Crakrevenue statistics by day

These are statistics by sub ID. I used sub ID to differentiate traffic based on the domain it comes from. I can see which accounts perform well (because I always use just one domain on an account).

Crakrevenue statistics by subid

Also, sorting by offer is good as you see which offer performs well. A main indicator of how good offers work is EPC, which shows how much money you earn from 1 click.

Send your traffic to the offer with the highest EPC.

Chaturbate:

Chaturbate have quite poor statistics compared to those on Crakrevenue. Basically, you can sort your statistics by date and tracking code. I use tracking codes as an indicator of the domain where the traffic comes from, so I can see which domains perform best. However you can use it to differentiate multiple sources of traffic like pornsites, tumbr, twitter etc.

Conclusion

Making money with porn is really easy. BUT! It takes some time until videos get aged and you start to have stable traffic. It took me about 1 month to start seeing some conversions. After 3 months I made my first $1,000. So be patient, continue uploading even if you don’t have conversions, just try to grow your traffic. After some time you will have traffic that starts to convert and if not you can just redirect this traffic to another offer. The most important thing in affiliate marketing is to have traffic! When you have traffic, you can test it, sell it or send it to different offers. You can play around and earn cash.

Update 28. 6. 2018:

Because I have more friends that started with porn uploading too, I can tell you more about different scenarios of starting this business. Some of my friends got little traffic and no conversions for a long time, for example 3 months until they have made their first conversion. But as they keep working, their traffic grows and now they have bigger and bigger conversions (talking about Chaturbate revshare). So don’t give up until you work for at least 3 months. Other friends got conversions in first month (mostly PPS offers on Crakrevenue) but they gave up because they had little time (they have other businesses). So in summary, I wanted to tell you that maybe you will see conversions soon, maybe you will wait for few months. BUT you will definitely see traffic and conversions, like everyone that tried this method.

Update 26. 3. 2020:

After almost 3 years after publishing this article, many things changed. It is now harder than before to keep your accounts alive. It’s still possible to earn money with this method, but it would be harder. I recommend you to try it for few months max and if you see no results, you should better try another method (I will write new method on this blog in near future). I got my biggest accounts deleted so my traffic dropped about 90%. My earnings are also down by 90% on Crakrevenue, because I’m working on different projects (will write about them soon). BUT I build revshare income from Chaturbate affiliate program, which generates me $200-500 a month – and I didn’t work on this for almost 2 years! This is really passive income, I don’t have to do anything and it keeps earning me money all the time. So if you’re trying porn reupload method, I recommend you to go with revenue share offers because when tube sites delete your accounts, you’ll have your hard earned paying users for lifetime!

Hope this guide will help you to reach your dream income. If you like this guide and want to try it, sign up on Crakrevenue and Chaturbate with my link (Chapter 1). And if you have any questions, just ask in comments below 🙂

I also publish new content from time to time, which could be valuable for you, if you’re making money from porn.

    1. Hi, it definitely works 🙂 This method is here for many years and there is no reason why it should stop. The sooner you start, the better 🙂 I recommend you to try more niches at once. Pick 2-3 niches, buy domain for each of them, make 2-3 accounts and upload on all of them 🙂 For example, you can pick webcam, hardcore and asian niches. For each niche you need to find good offer that is related to your niche. Buy domain that suits your niche and upload amateur videos with watermark. Thats all. Few of my friends see results now after 2 months of uploading so don’t give up too soon 🙂

        1. Sorry, I can’t tell you that. If I did, my niche would be saturated. Ask affiliate manager to give you some advices. You can even hit much better niche than me.

      1. Hello Friend…I have some questions need you guide.
        1-for domain that we redirect offer link, need to build backling or not?
        2-when we upload video to adult site but don’t get more views, if we look at other videos after only 2 days uploading gets 1000+ views.
        I am waiting to your reply…
        Thanks

        1. Hi 🙂
          1) No. You have no own content so it is waste of money/time to build backlinks.
          2) I actually didn’t understand your question, but if you ask why some videos get low views and some get high amount of views fast, then there could be many reasons. For example account which uploaded video have lots of subscribers so these subscribers boost videos after uploading. But generally it’s just a luck in my opinion. Sometimes a good video gets low views and sometimes shit video get huge views. Try to write catchy titles – it will make people to click and watch the video and this should kick it at start.

