How Many Here Actually Use The Pnet Service Provider Database?

And how regularly do you check it? I was considering running a deluxe ad but just wondering if it was worth paying £30 a month for. Apologies if this has been discussed before but I did try the search function and couldn't find any topics on this specific directory. Thanks.

I used to use it quite a bit.. Of late it as become to 'Londoncentric' for me. However I do use it in conjunction with FRs when looking at new towns I'm visiting or haven't been to in some time.

I tried it a few years ago - but as hardly anyone advertises there I quit.

All the people that said no are about to be banned - how's Galahad supposed to pay the hosting on this site if its users don't even support the directory?

I guess because for you guys the search is free, for us girls we still pay to actually be on there, thats Im guessing how. Personally Im going to be putting an advert on my twitter and my website once the overhaul is completed to tell all my followers that its new and improved. If all the other girls and punters on here do the same it may attract some new users. Every little helps right. If you dont back it then you cant moan about it x

Funny that the guys so far have said they dont use it. When we used to put the announcements out that the advent girl offer was starting at christmas the phones started ringing so SOMEONE uses them. Only a small percentage of clicks came from twitter so it couldnt have all been from there x

I get decent traffic from the PN SP data base - absolutely worth paying for.

Do you advertise anywhere else? If so, how do you know your traffic comes from the SPD and not somewhere else?

PN SPD,  not what it use to be.  The visitors from it started to decline rapidly about 5-6 years ago, when Adultwork started to become a major player in the escort industry.

 

I remember at the past years (around 2005/2006) I use to had 100+ visitors daily from SPD. Now its about 12, maximum 20. Similar stats if you put an ad on the Announcement board. At the first day of an ad its use to be up to 250 visitors. Now its hardly 30. I would estimate its over 85% drop.

 

People hardly browse it anymore, as no need for it, when they having a massive portal such as Adultwork at theirs fingertips.

 

I am still advertise there, as with a bit of luck some profit can be made even for somebody who works part time. As far as I know I gained one client from it during last 9 months. And even then it was by the pure luck and even much more fortunate that I've end up to see him another 3 times so far.  If I have not met him, the £135 which I paid for PN advertisement will be wasted.  

 

The present charge for advertising does not represent VFM anymore. (IMHO). Or maybe it was to low originally. Following the stats above it should be reduced from £15 per month to £2.50.  Not of course anybody in the right mind (and sir G certainly is) is going to do it. :-P

I've used the reviews quite a lot and I find them much better than Adultwork'. I treat the reviews of SPs who are members of this forum, with more caution but on balance I think Galahad has got the review system right and Adultwork wrong. The Adultwork feedback and field report system are too much in favour of the WG.

 

As for the SPD, I've never used it. Why? There's no facility to search on rate and time duration, so it's of no use to me. This is where I believe Punternet has fallen behind Adultwork. If Galahad finds a way to incorporate that.........

I have awstats log file analyzer (free) counting the hits from search engines, referrals from listings sites, key word searches etc. Your web master/mistress will set it up for you. It's worth doing - you can evaluate which listings work for you, and which need a bit of fine tuning. And yes, I advertise in heaps of other places, both free and paid for. I also have reciprocal links to some friends' websites, so I benefit from some of their traffic, and they do of mine.

 

There are other bits of kit that allow you to analyse where your clients are finding you, like Google analytics, but Google is a bit less useful, at least the free version. Oddly, it won't tell you what your most successful key word is, maybe in order to encourage you to pay for an improved version, I don't know..

 

There is a useful thread on SAAFE on the subject of where to advertise. Hope this helps.
