I want to do it the right way, so am reaching out to you Matt for some advice. I could do a hoax press release about some gossipy fake story - hey include a porn star and a search industry leader (Danny smart move introducing me to your wife now I can’t use you) and I will get a lot of links.

I like this one. "Jill Whallen: Come to think of it, it’s just not fair that Google doesn’t want to count my link farm links as links. Google sucks and so does Matt Cutts."Sorry Jill  :-)

What’s really funny is that someone just asked in PRO Q+A today about how to get links to adult sites and we had tons of ideas. However, have to say that this post is really a pretty interesting subject and it does call attention to industries where it’s tough to link build naturally and tough (or maybe distasteful) to find the right link partners.Have to say I’m not totally sure if the title is what I would have used, but hey, it’s Frank, right? :)

Sometimes the title is all you have to work with... and I have had Chris Rocks voice in my head ever since I took the job....

The problem is that if Matt responds, they EVERYBODY will post (and social bookmark) questions to Matt.  He won’t be able to spend time taking over the world :-)

Okay never intended to rank for Matt and lap dances... have to laugh at that one... and I do see that Matt realistically can’t answer this one... and it is a little sensational - but no hoax and accurate story that could use some input.Maybe I should have just emailled him and asked a few questions.

I just have to wonder why this page: http://www.articlesnatch.com/blog/2008/05/28/matt-cutts-can-you-help-a-brother-get-a-lap-dance/ ranks so high in the SERP’s for the Matt Cutts Lap Dance query

Errm. I posted this over there, but I thought I’d post it over here too. Maybe it can add something to the conversation.Ok. So I’m about as not Matt Cutts[who this question was inteded for] as you can get. But I thought about this article a bit, and thought I’d chime in with what I’d do if I had a whitehat firmly grafted to my forehead.First of all, embrace porn 2.0. Redtube, youporn, pornotube, megarotic, these sites get incredible traffic. Watermark videos and upload them. Beyond that, many give a backlink for it. Also many sites embed these videos, and will give a backlink that way. And even if they don’t, they’ll drive link juice back to your page ON those porn2.0 sites, and from there into your site.After that, expand out into sites like freeones.com and porneskimo.com that list and link to free movie/picture previews. All these should obviously be hosted on your primary domain, and passing juice back to the main domain.Then go after the sites like rabbitsreviews.com that are respected and offer reviews of the various pay porn sites out there. The worst most will ask for is a reciprocal link which shouldn’t be a problem considering it’s not an excessive amount.Alright. So after that, it’s all about the blogging. I would launch 2 separate blogs. 1 that posts previews of videos and whatnot, and can be used to submit trackbacks to other porn blogs that have posted videos of the same pornstar that’s in the video you’re posting about. People DO actually subscribe to these blogs as well.The second blog would be one used primarily for link bait. It may be a good idea to have this one on a separate domain without the same kind of pornographic content as the real one to make it more digg/reddit/whatever friendly.In addition, there’s many pligg(digg clone) installations out there for adult videos. ("powered by pligg" porn movie returns almost 23,000 results on Google)At that point, launch an affiliate program. Host galleries for the affiliates on the base domain you’re using, and once again pass link juice back to the home page. To get around duplicate content issues, have it drop a cookie upon entering the affiliate gallery, then do a 302 redirect to the same page, but without the affiliate ID present. Have a different description of the video for each gallery. Right there, you’ll have a bunch of affiliates linking into your site, and all the juice passing properly with no duplicate content issues. Oh yeah, and host the videos themselves on a separate server to make sure you don’t slow down your main one.There. The whitehat porno empire. Erm. I think it’s whitehat.EDIT: The affiliate program might get sketchy, since you’d technically be responsible for the actions of your affiliates when promoting THEIR pages I suppose.

Matt actually did give his answer...no mention of a lap dance, though: http://blog.searchenginewatch.com/blog/080528-153436#comments"Hey Frank, I wouldn’t put on blinders thinking about only directories. Some suggestions for white-hat ways to gather links in the porn space? I’d think about people like Luke Ford, Violet Blue, Tony Comstock, etc. I would also go meta and talk about the porn industry a little bit. Do a little original research. Where does the money in the porn industry go to? How much is affiliate, what % of stuff is PPI, TGP, MGP, etc. What are 15 facts about the porn industry that people didn’t know before?"
