    My site is www.epicfailwin.com it is my whitehat site and well for the past month I have constantly been getting 2k visitors from stumble upon a day and 10 or so google searches a day and that is rising as well. I need some advice on what I should do with my ads where I should put it to capitalize on this massive traffic. These people are also staying on the site as well! As I right this I have had 1798 Visitors and with that 5603 page views. Should I sign up for a CPM network or something. Please help me out! Thanks! :D

    Not a bad site, are those all unique pictures? You know by posting that here, a lot of people are just going to copy your site exactly.

    They are not unique two or three of them was taken by me. Sadly I figured people would copy the site. What are your thoughts platinvm to increase revenue?

    One of the first things you should do is sign up for a crazyegg.com account. It runs like google analytics, but will show you where users are clicking on your site, even if it's not a live area but a blank background peice. it'll give you a litte more insite as to where to place your ads and where the hotspots are on your site.

    Holy Crap a PR2! Damn didn't know that thanks kaizersuzi! I have no idea how long it took to be updated. The site is really really new. My awstats says I have had 35938 visitors in the course of 4 and a half months when the site was created.

    my advise to you is get a mod to delete this thread and ask some personally. Almost any Jr VIP would spend a couple of minutes pointing out were you should put your ads. If some one points out were to put your ads in public and you come back and say you are making money. It would be a goldmine for any leecher.

    Just my 2 cents

    you are using adsense, cooool, I think that adsense CPM is good!

    just play with adsense placement/colors, add an ad in the top /336×280/, and try,test and compare your results, don't follow one method kingofbigmac ...

    Not a bad site at all. got me cracking up on a few of the pictures. Anyways, my advice to you is get your site better monitized with ad placements. You do have ads on your site which is great but the placements are not so great.

    Get some placements in between some of your post, have image ads displaying about the same size as the pictures you are posting on their.

    On the right side of your page on your sidebar, I would place some text link ads before or under the navigation.

    What you also may look at is maybe having some peel away ads displaying or even some full page ads showing. That would boost some clicks.

    MAKE A MAILING LIST. Give out something daily or weekly of some funny jokes, pictures, or whatever you want to give out. Build your mailing list up and promote targeted offers or products to your mailing list time to time. I would not over promote anything otherwise it would just get people mad at you and label you as spam.

    Hope any of this helps you.

    Best of luck and again, great site you have going there.

    It is an entertainment/funny pics site which is very well known for low-quality (=low money) but high volume traffic. Almost impossible to sell anything direct or through affiliates and difficult to get anything out of CPC (Adsense and others).

    My best bet would be one of the dying breeds of CPM popup advertisers if you wish to stay whitehat. Otherwise you can use the traffic to promote some of your blackhat ventures: cookiestuffing, iframing different websites to inflate stats, tricking people into CPA offers, ...

    in your single post page, put a 336x288 block just after the title/permalink and another one after the picture. you should have read the autoblogging tuts by ernesthemingway. great stuff!

    If you receiving a lot of page views, check out some CPM companies, for one advert you'll find you can boost your income by quite a bit. If I had used CPM companies from day 1, I would of made a lot more money then I have from my whitehat websites. :)
