    Okay people, need some advice here.

    This is a screenshot of my FB page. I know it's very small in comparison to those ten or hundred thousand pages, but it's very targeted with posts (although competition is very high here), but it was created as my hobby intend, not for commercial purposes. All the fans are real and some of them are really true fans.

    No we are only posting images into the fb alone, every post reaches 30-50 likes of avarage and around "1.5000-2.000 people saw this post".

    Average virality of the post is ~3.5%, sometimes few of them would go 10-20%.

    I'm thinking of transferring these posts to simple blog with facebook integration and few adsense ads.

    I'm not aiming big money, but my main concern is it worth to start now?

    Because i know links are not as popular as FB post. Period.

    How much money would i be earning with such reach and activity?

    Any other ideas of how to engage more users? Facebook ads? Somehow drive traffing via web? Any other methods? I'm looking to invest as little as possible into this one as it's only a hobby.

    I will appreciate any feedback regarding my situation.

    This is my view on the matter seeing as you've stated the fans are targeted to a specific niche, then start monetizing really slowly with say 1 post a week. Keep posting usual content with the occasional, "Why not check out our friends/our website for blah, and use the description of a picture." If you are running a sexy lady page then you will need more fans to make it worthwhile.

    Well, sounds like you can already monetize your FB page. You can do it now! Rake in the bucks!

    Thanks for support. Will try to update of my success. My first target is 10usd a day.

    Meanwhile managed to make few good posts and my stats are really promising. Just the whole fb traffic grow process is quite slow.

    I like the idea of "do it once a week". So i suppose i should run a wordpress blog on good domain and add few google ads? Then drive traffic from facebook posting a picture with a bit.ly link in the description telling like "watch full gallery here: <....> "?

    Is there any free/paid way so that i can drive traffic from google (linkbuilding) regarding targeted keywords and etc?

    As i told You my niche is not a niche at all because of lots of competitors, but mainly these competitors are not into blackhat techniques and their ranking/traffic comes because of their popularity.
