    I've been trying and failing and after i got lucky with my Twitter account i started making $500 a month! Now $500 is okay.. but i rather have more. Got to thinking if i can combine some of my methods. I'm pretty good with Wordpress and webdesign so i don't have to outsource anything.

    What i've noticed about my twitter money making method is i've been sending traffic to these kind of sites. The basic idea of those sites is a gallery with some pages and on every page a different ad (adsense). Now these subjects could be everything. Like 10 jersey shore quotes, or 10 best ebooks or the 9 best tv shows.

    So i figured out a way to do these in wordpress. I won a few bucks from Namecheap so i bought a domain and set up a good site. Made a custom logo and that's where i am now.

    With my twitter account(s) i can send about 1000 unique views a day to the site. Which isn't that much but i'm hoping it will grow through retweets and advertisement of my own. At first i will be measuring my views and later i will be placing adsense ads. I'm also thinking about adding file ice links below the videos with a message "save this video for mobile". And hopefully i can try and sell some ad space on this site.

    My end goal is to sell the site and the twitter account.

    Day 1
    What did i do?Today i set up the site, submitted to search engines and made 5 galleries.
    What will i do tomorrow Tomorrow i will make 45 more galleries with a total of 50 and add them to my twitter planned messages.
    How much did i make so far? $0.00

    (we really need a journey sub forum :dunce: )

    Yeah it's nice! But the reason i started this is because when i tweet a link it gets like 200/300 American views. And the company that pays for the tweets they only pay 2.1 cents per click. But of course i'm sending a lot of non-US people there as well. So the owner of the site must be banking without me getting paid for it.

    I'm also thinking of advertising on the site. Offering 0.07ct per click for international viewers on twitter. Twitter is the best for these type of sites because people really think its funny stuff and its not some weird offer for weight loss or hearing aids or something.

    /edit
    Earlier this week i already set up the wordpress page (standard theme) with some funny pictures. I tweeted it twice and this happened.

    Now the earnings didn't really make me happy but the views did!

    So, you basically made 500$ bucks tweeting for other sites like top 10 beaches?
    Because if you use it on your own website adsense can ban your account for a lot of twitter traffic
    congrats on your success

    No i make $500 a month with it now. And this will stay steady (hopefully).
    Why would google ban because of a lot of twitter traffic?

    they just don't like it, but I believe that happens randomly, so you should be ok.
    their primary source of traffic is organic. they love it. I've heard stories of banned adsense accounts because of using twitter traffic.

    Best of luck! There shouldn't be any problem with Twitter traffic and adsense.
