    Hi,
    I have a web site, which teaches, how to do simple hacking (facebook,email).

    And its alexa ranks are Global- 1,878,000 Global (3,366), it came up global 3,000,000 to 1,878,000 WITHOUT any black,white,gray hat stuff within two months.

    But the problem is, im not earning anything from it, not even a $0.01. How can i earn from it, surely adsense dont support. i tried adbrite,bidvertisa...etc.

    Please advice me, i like to put popup ads or anything to earn.
    Please dont put ur affiliate links here, i need a hounest advice from you.

    thanks:)

    There's not much offers to promote in this niche. As said above, you can sell your own ebook if you have sound knowledge in that area. Check other popular hacking related sites and see what they are promoting. May be you will find some offers to promote. The other best option is promoting "key loggers" and I'm sure there are many software with affiliate program.

    Why don't you look at how other similar sites make money, like
    hackthissite google it. They advertise anti virus and hacking software. They have a donate button. They also have a store selling hacking related clothes and desk supplies.

    Use payed membership, just like BHW does. If your leet forum members want access to the advanced stuff make them pay.
    Make an ebook on how to own(and how to protect) websites and how to use them to monetize.
    I know at least one person from BHW who would buy it: TheMatrix

    hmm.. there's not much you can do for such niche. Teach about hacking? Those visitors will not convert into customers, or buyers.. They don't even click ads. They will just come to your web, read the tutorials and immediately leave it as they want to try your hacking techniques.

    ..but oh, maybe you can try something like content locker..

    Not talking about Adsense and other CPC,offer like 125x125 banner ads of websites on your own site.I have done this in the past in my early days in IM :D If you have a good traffic,offer some banner ads,along header,in the side bar,footer etc.Got wat I said??

    As said, your visitors aren't the buying (or ad clicking) type...

    You could go the ebook way, maybe add a locker - but it had better be good, naturally your visitors will be keen to bust it and also feel great that they've outsmarted a locker on a hack site etc...

    membership is the other way, but I'm unsure they'd pay.. you're content would need to be really good and hard to find elsewhere.

    For me, CPA stuff to access seems the most hopeful revenue, but like I said, make it tight and good, lets face it, those guys doing any CPA submits etc on your site aint gonna convert tho.. they'll fill any old crap to get by it.

    Your all thinking to complex about it; if your site contains any really useful hacking information add a "Donate" button. For valuable information in that niche people will happily donate and your not destroying your fan base with ads or anything.

    Hell if I was looking for an exploit and someone posted it with a donate button I'd happily send them money - plus being a donation/gift it's tax free up to $100 per donation/gift

    CPC and CPA aren't steady in this market either. In advertising you don't think of the money you think of the market. There are not many CPA offers to advertise to that niche, and people who learn hacking are usually smart tech savy and young they are not going to click on your "Take this facebook quiz" content locker, and they are going to adblock your google ads.

    But if there is one thing about most of the programming and hacking communities (the real ones, not punkass script kiddies) it's that they give credit where credit is do and will donate to you if you solve a problem of theirs.

    Knowing your market is the best way to monetize, your options here are slim, and while donations aren't steady it is something that will work.

    You also missed the most important thing:

    TAX FREE

    Up to $100 per donation to an individual, so if every donation is under $100 he pays $0 tax on it all, meaning he can withdraw this money into cold hard cash through his own legal bank account without any worry.

    Kiddies don't even press a thank button here for the million dollar info they get here,I doubt the numbers who will donate for what they have already got.Instead,they will order an Ebook which will promise an "extra" pack a knowledge other than what they are getting from a Google search.Seriously,hardly 20% of the members will pay here at BHW for JR VIP if they won't be getting a separate section with tons of gold knowledge.

    Thank you for showing that you didn't pay attention to which demographic I was talking about. This is why you aren't getting it - you aren't looking at audience.

    I had a look at it...I will ask OP to give it a try,but I don't agree with this.You can use it as an "Alternate" source of money,not the primary one,so getting a donation will be a bonus.Every site is not wikileaks,adding a donate button is cool,but I won't stop thinking there,selling 10 Ebooks and 5 Ad space will fetch more than 2 donations a month.I have done that.In hacking and computing niche.