  1. Hi Dominic,
    Seems like some top porn tube sites are not even allowing domain names to be included in the title, description etc ? Which porn sites do you recommend to be used for uploading our videos now?
    Waiting for your kind advice bro

    1. Hi, I use only xvideos for uploading. I tried lots of tube sites like Redtube, Xhamster, Pornhub, Youporn, Spankbang… but I think that it was just lost of time. On most of them, my videos wasn’t approved or got little views. Not worth the time in my opinion. Xvideos is (in my opinion) only site that doesn’t care about domain in title etc. So I would recommend you to stick mainly to xvideos. You can test other sites in free time 🙂

      1. Hi Dominic, I have a xvideos channel. Anyway I can attract more views and followers to it?
        How to multiple money taking advantage of my own content?

        1. Hi Richard. If you have your own content and have a channel on xvideos, I would say that easiest way to scale (multiple) this is by setting up your channel on other big tube sites – Pornhub for example. In terms of more views, I recommend to use translations on your video titles. Best would be to get translations from native speakers, but Google translate could do a job too. I mean, add more languages while uploading videos. Another ways to boost your views: 1) Use catchy titles (capitals, shocking titles.. look what works for others or lets use your creativity), 2) Manually choose video thumbnails so the best photo preview are visible for people browsing on xvideos. 3) Use call to action (in video, or in title/description – simply tell people that they should like your video etc. If you want to get more followers, tell them that they should follow you and tell them why they should follow you. Do you plan to upload more content that they like? Think of something that will motivate them to follow your channel. This is what comes to my mind. Let me know with your results! Hope you’ll grow your followers and views 🙂

  2. Hey Dominic, I have a question I have seen some people say that xvideo will ban your account without any warning, is that true?

    1. Hey Vincent, it’s true. It is much harder now to make big accounts with many views :/ Old accounts are still alive, but new accounts getting bans really fast.

      1. Does it mains this uploading videos to xvideo method literally died? Newcomers may never be able to make certain traffic through accmulating views day by day. What are you doing recently? Ant alternative like tumblr, instragram? Or I heared some people said dating offers is the trend now, do you have experience about this?

        1. I don’t know, but it is really harder now to get high amount of views. I live mostly from older accounts I made last year. I did’t try another traffic source yet. I tried Tumblr last year with no success. And yea, dating is poplar right now, but problem is to get views on xvideos now, and it doesn’t matter if it’s on dating or other offers.

  3. Fuck,then for nowcomers like me might need to find a new effectively working method, But does it exists? How can we be creative in this area…… I think tumblr really hold a lot traffic, but will people on tumblr willing to sign up in cam sites or pay?

    Ps: Is it true that xvideo will ban your account without any warnings described in your article?

    1. You can try Tumblr and you will see 🙂 I tried it with PPS offer which is not the best way in my opinion. Maybe some PPL offer will work better, there is definitely traffic, but I don’t have experience with it.

      And yea, they are deleting accounts without any warnings now. No strikes, no copyrights.

  4. Wow,you can be a good lecturer! Thank you. Now a question please,after buying a domain do i have to pay for hosting or not?

    1. Hey, thanks for your kind words 🙂 To your question: You definitely NOT need to buy hosting. Many people will tell you that you need to have hosting, but its just because they want commission from your purchase. All you need is just a domain.

  5. Hey Dominic, I have a question. Nowadays xvideos asking for video verification. How to do that? If I want to earn money. Please guide me. & how much I earn per 1000 views for a video? Please clear my doubts

    1. Hey Lisa, I have never had verified account so I don’t think it’s important. Just setup normal account and upload videos. It is now limited to 3 videos per day at start, so just make many accounts and upload 3 per day on each.

      I made some stats about earnings per 1000 views but it is more than year old. But it was between 0.08-0.15 $ per 1000 video views. But definitely depends on niche, offer etc.

  6. Good day Dominic,i must say your article was helpful. I have some questions to ask.
    1.aside purchasing a domain, is it a must to own a website or blog and a host.

    2.base on your statistical assumption, 0.08-0.15$ earnings is made from 1000views only,thats means 7000views will make 1$+? Just want to be clarified.

    3.can you make a video tutorial on this article so that I can follow the steps. I learn faster via video tutorial.

    4.can I have your email because I will need guidance while starting this new business. Here’s my email =lloydceasar95@gmail.com.thanks for your assistance.

    1. Hello Michael. To your points: 1) All you need is a domain, so you can redirect your traffic. You don’t need website or hosting. 2) Yes, based on those stats. It can be different by this time. And keep in mind that this is rough estimation, so you can have much higher or much lower $ per 1000 views. 3) I’ve never thought about making a video tutorial, but it doesn’t seem like a bad idea. If I’ll make it, I’ll definitely let you know by a blog post on this blog. 4) If you’ll struggle with anything, just post a comment in this post so other people can learn too. By sharing our problems and solutions, we all learn how to make things better.
