    I think there is absolutely a market. There is a large number of adult websites, and they are generally profitable so the owners have no qualms in shelling out $$$ for listings.

    I'd be more interested in how you go about editing a directory where all the content is "questionable".

    There *could* be an issue with paypal. I know they have a problem with gambling/casino type sites, which could fall under the bracket of adult too...

    I think it is a good idea. I warn you to be very careful and I would urge you to constantly monitor your directory. You don't want to accidentally get tangled into something illegal. You will have to check the links every so often to verify that you are not getting involved in soliciting an illegal website. I also second the point made by dinesh1232. You should make it very clear that your website is for adults only. Please do not expose underage people to things they are not ready to digest. Make it obvious that if they proceed and are not of the appropriate age, that they are breaking the law. Good luck mate.

    a good quality adult directory is always in great demand. i have an adult directory myself but the kind of sites usually i get submitted there, i dont feel too motivated to even moderate the submissions anymore. currently there are 9200+ submissions pending with most being 100% affiliate sites with no content of their own. lot of them are free hosted sites as well. since i started out accepting quality submission, soon it came to a point where it was taking a good deal of time so i stopped moderating. the directory is still free but i;m thinking of cleaning it up and reject all junk submission and start offering sponsored listings. i get 20-30 submissions a day (not sure how many of them are done by professional submitters or done by tools) so i might be able to make a few dollars from there.

    I think what you just wrote makes a lot of sense. Offering a sponsored listing, or requiring even a small fee, will keep the spam away or at least compensate you for the time and effort you put into moderating your directory. You might also try informing people on the submission page that you do not allow free hosted sites. It probably won't help, but it would be easy to do and might save you time in the future. As for filtering professional submissions from submissions done by tools, you could simply add a captcha. When choosing a captcha, the more variables (such as font, angle, and color) the better. A lot of captcha programs have already been cracked by neural networks.

    captcha is there but that doesn't stop spam. people using tools along with captcha programs or captcha services can crack the captcha. i can either use math or similar question and rename my submit page to something else than submit.php. scrapers won't find it this way and tools can't submit to that page as they would look for default phpld submit page. i will get this taken care of when i have some time

    I have seen the "What is 2+2" question and "What are the last four letters of x" human identifiers before. I always thought these were a joke. Are you saying that these are an effective way of stopping spam? I am rather curious, as I just started a forum and I would like to avoid spam on the registration page. Even if you could tell me which types of captchas did not work for you in the past, you would be saving me a lot of time. I have never had a website that received 1000 visitors per day, so in the past I have used simple captcha services which seemed to be effective.

    I don't know about cache but the strange thing is I can not see the impressions in Google website for couple of days back and people do come from google which I have seen in Google Analytics, so something is going on with Google.

    I have a dofollow adult directory. http://sexdir.org
    • Every submission are reviewed
    • I delete from time to time spammy entries
    • The website passes pagerank to pages
    • I allow people to open accounts to modify their listing
    • No site-wide links. You will get only one link from my directory in webmaster tool
    • I added Clean Dofollow link
    • Reciprocal needed with my own websites only. None are spammy.
    • Code of conduct for now and the future in the context of google webmaster guidelines

    What are typical price ranges for listings in paid adult directories? are they generally higher or lower than directory industry averages?

    @Nima: It depends on the traffic that directory can drive in. If it's only a couple of months old, I would recommend $1.95 to $8.95 for starters. So many owners go in and ask for a lot, with no traffic at all and end up with bad reviews of the over priced listing requirements.

    Start your directory correctly. Keep it offline until you have it well developed and can start right off with a valued service you can advertise. Don't follow all the fools and open with an empty directory of no real value to anybody.
