    Can I get a Sticky Please:x:

    Ok, since I got into the Adult Blogging world a few months ago. Ive learned alot and now I want to share how I make an Adult Blog. :wiggle: If you follow me step by step you shouldnt have a problem trying to figure anything out, but if you have any questions feel free to PM me or email me at [email protected] and I will help you out as best I can.

    These are the places you need to register an account.
    1.Thumblogger-http://www.thumblogger.com/thumblog/register.php
    2.Feedburner-https://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/register
    3.Add This!-http://addthis.com/account.php
    4.Adengage-http://www.adengage.com/sign_up.cfm (Sign up for Publisher and Advertiser Account)
    5.Google Analytics-http://www.google.com/analytics/ (You need a Google account)
    6.Yahoo-http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/ (You need a Yahoo account)


    For this list of instructions you need to use a sponsor that provides:
    Preferably - Gallery URL, Thumbnail URL, Short description, Long description.
    Will work - Galley URL, description. What I did originally was use Excel, create 4 columns Subject, Gallery, Image, and Message. Then I named the worksheet for a paysite, named the workbook for a Sponsor. I cut and pasted all the FHG information from the sponsor onto the spreadsheet. Sometimes all you get is a gallery URL and a description. I was good opening the galleries in a browser and viewing an image and cutting and pasting the URL, and I would reuse the description for the subject. That was stupid of me. I saw a marked improvement in income when I started at least editing one of them. One thing you do not want to do is use the "Re-use log entries" feature. The date is part of the log entries URL and when you reuse a log entry you redate it. Now the URL from before is broken since the post from the date it was is gone. What I did on the spreadsheet to track where I was, was change the text I post to red until I had used all the FHG, then turn it all back to black and start over.

    1. Register a subdomain.
    2. Open Word. I like Word because it gives me the character count. (Tools/Word Count... and underscores in red my misspellings) Decide on a Title and a Description and chose 10 Keywords and write these out. (Title should be no more than 4 words and should NEVER be changed, ever. Description should be no more than 254 characters, including spaces, I go over 254 and I start cutting text. Keywords should be separated by a comma.) I suggest that this information be recorded in a spreadsheet. In Thumblogger if you decide to change your template, this information will need to be reentered, sucks not to have it recorded. I know... :wtc:
    3. Record the information on a spreadsheet. If you ever change the template you are using the information will have to be reentered and you will love the fact you have a spreadsheet with the info.
    4. Login to Thumblogger, click on edit beside the name of your new Thumblog.
    5. Under Options/Options
    a. Enable RSS, check the three boxes, and input the title and description for RSS (Use the title and description you wrote for the Thumblog)
    b. Reset "Number of Log entries" from 35 to 8 in all three fields.
    c. Check the box: Disable comments on your blog
    d. Switch the editor to "The old editor, blogger look (Activate HTML tab on load )" (Makes it easier for me to edit)
    6. Go to Options/Move Boxes and move the Info, Links, and Bookmark boxes to the center.
    7. Go to Looks/HTML wizards and click HTML begin, and enter Title, Description, Keywords, click Change.
    8. Go to Looks/ Page header and click HTML begin, under "3. Image header disabled" enter Title for Header text and Description for Quote text.

    Periodically I like to pick a 3 word search phrase and go to Google and examine the top ten returned search results. I examine description in Google, the meta tags of the top ten sites, PR, and keyword densities, and several other items. I noticed last time, not long ago, that if there were extra spaces in the description meta tag it could (NOTE word could) throw off the description Google displays. Google normally pulls the search result description from the description metatag. So I have started tweaking the html template. Some templates have extra space in the meta tags. So I suggest you Login to Thumblogger. Go to Looks - click on HTML templates - then click on HTML begin. Look at the meta tags. IF they have extra white space after the name attribute delete it to one space. Also to be in total compliance all meta tags should be self closing. All that means is the individual meta tags should end "]" />" except robots and Content-Type that should end " />(quote mark, space, backslash, greater than sign). I do not think this was a problem in the past. But if Google does tighten up the checking of standards compliance, it could effect placement. And I am NOT trying to start a Google discussion, my thought and comments are mine. Also, Please do not ask Twan to fix this. I do not believe it is something that could be accomplished with out risking other problems cropping up and I have faith Twan will read at least this part since I have used his name.

    9. Go to Looks - click on HTML templates - then click on HTML begin. Look at the meta tags. IF they have extra white space after the name attribute delete it to one space. Also to be in total compliance all meta tags should be self closing. All that means is the individual meta tags should end "]" />" except robots and Content-Type that should end " />(quote mark, space, backslash, greater than sign).
    10. Go to Blog/Categories/Manage categories and click edit beside General. Under Name type a descriptive name, Mature Tits, Teen Sex, something based on your keyword/focus of the blog. For short name use the same words except, no spaces and lower case, maturetits, teensex. Do this BEFORE you add posts. DO not change the catagory after the Thumblog is build.
    11. Go to Blog/Log items and enter some posts. I would use FHG’s and post at least 100. If you are going to start trading links immediately, post the numbers of post that show in the archive box and on the index page as past posts to give the Thumblog body.

