My Notes

Go Back   LYLA - Canadian Escort Recommendation Board & Lyla's List > Ontario > Ottawa Ontario > Ottawa DISCUSSION - Escorts
Ottawa DISCUSSION - Escorts No advertising here and please no negative comments, reviews or fighting. Also keep in mind that before November 2014 prostitution was legal but now only escorting is legal (No prostitution services) so please do not discuss prostitution related things here any more as we no longer have this area for courtesans and escorts it is not just for escorts.

Interesting comments about demise of BP ; as many of you know the US has largely removed type of ads we have in Canada. The same thing could well happen here since so many of the ads are fake! Pictures are being stolen from models on Instagram or otter social media.

BP doesn't care if the ads are fake, they're making money. It's all about the bottom line.

Most provincial LE across Canada have stated they have no plans on attempting to have any changes made on how BP operates in Canada as far as Industry ads. They find it easier to keep tabs on Providers in the Industry and suggest if things changed it would only make their tasks more difficult for this.

Aside from outside interference and pressure to remove ads in Canada, men will enventually grow tired of the fakes,scams and bait and switch. This is why many ultimately end up on this site asking for info about women who don’t have a presence.

Yes, I agree with others that it is all about the money. I starting using backpage when it was relatively unknown even though BP was founded in 2004. It was $2 an ad and there weren’t that many listings. This was when Craig’s List shut down their erotic section which was free. Craigslist’s ads were removed in the U.S. after a woman was murdered by a med student in Boston in a hotel room.

Not long after, the Canadian government followed suit. It’s happened before and could happen again. Craigslist is a large site as well that receives revenue and its net worth $400 million back in 2010. Apparently it only staffed 30 employees during that time. Backpage reportedly made $346 million from 2013-2015 with 98% of that revenue coming from adult entertainment ads.

If the owners of Backpage created a site where everyone moved over from Craigslist, someone else is capable of creating a site to rival Backpage who could offer providers more bang for their buck at a lower advertising rate.

Backpage will hit a price ceiling where ladies will no longer feel it’s worth it to advertise there. My prediction is it will be a slow decline from here on out. They’ve taken a lot of hits already especially when they lowered rates to $1 during their credit card fiasco which is why they are making up for it now. Providers knew that it was going to be a higher rate to advertise again once they got their bearings back outside of court. I haven’t used Backpage since last year.

It will be interesting to see in the next few years how events and circumstances will shift. It is inevitable that the industry will evolve once again and that time is coming soon.

If you want an idea what's going on in Trumpland (AKA 'Land of the Free'), just look at the BP w4m dating section of a large city, say Miami. Only thing in the titleand ad is a phone number and age with a few pics. Crazy. Some of them have the clever initiative to embed their text in the jpg pic but that's not the majority. One thing I can't figure out is why all of them put some bogus twitter or instagram link in their ads.

I believe the twitter/instagram links are some requirement that BP has initiated to, at least, be able to give the perception of validity to LE. Hence they're all bogus. I've been noticing the same bogus twitter/facebook/instagram links showing up in many of the BP ads here in Ottawa....
.... if only more folks were aware of and used Lyla.....

As i explained in another forum, backpage now require us to put a social media page and also reduce the amount of our text to just a few words! Obviously some girl wont attach their personnal social media page for privacy.
This doesnt mean they are fake and the opposite is also true, they can have - "real" social media page and their ad be fake...
So just keep using your good judgement and everything will be fine

(For the ones who dont have social media in their ad, they were just lucky enough to have their old ads but if they try to even change just a word or a pic they will be required the same thing)
Hope this helps

Now I understand why so many ads have links to Instagram accounts that have nothing posted in them.

I was contacted by the AFA group ( anti fake ads) that is a non profit, volunteer google group dedicated to better the industry to educate clients and services providers alike to stop the use of fake ads.

It is a country wide project and I will be supporting them as an AFA member. This group as a whole is similar to Cowboy’s Kenny’s blog but on a much larger scale.

It is up to us to create a better industry that has since gone downhill. Sites like Lyla have always been a mainstay for reputable ladies and deserves to stay that way when people search for the best companionship. Change happens when we create it.

A few new and legit backpage advertsiers are setting real twitter pages in reaction to the ad changes, this is a good idea as there are a few really great new and reviewed ladies who we can find a lot easier now. Most civilians have no idea that CERB exists, but they know where to find backpage, so as long as backpage can sell ads, guys will visit and set up dates. let's face it, if everyone who every once in a while saw a girl actually belonged to cerb, the numbers and the content would be exploding on cerb. There are enough guys, who aren`t aware of the Cerb sites, who will constantly go visit hot fake ad girls every night in Ottawa and they'll stay after seeing the surprise behind the door because she has female body parts and he`s there so why not. Backpage and their fake girls thrive because Joe Barrhaven wants to get some strange, and regardless of who she turns out to be behind that door, he`s staying because it`s not his wife and that cashola is ready to be spent. You even hear experience hobbiests admitting that they stayed at the backpage fakers place even though the pics were lies, because she was kinda cute lol Without the reputable agencies that once thrived here, guys are left with a few known players or the roulette game of backpage. What is interesting is the growth in the mp industry in Ottawa, seemingly at the expense of legit escort agencies.
