    Okay... I am fairly new to this, been crunching the study, and trying to figure out the best and most profitable ways to monetize my site.

    The site is new, only about a month old, but based on things I have read here, I started a website based off of my Facebook page which has close to half a million likes and about 6 million reach. It is a funny type posting page, with funny pics, videos, jokes, quizzes, riddles, etc. I tried mylikes and many other article type things but the clickbait and poppup stuff was really pissing off fans, and lost a few. Now I started redirecting traffic to a website of my posts and original funny stuff.

    I am using adsense, in less than a month, the site is up to about 15000 a day. What is the best way to monetize it? Tried amazon and affiliate banners with no success, maybe it needs better targeting, I don't know.

    The problem is I went from $50-$100 a day down to about $15-20 a day by pushing the site instead of the mylikes type stuff. In the long run it is better, but I need to increase it quicker to be equivalent to what I had before. I know the mylike thing is risky on FB, and the website is safer. I would like to know if there are any suggestions in regards to CPM networks or sites I should try. Thoughts please!? Thanks!!

    Try stuffing adsense ads set as "text only" ads above/under the image so it appears as if the ad is the navigation or next button. Adsense is blocking overly aggressive placements so there is some tricks to keeping the arrows in your ads.. Just fool around with placements and don't place them too close to genuine navigation buttons. Set the below the fold adsense units (not the ones surrounding content) as "display only" so you are more likely to earn CPM as opposed to CPC.

    Place native ads under the content as well.

    hi, i think you should monetize it with affiliate. but dont using banner, just direct link on the content that are very related
    example: if you have travel niche that have hotel review page. you can directly link the affiliate link of that hotel page in your article. the conversion rate was high. just make sure the article content is relevan

    Are you selling the FB page?

    The FB sounds better than it is probably, I have 3 posts per hour going up, so it inflates the reach, engagement is 10-15%. Still, not selling the page of course as it is the sole means of directing traffic to the website. I want to be careful with adsense and not do anything to lose them, already had one warning where the links were too close to content. Affiliate-wise, it is a funny page, so there is not a whole lot of funny type affiliate offers or things other than amazon funny items, which I tried, but the visitors are Facebook traffic looking for funny things and not looking to buy things and looking to avoid ads overall. This is why I think CPM is probably my best bet. I just don't know who or what are good ones...

    Well never mind to that I guess, I woke up to a massage that the page has been unpublished. :( I have had warnings before where images were too suggestive or whatever, this time as the final one was a pic saying I bet a man would be faithful if God took an inch off his dick every time he cheated

    Unfortunately, I am waiting on disability, and had started using the page as my only source of income, so i am screwed if there is no way to get the page back. Any ideas for the desperate?

    Strangely.... they said the page is unpublished, but I can still go to it and it says it is published in settings... posts still seem to be happening, i refreshed the page from a logged out pc, and saw a new like for it... anyone know what could be going on?
