Adult sites make Y8.com the worlds biggest flash games portal
While we definitely don’t have the intention to be in any way judgemental on how Y8.com drives traffic to their flash games portal, it definitely caught our attention, when we checked their Alexa statistics. Almost 50 percent of Y8′s traffic sources are adult sites like xvideos.com (27 per cent) or xnxx.com (18 per cent). Of course there are the usual suspects like Google.com (with a mere 3 percent though), but half of their traffic is generated by the two aforementioned sites for adult pleasure. What exactly they have been doing to drive such incredible amounts of traffic to their portal, remains a little mistery.
Another interesting fact: a huge part of the users, that visit Y8.com directly after leaving xvideos.com or xnxx.com, return to these sites after having spent a while playing flash games.
Y8.com is one of the biggest sites on the internet and surely has the most complete collection of flash games among all gaming sites around the world. We’re not saying, they don’t care about the quality of the games they publish, but it should be hard to find ANY flash game ever created, that is not already featured there. Which makes it a pretty fun portal to kill some time (or count the amount of games they have, if you’re more into statistics than gaming).
Well, we’ll keep an eye on the development of Y8.com’s traffic in the future and see, what other interesting sources of traffic they will find.
Update: It seems pretty clear now, that the owners of Y8.com and those adult sites are the same. At least, they all use the same Google Analytics account. Mystery solved, case rested.
