    Hello there
    I have a website with more than 20k daily visitors. It has been now 2 years with no ads on it to attract people and im willing to monetize that traffic now. Is there any way to that without bothering the visitors??
    thanks

    Download type websites do pretty well with adsense. You could be banking pretty good in my opinion.

    Really ? Adsense? I dont even think the website will be approved by adsense. The website is for downloading android and iphone apps

    Try placing some PerInstallCash banners for products related to your niche in the sidebar of your site and below the header.

    They have a couple dozen software bundles to choose from and payout a reasonable amount per qualified install.

    If you use Adsense you will lose your account.

    Adsense will get banned, if you use on this site. I have 2 download sites and they get on avg. 25-30% ctr with adsense. Using it from last 2 years. Though my download site offers free softwares only.

    Best is to go with some pay per install offers, you will be earning good with that.

    I started a site similar to yours for a week now. Does your traffic come from social media or organic? One more thing, is it similar to filehippo?

    To op, sorry for non related question.

    You can only use the landing pages that they supply to you, you can't download the file and upload it someplace yourself.

    If you use PPD for your files people might get mad and stop visitng your website so just keep your site the same and add the banners and you should do fairly well.

    The traffic is totally organic and you can say site is similar to filehippo, though the target audience is limited.
