Advertising Phone Sex In Free Directories & Top Sites

There are a number of phone sex directories, including those that offer free phone sex listings, complete with buttons that show if you, the PSO, are available or not (these are typically linked to specific phone sex platforms, so look closely!). While phone sex directories differ from phone sex top sites (which rank their listings by “votes” or clicks in), both usually offer a free link or free listing option — free as in no monetary fee. But you are charged something…

You are required to provide a reciprocal link from your site back to the directory or top site.

If you don’t have a website of your own, this obviously is not an option. (And yet another reason to reconsider how wise it is not to have your own PSO website or blog!) But even PSOs with sites may not find the reciprocal link a “free” way to advertise or promote their phone sex business.

PSOs who use the most popular phone sex platform sites must keep in mind the terms of service of their business partners who may not allow such things. For example, you may not be allowed to link from the platform site to your blog if it contains links to any other phone sex providers. (You still can link to your profile and listings from your blog; just not from the platform site to your site/blog.) That’s a fair enough rule as you’d literally be leading customers to other companies; that’s called “leaking.”

In such cases, you’d need to decide if the link to your own site or blog in your phone sex operator profile and/or phone sex listing(s) is key to converting those browsing into callers, or if you’re site is best used only to pull potential callers to your profile and/or listing pages.

If you do decide to only link to your phone sex listings on platform sites (and not from the platform site), or if you are a completely independent PSO or otherwise have no such restrictions, you still need to decide if trading links with phone sex directories and top sites is a fair trade.

Not only are the links out/away from your website leaks of your own traffic and a potential loss of customers who opt to check out the competition, but the links you give also add up in another way.

Every link to that site — and everyone listed in the directory or top list must link to it — increases the PageRank (PR) and SEO of that directory or top site. It increases the rank of the main ULR, and that is why their main page is littered with ads and affiliate links. That’s how those sites make their money. They make their money off you, the traffic you send them and “weight” of the link you give them — all for the “free” ad.

(Don’t kid yourselves into thinking that the link back from those sites helps your PageRank or  SEO either; Google and other search engines don’t count links from those directories and top sites as being as “good” as links from other sites.)

In other words, the directories and top sites are banking on your desire for “free advertising” to give them direct traffic from your site and indirect traffic from the increase in PageRank and SEO your site’s links brings.  This isn’t horrible — but the directory or top site’s primary goal is not to send you callers or even potential callers.

So just how good is that free ad now?
