Really the only way to test these things is to test them, but you can certainly find out publicly available information about how much traffic each site gets.
Alexa is the best known site for analysing market share, audience engagement, keywords, and traffic.
Punternet ranks 1,663,523 globally - that doesn't tell you how much actual traffic it gets, but this means that there are 1.6million websites which get more traffic. Alexa estimates that the average visitor only visits one page.
Punterlink has a much better ranking of 669,201, and it gets an average of 2 page views per visitor per day. Still not brilliant.
UKA does slightly better than Punterlink at 525,009 and gets 3 page views per visitor
Adultwork is obviously the big dog here. Ranking 47,010 globally. Now remember that AW doesn't even rank on Google for most search terms, so the majority of those visitors are just going straight there. Visitors view just under 10 pages each and spend 10 mins on the site, compared with under 2 minutes on the others above.

Like I said - these figures don't necessarily equate to bookings, they are simply traffic.
Can you help me please, what is UKA?
Thank you advance

I used it years ago but only the free listing so never got much from it.

I did a search on here but the answers are a few years old.
Has anyone used it, is it worth advertising on there?

Works in certain areas around England, especially Midlands but not London. Ended up deleting it and made no difference to my calls

Does anybody advertise on Tryst ? What's your experience with it ?

Yeah I'd like to know that too. Seen it. Have you tried it yet?

I had a few good bookings from it when I had a paid ad up - I let it run out when we had to stop working and I keep meaning to put it back up. I'd give it a go for a few months (as ever, the first month is for the timewasters).

I started posting an ad on Tryst, and then got to the point where they demand advertisers state their pronouns (with no N/A option on the drop down, so mandatory - this was confirmed when I emailed them) and since I found this objectionable, I didn't bother finishing it. It's all very right on (and more than a little quaint in places, as anybody who was on sex work activism mailing lists back around 2009 will confirm) but I can't see it appealing to the sort of punters I want and a whizz through the other ads on there confirmed this.

That said, obviously everybody's different and what works for some won't work for others; I think they give you a month for free so anybody who's happy with their terms may as well give it a go :)

I tried to create an add with city of love twice over the last few months. It said that you can create a free advert if you put their exchange banner on your site, but despite following their instructions meticulously they would not allow me the free ad and would only publish mine if I paid the full price for it.

I hate these kind of sneaky clickbait tactics and therefore won't give them my money on principle. Even though I would have probably paid for the ad straight away if there was never any mention of a free one. Idiots.

Yeah, that site is also bad because there is no customer service email. Lots of other sites have it. Had problems with this site before & didn't have how to contact.

Update on Tryst : have heard so many good feedbacks from girls about it, that it gives them quite a lot of bookings (especially from American clients), etc.

However, for me it's been a complete fail so far (first of all, it's MEGA complicated to get your profile up on there, like I'm not exaggerating, it took me about 2 months for them to approve my profile (after I sent them all the ID documents possible and so many selfies to prove I'm genuine (because every time, "they couldn't clearly identify my age and details" when I can assure my details and date of birth were literally crystal clear on the pictures) anyways so when my profile finally got approved (after I got mad at them on email for messing me around), I was really looking forward to seeing these "numerous" bookings but after a good few weeks (I also paid for one of their premium package that is supposed to make your add more visible), all I got was nothing except a couple of serial timewasters enquiries that led nowhere.

I got the feeling that this website is still fairly new and more popular in North America/Australia and also more suited for high priced girls who do FMTY/long bookings and who advertise on twitter (I might be mistaken but this is how I feel about it) so in the end, not so sure it's worth advertising on there.

Am really surprised it was so complicated to get your profile approved, and that it took so long.

I thought about suggesting Tryst to you, but was unconvinced it would it would garner new business for you.  I cannot tell you why though, but feel validated given your experience.

Tryst is four or five years old, I think, and relatively well-established here now.  However, their target audience was never the UK.  I do not think it ever will be, (and think those who tour the US and work international will probably find Tryst useful).  Not being focused on the UK was part of its appeal for me.  I joined Tryst when it first started and it worked very well for me - over half my clientele came from there, and should I decide I want to start advertising again, will return in a heartbeat.  (During my time using Tryst, I never paid for any of their packages.)

When I first joined Tryst, I had neither a website nor Twitter, although will concede that when I finally got a website and added it to my listing, that led to a surge of bookings.  I still don't have/use Twitter - Twitter accounts for a tiny number of punters, and many of us on here don't use it.  It has never been to our detriment. Twitter also takes a lot of work, and it's all smoke and mirrors anyway.  I know a few FMTY companions who stopped using it because it was all encompassing and bought in little return for the effort involved.

And, as I'm talking about Twitter -

Given that Twitter seems to be in meltdown, I think those whom rely on it for marketing should start thinking about other ways to advertise should it disappear. It could well be on a par to the enormous inconvenience caused when AW removed everyone's phone numbers.
