CuriousToyBoy is back between his seemingly constant travels

benefits for monetizing the traffic you send to it. Read

Is up and running. We are now just awaiting
a few further modifications to bring it into CuriousCash.
The members area will take affiliate sales however the download
and streaming options will not so we will not be releasing
this site to our affiliates until all is 100%.
SITE: We are almost there.
The processor has completed 2 of the 3 scripts required so
not too far away now
Marketing Material: We have just loaded a
heap of new material into CuriousCash. Dynamic Content is
now available for our Highest Converting Sites and we have
even added a plugin content area. This section allows you
to hook up a page within your members area of you site and
get access to loads of content that CuriousCash has to offer.
This page will also be updated automatically every month.
of the Day and Gallery of the Day: have also made a return
New Processors Coming Soon: Thanks
to the guys at Mansion we will soon be bringing another 2
processors into CuriousCash. These processors will be OPS
Billing and MyVirtualCard. These are due for launch over the
next few weeks just as soon as Mansion completes their upgrade
Payout Methods in the Pipeline: We have discovered
that working external to the US can cause a few headaches
when it comes to Checks. As a result of this we are encouraging
everyone to select Wire (We charge no fees for wires) over
Checks and will soon also add Epassporte as a further payment
option and maybe even funds2go.
Fees: Now we all
know that credit card chargeback's are the ball and chain of
our industry. Changes in our processing arrangements,
which have increased returns under the cascading billing feature
of MPA3, have also hit us pretty hard when it comes to
- even though our chargeback rates are amongst the lowest
in the industry. Unfortunately, as and from 16th January,
whilst we have been able to increase revshare returns (see
box below), we have also had to introduce a fee to the affiliate
of $15 per chargeback. This is well short of what it
costs us in real terms, and we have absorbed the remainder.
Again we apologize, but we cannot dictate terms to the processors
Blog: We have just finished the install of
our new Gay Blog and this will be released to the webmasters
once it has been populated.
THAT ARE COMING SOON

Jamie had so much
fun doing his first shoot, I couldn’t resist getting
him back to stick his cock through the Gloryhole. First
I got him to put his dick into the new milking machine to
get it hard and then once he was horny and ready to go Jamie
slid his dick into the Gloryhole and Dirty Dave quickly
latched onto it.

do we need to do to stop you guys from showing nude pics
of ToyBoy on your site and in AVN?
Honestly I don't know. I know the first time ToyBoy appeared
in AVN may have been amusing and I am sure you were less
impressed by the January AVN Ad, but the latest pics from
Phoenix, Los Angeles and Costa Rica must have broke the Camels
I have tried on numerous occasions to get ToyBoy to control
this behavior and we seem to be fighting a losing battle.
Pics of ToyBoy's Ass have spread like wild fire and I think
it now seems impossible to control. I would say ToyBoy's
ass is now the most well know ass within the Adult Webmaster
Community. Although on a more serious note the ability to
get anything marketed well is definitely ToyBoy's forte
- even if it is pics of his ass.
So if you are looking for
any assistance in marketing I recommend you shoot ToyBoy
an email at email@example.com. For all of those of
you who attended the Phoenix Forum, I have to say

