    Hi guys

    I have a site that is getting around 500 uv per day (traffic from youtube). The site has been getting the same amount of traffic for around 2 years now and is focused on a downloads niche. The original idea was to content lock the downloads but this brought me in around $2 per week!!
    I decided to try out adsense on the site and earnings doubled but still aint enough cash as the avg cpc for this niche is around $0.10 :(

    Should I redirect the traffic to a non related site with a high cpc? or do you think that I should keep the traffic on the site and write a few articles on insurance :p ?

    I don't think users will click after redirection to a non related website. I mean some will, but i think earnings will be allmost the same as now. Maybe find some good product and try some preselling on page

    You can always put the ilivid download link or some of the "sponsored high speed direct download" links.

    These pay $20 per sale but i bet conversions suck, and i wonder how legit they are (for the users, if you are concerned). Ilivid depends on country and network you're with. I believe best payouts are here. With half decent landing page you should have at least 5 downloads per day.

    If you're not making money from it, you should concentrate more on increasing the page-views.

    500 uv's is very less.

    For downloads niche 500 UV is nothing! You can talk about it if you had 4k uv dayly, not less.
    Also try some PPi and not PPS program.

    increasing traffic is out of the question. Im dominating youtube and all the first page (on google) for all my keywords. The niche im using is not that popular :(. I have just deleted the homepage and setup a fake mediafire cpa download page. Hopefully should see an increase in converstions :)

    If they're coming from youtube, maybe some video offers for your niche?

    Always test with different cpa offers, cause adsense won't work well.
