    Hey guys,

    Here's the breakdown. I created a website three days ago. It's a content site with google ads at the top and bottom of the image. I posted it on facebook wall last night around 9pm. Today I woke to find I had made $3 from adsense and had over 2,509 visitors to my site. The niche I found is good, my content is good. I can definitely keep making more of it. I made some social media accounts to go with it and within a night I had over 1,000 on facebook and 500 on instagram all completely natural.

    My question now is, what next?

    Obviously I keep creating content but how do I get more traffic to my site?
    How can I optimize adsense to increase revenue?
    What are some tools I can use to build and scale my audience?

    Since the content are text heavy images, Facebook won't allow me to run ads or boost my posts and
    I have already posted into various facebook groups relating to my niche.

    If any of you guys would be so kind as to point me in the right direction, offer advice, or share some BHW posts I might have missed that could help me out I would be eternally grateful.

    Cheers!

    Much better with CPA than adsense using viral stuff... I got around about same traffic as you, and check my daily earnings. https://gyazo.com/a2cce037a49bf0789c922e62d1e7635b

    Edit.. Obviously it depends on your type of viral content, but you should beable to change.

    @gavinhill123 wait, so you use affiliate marketing methods to generate revenue. So if I were to find a product or service related to my niche, reached out to the company selling those products or services and said "I'll run an ad of your company on my website for x amount of money per click and x amount of money if they buy the product after visiting your site from mine" ?

    a better question would be what kind of friends. On my personal facebook the image I posted was shared twice. But now I have over 4500 page views from facebook, reddit, and twitter. I didn't even post the image link on twitter or reddit. So, I guess a few friends of mine saw the niche and enjoyed the content enough to share it themselves.

    You can still run ads on Facebook, just try to work / upload a custom image with less text. Use old rule of 20% text on images. Or you may try to do it into your structured snippet / schema / open graph.