    At this stage of the game you actually do have a working blog that could make money, but nobody knows it exists. Now comes the marketing.

    Continued...

    1. Open three tabs in your browser. Thumblogger, Feedburner, AddThis!
    2. Go to Feedburner.com and register the blog. Make sure you like the title of the feed. I use Publicize: PingShot, FeedCount, Chicklet Chooser, and Email Subscriptions.
    2. Go to addthis.com click Get Your Button on the index page. Select "Bookmarking and Sharing", blogging platform chose other, change where to "on a blog", click "Get Your Free Button >>"and you now have the bookmark widget code.
    3. Go to Options/Boxes/ Manage boxes and click edit for the first empty or unused box.
    4. Name the box Subscribe to me...

    I know some people consider five items in the Subscribe to me... box cluttered. But, I have my reasons and that is the way I like to do it for my particular brand/style of marketing. I also respect others might want to do away with it all and just have an RSS icon. That is your decision. You have to do in life what you think is right. I do...
    Quick note about the Feedburner Email Subscriptions... I tested the system to see what I would receive as email. All the links lead back to the Thumblog. I liked that. My fear is there would links to the galleries listed in the posts. Last thing I need is the sponsor thinking I am using SPAM email to send them hits and get shut down.

    5. Paste "Bookmark (CTRL-D)" - your Email Subscriptions, FeedCount and Chicklet Chooser code into the box, and your Bookmark widget code from AddThis.com. Click Change. (I edit the paragraph tags out of the Email Subscriptions code from Feedburner to make it a shorter box) Check both boxes. Click Change.
    6. Go to Options/Boxes/ Manage boxes and click edit for the first empty or unused box.
    7. Name the box More Good Porn!!!
    8. Add links to all your sites in this box. Check both boxes. Click Change.
    9. Go to Options/Boxes/ Manage boxes and click edit for the first empty or unused box.
    10. Name the box PicRush and check enable only.
    11. Go to http://www.picrush.com/index.php register the Thumblog and copy the code and paste it into the box named PicRush. I hate and despise having traffic leaks on my sites, but I like that picrush is built for equity. I add picrush in a box that is enabled, but does not have "Surrounded by a box" checked. I like to put picrush below my subscribe box and my porn sites box.
    12. Go to Options/Move Boxes and move Subscribe to me..., More Good Porn, and PicRush to the right column.
    13. Go to Google Analytics. You will need to "Add a Profile" and then cut and past the code given you immediately before the </body> tag. Use "New Tracking Code (ga.js)", not the Legacy Tracking Code. Looks/ HTML templates/ HTML end - just before the </body> paste the code. Click Change. Go back to Google Analytics click Finish, and click status till tracking code is verified. One in ten times I have to give it 5 minutes, but it has always verified.
    14. Go to https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/submit and submit your Thumblog and your RSS feed.
    15. Debated about adding this, but it is part of my check list since search engines are my prime focus. Go to https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/mysites and add your Thumblog to your list of sites. You will not be able to add your RSS feed. But you can "Authenticate" your Thumblog. Yahoo specifically states that having a site listed here will not help your ranking, but anything I can do to get more in the face of Google or Yahoo, I do...
    16. Once you have added your site to https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/mysites you need to click on "Authenticate" beside the URL. You will see an y_key metatab, copy it. Go to Looks - click on HTML templates - then click on HTML begin and paste the y_key metatag Yahoo displayed for you below the other metatags and insure it is closed properly. Go back to Yahoo Site Explorer and click "Ready to Authenticate", it will take a day or so. If it fails double check the tag and click "Ready to Authenticate" again.
    17. Go to Free Adult Webmaster Stuff and add your URL to the "Adult Directories/Search Engines", the "RSS Feed submission" and the "Search Engines" that do not require a reciprocal link. There are 29 at this writing. FREE Links, you can not beat that...

    Now you are own your own. This is the very basic.

    You now have a blog that is SEO (Search Engine Optimized) with content that will notify the world of its existence through the Feedburner.com ping, and is crosslinked to your other blogs and sites. Personal recommendation is leave the site to brew/bake/simmer, however you wish to say it. Build at least 11 more blogs on the same niche and crosslink them. I am not going into marketing but this is where your marketing plan kicks in.

    Other things you can do are:

    1. Add banner ads to the side columns. DO NOT forget to add a sentence of text below each ad. TEXT sells much better than 'picture ads' in the columns, but you need to banner/picture ad to catch their eye.
    2. Look into using the Shared box, RSS box, and the Random boxes. Excellent tools, very well worth a look. If you wish, feel free to start a thread asking about them.

    I do not add a graphic header since I want the text at the top to be visible for the spiders. But, it has been suggested to use a graphic as a background, that way you get the best of both worlds. Beautiful banner so your Thumblog stands out from the pack and text on top for us SEO types. Win, win...

    Well, I know on the last installment I had people read the whole thing, I wonder about this time???

    Nice writeup.

    I put more effort into doing less valuable shit, but probably won't try this.

    Anyhow who does, be sure to post how it works for you.
