    The website is in a highly competitive niche called the "mp3 download" niche. It's essentially where you run a blog, and you try and convert the download links into revenue.

    My website has not been banned on google adsense, and I'm using on pop-up network called "Pop-Ads". I'm currently only making like 20 - 50.00 per day off of traffic which should be doing way more.. what am I doing wrong?

    I've never really tried email listing with this type of niche because I know that people who are just trying to download something most likely are also too cheap to purchase a product so it seems like a waste of time. How can I grow more revenue from my already established 29,000 alexa ranked website?

    I won't post the link here (I can't even my account has too little posts) but if you PM me we can talk more, please don't PM me if you're completely ignorant.. I'm seeking legit help here.

    Have you splittested any other pop-up networks? there's a lot mores out there that might pay higher than popads.

    See what your competitors are doing, what ads network are they using, as simple as that.

    I've tried a couple others, but never really found one that stuck.

    Yea this mostly.

    I've been in this niche for a long time, and revenue used to be good with the simple methods I'm using (over 200+ daily) but now its seeming inflated, so any ideas would be incredible.

    I guess He is looking for ideas on how to monetize his traffic.
    OP, you can try other networks like mgid, media.net and CPA. Keep trying until you find out what works best for you.
    You said your site has not been banned by google. Why not add it? Even if the CPC/RPM is low, you will still make some serious $$ with that traffic.

    You haven't really explained/said why you haven't tried adsense? I've had websites with similar views/day and if I can remember correctly I made substantially more than $20-50/day. Different niche but I would still definitely say to give it a shot.

    I believe using CPA for your kind of business would be terrible and that would just back off the users to find the other website which is easier to use.

    I'm having almost this exact same problem with one of my sites. Tons of traffic but I've never monetized it. Adsense is no good for me because most the pages are not good content for Adsense. I've not tried popups. I've tried things like skimlinks and that didn't really work. I almost had an ad deal with an Adsense partner but it fell through. Now I'm thinking about getting rid of the site. idk.

    This is essentially why I don't properly use adsense (copyrighted content) gets you in some pretty serious heat after some time.
    I'd love to net work with you? If you're interested you could shoot me a message and we could exchange skypes or something?

    Op said it's 100k views not visitors.
    If 100k visitors bring just $20-$50 something is definitely wrong.

    How many actual users daily on the site?

    That's not necessarily true. The one I was talking about is 30k unique users a day. You'd think it would be easy for me to monetize that but it's not. High bounce rates for one thing and the content is mostly crap (Though there's tons of it). It's user-created content (Web pages they made). Huge pain the ass and bogs down the server I have it on without making me money yet. I'm gonna try this popup site the OP mentioned. $20-50 a day would at least make the site worth the server load.

    Sell banner ads for a fixed monthly price or $x.x per 1000 views. Better than adsense and you keep all the revenue for yourself.

    There you go - you just confirmed that 'something' is wrong and more specifically bunch of things.
    You can monetize bounce users also and make much more than $50.
    Here a lot depends on the study and analytics.

    I get around 40,000 - 50,000 actual visitors and between 100,000 - 150,000 page views daily.

    ezoic is the company that didn't work out for me. they said traffic quality wasn't good enough basically because a lot of users create hack pages and all kinds of other stuff I can't filter for. Also because certain less reputable pages wind up getting a large portion of the traffic.
