    ive recently started a video games site, scraping content from other networks and reposting it. I am promoting it through facebook groups and have one cpa email submit article stickied to the home page and linked on all the other pages. i also have adsense running in the sidebar and before and during posts. So far today i have nearly 1000 unique visitors but no revenue!

    any ideas on converting this traffic to cash?

    my most popular articles are game guides, i was thinking of just posting half the article and putting the rest of it behind a content locker. any suggestions on this?

    im struggling with the content locker as ive never used them before. im currently signed up with adwork media but their content locker plugin is not compatible with latest version of wordpress. im going to try and set it up manually.

    so content locker.......do i have the locked content on a seperate page and that opens once the offer is completed? i really dont have a clue with content lockers im afraid

    Just get a amazon account and become a affiliate, know add all the top discounted games, that are selling for PlayStation 3 and 4 and xbox.

    know i no your get CASH.....

    I smell money.....

    what does this mean please.......

    one cpa email submit article stickied to the home page and linked on all the other pages

    how does the above work, your getting traffic from Facebook groups, and a sticky explain please?

    because your going to help me with the above, ill help you with the adsence position of the advert ok.

    all you need is a banner that sits just below the links that users use to goto other pages on your website.

    that it and it a golden nugget always works.

    ive got the content locker working now with a custom wordpress plugin. Ive locked 3 of my biggest guides so i will leave it 24 hours and see what the conversion rate is like.

    What kind of conversion rate is to be expected with content lockers? one post i have is a 'top 10', with the top 3 behind a content lock. what sorta conversion rate does something like this get? my adsense conversion rate is currently 0.1%!!

    I've content locker the larger most popular content. Adsense ctr is currently 0.4% and content locker is 2%.

    Income from both is pretty much the same. I'm hoping for a nice boost now that the USA is getting up and about their day. I'll post my links on Facebook again in an hour or so and see what traffic I get. I don't want to spam it though
