Hello everyone.

I’ve done some keyword research into revenge porn following the recent leaks/scandals etc.

Popular search terms

Revenge Porn Sites – this phrase would be good to target, obviously don’t include site names.
Revenge Porn Site
Revenge Porn Videos
Revenge Porn pics
Girlfriend revenge

Let me know if you need anything else on this “interesting” topic.

The aim is that people trying to find revenge porn online end up clicking on links to the Telegraph, delivering them traffic and ultimately profits. Classy stuff… 

Smut-Peddling Labour Councillor Suspended

A Labour councillor has been suspended from the party after Guido revealed his smut-peddling past. Josh Brandwood, a councillor in Morecambe, ran a Facebook page posting leaked Snapchat photos of young men and women in compromising positions. Morecambe Labour group say:

“We are extremely disappointed as a group but feel there is no other option and our residents and more importantly the victims would expect no less.”

Brandwood says in a statement that Guido was right to reveal his past indiscretions:

“Four years later, as an elected representative, my involvement was rightly brought into the public realm. I can now see how naive I was back then, and feel ashamed of my actions.”

A very silly thing to do, for which he is now very sorry.
