I'm putting this back up for sale as the last two buyers backed out on me and I ended up missing the deadline for buying my laptop. This time I've put screenshots of stats and Google income into a nice zip package for you. I had some server problems so stats from around the 18th are a little low. If someone can let me know how to give public access to Urchin that would be great.
Income: I usually sell off the paying members that sign up but currently there is 1 paying $10 a month. I was using Google for income and was getting $250-$400/mo. I switched over to showing my own ads in April to promote my other sites.
Users: The site has 9,562 active users as of right now, it usually gains around 30 new sign-ups a day.
Script: The script has been modified for high traffic, stock script modifies images as they're viewed for the branding. It's been modified to make a cached version when the pictures are uploaded so it is much less resource intensive. It's also been modified to reduce hotlinking, it gives the user a page to give to friends with ads on them. This cut down traffic quite a bit but raised ad-views. You can switch it back to the other one no problem though (is.php) where it links to the picture directly. All pictures are branded with the text you see at the bottom.
The script itself is worth $295 from ktools.net .
Resources: It uses around 36 gigs of diskspace. Bandwidth is around 200-300 Gig a month. Right now it is the only site on a 2.4 Ghz Celeron with 1 Gig of Memory, average load is .35. If you switch back to allowing hotlinking more freely and do not monitor the site it will average around 600-800 Gigs of bandwidth a month and get around 150k visitors a day(Jan stats).
I'd like to get offers over $2,000 ... I'd prefer Wire Transfer\Check\Money Order. I'd rather not use Paypal because of the fees and the trouble that everyone seems to have with them. I do not guarantee income in anyway as Google's keywords change constantly along with their policies. I will do escrow if buyer pays the fees, I am not trying to rip anyone off. If anyone cares about Alexa Rank it is currently 43,995 but changes constantly.
AND PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME UNLESS YOU'RE SERIOUS.
Originally posted by jdhf How I monitor is the use of traffic on new accounts, or in general. I do not monitor the demo account at all. People don't have to register to upload to it so as you see it gets abused quite often
Ok, I`m still interested in my original questions answers.
1. Do you know how much porn is hosted on "registered" accounts?
1a. Do you ALLOW adult material to be hosted?
2. Is there a way to monitor images uploaded (such as new ones per-day) or do you not care and jsut make sure bandwidth is OK ?
I`m interested but if it's mostly adult material or unknown it really wont allow many useful ads to be placed... Maybe this is why you stopped showing AdSense? Did you get kicked out ?
Please don't speculate, I stopped showing Google adsense because I wanted to advertise my other projects... I will happily take a screen shot of my account getting no hits right now if that would make you happy.
I do not screen every account because this would take WAY too long so I don't have any exact percentages for you on how much is porn or not. It gets 30+ signups per day and this would take way too long. You can go into anyone's account you wish to monitor them if you really want to.
If you have the time, sort by date and go down the newest list into each account and view their pictures. We do have a lot of people using it for eBay auctions. I pretty much just watch the bandwidth as this is normally a sign of people showing porn.
