    I've managed to create a site with viral content and I am boosting a post for about $5/day using FB PPE. I am currently using 2 CPM networks, 1 native ads network and 1 Pop Up network. I've been able to make back my FB spend and get into the $3+ profit range. I've done the math, for every $150 I spend boosting on FB, I should make $90 in profit. Just wondering if anyone else is doing this and maybe we can bounce some ideas off each other? I'm super interested in this business model, it seems very interesting and I love that once it's set up, it's pretty much autopilot.. I'm still doing a bunch of testing, but there does seem to be light at the end of the tunnel.

    Are you cloaking out the ads on the pages that FB bot sees?

    I am not doing cloaking... I'm doing everything legit, as far as I know. I don't think I'm breaking any TOS.

    So Facebook isn't taking issue with your ads/offers on that landing page? That's unusual.

    It points to a normal site, with content, it's not spam and provides value.. I just have ads on the site.

    Try to keep a 2:1 revenue to spend. You have risk if you don't get paid by the ad networks. Test different networks to maximize your revenue and diversify your income sources.

    Hey Mate - I'm very interested in doing this as well. Was just about to start but I read this article and it really threw me off.
    The title of it is :
    "Facebook’s Fake News Crackdown: It’s Complicated"

    Google it - I can't post the link :(

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    How long do you think it'll last? Months?
    PM me man - I'm looking to do this as well.

    Yeah, I think FB is cracking down on fake news, but my site isn't fake news, just stuff that could potentially go viral. My boosted post is getting $0.002 engagement right now, which is pretty damn cheap. I feel like if I could get into 1 or 2 more good networks then I will start scaling up the ad spend. I'm currently working with Content.Ad, Adsense, PopAds, and another network I don't want to disclose just yet... but it is niche specific.

    It's normal sites I'm talking about. They take issue with certain ads. Anyway, you seem to have this all figured out. Good luck.

    I couldn't turn a profit with traffic arbitrage, but maybe you'll be successful with it

    The black numbers at the bottom of the pic are roughly what you need to make every day in order to get a payout at the end of the month. Adsense is the only one that worries me, because it is quite high.. need atleast $3.50/daily adsense earnings in order to reach that $100 payout for the month, but once scaled up, it shouldn't be a problem. Also, I do realize that if even one of these networks decides not to pay me then I am pretty much fucked... there is definitely risk involved, which is why I am testing the waters small before scaling it up too fast. Still better odds than going to a casino, I say..

    yeah you need to be able to do this without relying on adsense ultimately, and always keep an eye make sure everyone is paying on time/move them up to more frequent payouts. Also, you need to stagger your scaling quite a bit and not go all in double down re-invest, it's too much risk, you have to budget and do this gradually.

    There are some people doing this with native ads. Worth looking into :)

    Content.Ad I am using for native ads, and honestly, it's the network returning the most profit... native ads are definitely good and work.

    I do realize most people doing traffic arb are generally trying to get away from adsense, and ultimately I would like to as well... it's just hard finding a network that pays decent. This $0.12 CPM shit just don't cut it... which is why I only fuck with 4 networks now... but I also don't think I am breaking any TOS or rules. I'm pretty sure I am doing everything legit, and Google has recognized traffic arb as an actual "business model" and as far as I know, support its. It's not like I'm sending bot traffic. The FB traffic is targetted, from US and tier 1.. some people are even clicking on the ads, so I think I am safe.. at least for now.
