AdultVest -- investment community for adult industry
Figures this group, called AdultVest
, would be based in Southern California
. Sand Hill Road, the main drag here in Silicon Valley for venture capital firms, is a bit too chaste for this sort of thing.
As Jeff says, the statistic, if it is accurate, that 25% of all searches are for porn, is staggering.
Accounting for approximately 25% of all search engine requests, on a planet that has a population exceeding 6 billion people, the adult industry clearly has a global demand. You would think that there would be a large population of people who are begging to invest in the companies that create some of their favorite adult products, services, and content. However, there has never been resource available to the investment community that would enable investors to look at adult industry investment deals; and because approximately 98% of the estimated $57 Billion Dollar Adult Industry consists of privately held companies, there is no easy way for investors to even find these companies. That is where AdultVest.com comes in‰¥Ï

Sounds like we're in the wrong business! I was excited to read about how Trulia and IGenHome could change the face of Real Estate searching however as an industry I don't think that we'll ever account for %25 percent of all searches. Staggering!
Everyone uses craigslist for hooking up..
The big problem is its tough to monetize this traffic as almost 99% of the adult searchers are looking for free content and its almost impossible to convince them to open their wallet...
This is the reason the conversion ratios of most adult sites (guess its around 0.001%) are well bellow that of mainstreem ecommerce sites (around 1%)
