I've been running an adult website for a while now and attempting to monetize the site by being a publisher for various adult ad networks. The goal is to at least break even on hosting/CMS fees.
That being said, the three adult ad networks I've tried have had disappointing returns. My site receives about 400,000 monthly views. The first network paid $0.77 for the month, the second has paid $24 over three months, and the last one has paid $2 for the month.
Is adult ad revenue really this…
