An interesting new concept is working its way through the adult industry these days, based on an evolution of the ever-popular Thumbnail Gallery Post site. TGPs, the acronym that Thumbnail Gallery Posts are commonly known by, have undergone a series of evolutions since first being introduced on the Internet. The common implementation of the TGP site is a front-end main page containing a series of thumbnails that link out to a series of galleries providing surfers with free images. Included with the out-linked galleries is an upsell link to the sponsor's tour section. The premise, of course, is that if the visitor finds the images to his taste, he will click the tour link giving the sponsor an opportunity for a sale and the TGP operator an opportunity for a commission for that sale.
The most common complaint by TGP operators is that surfers have become accustomed to sponsors' links to tour pages, presuming the tours are just advertisements and there is no more free stuff to be seen. As a result, tour clicks have become fewer and fewer with surfers intent on finding more free porn. "It's impossible to make a sale if you can't get the customer to the store," complains Miles Jefferies, who closed his TGP sites last year in favor of better turnover rates in other pursuits.

I think I'd have to agree, TGP/MGP are so popular, consider this: French Cum a TGP/Sponsor link farm, gets 60K hits a day for the keyword "free galleries" on Google. People are looking for FREE porn, and don't expect to pay for it. CTR and sales on galleries are supposed to be about what... 0.5% and thats on a good day?

It's funny watching the old webmasters go on and on about the good old days - those days are gone - gotta find a new way to peddle our porn Smile I'm thinking that maybe the best way to go is to link something on your TGP that isn't porn, something that is completely different than what your offering, might see sone decent revenue streams from that....
