I'm just getting into arbitrage and so far I've created a viral blog with trending stories and videos that I find all over the web. I started loading my blog with content about 30 or so stories so far and try to add a story a day if I can. Now I'm trying to drive traffic to test out the ads I've placed on it. I use Nativeads.com as they approved me very quickly and I liked the support much better than content.ad which also approved very easy but I've heard horror stories about payouts etc. The way I've been driving traffic right now is just through Facebook and my twitter. so about 50 to 100 pageviews a day but I've had to invest in the odd facebook ad in order to do that. I'm only making about $0.20 to $0.40 a day (on a good day) so obviously facebook ads and my measly little traffic I generate is not really working. I've already spent around $40 on facebook and made nothing in return. Now my next step is to use Nativeads or taboola to drive traffic but I'm nervous that my investment isn't going to pay off. I talked to Taboola and set up my account now I'm in limbo.. Do I take the plunge and invest a couple hundred bucks or wait till my site matures a bit more? I'm working on getting indexed and search engine optimization right now to hopefully boost some organic traffic as well as building my audience on social media. I'm hoping someone here could give some advise on driving traffic through native ads. Is it worth the investment or is there a better way to drive engaging traffic?
