    I made a page yesterday and it's the only one which has done so well, so fast.

    It's just hit 5k members (Not really viral but it only got to 1k about 3 hours ago, so its just started kicking off) and i've made about $70 so far from it.

    I'm wondering what the average $ per 1k fans I should be getting.
    I've heard it's supposed to be $8 per 1k fans.

    On "average" you should earn $0.01c per fan :)

    Ok thanks peter. Looks like im not doing too bad then.

    And r0llies, I used CPA, but I promised the user content which I didn't give :/
    I made an account for the cpa network on a proxy though so if I get banned I won't loose any previous commisions.

    I'm nearing 6k fans now and i've nearly hit $100 :D
    The name of the group isn't specific at all, but the page itself is against ToS, so if its not banned by the time they ask me to verify, I could change it to something else...

    Im confused. I had heard the going rate for a page when selling or buying was .01 per fan. So why would people buy the pages for the same price they are going to make off them? I may be missing something, but idk.

    Yes it is weird, but thats what i was told. So if you make $12 from 1000 fans, your $2 up :)

    It varies.

    If you've got something juicy, you should be milking $5k-$6k per 100k fans.

    is this over a specified period of time? Or is it 1c per the entire lifetime of the fan?

    So will that fan be making me 1c every X amount of time, or only once?

    I managed to get near-enough $500 from my page in about 48 hours. It was at 12k before I went to bed but i'm guesing it got to 20k before it got banned :>

    Time to repeat :D

    Isnt there a way to market the pages without losing them so quickly? I mean, yes you made almost $500, but maybe you did something that could be avoided in the future and make even more while the page still grows.

    Ha, I remember I was making $150 a day when my groups where fresh and just went viral. Eventually it dies down a bit and you have to make something new.

    Hmmm well i was using the force code. And if I got about 400 clicks on my cpa offer per hour.

    So if the average user has 50 friends thats 50x400=2000 invites per hour. If it was up for 24-48 hours you can see why they got suspicious. I could of ripped down the code, but then I wouldn't of made as much.

    My aim was to just milk the page while it was alive.

    Oh ok, so your page went viral from all those invites going out. I see now why it got banned. When youre ready to build your new page hit me up, I have some suggestions and ideas.

    I'm still trying to figure this shit out. I have a page that has 18,000 fans and it grows everyday, but I have yet to see a fricken penny from it.

    I've been doing that. No monetary results yet. Great source of traffic though.