straight in for some counseling and am now negotiating

GALLERY SUBMITTING 101 - TEN STEPS TO SUCCESS
Step 1: Choosing the right Sponsor
Obviously before you can start your work you’d have to
choose a good sponsor. Spend at least 1 day for your
research, and try to find a Sponsor that’s not overused. I
personally don’t care much about the payout, as long as it’s
reasonable, I focus more on the quality of free content they
can provide, cause that’s important to get our galleries
listed, and that will be the most important factor to get
sales. When I’m looking for a new sponsor I just visit the
bigger TGPs and MGPs (sextracker.com), and look around what
they’ve listed right now. Most big sites sell their top
spots, and since the webmasters that buy these spots want to
get a good ROI it’s very likely that the actual site they’re
promoting converts well, so that’s a very good start to
pre-select. After you’ve found a few good sponsors, take a
look at their top sites, and try to estimate if they’re
actually overpromoted (alexa.com). If you select a sponsor
with ton’s of free hosted galleries you’ll not get listed
very often, since every TGP/MGP would just list the FHGs
with their own linking code. So we’re looking for a sponsor
with good content, that’s not overpromoted (i.e. lower alexa
rank) and without FHGs that everybody and his mother uses.
Please also take your time for this research, that can
easily take up to 1 workday.
Step 2: Hosting
Only go with paid hosting, and if possible with your own
dedicated server since virtual accounts would get too
expensive rather soon. To start I’d say a dedicated server
with ~1000GB data transfer/month should be enough for the
first months, as you’ll need some time to get started
anyway. At best your hosting plan should be expandable, as
you’ll need more bandwidth after a few months. Something
like that is available for $100 per month or even less these
days. Just ask on the WM Boards and you’ll get some offers.
Step 3: Domains
The domain for galleries isn’t so important at all IMHO, it
doesn’t hurt if it suit’s to the niche of your galleries
content somehow, and you should be able to use an email like
Step 4: Stats Program
Many people underestimate the value of a good stats program,
at best use a webserver based stats program (like
urchin.com), a image counter like sextracker.com should only
be a temp. solution since it’ll never be as accurate as a
counter with access to your server logs, and that’s
especially important if you want to dig a bit into SEO
(Search Engine Optimization) later on.
Step 5: Build Your
I’m not a designer, so I’ve never given too much about fancy
graphics on my galleries, it’s more important to have good
content IMHO. Before you start you’d have to select a
Picture or Movie Set. At best choose one with a girl (or
guy) that’s actually featured on the front page of the
paysite you’re promoting. Many people click through to the
actual gallery because they want to see more of that
content, so you should give them a bit more on the main
page, and hope that they wipe out their credit card to see
even more inside the members area.
For a TGP gallery I’m always using 16 Thumbs, the full-size
pictures should have between 40-100kb, and should have at
least 600 pix on the short side. For MGP galleries the
common standard is 3 Movies, with ~20sec runtime each, and
~1.5-3MB Filesize. You can also use 4 or 5 Movies, that will
actually give you the chance to submit to more sites, and
doesn’t have a too big effect on your bandwidth bill, since
most surfers only download 1-2 Movies anyway.
The actual thumbnails on your gallery should be as good as
possible, don’t use any automated tool to create them, make
them by hand in Photoshop, crop them to at least 100 pix on
the short side (better more), and adjust their color
balance, and brightness.
Take care that the general layout of your gallery looks
clean, don’t mix up landscape and portrait format, if you
have to, do it in a way that it actually suits the gallery
And I never use more than 2 outgoing links to my Sponsor,
cause some sites have a very harsh limit upon these, and if
your content is good enough the surfer will look for a way
to get more anyway, you can’t force him to signup with more
or blind links.
As links I personally always use text links, try to talk
directly to the surfer, and tell him why the site you’re
promoting is the one he should signup for. If you can’t come
up with a good reason you should choose another Site to
promote Stay away from banners, cause most galleries look
rather crappy with them.
A 2257 link would be also good for your galleries, I’m not
from the US either, but it doesn’t hurt, and many site
owners require it.
I also put lot’s of SEO work into my galleries, although a
gallery is pretty much the worst thing to optimize for
Search Engines it pays of, and I get ~30% of my long term
sales from SE Traffic. But
Step 6: Preview Thumbnails
I’ve made a separate explanation for these, since I think
preview thumbnails are more important than many submitters
might know. At first preview thumbs are required for so
called “Thumb TGPs” or “Thumb MGPs” (madthumbs.com). As you
can see almost all of these sites trade traffic with each
other, that means that they need a good overall productivity
(number of clicks per visitor) on their sites. To get that
