    I hope I have not posted this in the wrong section. I have a social networking website I started about a month ago. I have about 4500 members. I wanted to ask the members of this forum, what are all of the ways I could monetize the website. Also where could I look to get more emails to invite more members. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hmm You could use any number of the great email scrapers out there to get email, HAM Harvester is sold here but I know there are plenty of ones for free or cracked versions of good scrapers.

    Monetization wise you could stick up some google adsense or equivalent though I doubt this would result in many clicks. How about setting up some CPA offers or some affiliate ads.

    Also I don't wanna piss on ya bonfire but social networks are notoriously hard to monetize as they are generally (apart from the real big ones) only used by people spamming for backlinks.

    Do you check for common IPs on accounts? I would suggest you check that the 4500 members you have isn't in fact 3 people.

    P.S Don't post it here unless you want 584k accounts by the morning :)

    Depends on what your site is about you can use CPC offers from shopping comparison sites. Adsense is good but for very specific niche those sites are good because you will put stuff in the eyes of interested people.
