    You can try out image overlay/slider ads which goes well with image content. I don't remember the name of it.

    I would start off by looking at the sites you've mentioned and how they are monetizing. ;)

    Yep, sound advise, if other guys have been in the market a while, they will know a thing or two. Once you've emulated them, start split testing. 3k per day is enough to get some great split test results. You could probably even do 3 groups instead of just 2. I'd let each one run for a week unless something is really tanking and not showing any promise at all.

    I would use adsense and clickbank. You can also check out the programs that cj.com offers. You can find some gems in there, just use anything funny/humor niche related.

    Hi Mate.

    Not sure where you are from, but in the UK, you can find Premium Rate Prank phone calls, where you can for example, call your friend and then connect to a woman saying he has got her daughter pregnant, an angry guy demanding a bill he never had etc.. and you can listen in and laugh :)

    Just an idea :)

    My blog is getting around 5k visitors a day from Twitter / Facebook, but currently in the process of stage one of split-testing with Adsense.

    Current CTR is 1 in 1000 clicks, so obviously some way to go. Google seem to ignore a hell of a lot of clicks and only count a small % as valid and pay you for it. There lies the problem with Adsense.

    If your audience is teens, which it probably is if it's coming from Twitter, then humour does seem to work well - it works well on Twitter so can't see any reason why once the traffic is on your site, it won't be just as successful.

    Once you have the traffic there are 100s of ways to monetize. It's all about test, test and... test.
