    Hi!

    I have an US targeted food related blog with a lot of recipes and some keyword optimized articles for adsense, and had a simple facebook fan page for it for a long time around 1200 page likes. I only sharing the recipe links with nice pictures.

    3 days ago something happened and those likes start to raise very much, around 10-15K new like per day (without making any changes) now I'm around 70K+ likes in 3 days and still growing insanely...really strange.

    My small audience was mostly from USA before, but these 70K likes is 90% Indian users. I have 3-4K Indian visits a day to my blog now from Facebook, with 3-4% Adsense CTR but with very low CPC for India.

    Any idea how to monetize my fan page or my blog for this big intrest from Indian people??

    I already put an affiliate banner of an Indian dating service (Shaadi) to my blog, but I didn't know much about the company, just read a suggestion that can worth a try for Indian traffic. I also shared an other recipe related fanpage of mine which gained ~5K new like from this traffic.

    Any other way to ride this "popularity" (without harm my estabilished site and fanpage) and get more money with it ? :)

    Thanks in advance!

    why not sell, POTS and PANS? or anything related to cooking? why in the world are you putting in dating affiliates? lol

    Have relevant products and you will convert in sales!

    LOW ctr/cpc + High volume traffic = steady income / month..
    Focus on growing your network, and keep only your adsense ads, without messing up your blog/site with annoying ads.
    just try to make your page bigger / richer in content, and also your blog..
    if you can, try to grow a backup page.

    I added a few new content, and also re-shared some older popular post to keep the fanpage alive till new content get ready. Backup page is also a good idea. I only shared my existing one before

    You right, I don't want to mess my blog. I have some non-adsense ad space that I can change to something else, but not sure whats converting well for India traffic... (besides nothing)

    As I know Indian traffic mostly looking for freebies, informations, not really buying anything :I

    Is there any exceptions? I only heard this marriage finding thing

    Its great to hear that you are getting that much traffic.

    But the traffic that you are getting is just hit and Miss.
    They wont convert that much and if they do you wont be in a profit unless its too much

    Freebies can convert for you surely keep testing that's the best we can suggest as no one can explain you properly unless you give it a shot.

    Indian traffic is good only for adsense. You won't be able to make any sales, believe me. But why not just try linking with some clickbank products and try for some days.

    indian traffic = waste of time bro . sorry to say that but indian traffic is very low with all the networks. Adsence , clickbank , CPA , PPD .... the only thing advice i can give you is open an online shopping website yourself and sell various products to them (only for india).

    You can make lots of money with that. Otherwise with american and European companies you're not gonna make anything big.
