    Hey all,
    Tried searching for others with problems similar to mine with no luck.
    Struggling here. Sorry to bother, but I have tried all sorts of offers/sales tactics and no luck monetizing this traffic. I just threw up an aweber opt in for now.

    71% of it is coming from Google Images.
    Basics - celebrity pictures google. Dating review site with related offers.

    Tried BHCB to see (naked pics), all types of CPA, clickbank, dating aff's, and others.

    Does Google Images traffic just suck? Any help is gladly appreciated and will be repped. Thanks! :)

    You go that far to say it sucks but it's hard to cash in on. Till you find a way to cash in on try something like snowmotion media or any other cpm affiliate. Should be easy to get into.

    They pay per CPM and after a week or so their add adjust to your traffic and they actually don't pay bad for that kind of traffic.

    With google images not many people actually look at the site content, they just click the thumbnail and view the full size image seperately, so not sure how you could utilise that traffic. Add some sort of hot link protection script which redirects to your full page, or other offer page. Not sure if that's possible though! Edit: try this http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/make-money-by-redirecting-google-images-traffic/

    With that kind of traffic, cookie stuffing would probably get your some nice amounts :)

    i would add a framebreaker to your picture blog that you site breaks off the frame..and perhaps it's better to use adsense to monetize celebrity pictures...i would give it a try

    Agree with this too. I search for images pretty frequently, but I hardly look at the sites themselves unless the pic is too small and I need to look at the site to see if there are any other pics that are bigger.

    I guess what you could do is lure them in with smaller thumbnails, then make people scroll down to see other bigger images.

    yes google images traffic would be hard to monetize because people are just clicking on the thumbnail...however as mentioned in posts above...there is a way to make them view your whole page...ive experienced this before...good luck

    When they click on an image they load your website and after 1 sec they will click on the thumbnail to see it bigger... Just cookie stuff or (not sure) framebreak.