high productivity these sites would need good thumbs, that
means for us submitters, the better we make our preview
thumbs, the more likely it’s to get listed at these sites.
So don’t make your preview thumbs with any automated tool,
make them by hand, and make them with a program like
Photoshop. Adjust brightness, color balance and sharpness if
Step 7: Submission Tools
If you’re absolutely new to gallery submitting, stay away
from any tools at the beginning, just start with good old
manual work to learn everything. A while ago I’ve built a
list for hand submission at AdultSponsorTest.com, you can
use that one to get started, although it’s a bit outdated by
Just use 3 Recips per gallery and submit away. If possible
use an email like webmaster(at)yourdomain.com, you’ll need
that later on anyway. When you get used a bit more to the
very basics, you can start using a submission tool like
AdvancedSubmitter.com, you should only use it as a manual
submission tool, that means only to create your mirror
galleries with Recips, and to fill the submission forms.
When you’re also used to that tool, the next logical step
would be to expand your existing submission list with either
the TGP Database or the MGP Database I’ve built. In the end
you should be able to submit a TGP and a MGP Gallery per
day, but at first I’ll have to show you how to get started
Step 8: Different Ways
Before I can continue here I’d have to explain what kind of
different TGPs and MGPs are existing.
-At first there are the ones that accept your submission for
free and without any limitations. That means you (and ~5000
other submitters) can submit their galleries to them
completely for free. After a review the site owner might
decide to list your work, or to not list it. Obviously the
competition there is rather big, so you’ll not get listed
very often, and the number of these sites keeps declining
too. So at max. you’ll be able to get ~10-15k uniques per
day from these sites. But considering that an average
gallery should be able to make a sale every 20-40k uniques
it’s a start. That would mean ~$200-250 per month for the
beginning. You’ll remain at that stage for the first 1-2
-The second group is more important. Many sites pre-select
their submitters, that means you’d have to contact them, or
send in an application with your name, nickname, email, some
sample galleries and a short story about yourself. If your
application was good enough you’ll be granted with a Partner
Account for that Site. This Partner Account enables you to
submit with less competition, which means that you’ll get
listed more often. And those Sites are bigger than the ones
from the first group too, so with a reasonable number of
Partner Accounts (150+) you’ll get ~70-150k uniques per day.
And since your galleries should also convert a bit better
meanwhile I’d say that would be ~$2-$4.5k per month.
Since there are more and more sites out there that require a
Partner Account I’ve developed PartnerRequester.com a while
ago, that tool gives you a ready to go list with ~1200
Sites, so you wouldn’t have to built/maintain that list
yourself. You should also consider that it takes a long time
to went through this stage, so if you’re completely new to
gallery submitting it will take you at least 1 year from now
until you’ll reach these traffic levels.
-The third group contains sites that require a payment or a
fee to get either a paid partner account, or a paid gallery
spot. These sites are obviously the biggest ones, but many
of them give a rather small ROI, so you’d have to know what
you’re doing. If you’re able to make use of lot’s of these
sites you’ll be able to get 300k+ uniques per day, but take
care of your overhead costs. Consider that it takes a lot of
work to get there, and at least 2 years of experience and
Step 9: Submitting
Now after I’ve explained the different ways to get listed
I’d like to explain how to continue with submitting.
Meanwhile you should be familiar with AdvancedSubmitter, and
if you’re using my DBs you’ll start to submit to the sites
from the first group I’ve mentioned. It takes a while until
traffic builds up, so just keep submitting, and don’t draw
any conclusions until the first month is over. As soon as
you have a few samples of your work, signup with
PartnerRequester.com and start applying for Partner
Accounts. Add your new partner Accounts to your actual
submission List ASAP, and after a month or so start to
remove those sites from your list that never list you.
Always follow the site rules perfectly, that means correct
descriptions, correct preview thumbs, correct Category, etc.
Step 10: Things To
-Always keep in mind that you’re competing with ~5000 other
submitters, that means to get good results you’d need to be
better than at least 90% of them. So average work isn’t
enough, if you want to belong to the top 10% earners, you’d
have to deliver top 10% quality.
-Try to do some networking on the boards, many site owners
only give away partner accounts on WM Boards, so don’t be
-Never get lazy, the harder it is to get listed at a
specific site, the harder it is for others too, which means
that you have better chances to get listed if you comply
with the sites requirements.
-Don’t get mad about a specific site or webmaster, it’ll
happen quite often that you’ll have to bend over. Get over
it and see it as a business expense.
