    Hi,

    I have an entertainment site containing funny pictures, videos, gifs. How should I get more traffic, I have tried a lot of things... bookmarking,facebook,twitter, etc. So the usual stuffs. People say, it is easy to get huge amount of traffic with funny picture sites but the monetization is difficult... lol, it is the opposite for me. I only need more traffic.
    I have some questions:
    1. How should I go viral with it?
    2. How much indexed content do I need(from which you say it is quite decenet) or add/week
    3. Your favourite place to get traffic

    1) Make post inciting people to share/comment
    2) I would say 1 every 1-2h (if it's a facebook page)
    3) I don't know

    my favorite place to get traffic is twitter and though I have a high twitter following, if you use hashtags I don't think you need a lot of followers.

    As far as I know Google doesn't accept image-only sites.. if you plan to go with Adsense.

    Getting 0 traffic from twitter, using hashtags always but it seems they can't see my fan page. I have around 500 followers, mostly fake.

    Google has accepted my site looong long time ago, so it accepts but I could say like 10 only image sites with Adsense. :)

    If they do manual check of your site (by a google employee) you'll be in trouble. Google wants written content, not images only.

    9gag, elohell, funnyjunk, just 3 huge only image networks. 9gag has a 24/7 google employee to help them in the Adsense things and they are still up and working. And someone has checked my site if Google approved it. :)

    I have nothing but image sites, I've been flagged by google and gotten personal replies in response to automated flagging, there has never been an issue of my sites only having images, just some of the images on the site being inappropriate. I'm pretty sure having titles is enough to stay in googles good graces.

    I would suggest you to try Feeder Traffic.

    Get about 100 000 - 300 000 UV's. Will get your name out there. But make sure your site is worthy otherwise it wont work. From there you would get a steady stream of
    some UV's a month. Haven't tried it yet, but sure it will work. Won't cost you more than $500 and Im sure you will make this back in no time.

    Another thing Im just thinking about mentioning is that Funny needs shit loads of traffic to make the same money that some other niche site's make with only 300 uv's a day.
    but still there is money in every site.

    Good Luck.
