    Hey, It's letsgo here with one of my first posts. I've always been interested in blackhat/interesting methods of making money on the internet. I currently run a blog on Tumblr with a custom domain that's receiving 2000-3000 hits a day. I currently run adsense on the site making 60-100$ a day. I think I can push this number up quite a bit, but I have some questions for veteran Search Engine Optimization experts and old timers in the blogging game.

    -How else can I monetize besides adsense, I feel like there's more potential out there with 13000 followers?

    -I don't currently do anything to optimize my site for search engines, how would I get started with this?

    -I'm looking into putting a facebook click jacking' script on my page to gain more solid traffic seeing as a majority of my followers are 18 and under and are heavy users or facebook, is this a good or bad idea?

    Thanks a ton for reading my post and I look forward to any input I may receive.

    -Letsgo

    my sister is active on tumblr, I have not much a clue about it. but I am sure all those followers are real, meaning they have a certain trust in you.

    you can give them good CPA offers from networks like neverblue and wolfstorm

    or promote affiliate products.

    can you PM me your tumblr? I think I still have an account :p

    Don't give out your information to just anyone, they may try to steal your niche/ideas. If you have people that young, most of them don't have money, so your best bet would be advertising or something imo. Good luck, and remember, protect yourself!

    All my blogs (they are mostly splogs actually) are located on their own domains, I don't use free services like Blogger.

    He is not gloating. He is asking for ways to increase his profit.

    I agree everyone here wanting to see your blog wants to replicate it... And shame on all of you for not coming up with your own ideas.

    You were rather quick to make these assumptions. I've already accumulated a fair amount of Tumblr followers. Regardless, even if someone were to be replicating his idea, it wouldn't saturate.

    To increase his profit he have to increase the traffic. So my solution is easy: made 300-500 autoblogs and send their visitors to that main hand-written blog.

    I agree. Your first post sounded like you were attacking OP for asking how to increase his revenue. I apologise for misinterpreting it.

    would you say its better to run a tumblr-hosted blog than a self hosted wordpress? does the followers stuff give so much traffic that you dont care for the disadvantages?

    Ha, not to sound cocky, but what good does a niche on a Tumblr blog with that low of traffic do me? I have blogs getting 5k+ hits a day, not spammy autoblogs either legit sites that I've built a premium brand around, it's just hard to sit here and tell this guy anything if I have no idea what his site is about.

    I will say this for OP: Tumblr users have a distinct tendency to interact with contact via the dashboard and NOT with your site, therefore affiliate links (text links) are a great option, because they are visible in the dashboard panel (Tumblr users know what I mean). Also you could link images.

    Ads on your blog aren't going to go much farther than they have already in my opinion, due to the reason I listed: once a Tumblr user has followed you, they mainly stay updated via the dashboard and won't view your page directly.

    Try to also get people to convert over to email subscribers, as they click through far more often than followers.

    Contact me if you want to discuss anything further, and good luck with your site.

    if I got 2-3000 hits a day I'd be a fucking millionaire.

    It's all relative. I live very comfortably on 3-400 hits a day. It all depends on what you're selling.
