    Hey guys! Maybe you can give me a hand!

    I've started a Picking Up/Dating/Relationships site, url here:
    The site is going quite fine in terms of traffic - it didn't fully take off but it's still getting 500-1000 unique visits per day (through FB, Twitter, SU, Google, etc.) So far the subscriber numbers are rising and the site is making SOME money through Adsense. But I just hate it - I get sometimes 30 clicks per day and get 2-3$, no more. Some days I do get 5-10$, but never much more.

    I feel that I got decent traffic that keeps growing and that I could be doing something much better than those pennies. I was thinking on switching to CPA networks to give it a try, to see whether I can make a few more bucks!

    But what do you guys think? Which could be the best way to fully monetize something as this? Any advice is appreciated!! :)

    more adsense blocks in articles, sell adspace, promote niche products from CB or other dating/pickup offers.

    Makes sense - I do have more ads, those of chitika that just show up for the SE traffic. Thing is that so far my PR has been stuck and the BH campaigns have shown no effect so far.

    Still, I was looking for new channels to start making some new money. I decided that firstly I might take a look for affiliates and start selling and pitching their products (and seeing whether they are really going to help my readers) but I might like to do something else in the meantime. That's why I was thinking on maybe CPA or asking if some of you guys have any ideas that could help out too.

    Thanks again!

    Have profiled you sites visitors properly... IF you know what they like/hate you can sell more and make money easily - always think like an advertiser -

    Profile them
    Age 35
    married
    no kids
    like porn
    hate monkeys

    sell them ?

    I have an idea. ;)

    This could be exactly what you're looking for. Seems to fit your niche perfectly.

    Just checked out your site (feb 2014) and don't know if you have any affiliate programs? I found a contact link on your site & will also contact you that way too!

    By selling them an "Advanced Pickup Secrets to Get the Hotest Woman Wet for You" ebook.

    You can write it yourself if you are experienced in the field or by hiring a pickup artist to do it for you.


    This should give you diamonds and gold.
