I started with youtube because I thought there would be a lot of money in that but after 8,000 views and 115 subscribers and only having made about .75 cents I decided I needed something else. So I created a website with a google adsense leaderboard at the top, and an addynamo leaderboard at the bottom. My method right now is using hit leap(using the desktop viewer to get more views) to get some visits, and posting a link to my site around in relevant areas. My website has a forum to try and Maintain a community, but this site is only about a week old so I'm not expecting much of it yet. Addynamo shows the visits buts hasn't given me anything yet. Adsense trys to seem like its only cpc, but I generate about .02(2 cents) a day from cpm.(some days I get .30 to .60 cents) What are some effective ways to get users to visit my site and register in the forum? The subject of the site has a strong community but does have it's loud negative speakers. I would love to see an active community on my forum, can others who have created forums tell me how long it took their community to grow?
