    I have been on the forum for a few months now (just recently started posting) but have seen very few threads on building arbitrage sites that leverage PPC traffic to generate impressions and clicks to advertisements. It seems to be a bit more lucrative than many of the other money making ideas here so why isn't it more commonly discussed?

    Just curious how many website arbers are on BHW? Maybe we could bounce some ideas around on skype.

    what have you done with it so far? it's very hard to get approved and very easy to get banned. arbitrage like this is the reason why it's really hard to get an adsense account nowadays

    I don't arb with adsense. That risk is simply too high - though you can definitely get away with it if you put in the effort. There are new ad networks springing up almost daily these days. I mix the arb with my organic sites and nobody has asked for their ads to be removed yet. In fact they ask for more volumes with each email. So far it has been going quite well and I expect scaling to be relatively easy with multiple sites. If there are others here doing the same we could share some strategies.

    so what's your traffic source for this? PPV? PPC? clicks aren't as cheap as they were anymore.

    Hi Nessie,

    The risk is quite high as some sources are dubious. For nefarious reasons, some competitors are arbers to counter opponents but always ended up in the red zone.

    Take Care,

    I recently tried to do this working with a parking company. Bing to Google. But the margins just weren't there to make it worth while. I know some guys doing it on a massive scale and it works for them for that reason.

    PPC because visitors typically do more than the one click/view you'd see from PPV.

    I'm asking for more arbing traffic from a PPC network to ad network through a website/blog that is showing the network ads (non-adsense). I know there are all different types of arb platforms, but how many of you at BHW use PPC traffic to monetize display/video ads on a website?
