I'm Receiving Nearly 1,000,000 UV/mo and Earning Diddly-Squat

    I have an active forum which receives 30,000 UV/day through organic search and growing. However, I'm only earning $5/day at most from it, with some popunders and banner ads.

    It ranks in the top three for a 400K/mo exact search term. It's just an inhuman amount of traffic, even in the adult niche. There has to be a way to profit big from this - there's something missing in my monetization strategy, without a doubt.

    I'm currently using CrakRevenue - which doesn't seem to be working out for me. I've sent over 200,000 UV, yet have produced only around 100 leads. I truly need to revamp the entire way I'm doing this - adult traffic isn't worth much these days, but it's certainly worth more than this.

    I'm open to all suggestions, ideas, and even offers. If someone has some really blackhat idea that will earn me a lot of money, this may be a good opportunity to send a PM.

    Try to use this Traffics over CPA Offers, I am sure you will get more leads if you know what They are looking for.

    Did you try selling ad space? I don't have any experience in adult stuff but aside from using adult / dating affiliate programs (which everyone is using) this should be your best bet.

    You could also create something like a BST part of BHW (not to sell software / services but to have a place on the forum where people will have to pay to create a thread). Maybe give new cam girls a place to post their stuff and link to their website or whatever, just use your imagination and think of something. Even tho this traffic isn't profitable for you, it might be for someone else.

    Huh?
    The BST thing wouldn't really fit in. For some reason, people seem to get the idea that a forum like this has a bunch of pornstars on it. That couldn't be further from the truth. It's essentially a more targeted version of 4ch@n's /s.
    PM sent.


    If anyone has any really blackhat ideas, I'm open.

    Where you sell popunders? for 30k uv daily you MUST earn minimum ~$30 a day, and that is really minimum... If you sell/redirect mobile traffic it's +$... But if you earn $5 for 30k uv you get shaved from company serving popunders or large among of your surfers have ad blocker installed...
    I can help you with popunders, my popunder trigger successfully in 95% of first clicks by surfers...

    Offer our ad placements on your site for rent. Since its the adult niche, they'll pay a premium. Or, you can always get the creatives from CPA and offer it in place of the ads you'd rent out. If the traffic is organic and strong (which it sounds like it is), you'll get a good conversion rate with enough unique visits.

    You should use site like Juicyads.com to sell the space. It is the best broker for adult ads that i have used.

    Sell the site to me, I'd pay a decent amount if I can see proof of traffic.

    I think selling ad space is a good idea! Juicyads was mentioned, and I'm sure a lot of people here on the forum would be interested as well if you post in the buy/sell-section.
