    Namecheap hosting is quite bad in my experience! I would not suggest using it.

    Setting up my website as I am writing this message..

    Posts with photographs get more engagement (including Likes, remarks, shares, and clicks) than articles with text alone. Optimal measurements for pictures that look good on Facebook is 1200 X 628 pixels. For crisper, cleaner-looking images on Facebook, it is possible to double click the pixel dimensions but keep the ratio for an image that is 150 DPI (dots per inch). Facebook will compress the picture for the screen but nothing is going to be lost and your picture will look crisp.
    Driving more traffic from Facebook to your website is all well and good, but what they discover when they arrive can make all the difference in turning a visitor into a client. Websites that look out of date can drive a visitor away, never go back. Interesting, modern-looking websites with optimal functionality oblige visitors to remain on your website and explore further, which increases your chances of new business.

    Have you thought about paying larger accounts for a larger profit?

    PS. I'd definitely not share your site with anyone here.

    - Should be fine, I had issues with it due to the spikes in traffic I was getting.
    - Before
    - Nope, just a normal fee

    Thanks!

    I don't really understand, I'm not using Facebook or trying to gain clients.


    Thankyou! I have but the quizzes would need to be much broader in order to get access to larger pages as there aren't many large pages based on TV shows. I haven't done a broad quiz but I would love to do so.

    So what ad network are you using to monetize your site exactly ? And what is the main reason you are using it over adsense ?

    Nice journey @jamesdarby108 .

    I have a question

    1. Do you add images for each quiz question?

    For example let's pretend we are making a "stranger things" quiz would you make make 25/30 questions without images or add random images related to that particular tv serie for each question?

    I am asking this since it might be more appealing but it's also a bit time consuming.

    Mentioned it a bunch before, Hooligan Media. Using it over adsense because they banned me and aren't fond of big spikes in traffic.

    Thanks!

    I do, photo for every question and I try and make it related to the question. In the future I might just use any photo relating to the show and not specifically relating to the question.

    Its not exactly headerbidding. Its an ad network that have their own personal setup.

    Pure organic results of my Quiz site. Just only with 24 articles (quiz) and only 5 of them have been optimized for keywords (others are random quizzes without focusing on keywords). 2 articles bring me this traffic. I hope to post another 50+ articles to the site and hopefully, it will generate at least $10 per day without doing any promoting on social or other platforms. Recently it generates average of $1.2 per day. I received an average of 30 clicks per day. But the concern is CPC is very low. it is no more than $0.05

    I found 100+ keywords to create quizzes and within next month I will create posts for those keywords.

    Wow! That's a great result! Congrats!
    How old is your site? Have you built any backlinks to it?
    Also, do your top keywords have a high monthly search volume?
    Yes, adsense CPC is very low now, it's the first quarter if the year, it may improve later. Have you tried applying to other ad networks? Like CPM ones?
    However, your current earnings are great anyway. If you only scale the site about 30 times you'll be earning around $1K a month! That's not too hard.

    01. Thanks, mate :)
    02. I created site last May I guess. However, I didn't pay much attention to the site until September. For that time period, I only posted some random non-keyword based articles. I only created profile backlinks and some comment backlinks only. Still, the DA of site is 12. September I posted 2 keyword-based quizzes and those two articles bring me this traffic.

    03. Yes. one has 6000 search volume and other has 9000 volume
    04. No I didn't apply for other networks. Now I have integrated my site to Ezoic.
    05. Thanks. Yes I have planned to post another 50 or so articles during next month or so. I hope it will bring me some good revenue :)
