    My site had about 20 quizes when I applied for adsense, with 100 word intro in each quiz. Adsense approved my site in ~3 weeks.

    The site or the quizzes? My site is general, but my quizzes are niche in some way

    hi bro, what host are you using and what's their price?

    I paid for a shoutout on a large IG page, the traffic that came used up my plan's resources and subsequently making the site unusable/inaccessible. At max the requests were a little over 2k... I'm so disappointed at hostinger. Asked for a better plan to upgrade to with better resources... the prices are so outrageous than I can afford right now...

    so what are you using? what are the specs of the plan and price?

    thanks

    Business plan on 1&1 wordpress wordpress. I upgraded it in a panic when I had the same issues as you. Turns out I didn't even need it. When I consistently send traffic I'll be getting dedicated hosting.

    My cpm went up after only putting one ad per page as that's what the adblade support suggested. Also remember, that cpm includes the impressions from all other countries, adblade only pays for US traffic. Your cpm still isn't great with that factored in so I'd suggest keep trying and seeing if the cpm stats stay at what they currently are.

    Well, stat wise all my plan upgrade did was give me more storage so I'm not even sure it helped. The main thing that needs upgrading is going from shared to dedicated hosting, but that's expensive.

    Why don't you try promoting dropshipping products or POD? Try to sneak promote them in your quiz maybe.

    In a quiz site model, my advice would be to save these types of promotions for an email list. When visitors are on the site, CPM tends to be the best way to go as it doesn't interrupt their quiz experience. Quiz-takers are unlikely to want to click away from the quiz to browse online as it disrupts their quiz results. But you could absolutely ask for an email address at the end of the quiz and then send offers to your list.

    What would be even better is to ask the users email at the end of the quiz and tell them that you will send the results to the email address. I have seen many quiz sites do that - this way you get a massive email list on top of your CPM ads money.

    I'm not that keen on the whole dropship model but the main issue is when a user clicks on a link within Instagram it opens a browser within Instagram, this would be hard to get someone to buy within it.

    Thanks! Welcome.

    It's probably worth a shot but I'm not keen on the idea of forcing a user to enter their email for results.

    how were you able to apply and got approval from Adblade?
    Were you getting 500k pageviews a month?

    And any special trick?

    Wasn't getting 500k pageviews, I'm pretty sure they accept a lot of sites under that amount. I just entered my details and applied.
