    Hi

    I have a TvShow site with about 8k unique visitors per day. But I am getting paid very poorly.

    Example: I joined trafficrenevue dot com. I am using their SlidingBanner, there stands that they pay $3.44 for 1k US visitors. I did some calculations and I have 4k US visitors per day, so thats ~$13 but I did receive only $2.
    I tried the slidingbanner is working fine every time I visit, tried with proxys and worked also all the time.

    I tried Popads dot net and same problem.

    So my question is: Are PPC companies ripping us off?

    Any suggestion how to monetizise?

    Thanks.

    Have you tried content locking?

    This can be set up in some pretty clever ways, such as having the locker pop up only after say 3 minutes of watching, meaning that the viewer will already be interested in your stuff (and know that its real) before asking to fill a CPA offer.

    Obviously it wouldn't work if you get lots of returning traffic as this would just piss your visitors off - but the majority of your traffic is new then you should definitely give it a go.

    Thanks for the reply!
    The thing is I will lose all my traffic, about 15% of my traffic is organic.
    Other 85% is coming from Tv entertainment sites such as sidereel, tvduck, blinkx and some others. And they don't allow content locking.

    I contacted the support and seems like that $3.44 for 1000 unique views doesn't apply on all publishers, it's average. They will rate your website when you register.

    Any other suggestion to monetise?
