Directories, Listings & Other Resources for those who have a Sex Or Adult Blog
This Post is a work In Progress, One that I will update regularly with new directories and resources as I discover them. I just thought it may be helpful for other bloggers to share some of the resources, programs and other ‘stuff’ I use to create my blog.
Other Cool & Useful Resources For Bloggers

The Big Search Engines
If you want to get seen you need to get your site name out there, Here’s the Links to use to add your site or blog to the big boys of Search. Don’t forget to also add your tumblr stream or other accounts & online presences you have whilst you’re there..
Google – Submit URL to Google ** You can also submit your RSS feed &/or your XML sitemap via Google’s webmaster tools
DMOZ.org – the directory behind Google
Yahoo.com – requires a yahoo account to suggest a site – the ‘Suggest a Site‘ link is right at the bottom of the page
More search Engines you can submit your site or Blog to can be found on this site ->BBLMedia
Getting Your Blog Listed in relative Blog directories will both Increase traffic to your site and help increase your Page Rank, all of which in turn helps make your site more successful and if you are looking to get paid advertising it can assist you to earn more per advertisement.
If, like me, you also have a tumblr account, remember to list that as a separate blog, especially if it also contains sexually related content.
Often In order to get listed in a directory you need to provide them with a reciprocal link, all sites that require a link back are Marked with an Asterix *, Whilst those that have sent me a lot of Traffic & I think are most Useful I’ve marked with a star.★, more stars for those who bring in more traffic.
★★Adult Blog Hub – Requires the Reciprocal Link – But I highly recommend submitting your blog or site here as it is a great high quality directory
★★Australian Blogs – Sex Category
*AdultBlogster – You can get a Permanent Icon on Adult Blogster by submitting a photo of you with “AdultBlogster” written on your ass, breasts, or penis in lipstick, chocolate … whatever. No face or identifying marks please” – Hmm I take that as a challenge 😛
Weblogs.com – Also a great Pinging site
|Sex Blog News – You can submit your site or feed, No Recipricol Link Is required, However I’m kind of Proud to have been featured by them as they aren’t Just Porn Pushing With their directory.|
*Adult Blogs Index*Adult Blog Spider*adultwebmasters.org/
|Reciprical Linking sex blog directories Also Be sure to check out the Blog Tools for more blog directories, search engines & helpful tools|
More Coverage for your Reviews and Sex Related Posts
Pleasurists: Every time I publish a Review I always submit it to Pleasurists. For those who haven’t come across pleasurists yet, it is a weekly round-up of the latest sex toy and adult product reviews as well as the current give-aways. It costs nothing to submit your review or give away post to pleasurists, all you have to do is post the issue your links are appearing in on your blog. It is a great way to share your reviews with a wider audience as well as gaining the all important in-bound links as well as the traffic that comes via these links.
E-Lust: E-Lust is similar to Pleasurists in the fact that it is a round-up of posts, but instead of sex toy reviews E-Lust is a round up of the latest sexually fuelled posts written by sex bloggers over the previous month. Just like Pleasurists you will need to post the edition of E-Lust you are featured in on your blog, but it is the perfect way to build links and gain new readers whilst participating in the sex blogging community.
Other Possible Places to be Listed & Communities to Join etc
I haven’t fully looked into or checked out all of these sites, but they are in my bookmarks and could be of use to you. For both getting linked to & finding other resources & blogs etc.
Your Site’s Visability
So the Whole Purpose of Adding your site to directories and getting people to link to you is to get your site or blog seen. How do you know if it is being seen? You can check lots of different factors such as the number of pages that link to your site on google or yahoo, or what your google Pagerank is, or Alexa Rating etc.
Here’s some of those type of resources I’m using;
Websitegrader.com – This is where I got my Grade of ’91’ from that appears in my sidebar – 91 meaning that Screaming-Violet.com is better than 91% of other websites according to their Analysis
You can find out The Alexa Ranking of your website by visiting Alexa.com and entering your websites URL. Every website has an Alexa Ranking and it doesn’t cost anything to find out yours. You may also find my guide to Improving your Alexa Ranking helpful.
