    I have setup a humor site/blog yesterday and I have a few 100's visits in two days so far. I tired applying for Google Adsense but I was rejected because the site has few or no written content. I have signed up for CPMLeader and I have posted some ads on the site but the payout is very low because of my traffic (since I'm just starting). Is there any suggestion I can get about how I can get more traffic or a better way to monetize the site/blog?
    Thank you

    I would remove your site if I was you! Never post your site on a public forum it won't end well!

    Why you think so. Don't you think humour site is good for making money? Cheers.

    I think you have misunderstood. I told OP to remove his site from this thread.

    I told him to do this as this is a public forum so anything could happen to his site.

    Someone could steal his content, attack his site, do Neg SEO on it, etc.

    I never said they aren't good for making money, I wouldn't know I have never tried a humour site :)

    Humour page is very hard to monetize..

    Try buy and sell ads, or CPM based ads.

    First you would really need to put content, but if you grew a userbase website it can run autopilot.

    I think adsense don't work with humor site so I think you can use infolinks, adhitz or chikita within your site. Chikita is like adsense but not the Adsense. Cheers.

    Close your site and focus on something new - humor is just not worth it.

    See what other big humor websites are monetizing their sites with,
    then you'll get an idea.

    If you are getting rejected by adsense,try media.net
