Search.XXX Ad Program Launches March 31, Current Holders Get Credit

The Search.XXX Ad Program is scheduled to launch by March 31, 2013.

Search.XXX launched last year as a search engine for .XXX sites but it looks like ICM, company that is the registry of .XXX, is gearing up to sell ads on its network.

According to an email we got today, current .XXX domain holders are going to get credit towards the program.

The credit seems to be based on the number of .XXX domain names you have registered.

This is from the Search.XXX site:

If you registered or renewed any .XXX domain name prior to Jan. 31, 2013, you were eligible for a $75 promotional credit per domain to apply towards advertisements through the Search.xxx Ad Program.*

You create your ads

Once launched, the ad platform will allow you to create ads and choose keywords related to your business.

Your ads appear on Search.xxx

When people search on Search.xxx using one of your keywords, your ad may appear next to or above the search results. That’s direct advertising to an audience that’s already interested in you.

We bring traffic to You

Search.xxx drives the traffic to you. When someone clicks on your ad, they land directly on your website.””

“We will notify you once the Ad Program is available and provide instructions on how to use use your credits”.

“If you have any questions regarding Search.xxx or the Ad Program, please review or FAQ at http://icm.xxx/support/.

    That’s a really good idea–those .xxx sites could use all the help they can get. i saw today that gay.xxx (the domain that sold for half of a million dollars) has an Alexa ranking of one million. Doesn’t get much worse than that.

    @Alan I am one of ICM’s biggest critics, but I have to disagree with you. Registrants are finally getting something for their money. Granted, it’s not ideal. Search.xxx has an Alexa ranking of 30,000 and most of the traffic is junk traffic that’s not bringing anyone any sales. So, clearly, in order for this to be effective, ICM has to get legitimate traffic to the search engine. But if they do, if ICM were actually to promote the search engine, there will be programs for surfers to find.
