    I have a one-page web site with 2k UV daily.
    I have some adbrite ads (not approved by G for Adsense) and I earn the HUGE ammount of 0.5$ daily.
    Any clever idea of what I can do to earn some bucks is more than appreciated.

    you have 2k UV on a single page site and only make 50c?

    How many keywords you targetting? What CTR and ecpm you getting? I thought my 35$ daily with 1900UV was bad lol.

    Why are you not using adsense? where are your ads? what sort of content you got?

    Im sure we can get you a lot more cash than that, unless your traffic is toss.

    thanks for the fast answer jim

    It's a one page tool for downloading youtube videos.

    Adsense rejected my req due to TOS violation. CTR , ecpm very low (I'm @ work now and I have no ability to login to adbrite and to tell you the exact values)

    80% of traffic comes from Stumbleuppon.

    Targeting about 10 keywords ...

    Thats fine I don't really need numbers. I am thinking that your page probably consists of something along the lines of a download link, an explanation and some ads. The problem with this is that people are getting to your site to download the tool rather than find out info.

    Ads work best on sites where people are getting there to find info. As people are getting to your page to download the tool they are likely to download the tool and never visit again. To monetize this you might wanna think about getting an opt-in on your page before people can download.

    With 2k UV you will be looking at a good number of optins and in the near future will be pulling in a lot more by mailing offers you think are related to the download than waiting on adverts to pull cash in. Also if you go this route take ALL adverts off your site right away.

    You get $35 for 1900 visitors? Dang. I get $2 for 1-2k visitors, depending on the day. My niche is about iPods, but I don't have any ads above the fold. Maybe it's time to switch themes..

    sign up for C.P.A.L.E.A.D(take out the ".") and put a gateway in there, the lowest payouts per survey is 39 cents i think, and average ones are like 50 cents and more(even 79 cents and 1.29), if you only get like 1 or 2 to convert , which i doubt it would be the case you will already make your same money you make. I am pretty sure you will get atleast 10 in there. They also pay by paypal , so its a good option to use.

    yeah thats kewl, well just put it at the front of your page or how ever you think its better. Just don't recommend it for blogs if you try to expand them, cause blog its good to use CPA companies and Adsense, you want returning people on blogs. Only use C.P.A.L.E.A.D on sites like movie sites(linking to movies), proxies(use it on the proxified search, not front page because you can use adsense on the front page then when people use your proxy they will be prompted with the gateway from C.P.A.L.E.A.D that way you get adsense revenue too.) and small sites.

    Well after a month this are my results:

    Daily earnings: $5 average
    Traffic: Droped from 2000 uv to 600 and continues dropping

    I'm concerned about traffic los so should I keep this monetizing method alive or I should change it ?

    the gateway it's slowing killing your traffic...i got the same problem..the most that i can tell you it's to switch ON your full page ads and put your appears of the ads to 1 refresh (the minimum) and also put some pop under from clicks0r or something this will make some like 3$/day
    all that i can help ;)

    Well just read clicksor publishers spec: "Participating sites must have 5,000 page views per day.". So I doubt they'll accept me.
    Same for PayPoPup...
    I should find other afiliates with not traffic minimum limitations in order to be accepted
    Any suggestion???
