    Default Monetizing Blog Further Help (750,000 unique monthly views)

    Hello!


    My name is Alex, and I run a men's entertainment blog that gets 750,000 unique monthly views. I make ~$10k a month off of it, but I'd like to monetize it further. Currently, ~90% of the revenue is from banner ads (CPM based) and the other 10% is from the occasional sponsored thread and affiliate marketing links.

    Otherwise, any ideas on what I could do? I've considered PPC advertising, but never really tried it. What are the best networks for it?

    What can I do outside of banner ads?

    -Alex

    Edit: I should have clarified further. It's not a porn site, or anything like that. We cover a variety of topics - auto, life advice, style, sex, dating, health, art, photography, etc. We do however have some adult content on our site, so we can't use google adsense.

    $10,000 is a great amount to be making. By mens entertainment i'm guessing you mean porn?
    Give PPC a go and see how it works out

    Hey alex, you are doing well mate! maybe you could put your own product together and sell it on there? Im sure there is plenty of things that men are interested in!

    Maybe try affiliate products too, building muscle fast and all of that stuff!

    You could also try to build an email list, this will give you a huge opportunity to profit from in the future

    Interestingly you haven't tried adsense. That's a no brainer if you are getting that much traffic. You can try them along with CPM ads and ofcourse affiliate and CPA offers are available for Entertainment niche too.

    Do you know any ad networks that would work well with men's entertainment? Any PPC ad networks you'd recommend outside of google adsense?

    If it's adult traffic then there is a reason for that. Adsense will ban him straight away.

    Are you accruing a mailing list?

    Are you getting car insurance leads from your auto section?

    Are you getting betting affiliate click throughs and registrations in your sports section? Are you UK/US based, will change what you are able to do.

    Are you promoting/reviewing products then providing a direct link to, for example, Amazon with your affiliate link?

    But No. 1 is the mailing list, I hope with that amount of traffic you are collecting emails, sectioned by their interests.

    I will answer this one for BloggerAlex.... He sat down and thought of an idea. He then purchased a domain name and hosting, and posted content. When the blog started to blow up, he moved onto a dedicated server. He than got a piece of art making $10k a month.

    Or he just bought the site. Either way, it is still impressive.

    Hello Alex,

    Sure no problem.

    I don't do skype, you want to email me you can do so at a_adamss87@yahoo.co.uk. If you want to speak too we can do so, I have a landline, I am the last human to have one!

    When/if you email me, provide me with the URL of the blog so that I can see specifically the type of content you're providing and therefore the audience you're attracting, this will help.

    Warm regards,

    Anthony

    I am rather new to black hat world forums, so I can't send PM's yet or post my email address or anything like that.

    If you'd like to speak with me, PM me your contact information and I will contact you.

    $10k a month? Wow. Good job on that. As previously mentioned, Adsense is a good way to go.
