    Hi all, I own Pictir - The High Resolution Image Sharing Solution. For the past couple of months, it's been growing exponentially, with this month's unique visits being over 40,000 and hits on individual images totaling over 14,000,000. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to monetize this. I used to have a few Google AdSense ads up, but they were pulling in a few cents here and there, until eventually I got banned because people were uploading pornographic images.

    So, I'm looking for a new method, and any advice would be extremely helpful!

    40k unique hit and can you share how much you earn from adsense before the ban?

    no search traffic, means traffic is just fake.

    Most of my traffic comes from reddit, facebook, tumblr, and a variety of other forums. Google Analytics doesn't show the embedded image hits, but I can PM anyone who's interested in stats the screenshot of my server's statistics page.

    I pay 13.90USD/month for my hosting, but I'm looking to expand so it might go up sooner.

    CPM ads would be perfect for this. I've seen similar sites and this is how they monetize it.
