I acquired this domain quite by accident. A little over 14 years ago someone came across my site, Cheap Phone Sex, and decided to make an exact copy using a different telephone number. I called my attorneys and the damages were paid via check and ownership of the domain, hushes.com. There have been other lawsuits and in every case, I acquired the offending domain. I sold all of them except hushes.com.
Flash forward to 2014 where I find my 14-year old blog located at cheap-phone-sex.net has been caught up in some sort of an algorithmic penalty. Instead of ranking at the top of various search terms I was consistently ranking at the very bottom (if at all). I gave it 50 days to turn around and when that proved to be a lost cause moved my blog to hushes.com. Hmmm …things do have a way of working themselves out.
As my most ardent callers will tell you, I have over the last several months been slowly moving to this point. However, I had to complete the transition within the last month as opposed to the 6 months it would have taken. While this is neither the platform nor design of my choice, it will have to do for now. And for that reason, all I can say is fuck you Google.
For more than a decade I have naively believed that if you follow the rules and create good content everything will work out fine. Well, I have been at the butt end of various negative SEO tactics, my intellectual property has been stolen more times than I can count and now my site which is almost as old as Google itself has been lumped in with black hat sites. Each time I have had to stop what I am doing (making guys supremely happy) and undo whatever some random and may I add jealous SEO wanna-be type has done to my site. It’s time-consuming, costly and distracting. Frankly, I am sick of it.
Given I have the world’s first, oldest and continuously published phone sex blog, I should be given some kudos. I mean come on! How many adult entertainment sites (not companies but sites) have been around as long as mine? How many have never engaged in spam or other nefarious activities? How about giving me a little authority for keeping my nose clean and sticking it out this long? And if you see something untoward, how about giving me the benefit of the doubt? Seriously, what’s the point of being a good girl if there aren’t any perks?
So, here’s the thing: my phone sex blog has permanently moved to hushes.com. Over the next 18 months, my online presence will reflect this move. Everything else is the same namely my toll-free number, 1-888-669-6389, and my rates, $12 for 15-minutes. If you have any questions, ask.
