    Hi BHW, it's me again.

    I have been trying IM for almost a year now. About 6months ago I bought a service that provided me a meme site. Site has only meme pictures. How can I monetize this kind of site? how can i direct traffic to this site?

    Follow-up question: if adsense will be my form of monetization, Is it possible to use my hosted adsense account on this site. If not how can I make my hosted adsense account a full adsense account where in I can use on other future websites?

    Adsense is not a fan of image-only website, so I would suggest combining some sort of text plus images.

    Like others have said you need to use social networking like Facebook or Pinterest to advertise a meme site but let me tell you
    right now this is a niche that is very saturated and takes a lot of work without any reward for a long time in order to make money
    and have success with it.

    Don't put adsense on funny image / meme sites....you'll likely lose your account.

    Don't use AdSense on wallpapers/meme sites ever.

    Why? I have few websites of images/quotes/glitters images/celebration images etc .. for more than 6 years now and they are doing pretty well. Is there a reason to be concerned about using ad-sense on them ?

    I've been running a similar site with AdSense on them and haven't had a problem. May be when I start shot load of cash, it'll start getting reviewed and one unhappy reviewer might pull the plug.
    But I honestly think its the placement of ads that gets most of the people. Google clearly states that you cannot place ads adjacent to images which I haven't and AdSense has been fine for over a year now.

    Also a privacy policy and a contact form is a most.
