Infographic: Porn vs The Internet [NSFW]

In the early 2000′s, the media made a meal out of how the pornography industry had been taken to a new level in terms of reach, revenue and types of “entertainment”, thanks to the advent of the world wide web. In fact internet marketers owe the porn industry for being first to successfully adopt now-everyday technologies such as geo-location, videostreaming and e-commerce to name a few.

So what does the online porn business look like today, and how much does it impact mainstream search marketing? Let’s take a look at the most recent studies and stats to-date.

  1. A very nice post. It is very surprising that the Porn industry has so much share on the internet. It is the most competitive in terms of online marketing.

    1. Hi Akash. Porn is one of the most competitive keywords and yet the opinion is that very few people are making money anymore in the industry. Is this thanks to more and more people figuring out how to search and get it for free?

  2. It’s funny that no one wants to believe me when I say the porn industry revolutionized the internet. Necessity may be the mother of invention, but lust is the mother of the internet. Thanks for the entertaining, yet informative post.

      1. It goes back further than that. The Gutenberg BIble, printed in 1454, was the first book printed with a movable type printing press. But it wasn’t a hugely profitable item. The owners of the press wanted to recover their investment in the press. So the second item printed was what we would consider soft core porn.

  3. Well it true that whatever way the porn industry goes the media goes. Look at the competing blue ray format battle a few years back. The consumer industry went the same way porn did.

  4. Maybe relatively “very few people are making money” compared to earlier, but there are still many billions coming in from porn. I bet it is still more than any other industry on the net, but it was more than all other industries on the net COMBINED just a few years back, so….

  5. Ok I don’t think live jasmin should count because there are a ton of sites like < that have it as a pop up I’ve visited it many times but never by choice.
