    I have a general news site that gets between 700 - 1200 unique visitors per day. I have tried adsense on the site but didn't have great results i.e. low click through rate. I applied for adcash but site got refused not sure why. Today I am trying popads but so far the pay isn't looking great for the amount of visits.

    Would be grateful for any suggestions :)

    Adsense does poorly on a news site in my experience and I've never found anything that made a ton of money with only 1K visitors a day... give infolinks a shot and see how that does as I use that on a couple of informational type sites and it does not do badly... not real good but nothing that makes me sick to my stomach either.

    Does the site have sections?

    If so you could sign up for magazine affiliate programs and offer subscriptions of relevant magazines in each section.

    What kind of news?

    General news - Go with biz opp or weight loss/Amazon
    Male-targeted news - Dating
    Female-targeted news - Deals
    Kids-targeted news - Game downloads/installs

    These should be displayed in pop-unders with fake refer and once per user per week.
