    Hi BHW,

    Excuse if I do something wrong but actually, it's my first post in here.I want to warmly welcome everybody. I have been driven to the forum through google when I tried to find a little bit more information about earning money through AdSense programme.

    A few months ago I launched my first website with memes and pictures and I targeted my content on one of the African countries. The idea of making money have been simple. Website with the pictures connected with AdSense program + facebook fan page promoted through Facebook Ads. Facebook generates the views, AdSens generate the income.

    In the beginning, everything looked nice. Income from Adsense has been more-less equal to the cost of Facebook Ads which generate for me "free ads" which in turn reflects in quite nice number of "free" likes and fan page views. After 2 weeks of promoting, I decided to increase the daily budget for facebook ads from $5 to $25 ... and it went amazing ... but just for one day ... from $25 spent for the promotion I got $75 income from AdSens + free promotion on Facebook. From my point of view great kick-off... however, I went to greedy and very recklessly. I didn't care too much about Facebook Ad policy and next day I got a brilliant idea to add the NSFW pictures for promotion the fan page. Of course the same day it results in the permanent ban on my Facebook Ads account.

    After all frustration, tears and bla bla I decided to take the one-month break/breath and start again. So I just have started in last 2 weeks and the current situation is as follow:

    1. I opened again Facebook Ads but on the different user account,
    2. I migrated the website to the new URL and hosting,
    3. I left the same Google Adsens ID (it have not been banned),
    4. and on the last week, I have started the promotion the same way as the last time but obviously with much more attention to the promoted content.

    After first-week everything looks nice... everything except the income :) which as you may know is very important part of this project :)

    So I am generating approximately constant number of viewers (1-1.2 k) through the Facebook Adds which is my main (almost only) source of website visitors. The visitors visiting the page and then click the adds on the same level (even higher) as previously. The problem is that the RPM dropped from $7-8 to $0.25. A week ago It used to be even lower on the level of $0.01-$0.02. Every day I generate a little bit more and I see small progress, however, I'm very far from the level of my previous experience and I'm starting to be afraid that I'm just wasting the time.

    So jep. This is the story. I hope useful for all beginners, as a great example how to DO NOT on-line money. Anyway, I'm still with my business and with facebook ads running in the background and consuming money so I have some urgent questions :) I will very appreciate feedback from you guys, as much more experienced and well-oriented users.

    1. First of all, what do you think about this money making system ?? I know it's not something new and facebook and google fight with it. Is it just my mistake that I have started promotion of NSFW (obviously it's) or anyway sooner or later my income have to drop down and stay low ??

    2. Why my RPM dropped from $6-7 to $0.25 ?? should I count, it will come back to high level in few weeks just if I will keep my traffic from facebook ??

    3. Do exist any methods to influence RPM ?? if yes where I can read a little bit more about it.

    4. What is a good ad alternative for Google Ads to the website with memes and stories/news (NOT FAKE NEWS)


    And last but not least, before somebody will eat me please be aware that I don't have any previous experience in on-line money making and it's my first try. Be easygoing :))

    btw. I'm really happy to be a new me. It looks like tons of knowladge. Cheers!

    I understand your situation but let me tell you

    when you speak of websites of inmagenes I am afraid to tell you that the RPM has nothing to do here so Google adsense does not work

    so I could help you with these tips

    1. google adsense and images the (CPC cost per click is low miy tends to make 0.01 to 0.02 Latin countries, your traffic is ???

    2. According to your Click for every thousand visits you have a good Ctr that is equal to RPM but you must tell me the following (how many visits do you have to your CPC and how many clicks have you had) to see what is the problem with the losses of earnings if it was the cpc or not or modified the theme and that's why menls click

    3. the RPM is the base of click and visits / so to upload it you have to otpimizar those two things and to raise the cpc you need content of Other theme more pay example in a random news jusrl below img something semi black hat but It is totally white and legal

    Greetings friend

    This seems a great method. It's called Adsense Arbitrage, I'm planning to enter this business and I have already an Adsense account. Can you please tell me what are the risks of this method (if it has) and is it still worth trying it? Also do you have a course or a playlist on Youtube or something?
    Thanks.

    Thanks, man! It gives me a little different point of view.

    1. My CPC through the last week has been 0.01. I just checked right now and in January when I tried run website for the first time it used to be 0.02. Not the big difference as I guess. However, as I see right now in January the biggest income has been generated through the CPM. Currently, CPM is almost equal to 0. What can affect the CPM ??

    2. How many views ?? In last week in last three days I had 1-1.2 views per day. Regarding point one and keeping in mind that i didn't change anything with my ads position on the web I assume that CPC rate should be on the similar level as in January when the income has been good

    3. Now I see that probably it is mostly because of the visits. What have the influence on the CPM ?? let's do some math based on two different days. An average day in January vs average day in April :
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    WEBSITE IN JANUARY:
    • 745 views
    • RPM - $8
    CPM income: $7
    • 13 ad clicks
    • CPC - $0.03
    CPC income: $1

    TOTAL income: $8

    THE SAME WEBSITE IN APRIL - SAME AD SETUP:
    • 1165 views - higher number of views
    • RPM - $0.06 - but much more lower RPM
    CPM income: $0.08 - much lower income from CPM
    • 48 ad clicks - the higher number of ad clicks
    • CPC - $0.01 - but lower CPC
    CPC income: $0.60 - lower income from CPC even when the number of the click is higher

    TOTAL income: $0.66
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What do you think about it ??

    Hi, unfortunately, I don't have. I didn't even know this method have a name. Honestly, it's hard to say right now. If you ask about myself when I summarize whole time spent to prepare the website, to find and set up the content, to promote on Facebook and of course the cost of Facebook ads I made a loss. I still believe in the method but I'm afraid that from 2018 adsens and facebook are more sensitive to this and make our life harder.

    The biggest risk is that you will mess with the Facebook and Adsense ad policy and they will ban your account... which will imidietly result in kicking you out from the business. The biggest cost is the server and ads. I lost up to now around $500 and plenty of time... more than one month.
