Camming Site / Clip Site Traffic Report: November 2017
We’re reviving the monthly traffic benchmarking! This is something that Webcam Startup used to do back in 2016 and was discontinued due to taking waaaaay too long to do. We’ve figured a way how to streamline the whole process. There won’t be as much analysis into the traffic of each network (we used to go way in-depth, it’d take days to do!). However, the streamlined approach will make it easier to contrast the various networks. Here’s how all the sites compare.
Here’s a breakdown of the various metrics we’re benchmarking, and why these metrics are relevant.
Alexa (Lower Number Better) – One of the most popular traffic benchmarking services. Much criticized for it’s lack of data sources, but still a trusted metric.
SimilarWeb (Lower Number Better) – More trusted than Alexa by a lot of webmasters, as it uses more data sources. Also provides a bunch of other traffic source metrics, such as traffic types and referring domains.
Country – The country that provides the most traffic to the site. SimilarWeb is used for this, although Alexa and SimilarWeb almost always agree.
Whitelabel (Cams Only) – Many of the camming sites offer whitelabels to webmasters. These are rebranded versions of the sites. These whitelabeled versions provide traffic and sales, but since it’s on a different domain, the web metrics do not reflect the traffic from the whitelabeled sites. Therefore, the networks with whitelabels have a lot more traffic than what’s indicated here.
MOZ DA (Higher Number Better): This is an SEO metric. Google PR and search engineers has vouched for the metrics MOZ uses to establish their Domain Authorty (DA). The reason this is relevant is a performer’s profile is more likely to be discovered via search if the site has a great DA. Organic discovery on one site or another could ultimately lead to more sales on that network. It also is something that helps a network grow it’s customer-base in general.
Camming Sites With The Most Traffic
BongaCams – SimilarWeb is showing Russia and Alexa is showing Czech Republica for BongaCams top country. Went with Russia, as BongaCams has made several acquisitions of Russian camming sites, which are now BongaCams whitelabels. One includes Russcams, which used to be the largest Russian camming site. Therefore, you can’t really make the argument that BongaCams isn’t the top Russian camming site. It’s fair to speculate is one of the top ones in all the Eastern European countries where Russian as a primary / secondary language.
SkyPrivate – SkyPrivate is a little bit of a different beast than the other camming sites, but there’s a directory, so traffic is still relevant.
MyFetishLive – Not enough data for SimilarWeb to give a country rank, so going off Alexa.
Stripchat – SimilarWeb said Turkey and Alexa said USA. Turkey and USA were within 1% on SimilarWeb and there was no other country information outside of USA on Alexa.
RivCams – SimilarWebs is showing China as the main country (Alexa has no data). Being that it’s an Italian site, I’m willing to dispute this metric and believe it’s Italy.
FreeWebcams.com – Similar web listed Poland as the best country. Alexa listed USA.
Clip Sites With The Most Traffic
BentBox: Alexa claimed China as the best country. There’s been a weird trend in Chinese traffic. Outlier? Who knows.
