    So i a while ago purchased an old website off a friend who has no idea bout IM. Its got some great links and is getting a reasonable (but still small < 1000uv / Day) amount of traffic. The domain authority alone is letting my articles rank but im not putting any more time into it. It was just a lucky little purchase.

    (By old i mean OLD. Early 2000's kinda design! But I have someone updating the design of it.)

    Has anyone used adsense on a quit smoking website here? There are no mentions of vaping or ecigs on it - which is against their TOS. But i know how SHIT adsense is at determining a sites content. I don't want to risk the account getting banned even though the site is legit and conforms with their TOS.

    So anyone done this?

    You could always sell nicorette gum/patches on it via Amazon. Depends on quality of traffic. If its really good and you have time to write good articles you could sell some gum perhaps.

    find some quality quit smoking products on click bank - pay someone $5 on Fiverr to create your own banner ads - you'll make more on clickbank commissions than you will from adsense

    The CPC in this niche is huge, its certainly an option but i would probably earn more with adsense. Plus i dont want to put much time into this site i have another huge project i am working on.


    I already have a reasonable CB income stream i would like to stay away from it as much as possible because they are turning to shit.

    Slightly unrealted post but it's a mega competitive niche I heard, some years ago I heard people say you can make 10K per month with e-cigs. Not sure how because they're not that expensive... But there you go.

    Quit smoking niche has some of the best affiliate programs.. You can try patches and stuff from amazon, ebooks from clickbank and also ecigs. So many options, other then adsense.

    Yep, and you will make more than with adsense, especially if you are doing it with a native advertising approach and presell the stuff.

    Yeah it really is, and i heard the same - but all i can seem to find with ecig affiliate programmes is a bunch of rather standard 10% - 15% rev share offers. On such a cheap product its nothing.

    Care to show me some great ones? I cant seem to find anything that is going to be worth my time to optimize and test for.

    Same as above - i've heard all about these awesome offers, but can't find them...

    What countries are the primary source of traffic?

    I was in a quit-smoking product in a big way a few years ago - did quite well. Might be able to point you in the right direction if it's prime-country traffic.

    There's always the option to utilize affiliate program's to leverage your visitors.

    In all means try looking for some websites already made and see if they have the same specifications as you're looking for.

    Yes, i think you could make much more on ClickBank products than you're be making with Adsense.

    Mainly US / UK

    They are mainly doing ecig revshare. With the small prices of the ecigs and the 10% commission i just cant see how it is so profitable that it makes the effort they are putting in worth it.

    Better sell products for quit smoking on Amazon & eBay and those will be fine for adsense.

    Well i figured out why they are such profitable offers worth the competition. The income is recurring, so you get a % of all the juice they buy later on too. They are literally addicted to your merchant.

    Doesn't solve my problem though - i don't have time to test that stuff effectively on such a small site.

    Adsense, anyone used it in the niche?

    You could also look on SEOCLerks for people to do this for you. I have had some luck on there before.
