    Hi

    I'm currently running a facebook page with 35k likes alongside a blog - currently I have around 30 articles all unique and original content, my blog is currently receiving around 8k-10k traffic daily, 80% of which is coming directly from my facebook page and I'm looking to try and monetize the traffic.

    I'm familiar with adsense, having used it in the past on an older blog (which I have since sold) and youtube - however this was 4+ years ago and I'm led to believe its much harder to get accepted these days and that google doesn't really like facebook traffic. Anyone experiences problems with adsense from facebook traffic?


    Just wondering if anyone has any advice about whats my best options?
    I've recently applied for adsense but not heard anything as of yet.

    Someone recommended taboola to me - has anyone had any experiences with this network?

    If my adsense application is declined, would it be worth buying an account from here? or would i be better off going with completely different network all together?

    For the record most of my articles are based around viral topics (Celeb news, world news, banter etc...) So i've often had a few of my posts go viral on facebook.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated (and sorry for such a long post :p )

    Viral News.

    Currently I'm writing around 2 articles per day - all original content. Once i know this is profitable I'll be looking to upscale to around 4-5 per day.

    Sorry I'm at 45k likes I hit the 3 by mistake.. normally anywhere from 10k to 40k depends on the post tbh and whether it goes viral or not. Its blown up over the past few weeks though after 5 of my posts went viral which is why I'm looking to monetize it from here.

    For the record its not one of them average viral news sites that you see plastered all over facebook these days, as im working on specific niche but could still be classed as viral news. (I'm trying not to give much away as there seems to be very little competition at the moment)

    I'm running MGID and Adsense ads same time. I placed 2 Adsense banners and 3/2 under article MGID widget. Honestly I get pretty good revenue. My average RPM with MGID is $1.05. While you are waiting for Adsense approval, try to run a short test with MGID ads.

    I would try to build an email list too, you can offer exclusive content and sell affiliate products.
