    Hey everyone,

    I have a new site I created on car insurance, it's been up for 2 months now and is PR2, so I'm looking for ways to monetize it.

    Originally I wanted to go with Surehits but when I applied they denied me, saying they only accept sites on Google page one. I'm at position 12 for my main keyword.

    Also tried CJ but no luck.

    Any ideas on best methods to monetize? Good CPA companies with car insurance offers? I was leaning toward CPA lead generation offers rather than Adsense, but I need a few recommendations.

    Thanks!

    I checked MaxBounty for car insurance offer and I think there are some nice ones. They got ZIP Submit with 2,25$ payout and also higher paying offers like a rate report for 10$+

    Thanks. I applied with them yesterday so hopefully I'll hear back in the next week. Were they hard to get into?

    AdSense is good for insurance, $0.75-$2 per click on my insurance sites (auto/dui/dwi).

    I have a one page Adsense Insurace site that routinely gets $2 and $3 clicks too. Why not Adsense?

    I'm not completely against Adsense, but I'm trying to weigh my options. I know the clicks can add up fast, but on the other hand I know of several CPA offers that are $10-$12 a pop.

    I have a couple other questions for you if you'll PM me...

    for surehits, just target a really long tail keyword that you can get on page 1 for. they pay the best.

    I should email them back for a reconsider. After I submitted my app they just emailed back and said no. I do rank on page one for several kw's just not my main kw.

    Maybe I should send them a screenshot of my analytics account showing my avg positions lol

    Ya but even if you convert 1:20 clicks to a completion for a CPA offer (pretty good rate for passive advertising/non incent) 20 clicks x $1 = $20.

    I don't mess with AdSense at all in most niches but this is one that's an exception for me because you're not getting $.05 or $.30 clicks.
