    Ok So I did a test. I had 900 clicks on my Article link from twitter.

    My page views were 4,586 Which is about 5 page views per visitor

    My ad impressions were 12,894

    Total ad clicks were 20

    And total profit was $3.01


    I feel like my total profit should be a bit higher then that? At this point it seems like Im better off going with a site like MyLikes or Fans2Cash as they pay about $10.00 per 1k clicks

    It is pretty good. But depends on which niche and what you are promoting. But it is better than MyLikes. But not more than AdSense. My suggest you to use Adsense. If it is supported by Adsense.
    Thanks mate

    yes I'm running Adsense now. Do you think I should add network along side of Adsense? My views are 81% mobile so I was thinking of running one of them pop up ads that you usually get as soon as you land on a page.


    By the way Im running a Mylikes style page. So theres really no specific niche.

    I think you are getting most of the click from third world country that why your earning is a bit low. If yes then your earning stat is ok.

    well out of those 4,586 are as follows

    2,331 US
    500 UK
    100 Germ
    88 As
    229 Ca

    which is a total of 3,019 from high end traffic then the rest is a bunch of small clicks from other countries

    Correct answer also you should try to rotate your adds and do split testing.

    What do you mean by split testing?

    Most of my traffic is mobile too and I get around the same for 1k views per day. I put an ad inside the body of text. My theme has that option but you could do it with html if you don't already. It makes it more view able on mobile. Otherwise, they miss the sidebar and just get the top and bottom banners. Just a thought.

    Depending on the niche I would definitely give AdSense a try, with the right content & ad placement you could be making "much more" then a measly $3-$4 with that traffic.

    I think it also depends on the CPC of the keywords as I received like 202 clicks yesterday and that just made me $31.40 LOW CPC
    Try gathering high CPC keywords and build sites around them, then look for the results.

    Cheers

    Make sure you are using "responsive" ad units and avoid using a themes sidebar if most of your traffic is mobile. You can use (if wordpress) the header and footer plugin or the official adsense plugin to place ads in more optimal positions.
