PornHub Insights 2019: Year In Review

Welcome to the new year and what better way to start than with PornHub Insights 2019? Each year statistics are released on what’s hot and poppin on the worlds largest tubesite, PornHub. This is their seventh year in review and as always I’m super excited to tackle these stats. What’s great about these annual releases is how closely they mirror trends seen on camsites. Each year I like to study the results for a few different reasons:

  1. To spot porn trends to help my own cammodel business.
  2. Find relevant keywords that I can use for seo.
  3. Using PornHub Insights can help determine where my marketing dollars are best spent.
  4. The Year In Review statistics can be used to see when are the best and worst times to live stream, plus release new content. 

In 2019 there were over 42 Billion visits to Pornhub with over 39 billion searches performed. And for that reason I believe their yearly insights to be a extremely valuable resource. Throughout this article I’m going to talk about a few key elements from the results and how to best use them to your advantage. First off I’m going to talk about relevant keywords and how to find them on PornHub Insights.

The Most Searched For Terms From PornHub Year In Review 2019 Are:

pornhub insights 2019

After looking over the most searched for terms from 2019, I noticed that not much has changed from the previous year. There are slight differences in how the terms are ranked in order of popularity and thankfully “Squirt” is about to slip right off the damn page. Thank God! I will be one happy cammer the day I never have to hear “Do u squirt,BB?”, ever again.

One of the more noticeable elements of the list that stood out for me was the high level of diversity sought by visitors. Eight out of the 20 terms on the list pertain to race and ethnicities that aren’t always spotlighted in the porn industry. Not surprisingly, “BBC” has gone up eleven spots to make it into the top 20 and the term “ebony” has maintained it’s popularity going up one spot from last year. “Latina” made it onto the list too. And it appears that many of PornHub’s visitors are very specific when it comes to Asian porn. “Japanese” is at the very top of the list and sprinkled throughout is “Korean, Chinese and Indian”. Search terms “Hentai & Anime” are even more proof that PornHub visitors had great interest in Asian cultures for the year 2019. 

Search Terms Are Keywords And Here Is How You Should Use Them:

These terms can also be used as keywords in search your cammodel blogs, clip site descriptions and when creating cammodel profiles on camsites. You can also use these keywords on social media platforms in the form of #Hashtags and even the metadata embedded in pictures from your smart phone.

  • Photo metadata is a set of data describing and providing information about rights and administration of an image. It allows information to be transported with an image file, in a way that can be understood by other software and human users.

I’m currently working on another article that gives more detail on Adult Marketing and SEO, and how we in this industry need to adapt in order to thrive. I’ll talk more about things like metadata and keyword placement more at that time. For now let’s talk a bit more about PornHub Insights specifically. 

The Searches That Defined 2019


pornhub year in review 2019

PornHub searches are influenced by mainstream media, pop culture, world wide events and whatever is trending on social media at the time. 2019 was the year the “True Believers” were determined to storm Area 51 with the hopes of releasing Aliens from outer space. There was so much hype surrounding this movement that people turned to every platform they could think of to entertain themselves with thoughts of intergalatic encounters. It just so happens that PornHub was one of those platforms causing “Alien” searches to spike. “Cosplay” is also on the list of 10 searches that defined 2019. If you’re into weird sex toys then you’re probably familiar with Bad Dragon and how useful this brand is when it comes to Alien Fetishes. So basically if you have an alien dong lying around, you may want to think of a few Cosplay ideas for creating new content. 

At the very top of the list of search terms that defined 2019, is “Amateur“. Three years ago PornHub created a Model Payment Program for Verified Amateurs. It’s grown quite a bit and is very poplular with cammodel performers and adult clipmakers who have decided to sell their content directly on PornHub. Now that performers are skipping over the middle man and distributing their own clips I believe this is one reason why Amateur shot up 108%.

For Marketing Purposes

Usually one of my favorite ways to use PornHub Insights is by seeing what trends are popping in the US from state to state. But unfortunately PH decided to only release that information regarding searches done by women from state to state. It’s not the end of the world because the information is still available from previous years, it’s just a shame they left this out for 2019.  Although women aren’t my key demographic, looking at the results were interesting.

When Is The Best Time To Work On A Camsite

I so wish I got a dollar for every time a newbie ask this question, and then an additional dollar for every veteran who responds with “The best time is whenever you log on!” 🙂 That’s not very specific is it? The truth is finding out which times are best to log on and get to work will vary from day to day and season to season. Other factors that can determine when it’s best to be available for camshows are sporting events, religious holidays, natural disasters and politics. And if you read the entire Year In Review you just might be able to come up with a schedule that works for you. Below is a chart that can give you some idea of when camsites may have the most traffic. 

The Best Time Of Day

It doesn’t say in the review what timezone this chart is based on. However in recent years the timetables shown are almost identical with my own research based on Eastern Standard Time. One thing to keep in mind when accessing when the best times to work, is to think of the time zones in other countries. If you adopt your schedule to military time then it becomes easier to spot peak traffic times for places like the UK, Australia, Germany, France etc. For example if you’re getting preparing for to log on for the after work crowd on the East Coast you just might run into the morning wood crowd in somewhere like Melbourne, Australia. Think in terms of time zones to best capitalize during your time online. 

The Best Day Of The Week

This chart shows what could potentially be the best day of the week to work on a camsite. According to PornHub and my own personal stats, Sunday nights are prime time for porn watchers. I like to schedule my email list around different sporting events and when I think I’ll get the most eyes on my content. So even if you’re primarily an indy cammodel or content creator like myself you can still use these stats to your benefit. Sundays are usually days reserved for family and watching sports…but even that can’t last all day long. This is why I look for windows of opportunity (Half Time) throughout the day (after the game) to release new clips and send out blast via twitter, email and skype. It’s true that sporting events can have an effect on traffic but it doesn’t mean there isn’t any money to be made. Take a look at the complete article on PornHub Insights 2019 to see how you can create the best strategy for your cammodel business going into 2020.
