    Hi all, basically i have just made a Video Sharing website, where people can upload their videos, i have put on Adsense, and i thought i would be able to make some money...

    Well, looks like Adsense is not going well... Here is today's stats:

    Should i wait couple of weeks? Maybe they will optimize and put better ads?

    Anyway, what would you recommend me to use apart from Adsense?

    PopAds, PopUps or CPA are NO go for my site.

    My traffic is mostly from Reddit, and US & UK.

    Thanks for your advice/s.

    There are networks that pay x3 then adwords.
    I believe that a google search for "adsense alternative' will help you.

    JavaScript Miner wont be effective as visitors only stay on the page for 30s-1min max.

    That's pretty bad for a video sharing site, right?

    Holy shit. Only €24 for 175k pageviews? What are your demographics? Where are your visitors coming from? Is it a ''general web wide'' audience where the first most represented country is the US, then India etc. or do they specifically come from poor countries?

    How long have you been running ads? If this is among your first days, I'd let them run then consider switching to another from of monetization.

    you have a very low ctr, try to change the location of your ad, try different locations, this should help you get more clicks -> more money,
    and can you guide the traffic for some higher quality countries ? try to do it.

    Not entirely sure If these companies accept video sharing sites, BUT based on your Pageviews they may make an exception.

    Adthrive & Mediavine have good RPMS. try to aim to get into Adthrive first If they reject you really push for Mediavine, They both pay WAY more than Adsense pays. If your site has no blog, you may want to create one and maybe put 10-20 pieces of solid content on there, this could help the acceptance process if they are not sure If they'll accept a video sharing site

    AdSense is pretty low in its rate, it is better to use along with other display networks as well as native/content discovery ads like Content.ad/RevContent etc, or non-standard ads - videos, top/bottom unit, exit-ads etc

    P.S.

    You can use in-video ads considering you have lots of videos

    Cpa offers converts even with low traffic. With that kind of traffic you easily make $50-$80.

    To hard to give you advice if we don't know the audience. If it's twitch clips, I would be putting banners/notifications with free twitch prime lp + locker.
