      Not sure if your entry was tongue-in-cheek so I deleted my original post. I did not intend to use this forum to self promote my hubs and did not provide a link. If you look at my previous forum posts I've never self promoted unless I was allowed to...

      Nothing Major - I just posted a question about how I am getting more traffic to a hub - the increased traffic isn't down to content but down to sexiness - I thought it was ironic.

      I inadvertantly therefore was self promoting although I didn't link to the sites - I therefore deleted the original post....

    Hey SimeyC, I make 90% of my revenue from my photo hubs of celebrities and female models. wink

    Most of my traffic is on those. I average on some as high as 500 views per day(including slide-show views).

    I just crossed 100,000 hub views, however, I also passed 120,000 slide-show views also. smile

    So, yes- SEX SELLS! lol lol
