One week ago a friend hit me up on instant messanger. I have known this guy for a long long time. We used to make a lot of money together from porn affiliates while in college. We were doing about 2000$ a month and thought we were rich… well we were compared to the rest of the students we lived with. Anyway This guy went on to start a adult empire that lasted 5 more years then he sold his company for 18 million dollars. I have talked to him a little bit since but not much. I thought he was a upstanding citizen like myself. Little did I know he still dabled in the dark arts of internet money making 😉

I talked to him this morning and got the A-OK to blog about our inital talk which happened 1 week ago. Bottom line is he is/was making 10k+ PER DAY on average from google base making fake profiles which link to adult affiliates.

So today when he gave me permission to post he also said that his earnings are down to 3-4k/day for the last couple days. He said google wiped about 8,000 of his fake profiles on base.google.com 2 days ago and now he is having to mask the links with redirects since google has filtered out all the direct lnks. (Silly pornographers…. he should have been masking his links to start =p) He said he expects the income to come back a little bit once he gets more profiles in.

Anyway I found it interesting!

  1. I’m surprised to see those dumb people on Digg consider this spam. I wish I had this type of foresight. Good lord. Great post shoe.

  2. hopefully this helps google clean the porn **** off google base and stop horny/greedy mother****ers from ****flooding good services

  3. Interesting, but sketchy. Good to know though. The margins on those adultfriendfinder sites must be insane.

  4. Steve, you don’t get how this makes money? People click on what they think is a girl’s profile and find some affiliate link …. and being tempted already, they click and pay. What is so hard to understand about this? Did you think all those “I’m one of the hottest chicks on earth willing to get boned by any old internet geek” are real? :p

  5. I’ve tested the waters with Google base but didn’t notice any traffic so I haven’t gone any further. It will be interesting to see if it just becomes a big spam whole or actually develops into something people really use.

  7. Making money from Google Base

    Well, as I try to resolve my domain naming problems with Google, I thought readers might find Shoemoney’s posting $10,000 a day from Google Base very interesting. It’s funny how people can always find tricks and techniques to milk a new system for mo…

  8. Great story. That’s awesome, so many ways to make money online.
    I think the competition will soon become higher and it will be more difficult, but people will always be making tons of money on p0rn lol

  9. Making Money from Google Base, the Illegal Way

    By creating fake profiles which link to adult affiliates in Google Base can earn USD$10,000 per day, do you believe it? Shoemoney’s friend did it.

  10. When I saw this post I had to comment just to say that when you discover a new and lucrative traffic source such as this, you have to be downright stupid to send directly to the sponsor you are promoting. Mask the damn referer… it only takes 2 f***ing seconds…

  11. For those of you who wants to try it. There’s no point. Google bans your account and your profile is deleted. If you were in the game from the beginning it would have worked. Why do you think the guy let Shoemoney post about it anyways? Because it doesn’t work anymore.

  15. woow amazing!

    Can someone let us know what other backdoor method beside this to rake in some profits? thanks in advance

  16. it’s not like adult spam was not believed to be a profitable business before. what makes this “bigger” than usual is that your friend did this to Google by beating them with their own tool.

  18. Hey Shoe, Your Friend Is Not The Only One Making A Fortune On Google Base. Go There And Type In Books, Products ,etc. What Pops Up? Thousands Of Affiliate Links To Amazon, shop.com, etc. You Should Look At books And There Are Hundreds If Not Thousands Listed And Probable From The Same Guy… (Because He’s User I.D. Is The Same On Each Link) and the list go’s on! What Might You Think Am I Doing With Google Base….Can’t Say. But It’s Not Porno!
    Google Base Could Be In Trouble. Why? It’s All F***IN SPAM!

  19. Any Arbitrage Opportunities in Google Base?…

    So Google is planning on allowing people to buy items on Google Base using their Google Accounts to manage payments. I wonder if this opens up any oppprtunities similar to when Shoemoney’s friend made 315k in about a month sticking Adult Friend Finder…

  20. He made all those profiles to point to an affiliate site to make somone else rich. He should of pointed it to his own dating site. Or setup a dating site if he started hiring people.

  21. IrishWonder’s SEO Consulting Blog » Blog Archive » Weekend Lite: Where Will All the SEOs Go Next? says:

    […] Here are a few examples where we made to recently: – Google Base – but porn marketers got there before SEOs – MySpace (also here) – but judging by the amount and topics of spam that already exists there, email spammers made it first to there – Digg – well I can’t really think of who made it there first but it’s an established community that’s been there for like 5 years already, judging by the domain registration date – LinkedIn (also here) – this is almost becoming mainstream now, Matt Cutts has been hanging out in LinkedIn for a while now. […]

  22. this is possible but i think not only on google base…way back in college i also do this adult site affiliate but i never make big money like that.. all you need is good resources to make this kind money…

  23. Doesn’t anyone stop to ask why a guy worth $18 Million dollars would be posting these profiles in the first place?

    I know people in the adult industry worth that much, they don’t work.
    They hire people to do it for them, and they spend their time partying and living the good life.

    This guy says he “had” to start hiring people…

    …because we all know, when your only worth $18 Million Dollars,
    the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning is post fake profiles to the dating sites in hopes of making an affiliates cut of the action. ?!?!?!?!?

    Sounds like blog-bull to me…
    someone’s just trying to BOOST their search engines rankings with nonsense content.

  24. there is always another way and another angle – you just have to dig it up and risk some

  25. So, wheres the ebook – How to make Money on Google Base – can’t be far away from this blog 🙂

    Is he making ANY money at all now or did it die off for him?

  28. Heh…
    Thats incredible. That’s the kind of money i want to make.
    Great post Shoe!

  29. […] The affiliate programs brought me the best results, while I was reading another one of my favorite boards I came across this article (link) where some one was using a combination of Adult Friend Finder and Google Base. I though this one was by far the most ingenious ideas. Now that it’s public I’m sure that the big G will find a way to shut it down but none the less it was a great idea. […]
