    I have 2 different adult tumblr blogs and one of them has 1,6k followers the other has 600+ followers.

    But i am not earning anything.

    I have 1 popup that only works on internet explorer and firefox somtimes.

    I have multiple banner ads on the top and some to the right.


    Should i just give up?

    That's your problem right there. You're trying too hard.

    Get rid of the popups. Put some quality content on your blogs, post regularly. Put a couple of Adsense ads at the top, side and bottom of the content.

    Keep it niche relevant. You'll be earning in no time.

    Edit: Just saw it's an adult blog. Don't put Adsense on it. Just keep posting good porn I suppose. ExoClick supports Adult sites, last I checked.

    You probably need CPA offers that'll attract your users. If your followers are all over the map and not focused on a particular interest, then you'll always have low CTR. But if you target a specific group of people, then it'll be easier to sell them whatever offers you got.

    Cave out a niche for yourself ad ensure your followers are targeted. With a thousand plus of them and growing you should start making money based on your method of monetization. If your particular mode of monetization is not working for you then you have to look at something else..

    Adsense doesn't allow adult content. + i don't have an account.
    I'm on a adult cpa network that pays per signup or per sale and my banners are attractive.
    The popup only works on internet explorer and firefox.

    My blog contains good quality content, and have a very nice theme.

    My blog has twitter and facebook shares.

    Since REP is gone, some really obnoxious posts have gone by. Yesterday I was trying to help a douchebag who then said "WAHT THE FUCK I WANT YOU TO SAY A OR B NOT GIVE ALL THAT EXPLANATION BULLSHIT".

    I wish I had my REP 12 gauge right there.

    hey

    it always seems that you have done everything you can to earn.
    but sometimes you are not doing it the right way.

    try reading around about how to make money with tumblr and redo what you are doing wrong.

    you might just start making money :)

    Thanks

    My CPA network has their own very unique tutorials on how to monetize with tumblr, but it's not giving any results.

    Anyways thanks.

    Which network? Share the network and people might have better suggestions.

    Which adult niche are you targeting? Adult blogs are saturated, you might have better luck with gay midget porn.

    What are you expecting to earn? You don't have many followers.


    You say you have multiple banner ads, I would cut down on the number and test a different ad each week.

    Kinda agree with you in general, but the guy is telling you that he is running ADULT blogs (as in pron) and you are telling him to use Adsense ;) Either way, no need to turn the thread into a pissing match.

    at preben - no idea on the number of followers, but in adult you need TONS of traffic to start making any decent amount of money. Concentrate on getting your traffic up and once you do, you can start tweeking your ads and experiment with different sponsors (programs) to see what works and what doesn't.

    Good luck!

    The problem is simple, you don't have enough followers (any at all really).
    Keep building your audience, keep ranking higher for your niche, get more followers. If you build the content the followers will come.

    I would say you're converting really well for someone with only 1000 followers, but what do I know.
