Adult Traffic - Why plugs are rejected
Published: Monday 5th of September 2011 01:16:41 AM
Creating a good thumbnail that really stands out and makes a user want to click can be challenging. In this post we will show you how to create a thumbnail for plugs or widgets that will get the clicks you want, increasing the CTR (click through ratio).
First, let's start with what is NOT allowed by our adult traffic trading system.
If you do any of the following things, your thumbnail will be REJECTED!
-Watermarks on the image
-Borders on the image
-Underage girls in the image
-Linking to your homepage
-Linking to a page with little or no actual content
-Linking to a video page and the video does not work
-Having more than 3 popups on your website
-Using a fake thumbnail
It might seem like a bit much, but trust us, if you follow these rules your plug will be approved. We have these rules for a reason, and that reason is quality. Plugrush is about quality adult traffic .
Let's go over some of these points in more detail below:
In the above image, a red arrow is drawn pointing to a watermark. This is bad for several reasons. First, it's not allowed by Plugrush, plain and simple. We do not allow watermarks in thumbnails. Second, it's free advertisement for websites, and more than likely, the website the watermark shows doesn't belong to you. This is bad all around.
As you can clearly see, the red arrows point to borders. These borders happen to be on the top and the bottom, but they could also appear on the left and right. Again, this isn't allowed by Plugrush and for good reasons. First, you want to use all of the area you can to promote your image so that it gets clicked. Having borders on an image will just make it look smaller, and sometimes making the image look distorted.
If you upload an image that is smaller than 160x120, it will become distorted just like in the above images. The first image is what a webmaster uploaded as his thumbnail. The second image is what it looks like after plugrush has enlarged it. This can't be stressed enough, the larger thumbnail you use, the better the resolution and quality will be.
Can you tell what is going on in the above thumbnail? Neither can we, and we are experts at this. If you want your thumbnail approved, then you have to show in the thumbnail very clearly what the user can expect to see when he clicks it. The above image has everything wrong, absolutlely the worst thumbnail you could submit. It has borders, a watermark, bad resolution and you can't even tell what it is.
Look at that big juicy ass. Looks great, right? Wrong. Let us explain why. Let's pretend you are a normal visitor on a website and you see this image in a widget. You click it, and it goes to a webpage with a video of two amateur people having sex, and has absolutely nothing to do with the image they clicked, shown above. This is bad for several reasons. First off, other webmasters are using real images that actually have to do with what is on their website landing page (images or video). Second, you are tricking the user into thinking they will see something that they will not. This is bad because the user will be angry they aren't seeing what they wanted to by clicking the thumbnail, and more than likely they will just exit your website, which will make it seem like we are sending you bad traffic when in fact it's your own fault for tricking them.
We DO NOT tolerate this. You know exactly what we are talking about. Girls that look underage in images. This one is self explanatory. Now, we do understand that there really are pornstars out there that do look extremely young, and if you can show us who they are and that they are of age, then this will be allowed. But under no circumstance will we approve an image like this if it looks even remotely close to an under age person. This is something we take extremely seriously.
We know this seems like a lot to take in, but as long as you follow these rules, your adult traffic will increase substantially using Plugrush .
