    Hey guys,

    I started a new music website and I'm currently getting 3-4k hits to my site per day. I tried putting adsense in the sidebar and below the title and out of several hundred impressions, got one click for $.05. I took those off and put up CPA email submit banners for the iphone 4 and a tequila survey email submit in the same spot the adsense used to be at. 27 clicks so far but no conversions.

    What is the best way to monetize this traffic? most of my traffic seems to be around college aged from the USA and around 70:30 guys:girls. since banners and ppc aren't working, i'm starting to think about flipping or stuffing cookies but would prefer other options to doing that.

    I also forgot to mention, I have collected over 2k Facebook likes for the site's facebook page and it grows by a few hundred a day

    Well you should think about what's drawing them to your site in the first place, what keywords are you using? Find CPA products around your keywords and give them what they are looking for. Since your hits are coming from young college age people, then I'm sure there's a lot that you can offer them and make money off it at the same time.

    But like I said, do your research and I'm sure you will find a winning combination.

    You get several thousand hits per day, but you only tested adsense for a few hundred impressions? I don't think that is going to give you a really good idea of the money that you could make. Same with the CPA.

    If you can keep getting this amount of traffic, you will quickly climb the alexa rankings, and you could sell some ad space on a buysellads like website. They offer steady income once you get approved with them.

    ya i could try adsense for a little longer.

    most of my traffic i'm getting from social media and submitting music playlists to other sites. i'm at on page 5 for my main keyword in google and #9 for my secondary keyword so once those get ranked, i should be getting another few hundred views per day.

    i was thinking of a content locker but my site is spreading via word of mouth so i dont really want to start turning people away (at least yet). i'll definitely wait a week or two to see alexa rankings shoot up so i can sell banner space on my site

    You got the right idea then. Keep building backlinks to your site for your 2 keywords. Once you get ranked, you can always put a content locker on like one day every week, just to see what kind of money you make.

    I have a Facebook related Email Submit that pays 1,5$ per lead. We can integrate somehow on your site, and make few hundreds each day. I will take care of everything.

    If interested let me know.
    Thanks!
