    I have one of those silly "lol" sites (like Failblog.org, etc), and im getting 15k-30k unique visits daily, in my eyes that's a lot of traffic. I need ideas to monetize it, i have Google ads on it, and Ive made about 180 bucks in like 3-4 days, but its slowing down to making about 12 bucks a day at most, and i cant input my tax info on Google yet, for some unknown reason, and the CPM is kinda low.

    What else can i do to monetize that site? I tried Adsdaq, but they denied the site because of "lack of content", i wish i could manually sell ads on it, but i don't know how. Any ideas on what i could do? anything is appreciated!

    Well, have you heard of failbooking.com? Where people submit "funny" facebook stuff? its kinda like that, but with different material. Lol

    EDIT: How do i get polls and peel away pages?

    EDIT 2: Most of the traffic is from the US

    I guess you maybe should try CPM.

    Ads-layer.de .. or clicksor?
    I don´t have a clue really.

    Maybe Pop-ups?
    Are your traffic mostly viewers that coming back to your site often, or are they new for each day? (Returning visitors).

    Maybe check similar sites as your own (failbog, failbooking,...) and see what are they doing for monetization of their sites.

    poll and peel away pages should be available in the download section, or else there is google also. The best thing you can do is ask them if they liked the joke and tell them that they could win a laptop or sometinhg for the opinion.

    Also have a look at harro's 100 % clickthrough method, then combine it with bidv3r715er.

    bidv sucks, use it with adsense instead.

    Since you don't have the tax info in (adsense won't pay you). Use full page ads and contextual hover / popups. If you did contextual hover ads (infolinks, etology) you could make like $50+ a day with that kind of traffic.

    Buid a list and send them the "fail of the day" to get them coming back to your site. Then I would try to add some cpa offers on the site also.

    I'd go with CPM. you'll probably make more than adsense at this rate.
    plus having 15-30k a day is enough to get you in to some of the more prestigious cpm companies.

    here's a list of some to get you started:
    Burstmedia.com
    realtechnetwork.com
    intermarkets.net
    adrevservice.com
    adlink.net
    paypopup.com
    revenue.net
    azoogleads.com
    directresponse.com
    clickxchange.com
    emarketmakers.com

    How would you lose traffic if you have virtually no returning visitors already?

    cpa might not. but you might see an offer that just might get your users to bite.
