    They have 2 million likes and each posts gets about 150 likes 75 shares and 20 comments.
    I heard they make 50-100k per week. How is that possible?
    I've heard of someone on here with a page with 880k likes and getting about the same stats and only wanting $880 for it?
    If they are making it off adsense I'm wondering how this is possible.

    I recently started wondering if I could do something like this. I can get alot of real likes. I want to get the likes first then start working on the page/website and making posts.
    I know alot of you are going to say its where the likes are from. Im saying i can get mostly at 70%

    I've just checked their site, they get something like 580k daily viewers as well as the sites estimated worth of $1.2mil. If that's what you're asking.

    580K daily viewers translates to 4,060,000 views a week. I don't find that amount of money being made hard to believe.

    These guys were the first one to tackle this lucrative business.

    The majority of their traffic comes from facebook and the last time I checked the post reach was still high. Meaning so many ppl are viewing it on their news feed unlike some fan pages where they only get 1%-10% reach.

    Check out their site on mobile... Don't just load it up, but actually browse around 5-10 links.

    Eventually you will see that they are violating adsense policy by forcing viewers to view full page adsense ads before getting to the content. I think they are using a theme switcher to show different content on mobile, but the desktop version is 100% compliant and the mobile version is 100% not. I guess Google hasn't picked up on it yet since they only popup this block occasionally and it's only on mobile.

    It's pretty clear to me why they can generate so much... Most of the FB traffic is going to be mobile, and with that one simple policy violation they will generate 100% more revenue than a guy who is clean. Hi might be using a lightbox to keep the referral urls clean.

    I don't blame the dude for doing it though. He's already milked the site for so much... If he gets his adsense shut down he's still a millionaire.

    Most likely most of the people who click on ViralNova's links on Facebook don't like or share them. So they get a lot more visitors than likes and shares.

    I had a site once getting 30k unique visitors per day and around 100k views per day, i was making $250-300 a day from adsense, so that converts to $2100 a week from 1 million views, that means if they are getting 4 million views, they are making around 8-10k a week. Not really sure if 100k a week is possible with just 4 million views. If they are getting 4 million unique visitors, then its a different story.

    Any sure information? I've heard they're bankrupt and selling likes on fiverr to survive...
    Seriously now, Viral Nova went viral, has organic likes and people interact with its posts because they like it.
    Other pages were inflated with likejackers, facebook has decreased the reach for pages where users do not engage with their posts, so the reach keeps getting lower, not taking into consideration the number of likes.

    Short Answer: Quality!​

    Its simple. All that viral traffic, and the ads they chose to show.
    The ads showing on their posts look like more "crazy" and "viral" content that might interest the user.

    Thus, giving them more incentive to click the ad.

    The Facebook update dented their views/earnings without a doubt!

    They are still doing pretty well though

    It was a joke. I meant it's easy to assume or just use "I've heard..."

    I Have them liked on my fb and few other Connected pages

    from what i have seen besides main 2 million likes page they have like 10 other pages 500k+ likes and 2-3 other sites
    So it might be possible they take that much although am still not convinced
