Using this information, our advertisers can create geo-targeted campaigns and know exactly which countries drive the most traffic to the site.

The Details

Over the last year, we’ve discussed the importance of keywords and how they can be a useful tool in a campaign if you want to target more specific traffic. In fact, knowing who searches for particular keywords and where they search for them can be very important when creating a successful campaign. The data scientists at Pornhub gathered a list of the top 20 most searched for terms over the last year. This is a mere sampling of what is being searched for. If you ever want more information on keywords, don’t hesitate to contact our sales team for more insights on how to use keywords to your advantage in your campaigns.

The Timing

One thing that we get asked a lot is what is the best time to advertise? When is the best time to run a campaign? According to the Pornhub Insights team, “There is generally a lull in traffic between 2am and 9am, when people are either sleeping or heading out of the house to start their day, and traffic then reaches its highest levels from 10pm to midnight. This trend stays true throughout most of the week, with our happiest hour from Sunday through Thursday holding strong at 11pm, and then at 12am on Friday and Saturday…” In addition to this information, they have put together a graph showing the most popular days and times of the week to run on Pornhub.
