    Hi Blackhatworld!

    I have been using a system to generate massive traffic from craigslist and have been receiving around 1200 unique visitors per month. I have monetized my site using CPA offers but have only seen one conversion. Is it that craigslist traffic is crap or is there a better way to monetize my site? All the help is appreciated.

    Also, with my traffic system, I am able to generate 10,000 visitors a day but haven't done so until I can see some conversions.

    Looking forward to your reply's.

    Mike

    1200 UV per month is really small traffic if you are talking about just plain old WH banner advertising (if if those banners are to cpa offers).

    A better approach might be to block your sites content with a gateway (if its appropriate for your site) so that everyone that enters has to complete an offer.

    OR ...

    Skip your website all together and send users DIRECTLY to the offer (also if appropriate for your site).

    The way you are doing it just putting up cpa banners you would need +10k UV per day to see any decent money off it.

    Thanks for the response. Since my site is a basic classified and blogging site, what ways besides blocking the content can I make money from this? This is my first site actually getting real people to my site, so I would like see if I can make it online.

    Do you think I should block the content to the posted ads?
    If so, what plugin/script can I use?

    Once again, much appreciated.

    Its a nice looking site actually.

    I would recommend you edit your post IMMEDITELELY to TAKE THE URL OUT unless you want a BUNCH of BH clones of your website out there!

    The problem is with the gateway your are using the user can just click out of it and then browse your site. The other problem is the site looks pretty damn bare. Lots of categories with no listings.

    If i were you I would:

    1. Get that link off of a Black Hat Site with people WAY more experienced at monitizing this kinda thing than you.

    2. Install a gateway that DOES NOT go away until a user fills out an offer. Like Black Hat Code Breaker.

    3. Get some fake posts in there so it looks like the site is more active than it might be. You might even want to have an app written that can submit fake listings just so your sections stay active until you get there with real posts. Once your real post are up then phase out your fake posts.

    hope that helps you dude

    oh btw take your link off this site dude . . . trust me!

    Awesome thanks man! I took my site off the forum.

    I was thinking of using my pop up but deleting the X so they can close it. I guess I can get creative this that. I will update ya when I see any conversions. Also I agree with you with adding fake posts. Good call!

    You need to research your niche and also give people an incentive for visiting your site other than some BH codebreaker blocking content with CPA fillers.

    Find out where the customers for your niche hang out and become a regular there. RESEARCH,RESEARCH,RESEARCH.

    Sites to use: Spyfu,Quantcast

    Find forums: type this in google "Keyword"+forums find the top 10-20 forums for your niche, register, grab the rss feeds from all of them, use yahoo-pipes to combine all of them into one feed. Now you have a tool to monitor forums in your niche and HELP others purchase your affiliate product.

    Use twitter real time search: search.twitter.com and find out up to the minute market research on your niche. Follow those tweets from users that may seem like potential customers.

    Find content FREE content in your niche and use that FREE content to give to people signing up to your LIST! People may not make impulse purchases on the first time you peddle your offer, SO you must have an auto-responder setup with atleast 7 follow up messages to help persuade your customers to buy.


    You won't need traffic if you have list of say about 100-200 people that trust you and will make purchases off your recommendations. Form relationships and don't just take all the time. Award your list for signing up and reading your promotions.

    Last but not least. RESEARCH your niche some more, you can never know enough information about your target audience, the more the better. Find out where they go and follow them with useful information and gifts.

    Missed your site but maybe you can convert the CL traffic to Ebay Traffic.. Leave them subliminal hints like Having Troubling finding what your looking for lol. Then tell them some interesting stats about Ebay getting the user to think they can find the product there. I'm not sure how Ebay pays but it wouldn't hurt to try considering your current method has only yielded 1 lead.

    you really need to identify the demographic that is visting the site and really get specific with your sales page... If you traffic is just all over the place you can always just do a 'YOU WON A NEW IPHONE 4" lol
